The sad fact about Minecraft multiplayer is that sooner or later you will be saddened. It doesn’t matter who you are or on which server you play, in the end it will happen. Fortunately, Minecraft is about creativity. There are plenty of ways to hide your most valuable items to prevent thieves and mourners from stealing them. We recommend creating a secret room or a completely secret base to hide your belongings.
Here’s a quick guide to some basic secret room ideas. All this can be enlarged and multiplied to hide several rooms or your entire base if you want.
Basic hidden painting door
This is probably the best known of all the ways to hide a room is to use a portrait. Minecraft has several images available. If you place several open fence gates in the wall, you can cover them with a picture. Then you can just walk into the room behind her.
2 x 2 Piston door
For this set, you only need six sticky pistons, two repeaters, a lever (or other way of turning it on) and six pieces of red stone.
This is a popular piston door design you’ve probably seen if you’re a fan of YouTubers like MumboJumbo and ilMango. Basically, you’re just running the Redstone line over two sets of pistons. The pistons at the rear of the machine pull the blocks off the wall and the pistons to the side move them out of the way so you can pass them. Then you can reactivate the door and everything will return to everything as it was.
In our example, we use a comparator connected to the item frame to control the door. You can also use a lever, a button or any other idea that comes to mind to activate the door. Just make sure your repeaters point in the opposite direction and are set to three ticks, otherwise the machine will fail and you will eventually move your blocks somewhere else.
1 x 1 door
This is a fairly simple variant of entering the picture frame from the previous ones, which is not so obvious. It works especially well if your base is against a hill or inside a cave where you can excavate an area behind it.
Place the picture on at least one fence gate in the wall and then surround it with a trapdoor above and below it. You can fold down the bottom hatch and jump on them, then go against the wall and lower the top hatch to force yourself to crawl.
Just crawl through the painting and get to your room on the other side. Don’t forget to turn around and flip the trapdoor back so no one will notice.
This is one of the funniest secret rooms you can have. It’s also a good way to flood a room if you’re not careful. To build the entrance to this bunker, you will need to empty a small area of water, so before you start, grab a few piles of sand or gravel. You will also need to find a lake or other body of water that is at least three blocks deep to build an entrance.
After you select an area for your entrance, you will need to drain it before you can begin construction. Once the area is depleted, you can start building your entrance and your bunker. At the entrance you will need a sticky plunger, a Redstone repeater, a Redstone dust, a Redstone flashlight and several ladders.
At the redstone part of the bunker, you can follow the entrance above as a reference. Just make sure the redstone repeater is set to two ticks. Place the block in front of the piston that coincides with the area around it to cover the entrance. When you place the Redstone torch on the entrance block, it will open.
Dig a few blocks below the block you placed to cover the entrance. Place ladders on the side of the dug hole to prevent the new bunker from being flooded with water. Be sure not to place the ladder on top of the inlet block as it will prevent you from activating the piston.
Once the entrance is complete, refill the space with water and remove any retaining wall you are using. This is also the best time to do a little detail around to keep the entrance inside. Some sand, dirt and a little bone meal will be a long way.
Once your entrance is covered again, you can get in and out by placing the Redstone torch on top of the block you are using to cover it, or by placing or breaking the Redstone torch below it inside the bunker. Using this method, you can create a small secret safe or a massive underground / underwater base.
Hidden bunker for mining trucks
This assembly is almost as quick and easy as your standard picture door. You can also place them inside your home and hide them in a common table or shelf decoration. For this construction you will need a staircase block, four or five sliding doors, a mine cart and railings.
Go ahead and build your home as you normally would, and create a small shelf that will hold some decorations. You can put anything you like on the shelf and make it from everything you like, just make sure you have at least one stair block and cover the shelf with a trapdoor.
Place the stair block upside down, then attach the trapdoor to it to turn up and force you to crawl while you are next to them.
Once your trapdoor is in place, it’s time to start digging. Make a hole under the stair block and then dig a nice bunker to store your valuables. You can enlarge it as you like, just make sure it is at least three blocks high. If you are crawling, you must be able to see into the bunker around the stairs.
To complete the bunker, place a small platform under and slightly in front of the hole you made under the shelf. Place the railing on the platform, then place the cart on the mines, and then use the hatches to hold the cart in place.
To enter the new bunker, go upstairs to the staircase block and use the trapdoor to crawl. Scroll as far forward as possible to see the cart and right-click on it. Once you’re in the basket, you can just turn around and close the trapdoor behind you. After pressing the left shift, you will jump to the platform and you can start working in your new bunker. You can get out of the bunker by creating a piston door, a water lift or any other exit you would like.
