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 Cyan Bed, the player will need at least one Cyan Dye. Cyan Dye cannot be extracted from a plant or creature and must be crafted by combining one Green Dye and one Blue Dye. Read on to find out where to get this coveted color.
You will need to craft Cyan Dye in order to make a Cyan Bed.
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. Sleeping 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 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 allows you to skip the time where mobs spawn and allows you to continue exploring safely.
Sleep in the bed at night by pressing the use key.
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 be killed while sleeping?
While the player cannot die before awakening, you can wake up to the hissing and explosion of a Creeper, which may in fact kill the player if they are low enough on health.
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!
