If you’re looking for a space saving solution in the bedroom a trundle bed may be a good option for you.

Trundle beds are perfect for smaller homes or for those who have guests to stay. A trundle bed is a bed (usually a single) with space for an additional bed to be stored underneath it. The additional bed can be pulled out alongside the single bed to either make a double bed or to be used as two single beds.

How We Selected

There are plenty of trundle beds on the market. Some would look great in children’s bedrooms or others would work well in guest rooms. Some have additional storage like drawers, which is good if you’re limited for space.

Things To Consider When Buying A Trundle Bed

Style

Which room is it for? Who will be sleeping in it? If you are getting a trundle bed for a spare room a simple divan would work well. If its for the kids room, a smaller trundle bed could be the best option and if you are limited for storage space, some even come with built in drawers.

There are plenty of options when it comes to style, from wooden frames to ornate metal frames so choose one which suits your taste.

Cost

Trundle beds vary in price. If you are on a limited budget or don’t want to spend too much you should be able to pick one up from around the £250 mark. Or if you fancy splashing out and getting something more luxurious there are really nice trundle beds for up to £1000.

Assembly

Many trundle beds need to be assembled before use. While some can be put together quickly and easily others may be more tricky.

FAQ’s Trundle Beds

They are a good option as a guest bed or for kids, but they are not really ideal for everyday use for adults.

What is the difference between a trundle bed and a daybed?
