How To Craft A Bed In Minecraft? The Step-By-Step Guide

How To Craft A Bed In Minecraft

Making bed in Minecraft

A bed is one of the blocks in Minecraft that you should make early on, probably before your first night unless you’d like to hide away until the morning. Beds are really simple to make, only needing two different ingredients that are easily acquired within the first few minutes of opening a Minecraft world for the first time. Beds are important as they allow you to skip through the night once it gets dark which prevents mobs from spawning at the surface.

Materials required

  • 3x Wool
  • 1x Wooden Plank
  • 1x Stick

The materials needed for a bed are pretty easy to acquire and take almost no effort, but wood can be more challenging. To efficiently get wood take a look for any trees nearby and start chopping away at the leaves. If you have a wooden plank or stick, then you’re ready to make a bed.

How to craft bed?

  • Place 3 wool blocks in a row on the ground.
  • The middle block should be placed slightly higher than the other two, as this will be the head of your bed. Now place the wooden plank or stick in the middle of the wool blocks.
  • To use your newly created bed, simply right-click it and select the “sleep” option. You will instantly skip through the night and return to daylight.

Why beds are important in Minecraft?

Beds are important because they allow you to sleep through the night without having to worry about mobs spawning. They are also great for making mob grinders.

It’s an in-game object that lets players regenerate health and mana points at a faster rate than normal. Using one also provides various other benefits such as removing negative status effects caused by weather conditions or healing items (we assume that if they’re not listed, beds don’t cure them). A list of additional bonuses provided by beds is below.

Beds provide the following benefits in Minecraft

  • Minor increases to all stats (except speed) during nighttime hours.
  • Grants protection from several bad effects like poison, wither, and instant damage.
  • Regenerates health at an accelerated rate (twice as fast).
  •  Refills mana points at double the normal rate.

Please note that beds only affect their users when they are in direct contact with them. As such, you need to take care of your bed by placing it in a well-lit room or building it into your house so no one will destroy it in the dark of night. Also keep in mind that beds also have durability, just like weapons, tools, and armor.

Mine of wood for bed

You can mine for wood to create your very own bed or live out of the cocoon hut that Endermen drop when they die by using the following steps. Additionally, you can also construct one with cobblestone if you have nothing else available. Creating one is rather easy once you know what it entails.

Step 1

Open your Crafting Table and place three blocks of wood in any of the crafting grid squares.

  • 1 wood block = 4 wood plank blocks

Step 2                           

Place two more wood planks in any of the squares, creating an “L” shape.

Step 3

Place two more wood planks in the remaining squares.

Step 4

Pick up your bed and place it down to finish crafting. You can use this bed to sleep through the night, which grants you the Well Rested status effect. This will regenerate your health further than usual if you let it complete overnight

How to dye a bed?

Dyeing your bedspread is a great way to add some color and personality to your bedroom. Follow these simple steps to craft a beautiful, colorful bedspread. There are sixteen colors of dyes a player can have in Minecraft. Colorful beds make a really good impression on the room’s surroundings. A player can combine any dye color with the white color to make different shades of beds. In another case, he can combine a bed of any color with the matching dye to make a bed of any color that can be re-dyed. Alternatively, to remove the dye shade from an already dyed bed, you can use bleach which removes the color from the bed. The dying of bed feature is available in the Java Edition of the game.

Materials required

  • A bedspread (any color)
  • Wool (any color)
  • A dye of your choice (see below for a list of available dyes)


The first thing you need to do is acquire the correct materials. You will need seven wood planks, three blocks of wool, and some string.

  • Craft four wooden planks by putting some wood in a crafting table.
  • Craft three blocks of wool by combining some more wool with some wood planks (this is done through the same inventory screen as the previous step).
  • Place five of your newly crafted wooden planks along with three blocks of your created wool on top of each other to make a bed frame (see picture). Once you have constructed this perfectly square frame it is now time for step three: creating the actual bed.
  • To do this, place one block of wool in each corner of the bed frame. This will eventually make the corners pop up, creating an uneven surface to put your last block on top.
  • Lastly, you need string! Take seven pieces of string and craft them into a bed to create your very own Minecraft bed. Now you can pass through nights with ease.
