An Introduction to Minecraft
If you’re wondering what Minecraft is and why your kids are constantly talking about it, we’re here to help.
It’s a ‘sandbox game’, meaning you create your own experience in a virtual landscape. The main aim is to dig holes and place blocks – but it’s what you do with them that is where it gets interesting.
You can build anything from a shack to a castle, and the different in-game modes can change what your aim is. Creative mode means you have the freedom to build, whereas Survival mode you have to build weapons to beat off the ‘Creepers’ of the game (the baddies) and protect your space.
Minecraft was created by Markus Persson in 2009; an independent self-taught designer. It has very basic graphics but it’s creative freedom is the beauty of the game. The creativity and unique experience is built upon what you decide to do with the game and its components.
The game helps build 21st century skills such as creativity, innovation, and collaboration.
How To Create A Minecraft Interior
Is your little one as mad on Minecraft as every other child seems to be? If it has taken over your kids’ lives and they spend an endless amount of time playing the game. Why not create a Minecraft kid’s bedroom by turning their playroom into a pixelated fortress!
This is our guide on creating the perfect Minecraft kid’s bedroom.
Before you go online and buy every Minecraft bed set, night light and other bedroom related decor items. It is important to realise that your kids taste is likely to change faster than you can imagine. By sticking with a colour theme, you can get the “Minecraft look” without overspending and having room to adapt it. The colour palettes are easy to follow to go with the easy and basic graphics of the game. To subtly create the look, focus on using shades of green, brown, and beige to perfect a Minecraft kid’s bedroom.
However, there are other options you can go into with colour palettes to make that Minecraft look. We’ve got a few options below that you can try instead. Just stick with the three colour rule – simple is the rule of thumb.
Minecraft Colour Scheme
When it comes to decorating your Minecraft kid’s bedroom, you can opt for subtle colour palettes that complement each other. Build a Minecraft kid’s room that has a soft and versatile palette – this way it can be adapted easily down the line without a complete redecoration.
For suggested complementary neutrals, we suggest using two out of the three theme colours as your paint colours. You can then build on a different colour as accents and accessories in the room – either a contrasting or complementary colour. If you’ve opted for greens, then brown accessories will help bring that Minecraft feel.
You can find neutral paint colours from Farrow & Ball here. Here are some options:
Some ways to accessorise with these complementary colours is with something like this Minecraft light-up torch, which mounts on the wall and is guaranteed to keep zombies away! Or for something more permanent, this pixelated green lamp shade will illuminate your child’s bedroom perfectly and help their creativity and love for Minecraft flow into their dreams.
If there ever was a clock in for Minecraft gamers, it would look like this. This clock has pixelated corners and manages to look almost like a rudimentary drawing of a clock on Word Paint. Little stubby sweep minute and hour hands mark the passage of time, even if the realm of Minecraft makes your child think time has stopped.
Having a themed bedroom is a dream of every gamer. As the personal space, a gamers interests and passion can grow, having a Minecraft kid’s bedroom only aid this love of the creative game. To help immerse your child’s room in Minecraft accessories, add in these pixelated pillow covers, available on RedBubble here and here.
