How to make a bed in Terraria

0

While there’s so much you need to accomplish after first jumping into Terraria, one of the most important tools you need to craft first is a bed. Not only does it provide a boost in health generation, but you can pass the time faster while sleeping. More importantly, it creates a spawn point.

This guide shows you how to make a bed using wood. But the process takes time. Not only do you need to gather resources — one of which can be extremely time-consuming — but you need to build five crafting stations in a specific order. Only then can you finally build a basic bed.

At the end of this guide, we list all the different beds you can make, the ingredients you need, and their required crafting station.

Here are your basic ingredients. You’ll either use them as is or smelted in the furnace to create another ingredient. Each part of this guide will tell you exactly how much you need.

General ingredients:

Crafting stations (in order):

Note: If you don’t have the ingredients needed to create an item, you won’t see it shown in the Crafting Menu until you do.

Cobwebs will be your hardest ingredients to find. They’re located deep down in caves, spider caves, tunnels, and underground rooms and mines. We found this batch in an underground room, which wasn’t much. We didn’t stumble across a motherlode until we dug deep, deep underground, and dropped into a cavern loaded with cobwebs.

The Crafting Menu is part of the Inventory interface. To open it, press the following key or button:

First, you need this item to craft most everything else required to build your bed. The screenshot above shows that Bird Head simply placed it on the ground and then started building a house around it.

Ingredients:

Step 1: Open your Inventory and Crafting Menu.

Step 2: Select the Work Bench in the Crafting Menu.

Step 2: Place your Work Bench anywhere.

You’ll need this item to explore caves and create your next crafting station, the Furnace.

Ingredients:

Step 1: Approach the Work Bench

Step 2: Open your Inventory and Crafting Menu.

Step 3: Scroll through the Crafting Menu until you find the torch.

Step 4: Drag the resulting three torches into your inventory.

You’ll need this crafting station, shown to the left of Bird Head, to smelt iron ore and create the anvil.

Ingredients:

Step 1: Approach the Work Bench.

Step 2: Open your Inventory and Crafting Menu.

Step 3: Select the Furnace in the Crafting Menu.

Step 4: Place your Furnace anywhere.

You need this crafting station, shown to the right of Bird Head, to create chains, which is one of the ingredients to create a Sawmill.

Ingredients:

Step 1: Approach the Furnace.

Step 2: Open your Inventory and Crafting Menu.

Step 3: Select the iron bar in the Crafting Menu and drag it into your inventory.

Step 4: Repeat these steps until you have five iron bars.

Step 4: The anvil is now available. Select it and place it on the ground.

Finally. We’re getting closer to our bed. The Sawmill, shown to the right of Bird Head, will be the crafting table we use to make the bed once we craft silk.

Ingredients:

Step 1: Approach the Work Bench.

Step 2: Open your Inventory and Crafting Menu.

Step 3: Select the Sawmill in the Crafting Menu.

Step 4: Place your Sawmill anywhere.

Shown to the left of Bird Head, the Loom is your last crafting station of the day. Really. We promise.

Ingredients:

Step 1: Approach the Sawmill.

Step 2: Open your Inventory and Crafting Menu.

Step 3: Select the Loom in the Crafting Menu

Step 4: Place your Loom anywhere.

Time to make your silk sheets!

Ingredients:

Step 1: Approach the Loom.

Step 2: Open your Inventory and Crafting Menu.

Step 3: Select the silk material in the Crafting Menu

Step 4: Drag the silk into your inventory.

Step 5: Repeat these steps four more times to craft all five silks.

Finally! Now you can move on to craft a basic bed!

If you’re aiming to create something unusual, like a Bone Bed, we provide information at the end listing each bed and their main ingredient. Simply replace the wood for the main ingredient — you’ll still need the five silk.

Ingredients

Step 1: Approach the Sawmill.

Step 2: Open your Inventory and Crafting Menu.

Step 3: Select the bed in the Crafting Menu

Step 4: Place your bed anywhere.

All bed types listed below use the Sawmill and require five silk each in addition to the main ingredient. Shown above is the Mushroom Bed in our mushroom house we created just for our little blue guy, Bird Head.

Although you can craft these beds in the Sawmill, this method is only available on console and mobile.

There are other bed types you can create, but they require different crafting stations not presented in this guide. Shown above is the Living Wood Bed we created using the Living Loom crafting station we found while making this guide.
