In this tutorial, we will introduce the different types of beds in Stardew Valley and how to obtain them. Beds serve a simple purpose: to sleep. When you approach a bed, you’ll be prompted with the question, “Do you want to sleep for the night?” Regardless of whether it’s 6 a.m. or late at night, selecting “Yes” will end the day and save your progress. This is the only way to save in the computer and console versions of the game. In multiplayer mode, standing on a bed will gradually restore your energy.
Beds can only be placed in farmhouses, specifically the main farmhouse and Ginger Island farmhouse. They cannot be placed in the basement, small or large cabins, and only the host can place or move beds in multiplayer cabins. There are two types of beds: single beds and double beds. There are three kinds of single beds: the default single bed, the child’s bed, and the tropical bed.
No matter which map you choose, the single bed will be the same in each farmhouse, though other furniture may vary. You can also purchase the single bed from Robin’s shop for 500g. However, there’s not much need to buy it since you can’t place it anywhere else. Perhaps this is to prevent players from accidentally throwing their beds away at the start of the game.
Later on, you can get the default single bed for free from the Furniture Catalogue. After upgrading your house, the single bed will be replaced with a double bed, and the remaining single beds will not be returned.
The child’s bed looks exactly like the single bed, probably because the game’s creator took a shortcut in design. After the second house upgrade, you will receive two free child’s beds, or you can buy them from Robin for 2,000g each. These beds are purely decorative, and you can also get them for free from the Furniture Catalogue.
The tropical single bed comes with the Ginger Island farmhouse. Its blanket is made of leaves, fitting the island’s style. You can also obtain it by trading 20 ginger with the island merchant, or get it for free from the Furniture Catalogue.
Double beds come in 11 styles, each with its own unique design, and can be matched with various room themes. They offer a better decoration effect compared to single beds. After upgrading your house, you will receive a free double bed, or you can purchase one from Robin’s shop for 2,000g, or get it for free from the Furniture Catalogue.
The Modern Double Bed has a slightly purple hue and resembles Mr. Qi’s style. You can buy it for 8,000 Qi coins at the casino, but you can also get it for free from the Furniture Catalogue. It’s better to save your Qi coins for other items, like the teleporter and hardwood fences.
The Tropical Double Bed is the double version of the Tropical Bed. On Sundays, you can trade five bananas for it at the Ginger Island merchant, but you can also get it for free from the Furniture Catalogue.
It’s unclear why the Furniture Catalogue, which is sold by Robin, contains beds from places like the casino and Ginger Island even if she hasn’t visited those locations.
During Penny’s 14-heart event, you can choose to redecorate the bedroom with three different styles. Choosing the “Forest and Moon” option will give you the Starry Night Bed and a room with a celestial theme.
The Strawberry Home option gives you a Strawberry Bed and a strawberry-themed room. The Pirate Theme option provides a Pirate Ship Bed and a pirate-themed room. All three double beds can be obtained from the Furniture Catalogue.
However, some exclusive decorative items can only be obtained through Penny’s redecorating event, so you won’t be able to recreate the exact look without marrying Penny. Additionally, this event can only be triggered once, so you cannot collect all the unique decorations in a single save file.
There are five more double beds that cannot be obtained from the Furniture Catalogue and must be purchased from various shops. The Birch Double Bed can be acquired by trading a pearl with the desert merchant, making it one of the primary uses for pearls. This bed is quite aesthetically pleasing and suitable for a child’s room.
The Deluxe Red Double Bed can be purchased from Robin’s shop for 6,000g after completing her special quest, “Robin’s Project.” It seems that the 80 hardwood you provided for the quest is not factored into the cost.
The Bizarre Bed can be obtained by trading 50 Qi gems at Mr. Qi’s Walnut Room. If you have excess Qi gems, this bed is a luxurious option, much better than the ones available at the casino, although the color may not be to everyone’s liking.
The Wild Double Bed can be acquired by trading 100 Cinder Shards with the Ginger Island merchant. This bed shares the same design as the Bizarre Bed, but with a different color. It raises the question of whether the owl head on the bed is related to Mr. Qi and if the parrot shares a connection with him as well.
The Fisherman Double Bed can be purchased from Willy for 25,000g. It has a ragged appearance, which may not appeal to everyone. In total, there are 11 types of double beds available in the game.
It would be great if Robin could expand the farmhouse further to accommodate more beds. Which bed do you like the most? Feel free to share your thoughts and discuss in the comment section below. Thank you for reading, and see you in the next tutorial.
