What is a Trundle Bed?

A trundle bed is a regular type bed that includes a roll out mattress underneath it.  They are a very valuable piece of bedroom furniture because they allow for the sleeping space of two beds while only taking up the space of one bed.  

These are popular choices for people who expect to have frequent overnight guests.  Whenever they have no company the convenient mattress stays tucked away, completely out of the way.  But when company arrives it is easily pulled out and converted into a very comfortable sleeping place.

A Trundle Can Come in Many Styles, Designs, and Colors.  The most prominent is the twin size, but it is not uncommon to find full size, bunk beds or even loft beds that have a trundle option.  Some are built into the frame in the form of a drawer.  These are nice because they conceal the mattress completely whenever it is pushed in.  To the outside observer they would conclude that you had a captains bed and that you just had drawers underneath.  By removing the mattress this can be an option, allowing a person to use the space as extra storage. Others are simply metal frames with rollers.  These do not conceal the mattress as well as the former type, but this problem can easily be remedied with the use of a bed skirt.  

What makes a trundle bed so great for kids is that it gives them a place for their friends to sleep when they invite them over to spend the night. Sleepovers are great fun and create memories that will last for years and years to come.  Having a special place for your child's friend to stay without taking up much need space is a great idea.  Below are some of the different styles and designs I have found.  Explore the possibilities and find out which type would work best for you and your kid.
