Did you know that the default White Bed in Minecraft can be colored differently? In total, there are 16 colors of beds to choose from. You can use colored Beds for aesthetic purposes, thematic reasons or even just to tell your room apart from a friend’s. It is easy to color a bed from the default white.
For each color of bed, there is an appropriate dye and to craft a Blue Bed, the player will need at least one Blue Dye. Most likely, the player will stumble upon Lapis Lazuli while mining in caves or strip-mining. It is about as common as Redstone and this can be directly crafted into blue dye. However, other sources of blue dye actually exist including the cornflower. Read on to find out how to obtain these flowers.
You will need to craft Blue Dye in order to make a Blue Bed.
In a Nutshell: Interact with a Crafting Table and fill the bottom row of cells of the crafting grid with three Wooden Planks. Then, place three wool in the center row of the crafting grid.
Cornflower can be found in most vegetation biomes besides Forests and Swamps.
Sheep will regrow their Wool after eating some grass.
Any variety will do.
Congrats! You’ve completed your Bed and can now sleep at night.
At night or during thunderstorms in the Overworld, the player can now sleep in Bed. Sleeping takes 5 seconds to complete and skips until the next morning. It also changes your spawn point from the world spawn to the location of the bed. However, sleeping can be interrupted if you sleep in an unsafe position. Please ensure you are in a private area before sleeping or else you may be rudely awakened by enemy mobs. In fact, if you manage to last 3 days without sleeping, you will be haunted by specters until you finally rest. Sleeping is useful because it lets you skip the time where mobs spawn, and thus allows you to continue exploring safely.
Simply press the use key on the bed to sleep.
Q. Is there any other way that I can change the color of my bed?
There are two alternate ways that a player can change the color of their bed in Minecraft. One way is to craft a White Bed and then dye it, and the other option is to directly dye wool. However, the method in our guide is the most efficient.
Q. Can I change my spawn point without a bed?
Yes, but you must have cheats enabled. Simply type /spawnpoint to change where you return after you are killed.
Coloring your Bed gives no gameplay benefits but can certainly make a player more attached to their base. Typically in multiplayer games, players like to customize their homes and rooms to distinguish their belongings from their co-op partners. One great way to add color to your room and set it apart from others is by dyeing your bed. No longer will you need to argue about whose bed is whose!
