| ||For the effects of sleeping in a bed, see Resting.|
Beds come in a range of styles, from the basic military cot, narrow single beds with post headboards to the standard sized bed with a mattress. They can be found in settlements, pre-War buildings and in makeshift shelters throughout the Commonwealth. They can be used to rest in order to wait for time to pass and/or recover health. Sleeping in a bed at a player character-owned settlement will grant the Well Rested perk. If sleeping in close proximity to a romanced companion, the perk Lover's Embrace will be awarded instead.
In survival mode, a bed can be slept in for a minimum of the seven hours required to recover health and crippled body parts. As with the sleeping bag and mattress, sleeping for the minimum time of one hour can lead to illness.
