You start a new world. You build a house. But the house is sort of... dull. What it needs is FURNITURE! This tutorial will teach you how to make simple Minecraft furniture!

Let's start!

Chair:
This is very easy. Just place a stair (or more if you want a bench), and for the arm rests, put blank signs on the side!
Easy right?

Table:
Of course, you need a table, if you have a chair! Now there are many table versions out there but i will show you my two favorite kinds! Forst of is mostly used by everyone. Just put fence on the floor, and a pressure plate on top of it. Done! Now for the second version, you need a piston and a redstone torch. Place a piston (it has to be facing up) and underneath it the torch. It will extract, and look like a nice table!

Don't forget - chairs and tables go together very well (duh....)

Fireplace:
Easy. just build any prefered shape around two blocks on the floor, that have to be netherrack. LIght the netherrack on fire and you have yourself a nice little fireplace!

Now for the kitchen!

Fridge:
For a nice little fridge, place two dispensers, one on top of the other. Next to them (preferably on the right) place two (let's say stone) blocks, one on top of another, and on them, place buttons. To finish it up, place an iron door infront of the dispensers, and you're done! If you didn't understand this, don't worry, i will post pictures of it on the end!
Or a smaller, but more compact fridge, using only two blocks instead of four: http://i.imgur.com/pwSiT.png (suggested by Jappadoodlez).

Stove:
Well of course you need a furnace, but now - a stove! Place a block on the ground (better if it's next to a furnace - it gives a better look) and on top of it a pressure plate. It's that simple! I mean the stove doesn't really work, so it's more decor but it looks nice!

Tip - Place a furnace or two, and next to it a stove. Above that leave one block space, and then put (again let's say stone) blocks over it (will be shown in the picture on the end!)

There! That's done! Now - the bathroom!

Toilet:
All houses need this! Like for the table, there are many designs for this too! I will show you the most realistic looking one. Place a cauldron, and fill it with water, and on top of it place a trapdoor. Done! Now... Don't let the lid up!

Sink:
The same as toilet, just without the trapdoor, and a block behind it. On that block place a lever, that will face the cauldron. Thanks to JoojiPooji for recomending this one!
You can also use a painting for a "mirror". See it in the bathroom picture below.

Shower:
Ahh, yes, the glorius shower... Quite simple. It has to be in the corner, for best looks! OPTIONALLY - Place a slab on the floor - and then glass panels, on the sides of the corner blocks, and water down the middle. Now, it is a bit confusing, so i will put a picture of this as well on the end!

Other ideas!!

Watercooler:
Just a block on the floor, and on it a button. On top this block put an ice block, and you have a watercooler!

Basketball hoop:
A bit tricky. Put about 2 fences next to eachother. Ant two on top of them, and two on top of them. On top on the third pair place a four by three block square. And on the bottom two blocks put iron bars... Yea... You didn't get it eh?
Don't worry! Ill post a picture!

Chandeliers:
Easy this one is! Put one fence on the ceiling, and on each side of the first fence one more fence. And on the secondary four fences, put glowstone. Done!

Comfy, colourfull couch
Want to add some color? Well then this couch is the right for you! Now for it you need slab floors, so it will look better! Now let's say you want it 3 blocks wide. Remove 3 slabs, and place any wool (or other material if you prefer, I like wool the most) so there will be half of the wool you placed looking out. Behind that do the same, but place another 3 pieces of wool on top. You now have a couch, with a back-rest-thingy, but no arm rests! easy! Now i prefer you use the same slabs you used for the floor. now place 2 slabs on each side if the seat, and 3 slabs on each side of the back-rest. If confused, just folllow the picture!
Couch #1

OR an easier version:http://i.imgur.com/6Ea6U.png

Technic stuff:

TV:
There are TONS of TV designs out there, so let me introduce you the easiest one. Put four blocks into a square and on it a painting (the painting has to cover all of them). On each side put buttons, like this:
TV
ubzTpng

On the sides of the room are loud speakers.

Computer:
Extremely easy. Put a block on the floor (next to a wall) and on the wall a painting that has to cover only one block. And on the block you place a pressure plate. Combine it with a chair, and it will look like this:
Computer

Also check a few cool designs;a BBQ, a street light, a piano, and one of those... beach things... (full piano and BBQ design credit goes to minecraftfurniture.net): http://i.imgur.com/NLG96.jpg

Right... The blog id probably finished, maybe ill add a few fixes until the next round, we'll see... Anyway, here are the promised pictures!
Just open the spoilers to see 'em!

And of course some other useful tips:
-Use spider web, as the net, when making a tennis court.
-Do not cramp lots of furniture in one small place.
-Dig two down and on the bottom place glowstone and over it glass for a stylish look.
-Put dirt on the floor, trapdoors on it's four sides and flowers on top for a pretty flower pot.
-Make a decor around you bed, giving it a more royal look. Something like this:http://i.imgur.com/bjWUx.png
-When placing torches outsude, put them on 1 fence for a "Tiki" look.
-Pay atteniton to little things like: http://i.imgur.com/RBxhm.png
-You can make almost everything in Minecraft -BBQ grills, fish tanks, cars, trampolines, vending machines, bars, poker/pool tables, actual pools, tons of decors, and many MANY more!
-Use wool, to make an interesting carpet!
-Don't think that the ideas i posted are all the possibilities - nope! There are alot of versions of probably everything I posted here, and other stuff I haven't! So... Well... Go make your house look awesome!!!

This took quite some work, considering Chrome crashed, the first time i was writing it, aaand it's my first blog, so HAVE MERCY! And... diamond/favourite of course!

PS: for all your furniture needs go to http://minecraftfurniture.net/

WOOT reached 50 diamonds!!! Thanks everybody! :3

Again, I would like to thank MCF (Minecraft furniture) for making an awesome website, and not being angry at me, when I copied a few ideas! Thanks guys!

AND before we finish up, here's a few tweaked ideas from CNaro:
For the chairs, you can add designs to the signs, such as @@@@@@@@@@ or ///////////////. For the fireplace, you can add some iron bars around it for a modern look. You can put food in the dispensers to feed urself! I have a better idea for the stove. Dig out a 1 block hole in your wall, then dig 1 block underneath the hole you just broke. Place netherack there and light it. Then place a glass block covering it. Finally add trapdoors to the side and a pressure plate on the top. BTW, I have never tested this. I just came up with it. If it works, can you add me on the "additional credit part". For the shower, I made a piston-powered one, but you can just use a lever, like the sink. What about a fish tank, eh? Make a water cooler, then destroy the ice block, drop fish in there, and place back the ice block. For the hoop, instead of iron bars, how 'bout cobwebs? For the tip, make it out of slabs. And here's a throne. It's on a slab floor. And for the sink, you can put 2 more levers; the left one facing left and vice versa for the right. That can be for changing temperatures.

My tutorial was simple, but for more advanced stuff, listen to this guy! His PMC page:http://www.planetminecraft.com/member/cnaro/
CreditMCF - http://minecraftfurniture.net/ - for being badass, ang giving me some ideas ! ///// CNaro - for tweaking, upgrading and making some of my ideas more advanced ! Thanks bro!

i dont like the traditional way of doing the chair so i look for a mod with wool stairs adn i make a confy colourful couchchair
with the table you could do a glass block (on slab floor) with a slab ontop and you have a glass coffe table (maybe even pressureplate ontop)

I think you should post some more versions of each furniture type... For instance there are a lot more chandelier designs (my favorite ones here!) :]
Well, I only posted the basics here.

Oh, okay :)
Nice tutorial, but you should make two alternative fridges. You can use the one you have there already, and then I made one. It goes like this:
A dispenser on the bottom and a [block] on top. In front, put an Iron door like you said, but put the button on the side of the block. Good for people with space on one of the sides of their fridge and don't need to much room for food.
Either way, awesome tutorial, can't wait to pimp out my Minecraft save :D Diamond for you and a favorite if I need to reference back.
That is a good idea, I think I will put it into the tutorial! Thanks!
Nice guide :D
Thanks dude!
i've seen better versions of some of those, i liked the TV tho
Meh potato, potato...
A Light And switch: Put a redstone lamp in the wall and then put a lever beside it. Simple! :D
Yea, a bit redstone, and you could light up a whole building, with only one lever!

It SHOULD be impossible, but due to an error in the game's engine, it works.
Lucky huh?

Very nice!

Here are some more designs:

A stove with an exhaust chimney

A similar but slightly different fridge
(the fridge only takes up two blocks. The stuff on the right isn't part of it)
The designs are nice, but i wont add them, since i already have enough, but they still look great! Oh, and thanks!

The furniture itself that you are trying to use for your tutorial is overused and not the best in my opinion but the tutorial itself is good.
Well, as long as the tutorial is good... But I did make this for those less experienced, so if you're a pro, than there's no need for you to be in the TUTORIALS section...

Want to make this blog even better? update it with images of the structures you are talking about.
There's alot of images, so i put links to them instead. I think it's better like this, to not ruin the whole thing, since there's a lot of pictures.

Have you tried spoilers?
I have, but i'll keep it this way, since I needed about 1 day to make it as it is, so I rather not mess with it.

This was well done and had some very interesting furniture in it. I especially like the idea of a fridge : ) I do agree with camo7 though. I know it would be a lot of extra work but putting up pics would definitely help boost your chance of winning!
Well, if everyone thinks it's better like this, I guess ill do that! And thanks for your rating! :3

EDIT: Both of you were right, it is much better like this! I only used spoilers for the main pictures, because if I used them in the tips section, it would be too cramped and messy, but the way it is now - i like it! Thanks for both of your advices!

:D Thanks for the link-<3 MCF Forever! But make sure you don't just get ideas from our website, then proceed to put in a blog that is in a contest. What if snugsites made one, and everyone said that he copied Furniture Ideas from you. Please give MCF credit instead of giving a random link. Again-thx for advertisement!
Oh, I will, and not all the ideas are form MCF just a few!

EDIT: MCF is now in the credits, and I thank them for giving me some ideas! :3
