No one wants to have a bland natural area with nothing to really see, so water fountains are a great addition to make to your base. Here are some interesting water fountain designs to consider using in Minecraft.

Great Minecraft Fountain design ideas and concepts

Axolotls have been a favorite inclusion to Minecraft since their addition. Take some colored blocks and craft yourself a fountain tribute to the aquatic creatures.

Creepers are the main mascot of Minecraft, so you can pay tribute to them by building a fountain dedicated to their explosive personality.

Floating fountain

Not every water fountain in Minecraft needs to be fully connected. If you set up a floating fountain, you can have a structure that would fit perfectly in a fantasy setting.

Who says that fountains have to spout out water? Replace your blocks with Nether items, and you can create your own safety hazard wherever you want.

Quartz is not necessarily the most popular block for building, but it can give your water fountain a very clean look.

Simple fountains

Not everything you build in Minecraft needs to be overly complex to look good. These fountains made by BlueNerd on YouTube are not overly complicated but would look great in about any setting.

Small fountain

Not all water fountains need to be standing out in the open to be good-looking. These small fountains could easily fit into the wall of a building either inside or outside.

Snowball fountain

While you can’t really send water spouting into the air like in real life, you can substitute it with Snowballs. Place a set of Dispensers pointed up in the water and set up a system with Redstone to make a Snowball fountain. The only problem with this is you will need to refill the Dispensers regularly, but this is about as unique of a fountain that you will come across.

Spiral fountain

Making circular motions in Minecraft is not necessarily easy because everything is made with blocks. If you know how to do it, though, you can make some very interesting fountains by setting up your water to fall down in a spiral formation.

Wooden Fountain

While you may first think of stone structures when you think of water fountains, this wooden fountain changes things up. The leaf blocks also give it a nice natural feel.
