What is a Fireplace in Minecraft?
A Fireplace in Minecraft is a decorative structure much like a Fireplace in real life. It adds aesthetic appeal and can create a cozy atmosphere within a player’s virtual home or structure.
But it can also be functional and provide some helpful uses like cooking food and providing light.
A Fireplace can be created using various building materials that are not flammable, including Cobblestone, Stone Bricks, and Stone Stairs.
It also includes some source of fuel like wood or if you want to have an infinitely burning Fireplace, Netherrack.
A Fireplace can give off smoke that will go up to 10 blocks high, making it one of the best structures to help you easily find your way back to your base.
A Fireplace also emits a light level of 15 and can be used as a reliable light source.
There are many Fireplace ideas and designs, but in this article, we’ll focus on a basic and safe Fireplace that you can add to your home as a beginner. Let’s learn how to make a Fireplace in Minecraft.
How to Make a Fireplace in Minecraft
Things You’ll Need:
Here are the stuff that you would need to create a Brick Fireplace.
- Flint and Steel
- Iron Bars
Cobblestones are one of the most common resources in Minecraft. All you have to do is dig a few layers underground, and you’ll have an infinite supply of Cobblestone. You can use a Pickaxe for faster mining.
You can get sticks by breaking tree leaves or you can craft them from Wooden Planks using your Crafting Table.
To obtain Netherrack, you need to venture into the Nether dimension. It can be found abundantly throughout the Nether, usually forming the ground and walls.
Simply mine Netherrack using a Pickaxe to collect it. Be cautious of hostile mobs and the hazardous environment in the Nether.
Flint and Steel
This will be used to ignite the fire inside your Fireplace. Flint & Steel is made using Flint and Iron Ingots.
Mine Iron Ore with a Pickaxe, smelt it into Iron Ingots using a Furnace and fuel, then craft Iron Bars with Iron Ingots using your Crafting Table.
Step 1: Make the Fireplace Structure
There is no exact structure to be followed when making a basic Fireplace. You can start by placing Cobblestone blocks as a base in a square shape with one side open on one corner of your wall. Y
ou can be flexible with the shape and size that you want as long as the Cobblestones keep the fire from spreading.
Next is the Chimney. You can make a Chimney using Cobblestone or Stone Bricks. This is where your creativity is one of the main ingredients.
So let your imagination run wild and train it by starting with a simple Fireplace.
Step 2: Place the Netherrack
The Netherrack will serve as your infinite fuel source. Dig holes 1 block deep in the floor of your Fireplace and place the Nettherack there. Then using your Flint & Steel, ignite the Netherrack to start your Fireplace.
Step 3: Secure with Iron Bars
The Iron Bars will serve as a barrier on the front of your Fireplace so that fire won’t spread to your lovely house and you won’t damage yourself.
Lastly, you can also add decorative blocks like Wooden Logs and more to make your Fireplace cozy and welcoming.
