Beds are a set of constructible settlement and world objects in Fallout 4 and its add-on Vault-Tec Workshop.


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. In order to accommodate settlers, each settlement needs to have a number of beds that are equal to or greater than the number of current inhabitants. Too few beds will cause happiness to drop. Beds should be placed in a sheltered location, with a floor beneath and with a roof.

They can be used to sleep 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 proximity to a romanced companion, the perk Lover's Embrace will be awarded instead. The Sole Survivor can sleep up to 24 hours in a bed, up to five hours on a mattress, and up to three hours in a sleeping bag or tent.

Survival mode

In Survival mode, sleeping in a bed for a minimum of seven hours is required to obtain the Well Rested perk. As with the sleeping bag and mattress, two hours of sleep is required to heal crippled limbs and begin to restoring hit points (further healing occurs with additional time). Sleeping for the minimum time of one hour has no effect other than to check for possible illness.[1]


Beds are located under Furniture → Beds in the workshop.
