Beds are objects in The Sims that increase a Sim's energy and comfort, and decreases their stress[TS3]. Both single and double beds can be found in buy mode under "Bedroom" or "Comfort". Cribs serve the same purpose for babies and toddlers in The Sims 2 and The Sims 3. In The Sims 4, babies use a bassinet and toddlers use special toddler beds. They can be found under "Kids". Single beds will only fit one Sim, while a double bed can fit two, but the two Sims will only sleep together if they have a good relationship. Kids will sleep together regardless, although they will not sleep together if one or the other is in their undies.[TS2]

Price[edit | edit source]

Beds come in a range of prices from cheap to expensive. In general, more expensive beds do a better job of restoring energy and comfort. Also in The Sims 3 and The Sims 4, sleeping in cheap beds will sometimes give Sims negative moodlets when they wake up.

In The Sims Life Stories, there is a §9,000 bed that is only unlocked in story rewards for Riley. This bed is called the "Fertillinator", and will increase the chance of success when trying for a baby.

Interactions[edit | edit source]

Sims can be directed to sleep in a bed when their energy motive is below 50%[n 1], and will autonomously sleep in one if they are very tired. Sims will autonomously choose to sleep in the bed that belongs to them,[TS2][TS3][TS4] or the nearest bed to them if no other options are available. In The Sims 2, players can choose whether Sims will sleep in their undies or in their PJs; in other games, they will always sleep in their PJs. The Sims 3 and The Sims 4 allow Sims to nap in beds, which is similar to napping on couches and recliners. Starting with The Sims 2, Sims of all ages can experience nightmares. In The Sims 4, however, only toddlers and scared Sims can experience them.

In The Sims 2 and The Sims 3, Sims can relax on beds, and will often do so autonomously to fulfill their comfort motive. In The Sims 2, Sims can choose to daydream or read a book while relaxing on a bed, and can watch TV if one is in the same room. If the bed is a double bed, they will socialize with any Sim relaxing in the same or different beds, and is a prerequisite for romantic interactions like WooHoo.[TS2][TS3] Although the interaction does not exist in the same capacity in The Sims 4, a similar equivalent allows Sims to sit on the edge of the bed. In The Sims 2, Sims must cancel the interaction and get out of bed before they can sleep in it, unless they had WooHoo, where they will usually go to sleep immediately afterwards. In The Sims 3, Sims relaxing on a bed do not need to get out of it to go to sleep or vice versa. In The Sims 2, besides relaxing, playful Sims and children can jump on beds for fun.

Beds are considered to be "owned" by a Sim in The Sims 2 and The Sims 3 when they are the first Sim to sleep in it after purchase. Sims will usually autonomously choose to sleep in that bed when tired, or will often run to that bed when they witness one of their parents fighting.[TS2] Sims have sometimes been known to "forget" which bed belonged to them.[n 2] In The Sims 3: University Life, the player can manually choose which bed belongs to which Sim; this feature comes in handy with dormitories, as it will prevent other Sims from sleeping in a Sim's bed.

In The Sims 3: Supernatural and The Sims 4 with Patch 36, a bed may have a monster underneath it during nighttime. These manifest if a child finds one after checking a bed[TS3:SN] or while sleeping in one.[TS4]. Children receiving the negative moodlet will be unable to sleep in the checked bed, while in The Sims 4 the child will be awoken and unable to sleep in any until warded off. Such instance can be countered prior by having older Sim on the same lot promise them protection[TS3:SN], or be repelled by having a carer Spray Monster Repellent or installing the "Defender" lamp in the room.[TS4] On the other hand, if the children don't find any monsters under the bed, they will get "No Monsters" moodlet, which will boost their energy need while sleeping. In The Sims 4, children can even befriend said monster.

Patch 91 of The Sims 4 added the ability for sims to upgrade all beds for higher energy and comfort gain.

Bed types[edit | edit source]

Single beds[edit | edit source]

Single beds are one of the two main types of beds in The Sims series. One single bed has a size of 1x3 and will only fit one Sim.

Double beds[edit | edit source]

Double beds are the second main type of bed in The Sims series. A double bed can fit two Sims, but they will only sleep together if they have a good relationship. Kids will sleep together regardless, although they will not sleep together if one or the other is in their undies.[TS2]

Bunk beds[edit | edit source]

Bunk beds are a type of bed in which two single beds are stacked on top of another, allowing for the beds to occupy the floor space usually required by just one. The Sims Online was the first game overall to feature bunk beds, but The Sims 3: Generations is the first expansion in the main series to include them. Sometimes, Sims who wake up in the top bunk can be very daring and jump off. Bunk beds were added to The Sims 4 in Patch 109.

Loft beds[edit | edit source]

These function similarly to bunk beds, but are vacant at the bottom, allowing room for furniture or other objects. Loft beds are available in The Sims 3: Generations (as well as a few packs released afterwards) and The Sims 4.

Murphy beds[edit | edit source]

Murphy beds are a type of bed included in The Sims 2: Apartment Life, The Sims 3: University Life and The Sims 4: Tiny Living Stuff. They fold into the wall to save space and unlike double beds, Murphy beds take a 2x4 size, with the extra space to folds the bed.

However, unlike real-life Murphy beds, the space used by an opened bed is still considered to be in use when the bed is closed. While Sims are able to walk through that space, objects cannot be placed in that space without using the moveobjects cheat.

Special beds[edit | edit source]

Fertillinator[edit | edit source]

In The Sims Life Stories, there is a §9,000 bed that is only unlocked in story rewards for Riley. This bed is called the "Fertillinator", and will increase the chance of success when trying for a baby.

Coffins[edit | edit source]

Vampires can sleep in regular beds, although they can also opt to sleep in a coffin, which will protect them from sunlight during the day and replenish their motives better. Coffins exist in The Sims 2: Nightlife, The Sims 3: Late Night, and The Sims 4: Vampires. These coffins can only be used by vampires, although normal Sims can choose to sneak on a vampire coffin.

Vampires will receive the "Slept Like the Dead" moodlet from using a coffin.[TS3]

Hover beds[edit | edit source]

A hover bed in Generations.

The Sims 3: Generations added a hover bed as a lifetime reward. It is a floating double bed which gives Sims a Gently Floating (+10) moodlet while they sleep in it.

The Sims 4: Get Famous introduced a sleeping pod, which can float like a hover bed. However, it functions more like a dream pod than a hover bed.

Dream pods[edit | edit source]

Main article: Dream pod
A dream pod.

The Sims 3: Into the Future added a special type of bed, called a dream pod. Unlike other beds, a dream pod can change a Sim's life by providing a unique dream, which grants the Sim special effects when they wake up.

Bed & Breakfast Topical Cot[edit | edit source]

Bed & Breakfast Topical Cot

In The Sims 3, there is a bed in buydebug called as Bed & Breakfast Topical Cot, which was added in Patch 55. This bed makes hygiene decrease faster.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  1. In The Sims and The Sims 2, how low a Sim's energy motive needs to be depends on the Sim's Lazy/Active score, though it will not be below 50%.
  2. There is a mod available for The Sims 2 at, which resolves the issue for players that had encountered it
