I can't quite place a stair the direction I want it to go and I need to know the format of how to do that command. I have already attempted to do

/setblock ~ ~ ~ minecraft:stone_brick_stairs 2
                       and 
/setblock ~ ~ ~ minecraft:stone_brick_stairs 3 etc.

However I end up with either of these two situations:

stairs not forming a corner with the wall
stairs not connecting with the nearby stairs

but I want it to be like this:
stairs connecting to the wall AND nearby stairs

I've tried this but then it looks kinda ugly:
another set of stairs to create the corner but cutting into the wall

This is the whole room layout: room layout

  • I have a question about your layout. On the corner piece (the part you want the stair next to), the stair block goes along the wall (without a door), and that is evident in picture 2. What about the corner piece next the stair placed the way you want to (last picture)? Is it positioned the same way?

It seems that the problem is not with the setblock command, but with the stair position right behind it.

If I'm seeing this right...

▶ = stair placed sideways to wall ▼ = stair placed pointing away from wall

When you look at the stairs, corner stairs are actually placed in a certain way. These diagrams will represent the way they are placed. ◫ is a wall block. Do NOT remove the wall blocks. Only change the stairs that you have already placed.

First picture:

◫◫◫◫◫◫

◫▶

Second picture:

◫◫◫◫◫◫
◫▼▼▼▼▼
◫▼

This placement creates the stairs you want:

◫◫◫◫◫◫
◫▶▼▼▼▼
◫▼

Is it clearer now? Try placing by hand first before setblock so you can see where I'm getting at.

  • Sorry, I think you are misunderstanding what I'm saying. Don't remove the pillar. I'll update the answer shortly.

The corner stairs are not actually stairs rotated in that direction, but a special texture when the stair that is rotated 90 degrees from the original direction, thus to get the special rotation you need another stair next to it.
