Trundle beds for kids are an absolute must if you have more than one kid sharing a single bedroom. It means investing in space saving features and furniture that can be used by more than one kid at the same time. People opt for kids bunk beds. But I personally feel trundle beds are a better option. Of course, they need horizontal floor space when expanded. However, a bed with trundle can work wonders and find favor with your kids when used in correct places.

All About Trundle Beds For Kids
What are Trundle Beds?
Trundle beds have multiple platforms or trundles, one below the other. Each platform has a mattress. The lower platforms open by sliding out under the top platform. You can have two or even three platforms in a trundle bed. The lower platforms have retractable legs that can be positioned properly when it has been pulled out. Trundle beds are usually box beds with a wooden frame. These beds do not have box springs. You also get these beds in lightweight and durable metal frames that are easy to clean. Some beds come equipped with wheels, rollers or casters. Always go in for trundle beds that can be assembled and moved easily.
Types of Kids Trundle Beds
Simple Trundle Beds
The simplest form of a trundle bed is a basic bed frame on wheels that slides under the main bed. The occupant may feel very close to the floor.
Drawer Trundle Beds
In this type, the main bed will have a drawer underneath. This can be pulled out, serving as a trundle bed.
Pop Up Trundle Beds
This type of trundle bed is ideal for those who wish to sleep at the same height. The lower trundle bed is first pulled out from under the main bed and then propped up to the same height as the main bed. This is done with springs or metal stands.
Advantages Of Trundle Beds For Kids
They require lesser space than conventional beds. You can have two or even three trundle beds in a single box, in your room for two to three kids. During the day, all the beds are locked inside, ensuring maximum play area in the kids bedroom.
Safe For Kids
The kids are safe, closer to the floor as against kids bunk beds. This makes it easier to get down at night, to go to the bathroom or to drink water.
Trundle Beds can act as daybeds. Ideal for smaller homes and apartments. In case your kids’ friends come visiting during the day to play or for a kiddo party, you could pull out one of the extra lower beds, cover it with an attractive top sheet and throw in some cushions. This gives extra seating space for kids during the day. In case you have unexpected guests or if any kids come for sleepovers, you can put these to good use. Kids trundle beds with drawers also provide extra storage for cushions, toys etc.
Easy To Clean
Mattresses that come with trundle beds are usually light weight and easy to clean. The lower bed mattresses can be easily covered with simple plastic sheets for dust protection, when you slide or roll them back in, when not in use. Kids trundle beds need cleaning just like any other conventional bed. You can vaccum and dust the mattresses and wipe the bed frames. This is much easier as compared to a bunk bed. Are bunk beds safe? I don’t think so.
You can easily move a trundle bed from one area to another. This is very useful when cleaning your kids bedroom.
