Beds were added to Minecraft in February 2011, in beta version 1.3, alongside redstone repeaters and sandstone slabs. Originally, a creepy-sounding block called "crying obsidian", made of obsidian and lapis, was going to be put into the game to let the user change their spawn point. But then beds came along instead. Beds have changed in functionality a little over the years. Originally, sleeping in an area where monsters could get to you would sometimes cause you to wake up early, under attack from a skeleton or a zombie. This functionality was removed in version 1.0, and today instead it's impossible to sleep if you're in an area with monsters around.

Duncan Geere[1]

A bed is a block that allows a player to sleep and to reset their spawn point to within a few blocks of the bed in the Overworld. If the bed is obstructed, the player spawns at the default world spawning location.

Occurrence[edit]

Natural generation[edit]

A red bed naturally generates in each igloo.

Beds of various colors generate in village houses, depending on the specific structure and biome:

  • Desert village houses can have cyan, green, or lime beds.
  • Plains village houses can have white or yellow beds.
  • Savanna village houses can have orange, red, or yellow beds.
  • Snowy taiga[BE only] and taiga village houses can have blue or purple beds.
  • Snowy tundra village houses can have blue, red, or white beds.

Placement[edit]

Beds require two blocks of floor space. Placement requires at least 2 blocks from the player's facing direction. When placed, the foot of the bed is placed on the block selected and the head of the bed on the block farther away from the player. In Bedrock Edition, beds require solid blocks below them when placed. However, the bed remains in place if its supporting blocks are later removed. In Java Edition, beds do not require supporting blocks and can be placed anywhere, provided there is enough room.

Obtaining[edit]

Block loot[edit]

Sleeping[edit]

The animation when falling asleep.

Beds are used by pressing the use item button while looking at the bed.

A player sleeps by use a bed during a thunderstorm, or at night (between 12541 and 23458 ticks, when stars appear in the sky). Attempting to use a bed at any other time results in the message "You can sleep only at night and during thunderstorms"‌[JE only] or "You can only sleep at night".‌[BE only] A player sleeps in a bed for 101 in-game ticks, or 5.05 seconds before the time skips to the next day. Sleeping in a bed with the /gamerule doDaylightCycle set to false results in the player being kicked out of the bed after the 101 ticks, but does not change time of the world to day.

A player sleeping in a bed is possible only in the Overworld. Attempting to use a bed in the Nether and the End causes it to explode and set fire to surrounding blocks;[2] a bed also explodes if used in any nether biome. The explosion has power 5, which is stronger than TNT (4), but not as strong as a charged creeper or end crystal (6). Villagers can sleep normally in any dimension.[3]

The player must be close to the bed to sleep. If the player is close enough to click on the bed, but not close enough to sleep in it, the message "You may not rest now, the bed is too far away"‌[JE only]/"The bed is too far away"‌[BE only] appears.

If a "monster" is within 8 blocks of the bed horizontally (in the X- and Z-axis), and 5 blocks vertically (in the Y-axis), the message "You may not rest now, there are monsters nearby" appears and the player is prevented from sleeping until the monsters leave or are killed. Most hostile mobs, as well as some neutral mobs prevent players from sleeping, as shown in the table below.

If the player has not entered a bed (or died) for 3 in-game days, phantoms can spawn unless /gamerule doInsomnia is set to false.

The player also cannot sleep in a bed occupied by another player, resulting in the message, "This bed is occupied".

A player can, however, sleep in a bed being used by a villager. The player may first wake the villager (pressing use on the villager) and then quickly enter the bed before the villager can lie down again. The villager reclaims the bed after the player wakes. The villager is kicked out of its bed when a player attempts to sleep there.

A player also cannot sleep while on fire, while poisoned, or while starving.

If all sleeping requirements are met and the player enters a bed, the player is positioned in the bed. The player falls asleep as the screen fades to black. In Bedrock Edition, the sleeping animation slowly lowers the player into bed.

Once all players in a world are asleep, after 5 seconds (101 ticks) the time of day changes to sunrise.

During this time, the chat window is focused, and the player can leave the bed by clicking the Leave Bed button.

Waterlogged beds‌[Bedrock Edition only] cannot be slept in unless the player or villager has the Water Breathing or Conduit Power status effects. Attempting to use a waterlogged bed otherwise does not display any message.[4]

Beds displaying an error above the hotbar is a feature exclusive to beds; other blocks that cannot be used do not display such a message.[5]

Passing the night[edit]

Sleeping changes the time of day to sunrise and resets the weather to clear weather. The player wakes up next to the bed, facing west.

Sleeping does not accelerate processes that take place over time such as the growth of crops or smelting. If /gamerule doDaylightCycle is false, the player instead wakes up in the night.

To skip the night in multiplayer, all players in the Overworld must be in bed at the same time. Pressing the Leave Bed button is not necessary in this case.

If the bed is destroyed while the player is in it, due to for example an explosion or by another player, the player wakes prematurely and the night does not pass.

Setting the spawn point[edit]

Once a player has entered a bed, their spawn point is set to the location of that bed.

Using a bed in the daytime likewise sets the spawn point, without actually entering the bed.

The message "Respawn point set" is displayed in chat when the respawn point is successfully changed.

The bed is in no way tied to a player's spawn point – the game checks for the presence of a bed at a player's spawn point only at the time the player respawns. The bed may be destroyed, replaced, reoriented, etc. and still serve as a spawn point for players so long as there is a bed in that location at the moment the player tries to respawn. If a player's bed is destroyed, or if the area around the bed is made unsuitable for respawning, a message is displayed saying Your home bed was missing or obstructed[until JE 1.16] (or You have no home bed or respawn anchor, or it was obstructed[upcoming: JE 1.16]), and the player respawns at the world spawn point.

For a bed to be usable as a spawn point, the player must be able to stand next to the bed at the same level as it. There must be a solid block at the same "floor" level as the bed, with 2 transparent blocks of space (for example, air) for the player to stand in, in one of the ten blocks that surround the bed. It does not matter if the bed itself has blocks above it.

Bouncing[edit]

Falling onto a bed bounces the player with 66% strength – the bouncing-up velocity is 66% of the impact velocity. The player also takes 50% of normal fall damage.

Baby villagers bounce on beds during the day.

If the player is falling while sleeping requirements are met, and presses use on a bed within reach before hitting the ground, the fall damage is delayed until the player wakes.

Housing[edit]

Beds are used to count the number of houses in a village, with one bed equating to one house.

Curing[edit]

Beds speed up the curing process of zombie villagers.

Issues[edit]

Issues relating to "Bed" are maintained on the bug tracker. Report issues there.

Trivia[edit]

  • If the player quits the game while sleeping, upon return the player wakes beside the bed.
  • The player's avatar clips just slightly into the bed if they have something in their hand and their feet protrude off the edge.
  • Using the /teleport command while another player is sleeping still teleports the sleeping player, but the player wakes immediately.‌[Java Edition only]
  • If the player places a bed on ice, running over the bed acts like running over ice, similar to slabs.
  • Before differently colored beds were added, using all 6 planks and all 16 wool combinations, there were 3,456 different ways to craft a bed.
  • When placed using the /setblock command, only one half of a bed is placed, because beds are two blocks long. A single half can be slept in like a whole bed.
  • Villagers can sleep in the Nether and the End without causing the bed to explode.[10]
  • If the player crouches while attempting to sleep the player gets inside the sheets.
  • While the block state used to determine the half of a two-block block such as doors and double-tall flowers is called half, in the case of beds this is called part.
  • Due to how beds work in the Nether, players can exploit the method to clear out large chunks of blocks in the dimension, especially when finding Ancient Debris.
