Minecraft Lamp Post Design Ideas

Some lamp post design ideas could be wide or higher than your base’s roof, so it’s recommended to check your available spacing before collecting the materials.

Without further ado, let’s see the design list!

1. Lamp Post with Grindstones

Materials: 2 Cobblestone Walls, 2 Spruce Fences, 2 Spruce Trapdoors, 1 Cobblestone Slab, 2 Grindstones, and 2 Lanterns.

The first lamp post design on the list is simple yet attractive.

All you need to do is to chop down some trees and mine some cobblestones. That’s it!

The grindstones can be crafted with 2 wooden planks, 2 sticks, and 1 stone slab. So, make sure to prepare a crafting table and a furnace for this design.

2. One-side Lamp Post

Materials: 1 Chisel Stone Brick, 4 Stone Buttons, 2 Stone Brick Walls, 1 Spruce Fence, 1 Spruce Fence Gate, 1 Spruce Stair, 1 Spruce Slab, 2 Spruce Trapdoors, 1 Chain, and 1 Lantern.

If you’re a fan of spruce and stone bricks, let’s try this lamp post design!

It’s best to use this design when you don’t have a large space to work with, especially in the dark mineshaft deep underground.

3. Crimson Lamp Post

Materials: 1 Crying Obsidian, 4 Nether Brick Stairs, 1 Nether Brick, 6 Nether Brick Walls, 1 Red Nether Brick Wall, 2 Red Nether Brick Stairs, 1 Wither Skeleton Skull, 2 Blocks of Netherite, 4 Crimson Vines, 2 Magma Blocks, 6 Crimson Signs, and 2 Crimson Trapdoors.

Ever want to show off your netherite in a subtle way? We’ve got you covered!

The design fit really well with the Nether environment while still providing a soft light to the area.

And since you’re in the Nether, you could gather some Blackstones and use them as a replacement for the netherite blocks. Alternatively, gold blocks are a solid option too!

4. Weighted Lamp Post

Materials: 1 Smoker, 4 Spruce Buttons, 2 Cobblestone Walls, 2 Spruce Fences, 1 Spruce Slab, 2 Spruce Trapdoors, 2 Hoppers, 1 Anvil, 2 Chains, and 2 Lanterns.

Here’s another lamp post design for your Nether base!

By using mostly warped wood and Blackstones, it’s really easy to replica this idea since you can get those resources in the Nether dimension itself.

If you don’t have any spare beacons left, replace the center block with another sea lantern.

6. Reinforced Lamp Post

Materials: 1 Polished Blackstone Brick, 1 Anvil, 1 Nether Brick Wall, 3 Nether Brick Slabs, 2 Grindstones, 1 Chiseled Stone Brick, 1 Bell, and 2 Lanterns.

If you love the first and fourth lamp post designs, here’s another variation!

With a smaller size and height, you could fit this design anywhere you like.

You can find a bell in any type of village structure. Each village can have up to 3 bells generated in a random location. Or you can trade 36 emeralds with the armorer villagers for a bell.

7. Chinese Lamp Post #1

8. Chinese Lamp Post #2

10. Double Lamp Post

Materials: 1 Stone Brick Wall, 8 Spruce Fences, 4 Spruce Trapdoors, 1 Spruce Stair, 2 Spruce Signs, 2 Lanterns, and a Flower Pot.

If you’ve played enough RPG games, you should be familiar with those direction lamp posts.

With some wood and a few stone bricks, you could rebuild this idea in a minute or two.

In fact, many Minecraft servers use this design in their spawn area because it’s easy to build and has multiple functionalities.

11. Desert Lamp Post

Materials: 1 Sandstone, 6 Birch Trapdoors, 2 Sandstone Walls, 4 Birch Fences, 1 Birch Wood, 1 Smooth Sandstone Slab, and 2 Lanterns.

Birch wood and sandstone are a perfect combination for a lamp post, especially if you’re living in the desert biome.

12. Scarecrow Lamp Post

Materials: 1 Chiseled Stone Brick, 2 Stone Brick Walls, 6 Spruce Fences, 4 Spruce Trapdoors, 1 Spruce Slab, 2 Flower Pots with Dead Bushes, 2 Lanterns, and 2 Levers.

13. Statue with Lamp Post

Materials: Stone Bricks, Stone Brick Stairs, Polished Andesites, Stones, Chiseled Stone Bricks, 8 Dark Oak Fences, 8 Primarine Walls, and 1 Ochre Froglight.

This design is weird and cool at the same time.

Just imagine walking into an ocean monument with a long hallway, and you see several statues holding a lamp post like this. Isn’t it wonderful?

Alternatively, you can choose to only build the lamp trident if you want.

14. Acacia Lamp Post

Materials: 2 Stripped Oak Logs, 8 Spruce Trapdoors, 4 Spruce Buttons, 3 Cobblestone Walls, 3 Acacia Fences, 2 Acacia Fence Gates, 2 Chains, 2 Lanterns, 1 Spruce Fence, and a Rose Bush.

By using different block types such as walls, fences, and fence gates, you can create a unique lamp post with different heights and depths, which is really satisfying to the eyes.

15. Simplistic Lamp Post

Materials: 2 Lodestone, 2 Andesite Walls, 2 Spruce Fences, 1 Spruce Slab, 4 Oak Trapdoors, 1 Redstone Lamp, 2 Levers, 2 Chains, and 2 Lanterns.

The main feature of this design is the connection between the lever and the chain. Also, it only requires 3 blocks wide to build a single lamp post, which is sufficient for small areas.

It’s also best to use this design in any mountain builds, especially for dwarf’s fortress and pathway.

16. Medieval Lamp Post

By adding a small sitting area underneath the lamp post, you can have a quick rest and take a snack here after a long journey.

Remember to add the daylight sensor on top so the lamp post can automatically turn on at night. Additionally, using a lead to add a small detail to the pole can create a huge difference.
