How to Make a Bed in Minecraft

A bed is one of the blocks in Minecraft that you should make very early in the game, 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 really easy to get within the first few minutes of opening a Minecraft world for the first time. Beds are really important as they allow you to skip through the night once it starts to get dark, which prevents mobs from spawning at the surface. 

 

Required Materials to Craft a Bed:


You will need following to make a Chest in Minecraft:

  1. Crafting table
  2. 3 Wool
  3. 3 wooden planks

 

How to make a Chest in Minecraft?


In a Nutshell:


To make a bed, open the crafting area made up of the 3x3 grid. Place 3 wood planks in the last row, then fill up the second row with wool. To make a coloured variant, use wool of the color of your choice. Once you complete making the bed, move it to your inventory.


Step-by-Step Guide(with Pictures):


Here is the step-by-step pictorial guide you need to follow to make your bed in minecraft:


The first step in making chest is to cut down some wood to gather planks. To make a bed, for example, the player needs a minimum of 2 logs. It’s recommended, however, that the player cuts down more to begin their game.

 

When making a crafting table, start by converting those recently acquired logs into wooden planks. To make wooden planks, simply place the logs that were collected into one of the slots in the survival inventory crafting table, as demonstrated below.


Place the logs in Crafting table


Once the logs are converted into wooden planks, you can then progress to making a crafting table. To make a crafting table, place four wooden planks in the survival crafting menu to fill each of the slots in the square once, as demonstrated below.

Now that you have a crafting table, you must go out and look for some sheep. 

 

For a bed, you need to collect a minimum of 3 wool. Sometimes players will just kill the sheep, as that also drops wool, but the best way to do this is to use a pair of shears. 

Wool can be found on sheep in Minecraft, and you can use shears to collect that wool. A single sheep can produce infinite amounts of wool over time, but will only give out from 1-3 pieces each time they are sheared.

Shears are a tool created using two pieces of iron, and can be made as shown above. Simply place two iron ingots diagonally from each other in the survival inventory crafting table.


Now that you’ve made your shears, they’re ready for use!


Find a sheep


After finding a sheep, you can right-click the sheep with the shears to collect the sheep’s wool without hurting the mob itself.

Seeing as you only need 3 pieces of wool to make a bed, you might get enough wool on the first shear. If not, you can shear the other sheep in the area; if you only have the one by you, you can just wait for it to eat some grass.

First, place down the crafting table and open the crafting table GUI.

FAQs on bed in minecraft:


How do you sleep in Minecraft without a bed?

Unfortunately, there isn’t a way to sleep in Minecraft without a bed. If you do not have a bed, you must wait through the night. Some people like to sit AFK through the night, but it’s recommended that you keep working on your base or keep mining through the night to stay as productive as possible.


How do you make a bed explode in Minecraft?

Beds in Minecraft only explode in the Nether and the End. Trying to sleep in a bed in either of those dimensions will make the bed explode.

Conclusion


Congratulations! You have successfully made your bed in Minecraft. Now you may rest easily without any mobs spawning, and sleep away the nights so you can work and build in the day. Sleeping, although not vital in Minecraft, is recommended so that you are not threatened by the hostile mobs that spawn at night in the dark. It’s enough to encounter them in the mines as you’re searching for resources, let alone to have them banging on your front door at night.


Happy sleeping!
