In this article, we’ll introduce you to the most beautiful building materials in Minecraft that exist in abundance. Players can easily harvest these materials without relying on complicated measures such as trading with villagers or farming mobs. Are you curious to know what these materials are?

The most beautiful building materials in Minecraft don’t necessarily have to be the rarest ones. Some extremely common materials can contribute to creating stunning and impressive structures worth marveling at. Let’s explore these versatile building blocks in Minecraft that satisfy this criterion!

You can see all parts here:

5. Concrete

Since its introduction in patch 1.12, concrete has become one of the most favored building materials in Minecraft. Its bright colors and sturdy appearance make it useful for both decoration and construction. Concrete has a clearer color than terracotta and is not as susceptible to fire as wool. With these advantages, concrete is truly deserving of being called one of the most beautiful building materials in Minecraft.

Crafting concrete is also straightforward. Players can produce colored concrete powder by combining 4 sand + 4 gravel + 1 dye, and then immerse it in water to create solid concrete blocks. Both concrete powder and concrete are excellent building materials, and skilled Minecraft players can combine both in a single wall to reduce monotony due to the smoothness of these materials.

Note that when building with concrete, players need to take precautions against Creepers as their explosion resistance is significantly lower than that of stone. Cleverly use light sources in the game to prevent mobs from spawning and protect your structures. This has become much easier with Minecraft 1.18, as now you only need to ensure a light level above 0.

6. Snow

It might sound surprising, but snow is actually one of the most beautiful building materials in Minecraft. It shares some similarities with quartz mentioned in Part 1 of this article, but it has a major advantage: abundance. You can find large quantities of snow in cold environments, or simply farm snow at home by creating snow golems.

This building material has some drawbacks, such as very poor blast resistance, with hardness only 1/7th that of stone. If a Creeper pays a visit to a structure made of snow, chances are you’ll have to rebuild a bit. However, snow does not melt under strong light and is not affected by water “erasing,” making it a favored building material among Minecraft players.

When using snow as a building material, players can create modern structures that look incredibly beautiful with their bright white or light blue colors. Thin layers of snow can also be used to create smooth white carpets, covering secrets hidden beneath the floor.

7. Sand

Sand is a highly common material in Minecraft, found in abundance in desert biomes. It is also very versatile, with various states, from regular sand blocks suitable for walls to harder variants suitable for decoration or ceilings. The vibrant yellow color and patterns of sand are not too flashy, making it extremely compatible with structures outside the desert or modern houses.

In addition to using sand to create clean, flat walls, as shown above, you can also combine sand with similar-colored wood to build detailed walls that look very organized and suitable for fantasy styles. This versatility makes sand one of the most beautiful and versatile building materials in Minecraft.

There is also red sand, another version of sand with a beautiful color. Combining these two types of sand will create outstanding structures with a Middle Eastern or African vibe, easily attracting the attention of other players in the server.

8. Wood

This material is often overlooked by players in the early days, but wood is always an excellent building material in Minecraft. Although it is prone to catching fire when placed near flames, it offers diversity in appearance, allowing players to easily use color coordination to add details and depth to their wooden structures. Players can freely unleash their imagination and aesthetic sense when choosing this material to build their abode.

Indeed, when deciding to build a house with wood, players can choose from… a dozen different types of wood, each with various colors. In addition to common wood types found in the Overworld, Mojang has also added two types of wood in the Nether to provide more options for players. Obtaining wood is extremely easy; you just need to pick up an axe and start chopping trees!

Apart from being susceptible to fire (which can be addressed by turning off the fire spread effect), wood also has the drawback of not having vibrant or smooth colors. However, players can turn this weakness into an advantage by using it for structures requiring a vintage or rustic appearance.

9. Wool

Coming from gentle sheep, wool is an unconventional building material in real life but feasible in Minecraft. With 16 different colors, players can have large quantities of wool by directly dyeing sheep and regularly shearing them. Players eager to have more wool can raise them in a pen and use redstone to automatically shear the wool, but you can still manually harvest wool to have enough for construction.

The advantage of wool lies in its bright and diverse colors, coupled with a gentle appearance that makes it suitable for fairy-tale-like structures. Wool can also be used as carpets, banners, or canopies to add more color to monotonous structures, especially suitable for villages or bases from a “One Thousand and One Nights” land.

Like wood, the downside of wool is its susceptibility to fire and lack of blast resistance, so players need to be careful with mobs and fire when building with this material. Their vibrant colors also require players to have good color coordination skills to avoid creating structures that offend the eyes of viewers.

10. Conclusion

Through the nine types of materials we introduced in this series of articles, Minecraft players can undoubtedly find the most beautiful building formula for themselves. However, you may need to know how to coordinate the colors of these materials to create the “coolest” or most impressive structures possible. This experience in color coordination will be shared by 9minecraft in an upcoming article – stay tuned!
