Our Minecraft Floor Ideas guide will showcase a total of 15 floor designs that players can try out including medieval, rustic and more!

Floors can typically be used to line homes, shops, schools, or any other building in Minecraft, and this is why players might need to know the best Minecraft Floor Ideas.

Important: To have the best house or shop out of all players in Minecraft, players should try out a mix of Medieval, Rustic, Modern, and Miscellaneous designs!

Key Takeaways
  • Versatile Floor Designs: Players can explore various floor design ideas with a vast selection of blocks, textures, patterns, and colors.
  • Modern Style: Modern designs feature blocks such as quartz, concrete, andesite, diorite, and Blackstone, creating a sleek grey/white/black palette for a contemporary feel.
  • Rustic Charm: Rustic designs utilize blocks like oak planks, logs, birch, and stripped wood to evoke a natural, outdoorsy vibe in homes, shops, and other structures.
  • Medieval Ambiance: Medieval designs focus on blocks like nephrite, stone, bricks, and furnaces, capturing the essence of the bygone era.
  • Creative Miscellany: Miscellaneous designs involve unconventional choices like barrels, kelp blocks, furnaces, and bee nests, offering unique and out-of-the-box floor design possibilities.


Let’s discuss a few modern Minecraft Floor Ideas allowing players to use their tiles and blocks to develop beautiful masterpieces. 



One of the first designs we’ll go with uses Quartz Pillars and Quartz Bricks. For this design, we’re going by a 6×6 design pattern, but players are always free to choose which ones they might need: 

  • The Quartz pillars are arranged in an odd-numbered pattern, starting from the top left corner and alternating between each brick. 
  • As for the quartz bricks, players can place them after every alternating brick where there is a quartz pillar has been placed. 

Gray Concrete

Now, for a rather unusual but unique design, players can go for the usual gray concrete idea, but to match up with the grey theme for this floor design, players can use a smithing table (yes, a smithing table) as a floor option too. 

  • Kicking things off, the gray concrete is to be placed the same way as the quartz pillars. 
  • In an alternating pattern, the smithing table can be placed where only the top part of the table can be seen. 


MC Blackstone

Now, a Blackstone design in Minecraft can not only look beautiful, but it can also look modern as hell. Players can lay it out in this design pattern with the gorgeous combo of polished and gilded Blackstone. Note that all default patterns are arranged in a 6×6 manner and can be switched. 

  • Starting with the Polished Blackstone, make a border all around in the 6×6 pattern. 
  • Line 12 gilded black stones in a square manner where there is a 2×2 space left for more polished Blackstone.

Rustic Designs 

Moving on, let’s discuss a few rustic Minecraft Floor Ideas that players can go for that mainly focus on different types of wood. 

Oak Planks

Kicking things off, we have a combination of dark oak planks as well as the use of a note block

  • Continuing with our 6×6 pattern, players want to repeat the pattern they saw in our first modern design. 
  • Lay down 18 dark oak planks and lay them down in such a way as though they alternate from the other blocks. 
  • Take 18 note blocks and alternate them from the dark oak planks.

Oak Log

Continuing with the oak theme, players can make a unique pattern by simply using one kind of block, such as the oak log

  • To make this a convincing pattern, players can place down alternating blocks, one of which ends up facing horizontally, and it should start from the top left. 
  • Players can then fill in the rest of the alternating space using vertical oak log placements to complete the design. 

Crafting Table

Ever thought of using a literal crafting table as a floor plan? Neither have we, but maybe it should be considered now, considering it can end up looking pretty neat. 

  • Choose 36 crafting tables if you’re going for the same 6×6 pattern, or you can increase the number as you, please. 
  • Place them down in such a way whereby the top of the crafting table is exposed, and it creates a gorgeous pattern. 

Logs Overload

Continuing with the rustic floor theme in Minecraft, players can continue using logs to make their homes feel cozy and rustic. By using a combination of three types of logs such as oak logs, dark oak logs, and spruce logs, players can lay them down like: 

  • Players can start by placing the dark oak log and placing it in a corner, then placing five after alternating it. 
  • Continue diagonally with the rest of the logs, making one line of each type of log before moving on to the next. 


Moving on, let’s discuss a few designs that are just filled with random items, such as barrels and miscellaneous items that players can use.


MC Barrel

While it seems shocking, players can still use items that are present around the inventory as floor designs too. In this example, players can make use of barrels, and they can place them down like this: 

  • Players want to place down the barrel in a way that is placed vertically first, and it is to be placed alternatingly. 
  • With that, place down the barrels in a horizontal pattern and alternate and fill the space between each block. 

Kelp Block

Yet another weird idea that some players might like is using kelp blocks, specifically dried kelp blocks. Not only can the green accent tie everything together, but if put together correctly, it can look really cute. 

  • Players want to use the dried kelp blocks with a lighter border going all around the block
  • Place them next to each other and fill the entire space with them. 

Lodestone And Smooth Stone 

As the name suggests, our next option for floor designs is using lodestone and smooth stone together. Like many of the designs mentioned before, these blocks will also use the alternating pattern. 

  • Take the lodestone and place it down, leaving space for every alternating block. 
  • Fill the rest of the space with smooth stone, which gives it a modern design. 

Ancient Debris

Yet another solid design option players can go for is using complete blocks of ancient debris. No other blocks are used for this design since the ancient debris itself can bring the best in this design. 

  • If you’re going for a 6×6 or an 8×8 pattern, choose the number of blocks needed as preferred. 
  • Lay them down, and all that players need to do is simply fill the entire space with the blocks. 


In the next batch, we will discuss concerns mostly old-age and medieval designs

Netherite And Furnace 

Since medieval designs are mostly focused on being old-school and have a lot of grey/black tones, players can make the perfect pairing of a block of netherite and, wait for it, a blast furnace. 

  • The top of the blast furnace provides the perfect texture of grey and can be placed alternatively in each space. 
  • The rest of the space can be filled with netherite blocks, which perfectly tie the entire design together

Planks And Stones

Why only stick with stones for a medieval theme when you can also pitch in woody aspects too. Mixing together a combination of spruce planks, stripped spruce wood, chiseled stone bricks, and stone brick can give an excellent mix of the two worlds colliding. 

  • Lay down the spruce planks and strip the spruce wood in a 1×2 pattern, one on top of the other. 
  • Lay down the stone bricks and chiseled stone bricks on top of the other like before, and alternate the two patterns until it is complete. 


MC Stone

Let’s discuss designs that features mostly stones, such as stone bricks, cobblestone, and chiseled stone bricks. They can be used together to make a pretty pattern and allow players to feel like they are living in the medieval ages. 

  • Align the chiseled stone bricks to make them cross in the middle, with the cobblestones going the other way diagonally. 
  • The stone bricks need to fill the entire space that is left out. 

Basalt And Andesite

If you would rather have a textured design that still sticks to the medieval theme, then players can look into pairing together both polished basalt as well as polished andesite, and following a 6×6 pattern, this is how players should lay it down: 

  • The player should place down the polished basalt blocks first, and then in an alternating pattern, the polished andesite should follow in and complete the space.
