A trundle bed is a type of bed that is built on casters so that it can be slid underneath another bed or piece of furniture. Usually, it’s sold along with the main bed as part of a set, to ensure that the trundle portion will fit underneath and be properly supported. This setup can be an excellent space saving solution as well as a convenient way to have a guest bed available when needed, but out of the way when it’s not. If you want to purchase a trundle bed, you should know that the price of the trundle depends on several things. While the material used for the trundle bed will have an effect on the price, so will the style. A simple metal trundle bed frame that slides out from underneath will be much less expensive than a furniture quality wooden trundle bed frame that slides out and then up, so that it is at the same level as the existing bed. This does not mean that the wooden bed frame is the best for every situation, but it is something to consider.
For a trundle bed that is not used on a regular basis, and is normally used by a child, the metal frame will be a good choice. A trundle that is used on a regular basis, one that will be used by adults, or for those wanting to make it possible for visiting couples to share a bed, would work best with a trundle bed that slides out and up to the level of the existing bed. After all, trundle beds can be a good choice for you because they are strong, sturdy, durable, and made of quality materials.
