A trundle bed is made up of two beds where one bed can be packed under the other so that the beds take up the space of only one bed. The second bed
can be tucked under the first when not in use. The trundle bed functionality adds an extra bed to sleep in at night without a second bed taking up
space during the day. Since the second bed is stored underneath the main bed, the height of the bed is typically the same as a normal bed, contrary
to a bunk bed. Trundle beds are perfect for children rooms or rooms where frequent overnight guests stay. Trundle beds are best for kids because
typically the bed that goes underneath will require a thinner mattress which would not be comfortable for a grown adult. Trundle beds help save space
in secondary bedrooms where an extra sleeping area might be needed. As mentioned, the mattress size for the secondary bed might need to be thinner
so it is important to view the listed dimensions for the trundle bed you choose.
Twin Trundle Bed: Twin size trundle beds are the most common type. The second bed slides under the first when not in use. Trundle beds are made so
that the second bed slides in and out easily. As a result, younger children can safely pull the in and out without help from adults. Twin trundle
beds are most common because they provide the most value while taking up the least space. In general, it can sleep two children on a regular basis
or overnight guests, while only taking up the space of one twin bed. You will also need to consider the type of finish since this can be looked at
as a piece of furniture. Finishes such as white, black, espresso, and brown are just a few of the ones available. It is also worth noting you can
buy twin trundle beds with extra storage drawers. These can be great for extra clothes, blankets, or toys.
Full Size Trundle Bed: Full size trundle beds usually come with full size bed and a twin trundle bed. These are great for pre-teen or teenagers
since they are likely growing out of a twin bed, so the full size trundle bed allows for much more space for them to sleep comfortably. That said,
there is also a twin trundle bed that slides out which is great for sleepovers. You can also choose various finishes such as black and espresso.
Similar to a twin size, you can find full size trundle beds that have additional storage options for extra clothes or sheets.
