Planning the windows for your building

In Minecraft, windows are more than just openings. They are transparent or colored glasses that allow you to observe the outside world from the comfort of your homes or buildings.

Although they can’t be opened, they offer a unique perspective that you won’t find anywhere else.

If you are using glass to make the windows in your building, be sure to place them where they are lightest . For example, if you place the window too low, it will be difficult for it to let in enough light. It’s not that it won’t receive light, but it won’t receive as much as if you placed it higher.

Large windows look very good , but they take some time to build. Of course, in the end, it’s worth every second invested.

Questions you should ask yourself before building a window

You can start by answering these questions:

  • How big do you want the window to be? Will it be a whole wall? Will it be narrow and tall, or wide and short?
    This question is extremely important because it not only helps you plan your construction but also calculate the amount of materials needed to complete your job.
  • Do you want the window to look like something, such as a tree or a specific shape?
    Know that colored or painted glass is the easiest way to create a specific design with this material.
  • Do you want the window to face a specific direction?
    For example, you may want to watch the sun rise, or perhaps set.
    Maybe there’s even a specific feature you want to see, like a farm or garden. If so, put that in the plan.

To add a window to your building, you will first need to make the glass, choose a suitable place (tear down a part of the wall) and finally place the glass on the wall.

Here’s how to do things step by step:

  • Estimate how many blocks or panes of glass you will need for your window.
  • Make the glass, whether in the form of blocks or panels. The latter are less thick than blocks and give an appearance more similar to that of a real window, although they are also more expensive to manufacture.
  • Take the glass to where you want the window and keep it in your inventory.
  • Break as many wall blocks as necessary to place your window (to break a block, click and hold on it until it breaks).
  • Place the glass in the hole in the wall, just as you would place any other object in the game (with the right mouse button).

Tips for making a glass window in Minecraft

You make a large window the same way you would a small one. The only difference is how many blocks you need to break in the wall to make room for the glass.
If you are creating a large window when building your structure, you will only need more glass blocks or panes than you need for smaller windows.
A good height to place a window is at your character’s eye level: 2 blocks high , in other words. Make your window at least 2 blocks wide so that enough light enters.
