Kitchens in Minecraft are a fun way to store your food and cooking supplies in the game. Since you don’t need to sit at a table to eat or use fancy appliances like stoves or microwaves to cook, Minecraft kitchens are mostly just for decoration!
With the use of mods, Minecraft kitchens can get a whole lot more interesting. For example, there’s a mod that adds fridges, stoves, and cabinets to Minecraft. Whether or not you use mods is a personal choice and is totally up to you!
Here are my favorite Minecraft kitchen ideas and designs and hopefully you can find some inspiration for building your own! Our top picks include kitchens that are possible to build without any mods.
In this photo, a reddit user made a small and cozy Minecraft kitchen that has a splash of modern building style. There’s a split level, barstools, a dining island, countertops, and an open area with bamboo plants.
I think this design is a little small, but would still work great in an underground Minecraft base or a taller house. The lamps could be from a mod, but in any case they could easily be replaced with lanterns for a similar look.
A very modern take on a kitchen in Minecraft is shown here. The decorative fire on the side, vents above the island, and the fridge made from ice are some pretty cool things to build in Minecraft.
This kitchen has an open window leading to the outdoors, which makes it perfect for building a main-level kitchen inside your Minecraft house.
3. Corner Kitchen
I feel cold just looking at this kitchen and it was probably built in a colder Minecraft biome! It is a great example of what is possible without using mods when building a kitchen in your Minecraft world.
Using upside-down pistons as vents is a really creative way to decorate the kitchen. Some other items used for decoration are the frames as cutting boards and a normal door as a fridge.
This kitchen may have been built underground, but a good addition would be to add some windows if possible.
4. Basic Survival Kitchen
This is a really simple kitchen design that you can build in any Minecraft survival game. It is made from basic materials like sandstone and cobblestone with a checkered wool floor.
Despite being small, it’s still practical and has some storage chests to put your food!
5. Another Modern Design
I just love this cool kitchen idea for Minecraft! This build makes great use of birch trapdoors as cabinets, a brewing stand as an appliance, and potted plants for the counter. The lanterns make great hanging lighting and there’s a window with a tree.
This kitchen does have a step by step guide for building it in Minecraft.
A cool, compact kitchen idea that’s built in a medieval style. Note the wooden door used to make the pantry, a really cool idea would be to make a food storage room or walk-in pantry beyond this door.
If you have a bigger space to work with, this more spacious kitchen idea in Minecraft may be a good fit. A cool way to simulate cabinets without mods is to use buttons.
