Players can change their elevation without jumping by using stairs. They make it possible to move through areas where a player would normally need to use a ladder. In the game, there are 31 different types of stairs you can create, and they all follow a similar pattern for crafting.
To make a smooth transition, stairs can “merge” with other stairs going in the right direction. This might be advantageous for rendering a roof, floor pit, etc. Stairs naturally occur in villages and nether fortresses.

Steps To Make Minecraft Stairs
You must first open your crafting table in Minecraft in order to create stairs. You should see the same grid as in the below.
Add The Stair Ingredients To The Menu
In the crafting table, add the items to the grid.
The items must be added to the grid in the manner indicated below. In this example, we will craft oak wood stairs.
Place 1 oak wood block in the first box of the first row. Put one oak wood in the first box and one oak wood in the second box in the second row. Set three oak woods, one in each box, in the third row. This is the Minecraft stair recipe for oak stairs.
No matter the style of stairs you create, you will follow this pattern.
You’ll notice four oak stairs in the box to the right after adding the materials to the crafting grid as previously described.
Move The Stairs To Your Inventory
Finally, we’ll bring the stairs down to your inventory so you can use them.
Stairs are a building element in Minecraft that let users change elevation without having to jump. In actuality, walking up stairs takes less energy and is faster than jumping. You can create 31 different types of stairs in the game.
