I've finally found me a place to settle, and my two double chests are becoming crowded. I've organized them as well as I can, but I think it's time to start making a storage room.

Now, I don't want it to be automated. I'm an idiot when it comes to even basic redstone (I can make a semi-auto melon farm, and that is about it). I just want a visually pleasing storage room.

Ideas are extremely appreciated. :)

Stack them! That always looks cool! And I'm pretty sure that the chest on the bottom will still be able to be opened.

Hmm, that means I'd have to make the ceiling a halfslab in order to open the top chest, but those are cheap. I really like that idea.

Do what i did.
Make a new building only for bulk items (cobble, dirt, gravel) where you just stack chests on top of each other and fill them, you can use all the space fully when 1.5 comes out with trapped chests (dont attach to other chests)

Some great idea's in this thread:

http://www.minecraft...r-storage-room/

The storage system used by Scum is particularly good IMO and I'm going to steal it.

My current storage system consists of double-chests stacked 3 high with Item Frames to show what is in each chest.

That's not a bad idea. It would clean up the setup I currently have in place. Thanks. :)

Ooo! Thank you! Most of the ideas I've saw in those two topics I love. :)

I think perhaps an underground storage base is at needing hands

you can also use stairs, which i prefer to use because they still look like solid blocks stack them like this

I would suggest using hoppers to at least funnel items into a collective area.  No redstone needed at all.

I made a visually pleasing fountain in the middle of my first floor of my base, with 2 chests in the middle, i simply drop the items in, and the hoppers funnel them to the b1 storage room for later sorting.

I do the same for bulk items like cobble, on b1 they are funneled down until they reach the bottem of a long line of chest(like, 6 chests)

Using this is very simple, hopper ontop a chest, which is on top of a hopper, and saves space by just throwing them to the bottem of the chest piles for you!

Ill post pics when i get out of class, but other ideas include the chests next to trapped chests, as they both work the same and can be next to eachother, it saves a ton of space.

Edit-Rather than placing my pictures here where they might clog up things, Im placing them in the storage pictures thread and will link the post here when I am done.

does noone else have ocd like me? I have to have the chest able to open up fully without the lid going through a block above it. :P

Hey ;) I have designed a new automated storage system which holds all items in only a few chests.. Maybe you could tell me your opinion if it has some potential ;) https://www.youtube....h?v=HyYrBPq5Ao4

Do what I did, Make a 7 by 6 block hole, and destroy some blocks where the chests will be, then above them put slabs so the chests can open. Remember to put some ladders so you can get in and out. Also put torches anywhere possible.Posted Image

Since I am very picky about my storage I copied VintageBeefs chest room from his MindCrack LP. I also recommend Etho's design from his LP

I usually put my storage area in the basement, just a bunch of double chest stacked against the walls and labeled. Very efficient method actually.
