Minecraft’s Nether dimension is a dangerous place, but that doesn’t mean players can’t make it engaging.
Players can create magnificent buildings even within the fiery depths of the Nether, and many have built some truly impressive structures.
Below, Minecraft players can find some incredibly cool builds that make the Nether a much nicer place, at least aesthetically.

Lava Nether Base, Cacus’ Revenge, and 3 other awesome building ideas Minecraft players can use in the Nether
1) Lower Mansion
Making the Nether a permanent place to live is a bit strange, but some players will gladly rise to the challenge.
During a Nether building challenge, a player named Elicorne decided to make a home mansion within the fiery dimension. While the mansion is cozy and provides many amenities for crafting and resource processing, it does have a creepy appearance due to the abundance of Nether blocks used.
This mansion is beautiful to behold despite being a bit creepy. It provides plenty of shelter from the dimension’s hostile mobs and dangerous traps.
2) Abyssal lava base
If there’s one thing that has Minecraft’s Nether dimension, it’s lava. Huge seas of lava stretch as far as the eye can see, and one misstep can cause a player to fall right into it.
However, daring creators like TheMythicalSausage have taken on these dangerous lava seas as a challenge. This particular build is made up of heat-resistant Nether materials, such as warped and crimson Nether bricks. It drills deep into the core of the dimension to create a living space for its builder.
Players may have to take a strider to get through the lava to reach this base, but there’s no question that it’s both incredibly attractive and just as functional.
3) Hanging bottom base
While the Nether doesn’t have much floor space due to the presence of the lava sea, it does have a considerable amount of blocks relative to the ceiling.
Minecraft content creator GeminiTay took this fact into account and created a beautiful hanging base. Using a system of bridges, the suspended semi-open rooms are interconnected, with each room suspended from the top of the Nether itself.
The bridges can be a bit precarious, with views of the sea of lava and abyssal debris. However, they provide beautiful views as they move from room to room.
4) Lower Needle
The hellish appearance of the Nether lends itself to creative builders looking to make projects more sinister and insidious. A perfect example is this build from Redditor Shannooty, who built a massive spire surrounded by lava. The needle hits an evil-looking magic ring suspended in the air.
This build fits perfectly into the evil lore of the Nether. If a player were to come across this creation while adventuring through the Nether, they might think twice about approaching it.
Is he initiating some evil ritual? Is it a forgotten monument built by the inhabitants of the dimension? The only sure thing is that this vicious needle will strike fear into those who find it.
5) Caco’s Revenge
Every once in a while, a Minecraft builder creates something truly impressive. Cacus’ Revenge is one such creation, and it took first place in Planet Minecraft’s Nether Build contest. The build was so impressive that Mojang even showed it off on the game’s official site.
According to Aderlyon, the team that created the construct, Cacus’ Revenge was conceptualized as the first Nether portal to ever exist.
Needless to say, this build holds up incredibly well, encompassing a large chunk of the Nether itself.
The staggering number of blocks and unfathomable amount of detail in this build make it a contender for one of the best Nether builds ever built.
