I have recently dug out several rooms into the side of a ravine next to my base and now I'm trying to design them. However I'm not very good at finding block types that complement each other. Can you give me suggestions for what go together well? Also could you suggest various patterns? So far I have a sandstone/log/plank room as well as a Nether-themed room. If you'd like to know what I'm doing, I've been writing about it here. Thanks!
Hello, and again, welcome to the Aperture Science Enrichment Center. We are currently experiencing technical difficulties due to circumstances of potentially apocalyptic significance, beyond our control.
Stone slabs, Stone and wooden planks go PERFECT together. trust me on that. Try to make the room like this:
Roof and floor and roof of stone or stone bricks, then the wall of wood. then you replace the top row of the wall ( I have rooms thats 3 blocks tall, and the uppermost row is not planks ) To Stone slabs. Looks incredibly good.
Some other designs : Sandstone + Nether Brick
Cobble stone + Netherack (In texture packs, only some of them)
Double half stone slab with anything
Stone brick and sandstone
Wool on floor and wood as wall
Stone cobble stone-brick
Wool and pine logs
Sandstone and red or blue wool
Sandstone and nethereack
Logs and wood
Cobble and stone bricks
Wool, pine logs and bricks.
Bricks and cobble.
Snow and iron blocks.
Stone and iron blocks.
I like lapis and gold blocks-- It has an ancient Egyptian feel. But it is kind of expensive. Glowstone goes pretty well with cobblestone or obsidian.
I don't know anything cheap that looks good though. It is either planks and cobblestone or a room fit for a king: no half way for me.
Sanstone with dirt blocks with grass on top for the floor is my favorite if you can get some emerald blocks I think it looks awesome with obsidian. If your looking to go cheapy on the rooms I would suggest stone brick and the white wooden planks I always liked them with some redstone lamps for lighting
