Before starting to talk to you about how to take a shower in Minecraft, it seems right to explain to you what are the materials that you will need to use for the realization of this project.
First, you will need blocks of any material: you can choose stone ones, colored concrete ones or any other material that will satisfy your interest. Since a block will serve as an opening and closing valve for the shower, I advise against using obsidian.
In addition, you will need the Redstone, which is essential to be able to create a circuit for opening and closing the flow of water. You can find the Redstone in the blocks scattered underground in the Minecraft world.
To this circuit, you will need to associate a sticky piston, which will act as an essential component for the shower water flow valve. To make a sticky plunger, you’ll first need to make a regular one in a workbench, using 3 wooden planks, 4 crushed stone blocks, 1 unit of Redstone, and 1 iron ingot. You will then need to add 1 unit of slime ball to the piston, obtainable from the Slime creatures.
Finally, you will need a lever, obtainable by joining 1 stick and 1 unit of crushed stone, and some glass panels, which I told you about in this guide of mine. Don’t forget also a bucket, which you can get through 3 iron ingots, to be filled with water from any source.
Take a shower on Minecraft
Now that you are aware of all the materials needed to build a shower in Minecraft, it’s time to roll up your sleeves and start seeing all the steps necessary for the realization of this project.
First, mark off an area of your shelter room that is 6 × 4 in size. For the choice of the area, prefer the corner of the room, which I will use as an example in this guide. Then place the blocks you have chosen to create the flooring for the shower.
Once this is done, place two lines of 6 blocks each on this base, running the length of the wall. Do the same thing on the other side of the corner, placing three lines of 3 blocks each on the base.
Now, on the long line of the blocks you placed, add 5 units of Redstone on top and then place 2 more blocks on the short side, perpendicular to the wall. On these two blocks, you need to place 2 more units of Redstone.
Once this is done, leaving the space of one block from the corner and base, create a line of 3 blocks on the long wall. On the latter, place 2 units of Redstone and the sticky piston horizontally, on the platform of which you will need to add 1 block (not obsidian), which will act as a valve.
Well: we’re almost there! Use the blocks in your possession to create the shower walls, which will isolate the newly built mechanism. All you have to do now is create the water tank, which will start flowing as soon as you open the valve.
Starting from the height of the sticky piston, create a 3 × 2 base, taking care not to place the block next to the one attached to the piston.
Once this is done, place the blocks along the entire surface of the shower, so as to close it completely at the top. Then add a lever to the center of the 3 × 3 shower wall and interact with it to activate the piston, which will close the tank valve.
Now that the valve is closed, use the bucket to pour the water into the tank.
Great: you just finished the shower project!
You just have to decorate it using glass panels and remove the block on the base at the valve, so as not to allow water to escape from the shower.
By interacting with the lever, the valve will operate and will open or close the water flow. Convenient, right?
Mod to take a shower on Minecraft
If your intent is to take a shower on Minecraft in a few simple steps, I can recommend the use of mods. Among the thousands of mods available, I recommend using MrCrayfish’s Furniture Mod, which allows you to add any decorative element to your shelter, including a working shower.
If you want to use this mod on Minecraft, you must first install Minecraft Forge, a free download program from this website. After reaching the link I gave you, go to the left section and click on the version of Minecraft Forge compatible with the mod and press the Windows Installer button, to start the download. Next, double click on the downloaded file and press OK in the box that is shown to you, to install Minecraft Forge.
At this point, take the MrCrayfish’s Furniture Mod from the CurseForge database, reaching the Minecraft section, via the link I provided. In the MrCrayfish’s Furniture mod tab, click the Download latest file button, to download the file in JAR format.
The latter, at the end of the download, must be moved to the mod folder found in C: \ Users [name] \ AppData \ Roaming.Minecraft. Can’t find it? Don’t worry: create it manually within the path in question.
Very well! We’re almost there: now, start Minecraft and click on the ▲ icon next to the Play button. Once this is done, choose the Forge profile and press the Play button to start the game with mod support.
Once this is done, to use the mod you installed and create a shower in your shelter, if you are in the Creative mode, open the inventory and go to the MrCrayfish’s Furniture Mod tab. Therefore, identify the Shower and Shower Head objects and equip them, to immediately place them in your shelter.
If you are in a Survival mode session, however, you can create the Shower object with 6 quartz blocks and 3 glass blocks, in a workbench. As for the Shower Head, it uses 3 iron ingots and 3 stone blocks.
To make the shower work, all you have to do is enter the shower cubicle ( Shower ) and interact on the showerhead ( Shower Head ) to activate it. Easy, right?

In addition to the advice I gave you in the previous chapters, if you want to know other methods to take a shower on Minecraft, I suggest you use the famous video sharing platform YouTube, where you can find lots of videos made by many Minecraft fans, like you.
