How to make a red bed in Minecraft

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 Red Bed, the player will need at least one Red Dye. Thankfully, Red Dye is one of the easiest and most plentiful in the Overworld. Players can find Red Dye from Poppy flowers, Red Tulip flowers and even Beetroot!


Required Materials to craft a Red Bed


To craft a Red Bed in Minecraft, you will need the following:

  1. Any Wooden Planks (x3)
  2. Wool (x3, Red)


You will need to craft Red Dye in order to make a Red Bed.

Congrats! You’ve completed your Bed and can now sleep at night.


How to use a Red Bed in Minecraft?


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.

FAQs


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 on health.


Conclusion


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!
