What is a Trundle Bed

A trundle bed is a type of bed that comes with an extra bunk (trundle) easily fitted underneath the common style bed. It's a real area saver when it's stowed. And if necessary you can simply extend the trundle to get some additional sleeping space for your guests or kid's friends. Such beds are very useful and can be a perfect fit for small rooms and premises. With a trundle bed, you get an amazing chance to have a slumber party. Some models even feature the drawers to store some extra stuff like household items or kid's toys. All in all, a trundle bed is a multifunctional and convenient piece of furniture that can not only provide comfortable sleep but also let you save some effective space in your dwelling.

If you want to have an additional bunk that takes no space in the room, we strongly recommend paying your attention to one of the best folding beds presented in our reviews.

What Features to Compare

Dimensions and Bedframe 

Such parameters as dimensions and frame structure are essential for the right choice of a trundle bed. When you think of the place to put your daybed with a trundle it is important to consider its dimensions as the bed shouldn't be an obstacle on the way to other rooms or towards other pieces of furniture. Initially, this bed type is intended to save space in your house but you should remember that in the extended position it will take more space than in a stowed position with a trundle underneath. The service life of trundle beds directly depends on the bed frame design and the material it is made of. High-quality bed frames are made of solid wood. But, in general, it makes bed structure heavier and more difficult to assemble. Metal bedframes usually come assembled and do not require any additional adjustment. They are durable and lightweight, so, you can easily move such bed anywhere. Another highly important feature is a mattress support system. It should provide a secure rest for the mattress and, at the same time, fixation and ventilation. The wooden slats have orthopedic features such as better mattress buffering and maximum body support.  Metal spring units cope with this task pretty well either.

Sleeping space

Just like any other bed, trundle beds should ensure comfortable sleep. To avoid possible discomfort, you should select the right dimensions of the bunk. Select a trundle that is spacious enough to avoid leaning your feet against the footboard and to have sufficient space for the pillow. Usually, trundle beds have two bunks providing a pretty large sleeping surface. But there are extraordinary bed constructions that have several bunks. Some trundle beds come with a mattress but normally you should buy it separately. Owing to the wide range of mattress sizes and styles, pay close attention to the main purpose of the trundle bed you select. Full, Queen, Eastern King and California King mattresses can easily accommodate several persons. However, a standard Twin mattress is enough for a comfortable kid's sleeping space.

Extra comfort

Initially, this piece of furniture is intended to bring comfort. Thus, when seeking a trundle bed, check for its additional functional options. It is noteworthy that some models come with drawers for storing linens, clothes, kid's toys, and any other stuff. It is both a convenient and functional design solution that allows you to save even more space. A ladder is an important component of any trundle bed with a top bunk because it provides convenient access to the top. Also, you should remember about bed heads and side arms that bring additional comfort. And the last but not least thing to consider is the frame lining. Upholstery allows you to combine your trundle bed with other furniture and gives it a distinctive, stylish look. Particularly it concerns daybeds with a trundle that can be used as simple couches during the day.
