Beds are furniture items which allow the player to set a new spawn point by pressing the Open / Activate button on the foot half of the Bed. This requires it to be placed in a mostly valid house (see details below). On the Desktop version Desktop version, Console version Console version, and Mobile version Mobile version, Beds furthermore allow the player to sleep in them by pressing the Open / Activate button on the head half of the Bed. This makes time pass five times faster and gives a boost to health regeneration, similar to chairs and Sofas.

Beds fulfill the chair requirement for the purposes of housing. Like most other furniture, the direction a Bed is placed in depends on the direction the player is facing when placing it.

There are currently 35 craftable Beds and 5 that can be acquired from the environment. All Beds are functionally identical and differ only in appearance.


"Sleeping" redirects here. For the NPC, see Sleeping Angler.

Desktop/Console/Mobile-Only Content: This section's information applies only to the Desktop, Console, and Mobile versions of Terraria.

Pressing Open / Activate on the head of a bed causes the player to lie down and sleep (indicated by their eyes closing), which accelerates time by five times its normal rate (1 hour of in-game time, which would usually take 1 minute of real-life time, takes only 12 seconds while sleeping. A full day and night cycle takes 288 seconds or 4 minutes and 48 seconds). This affects game time, including watches, the sun and moon, plant growth, and background animations (but not buff durations, NPC movement or other animations).

  • It is not possible to accelerate time by sleeping during invasion events, including Blood Moons, Solar Eclipse and Lunar Events, or when an Enchanted Sundial is advancing time, but the player can still lie on beds.
  • Sleeping does not affect potion cooldowns or durations. However, it does give a boost on health regeneration. The latter effect is shared with chairs and sofas.
  • Time acceleration in multiplayer requires that all players be asleep.
  • While sleeping, players can still interact with the environment without being kicked out of the bed. Some actions cause the player's eyes to open and time to revert to normal, whereas others do not:
Eyes will open and time will revert to normal Eyes will stay closed and time will stay accelerated
  • Getting hit by an enemy, using items that can be swung (such as tools and most melee weapons), or pressing any movement keys will cause the player to get out of bed, and time to revert to normal.

Setting player spawn point

Pressing Open / Activate on the foot of a bed, when it is placed in a valid house, sets the player's spawn point to that bed. This is signified by the status message "Spawn point set!" When the same is done on a bed that has already been set as the player's spawn point, the status message "Spawn point removed!" is shown, and the player's spawn point is set back to the world's default.

The bed set as the player's current spawn point will be indicated with a Map Bed.png bed icon on the player's minimap.

For a bed to function properly as a spawn point, it must be in a valid house. Other than the bed itself, no other furniture or lighting is required. There must also be clear space at the head of the bed for the player to stand. A bed may be placed in a non-rectangular room, as long as the leftmost 3 tiles immediately above it are left clear.

For example: There may be a bed (4×2) surrounded by blocks on the left, right, and bottom, and above the foot of the bed, as long as there is space for the player to spawn at the head of the bed.

The top-left 3 tiles just above the bed are clear. The mirror image of this arrangement is also valid.

  • It is advisable to place and activate a bed in the same house the Nurse is living in, so immediate healing is available after recalling or respawning. Be careful not to reset the spawn point by accidentally hitting the bed upon pressing the Nurse's "heal" button, in case she is standing in front of the bed.
  • There are many naturally-generated structures which can serve as suitable locations for a bed, such as Underground Cabins or the houses on Floating Islands. Some might require minor modifications, e.g. to fill background wall holes.
  • Upon obtaining the Shellphone, you will now have the ability to teleport selectively to your bed spawn point or the world spawn point at any time. You may thus find it useful to move your home spawn point away from the world spawn, so that you can have two home bases.
