In Minecraft, a bed is an important block that you can use to sleep through the night and have a safe place for you to respawn if you do unfortunately die whilst exploring your Minecraft world.
In this article, we will show you how to make a bed in Minecraft.
What You Need to Make a Bed in Minecraft
- x3 Pieces of Wool (all the same color)
- x3 Wooden Planks (can be any wood)
- 1x Crafting Table
How to Make a Bed in Minecraft
Step 1. Get your supplies
Wool can be made by killing/shearing sheep or combining 4 pieces of string together.
Hint: If you want a different colored bed, then use different colored wool.
Wooden planks can be made by cutting down logs and using them in your crafting menu.
Crafting tables can be made from 4 planks.
Step 2. Create your bed!
Now that you’ve got your supplies, just follow the below recipe once you’ve right-clicked your crafting table and you’ll have your very own bed.
Step 3. Place down your bed and wait for the night.
Remember, you can only sleep at night – and once it’s night, you can turn it to daytime by sleeping in the bed you just crafted by right-clicking it once.
But if it’s currently daytime and you want to set your spawn point right now, then feel free to place your bed down wherever you’d like and right-click it to set a fresh spawn location!
How to change a color of a bed in Minecraft?
There is only one real way of changing the color of your bed in Minecraft, and that will require you to make a fresh bed using different colored wool, depending on what you want your bed to look like.
All wool blocks in the game can be used in the bed recipe, so make sure to shear plenty of sheep so you can experiment with the type of bed you want in your Minecraft home.
Can you sleep in the Nether with a bed?
No, you can not sleep in the Nether with a bed. The game will simply not let you. In fact, if you place a bed in the nether and try to right-click it, it will explode right in front of you – so be careful!
If you’re looking to set your spawn point in the Nether, then consider using a portal frame instead so you can quickly leave and enter as you please.
Is there any way to sleep without a bed in Minecraft?
You can find and use a naturally spawned bed that some mobs have left behind in the world – the best place to find a naturally spawned bed is in a village.
Other than that, if you’re looking to sleep so you can turn night into day, then there is no other way. Outside of using cheats of course!
But if the night is upon you and you’ve got no way of skipping it to day, I would suggest burying yourself in a hole so you can be safe from the creatures of the night till it turns to day.
