How to make a bed in Minecraft? (colorful)

Minecraft bed

Everyone needs to sleep, from cats and tigers to ants, and of course, your Minecraft character!!! But the point is, you cannot create a wooden shack and sleep on the floor; you need to make a bed for yourself.

In this brief post, I will show how to make a bed in Minecraft, what are Minecraft bed designs, and what are Minecraft bunk beds. 

Required Materials to Craft a Bed 

Before reaching to advanced steps of creating a Minecraft bed, we should know what we need as the material. Any Minecraft bed needs at least three main ingredients to be crafted:

  • Crafting table

This is the main tool you need almost always to craft new things on Minecraft.

  •  Wood

To create a Minecraft bed, you need three wood planks. In order to get them, find yourself a tree and chop it down. You can use your tools and weapons – even your fists – to chop trees, but this is not true for swords. Remember that one woodblock equals four wood plank blocks.

  •  Wool

The next material for a Minecraft bed is wool. How much wool do you need to craft a bed? To make a bed for yourself, you need a minimum of three wools, and you will need shears to gather wool from live sheep or kill them and gather wool from their remains. You can also make an automatic wool factory in Minecraft, though this is not as easy as we are talking about.

How to make a bed in Minecraft

Now let’s see how to make a bed in Minecraft with our basic materials. Note that this method is applied with white wool. Follow these steps:

  • First, open your 3×3 Crafting Table and put one woodblock into any of the nine squares in the crafting grid.
  • Next, place three wood plank blocks into the bottom three squares in the crafting grid.
  • Now put three wool blocks of the same colors into the middle three squares in the crafting grid.
  • Finally, the Minecraft bed is ready for you.

How to craft a colorful bed in Minecraft?

If you want to try making a Minecraft bed with natural-colored wools, you have limited options; only white, black, gray, light gray, and brown sheep are available in the game. If you want to have purple or blue wool, you need to dye your sheep or wool first.

To make a dye on your crafting table, there are several recipes, and we have collected some of them here:

Color type: Light gray

What do we need for this color? You can add:

  • One Azure bluet in the first box of the crafting table
  • One Gray Dye in the first box of the crafting table and one White Dye in the second box
  • One Black Dye in the first box of the crafting table and one White Dye in boxes two and three

Color type: Dark gray

What do we need for this color? You can add:

  • One Black Dye in the first box of the crafting table and one White Dye in the second box

To dye your wool, open your crafting table, and then put a block of wool in the first box on the bottom row of the crafting table and your dye next to it in the second box. It doesn’t make a difference what the color of your dye exactly is; the wool will change to the color of your paint. 

You can also dye wool still attached to sheep. To do that, hold the dye in your hand and select the sheep by right-clicking, using the left trigger, or tapping and holding on to the target sheep. 

Since you provide the colored wool, follow these steps to create a Minecraft bed:

  • Firstly, place one wood plank block into the bottom three squares of the crafting grid.
  • Next, place three wool blocks of the same color into the middle three squares in the crafting grid.
  • You can move your newly created Minecraft bed to your inventory.

How to use your bed in Minecraft?

To use the bed, you don’t need any instruction; just place the bed into your Hotbar, select it, and then place it in the world. Remember that a Minecraft bed requires two blocks of space; however, Minecraft bunk beds need more.

How to make a dog bed in Minecraft

If you have any pet (dog or cat) in Minecraft, you should also look after it. To keep your pet alive and youthful, make a bed for it. Follow these steps to make a dog Minecraft bed: 

  • First, you will need 4 boards of your choice, eight wooden traps, and a lovely cat or dog.
  • Next, make a 2 x 2 square with the plates.
  • Now, surround the square with folding door signs.
  • Finally, put your pet in the finished bed.
