Stairs are blocks that allow mobs and players to change elevation without jumping.

Obtaining[edit]

Breaking[edit]

Wood stairs drop themselves as items when broken with any tool, or with no tool, but an axe is fastest. Non-wood stairs drop themselves as items only if broken with a pickaxe.

Crafting[edit]

Wood stairs must be crafted entirely from one type and color of wood, and they retain the style of that wood's type and color.

Usage[edit]

Placement[edit]

Stairs ReconfigurationLeft: Original facing when separate. Right: Changed shape when adjacent (top: inner corner; bottom: outer corner).

To place stairs, use a stairs item while pointing at a surface facing the space the stairs should occupy. When placed, a stair orients itself with the half-block side closest to the player.

Stairs can be placed either right side up or upside-down:

  • Pointing at a block top or the bottom half of a block side places the stairs right side up.
  • Pointing at a block bottom or the top half of a block side places the stairs upside-down.

Stairs change their shape to join with adjacent stairs (of any material):

  • When a stairs' half-block side is adjacent to the side of another stairs, the stairs' full-block side wraps into an "L" shape to join the other stairs (it creates an "inner corner").
  • When a stairs' full-block side is adjacent to the side of another stairs, the stairs' full-block side shortens to join the other stairs' full-block side (it creates an "outer corner").

Right side up stairs do not join with upside-down stairs and vice versa.

Walking[edit]

Walking up stairs is faster than jumping up the same distance. It also costs 0.01 exhaustion from the player's hunger bar per horizontal meter walked on a stairway, versus 0.2 exhaustion per jump.

Behavior[edit]

Generally, the solid faces of stairs are handled as solid blocks. Due to this, transparent blocks that need to placed on an opaque surface can be placed on these faces.

Fuel[edit]

Wooden stairs can be used as a fuel in furnaces, smelting 1.5 items per block.

History[edit]

Iron Pickaxe JE3 BE2.png
This section is a work in progress.
Please help by contributing to the completion of this section.
This section is missing information about MCPE-20677, and that one time console edition had cut sandstone stairs due to a bug.
Please expand the section to include this information. Further details may exist on the talk page.
Java Edition Infdev
20100629Oak Stairs (N) JE1 BE1.png Cobblestone Stairs (N) JE1 BE1.png Added oak wood stairs and "stone" stairs.
Wooden stairs currently do not burn.
Oak Planks (texture) JE3 BE1.png Cobblestone (texture) JE3 BE1.png Both icon textures for stairs in the inventory are simply flat planks and cobblestone textures.
Java Edition Alpha
v1.0.1Oak Stairs (item) JE2.png Cobblestone Stairs (item) JE2.png Stair inventory textures have been changed to a solid two step texture, which are currently glitched.
v1.2.0?Before this version, stairs would determine their orientation based on the surrounding blocks (changing if they were changed). They now attempt to face a block adjacent to the stairs, so as to create a climbable surface toward that block.
v1.2.2Stairs now have the odd property of being transparent to light; when placed one or more spaces above the ground with air beneath, sunlight or other light sources now shine through and light the blocks beneath or behind the stairs exactly as if nothing opaque are present between them.
Other atmospheric effects such as snowfall do not penetrate stair blocks, making them an unusually effective material for creating roofing that kept weather out, but still let daylight in.
Snow cannot accumulate on top of stair blocks, grass is able to grow on the block directly underneath a stair block, and grass disappears if a stair block was placed on top of it. Any stair block placed in Alpha v1.2.0_02 to Beta 1.5 would keep this property in later versions until it or an adjacent block is changed or removed, causing a lighting update.
Java Edition Beta
1.0Items have been given in-game names. The two types of stairs have been named "Wooden Stairs" and "Stone Stairs", respectively.
1.6Test Build 3Wooden stairs and fences are now flammable.
The light transparency of stairs from Alpha v1.2.2 has been fixed.
Oak Stairs (item) JE3.png Cobblestone Stairs (item) JE3.png The inventory icon for stairs has been reversed to show a more recognizable figure.
1.7Oak Stairs (N) JE2.png Cobblestone Stairs (N) JE2 BE3.png The models of stairs have been changed. The texture of stone stairs has been changed due to the cobblestone texture change.
1.8Pre-releaseBrick Stairs (N) JE1.png Stone Brick Stairs (N) JE1.png Added brick and stone brick stairs.
Stone brick stairs drop stone bricks, brick stairs drop bricks.
Brick Stairs (N) lighting bug.png Stone Brick Stairs (N) lighting bug.png On some GPUs, a major lighting bug is present which causes the insides of stairs blocks to appear completely black.
Java Edition
1.0.0Beta 1.9 PrereleaseNether Brick Stairs (N) JE1.png Added nether brick stairs.
Nether Brick Stairs (N) lighting bug.png They can appear similarly black.
Beta 1.9 Prerelease 5Brick, nether brick and stone brick stairs no longer appear black on the inside.

Before they were added, edited data values of 4 through 15 would create invisible stairs that could be walked through; these higher values are now used for upside-down stairs.
Oak Stairs (N) JE4 BE4.png Cobblestone Stairs (N) JE3 BE4.png Brick Stairs (N) JE3.png Nether Brick Stairs (N) JE2.png Stone Brick Stairs (N) JE2.png The models of stairs have been changed.

12w26aAdded crafting recipes for birch, spruce and jungle wood stairs.
12w30aUpside down stairs can now be placed by generally looking at the top half of the side of a block, rather than strictly the underside of a block.
1.4.212w34aStairs now automatically change shape into corner stairs depending on location.
12w39aStairs now interact properly with lighting.
Smooth lighting on stairs is now currently slightly bugged.

Stairs are now rotated 90° in the inventory.
15w43aSpruce wood stairs acting as corners of a table now generate within igloo basements.
15w44bDue to model changes, stairs now display incorrectly stretched or squashed textures.[2] These may be GPU dependent as only corner stairs are distorted on some computers.
15w45aStair textures are no longer incorrectly stretched. However they are now incorrectly mapped.[3]
15w46aStair texture mapping has now been corrected. It is not known, however, if stairs from this version onwards look at all different from those before 15w44b.
