One of the most comprehensive Minecraft furniture mods ever conceived, the MrCrayfish furniture mod is a fantastic choice for any gamer.

The mod adds over 80 different pieces of furniture to the game, and most of it is fully functional, including kitchen utensils, sleeping pieces, and even mailboxes. It also has support for modified wood types if they have been added to a player’s game.

There is simply too much included in the MrCrayfish furniture mod to list, so players will just have to dive into it. It’s really amazing how magnificently this mod can completely change the appeal of a base, a house or any construction in general.


2) Amenities

While decorating the inside of a base is one thing, Minecraft players sometimes need to spruce up the outside as well.

Comforts is a mod that adds sleeping bags and hammocks to the game, which are both decorative and useful while traveling. These sleeping blocks do not change the set spawn point and come in 16 different colors.

Comforts is an excellent mod for a budding camper or survivor. The addition of sleeping bags and hammocks can make a player-forged camp feel much cozier.


3) Decorative blocks

While Minecraft has plenty of decorative blocks on its own, the Decorative Blocks mod expands the list even further.

The mod adds approximately 14 new blocks to the game, often focusing on a medieval theme. However, blocks such as fire pits and wooden palisades can be used in many different constructions that have a more modern aesthetic.

Decorative Blocks also has compatibility with the Biomes O’ Plenty mod. This presents excellent opportunities to build within the various new biomes provided by Biomes O’ Plenty.


4) Paintings++

While Vanilla Minecraft certainly has a variety of paintings to decorate, Paintings++ enhances that collection and allows players to choose which paintings to place.

The range of paints is quite diverse, from styles with a hint of vanilla to those based on movies and video games.

The ability to select specific paints is also a big plus. Players often have to break and place items over and over again until they find a layout they like.

Paintings++ is both aesthetically pleasing and time saving.


5) Bonsai trees 3

Adding greenery like trees is a sure way to enhance the visual appeal of your builds in Minecraft.

Bonsai Trees 3 is a great way to add trees without taking up too much space. The mod allows players to create Bonsai planters, where they can plant miniature versions of any of the game’s trees, including Chorus Trees from the End or Crimson/Warped Mushrooms from the Nether.

Once the pot/pot has been placed, all players need to do is place some soil and then the sapling of their choice. They can even harvest the small trees if they wish.

Bonsai Planters can be upgraded to automatically harvest trees when they reach their maximum size.

This mod not only improves the appearance of a building, but also offers some additional materials.
