    I’ve been waiting since concrete came out for stairs ... And now you mention it, terracotta as well ...

    It annoys me that even with this new nether update, the new blocks are getting stair variants (ie. Blackstone) and some of the most used blocks have still been left behind ...

    We only have to see such content as Hermitcraft where half of the hermits are hampered by the inability to use stairs and yet build with concrete almost exclusively ...

    I personally have a lot of my current survival builds, built with stairs in mind (ie. Built one block backward so as to place them in the future)

    I have been wanting and wishing for this for a long time. It would help with creations and make them even better.

    Also for stone we have the square which is 4 quarters (whole block), 3 quarters (stair), 2 quarters (slab) and are missing one quarter, this would be useful to add as cornice in builds and as posts etc, imagine a colored concrete wall, white ceiling and then able to add the white for cornices. Also could use as posts for a patio (different to the fence as they automatically join to things and are centered, these shouldnt join and be in one of the quarters.

    Please add this! Concrete is one of the greatest decoration blocks in the game, but you can't do anything house-related without stairs and slabs! Great idea! Upvoted! :)

    Biggest help would be the concrete slabs. They’re a solid color and texture so there isn’t as many challenges graphically or coding wise as it would be for the glazed terra-cotta. All the choices in colored concrete really expands the options for building creativity, especially for modern builds, thematic builds, and replicas.

    This is an absolute must. Ive been playing Minecraft since beta, and nowadays i only play creative. Having slabs, stairs, and walls for each color of concrete, and i guess terracotta would exponentially expand creative possibilities without the need for a texture pack. Im a diehard Minecraft fan, always will be. It brings out my creativity, and inner-architect. I support all Mojang does, but the absence of these, essential building blocks, is frustrating and limits builds. Often forcing players to go beyond the game, and seek what they need from a texture pack or mod. Mojang has added tons of amazing and very useful blocks/items over the years. But adding concrete blocks without slabs, stairs and even walls, has been the biggest tease since the announcement of creative mode all those years ago. Ive been waiting for these blocks, and so have tons of other players. Please upvote this thread, we builders need those colorful slabs, stairs, and walls!! (Honstly i can live without the walls lol) Lets get Mojang to hear us so we can expand our building oppurtunities beyond anything we've imagined before!

    I agree, ever since they removed the block limit, whats in the way of these block variants?

    I don't understand how this (as well as diorite, granite, andesite, smooth stone, etc) is not already a thing. Part of the idea of this game (and a BIG idea) is building and yet we're limited in so many aspects of matching our chosen materials. Trying to redo a town with concrete and stripped birch and not only do the birch planks not match the color of the stripped, I can't use smooth stone for stairs for the roof or the stairs to get in. 

    Please please please get us all matched up. Ostriches are nice (and my favorite animal) but I think having some consistancy in our building blocks would be a better use of time. (I play on bedrock)

    I completely agree with you. These monochrome steps are already boring. I want something new. I hope the developers will see this post.

    I really need to add detailed color to my builds but there are no colorful slabs or stairs.

    I'm trying to make a bunker thing in mc and its made out of concrete and its all white to make it look sterile and this would make it so much better so everything looks nice this could also be nice in mini games as well

     I totally agree, I have a texture I use as Gray Terracotta on Nether Bricks, So I can use the Slab and Stairs. Which makes it hard to use some blocks, Having Terracotta and Concrete Slabs, Stairs and Walls Gives Players to expand their block options and Allows them to add more depth and detail to there builds if We have this option.

    At this point I think we should be able to make stairs slabs and walls out of all stone like blocks using the stonecutter.
    Terracotta, concrete, nether quartz and so on.
    Imagine the possibilities!

    We really need more white options for stairs and slabs other than quartz. Obviously quartz is going to become a lot rarer since the nether biomes are being updated and  that will reduce the area where quartz can be found. Having only one white slab or stair craft-able block seems like a really big restriction on the game.  Diorite doesn't count because it's really a gray block.

    It's extremely frustrating not having these options, so I stand by this 100% !!

    I would use them for colored roofs, chairs/sofas, detailed pixel art, signs, terraforming

    The fact that you can't make concrete stairs baffles me, considering how many times I've had to pour concrete stairs IRL.

    We REALLY need this feature. It would be easy to all minecraft players/builders to create new and creative constructions! ;)

    I think this is a amazing idea for builders like myself this would give more aspect to the game I think that this would inspire people like me to play the game more and just have fun!

    I support this idea, because colored slabs and stairs would look beautiful.

    I would love for this to be a thing so that I could make black and dark grey roads for cities and other details to my builds, like colored chairs and couches.

    Concrete is made up of pieces of rock, water, sand and cement, and if concrete is made of rock then it should receive its own slabs and stairs, like other types of stone. Also, it can really add a touch of color to constructions if we don't have only concrete blocks and powder.

    Unlike other blocks, concrete looks very smooth and vibrant and is vital in making structures. It's especially useful in making pixel art. So, if you make it into slabs and stairs, it can look REALLY good. Microsoft, please implement this into Minecraft.

    This is a really good idea because without these blocks, there are no colourful slabs, stairs and walls

    this needs to be added because it is impossible to have a good-looking colorful roof without concrete and terracotta slabs and stairs.
