A guide to buying daybeds with trundle

Daybeds can make a great design choice since they are very versatile pieces of furniture. Some daybeds really look like beds and can be nice in a bedroom. Other daybeds can be made to look either like beds or sofas and can work well in a guest room, multi-purpose room or even a living room where people want a deeper space to stretch out than a sofa or where the room might have to be used one day for guests. A trundle is an even nicer feature for a daybed. Read on to learn more

Why choose a trundle?

A trundle provides an extra sleeping space in the event that more guests show up than their are beds for. Trundles are also especially nice for kids' rooms for sleepovers. When buying a daybed with a trundle, you should do a little research to make sure you are happy with your purchase, regardless of what room you are putting the bed in or why you decided to buy. Size and comfort In the vast majority of cases, both the daybed and the trundle that slides under it are twin beds. This makes sense since the beds are smaller and are meant to look more like sofas and less like beds during the day. The trundle fits under the main bed in most cases, so it too must be a twin. You should be aware of this sizing restriction when you head out to go shopping as you may have a hard time finding anything other than a single day bed. Test the beds You should also make sure when looking for day beds for sale that you are testing them out for comfort. Not all daybeds for sale are created equal and you want one which is going to have the most comfortable daybed mattress possible for your guests.

How the trundle works

The other important feature when shopping for daybeds with trundle is the way in which the trundle works. Some trundles are just on castors and will roll out and the person sleeping on the daybed will be close to the floor. In other cases, a pop up trundle is provided, which allows for the trundle to actually come to a higher height when rolled out of storage. This may be a better and more comfortable option for some guests and you should consider whether your guests would be in favour of the higher bed.
