No matter the size of your house, you can have space for guests with a single trundle bed. A great option for small homes and apartments, it is a single bed with a bed underneath. The bottom bed is on wheels so that it can roll out quickly when needed.
Some sofa beds are available with a trundle mattress underneath. These are good options for guest bedrooms or lounge rooms.
Similar to standard bed frames, most single trundle beds are constructed using metal, wood or laminated MDF. All of these materials are quite durable so choosing a frame will depend on your personal taste or the style of the room.
Be aware that while the materials may be durable, the bed could be flimsy or poorly put together depending on the craftsmanship of the frame. As a trundle bed has moving parts, checking the quality of the fixings and the quality of the frame is important.
There are two types of mattresses available. They are innerspring and memory foam. Innerspring mattresses are supportive and comfortable, the upholstered steel spring system gives the bed stability and allows it to breathe.
Memory foam mattresses are made from latex or thick foam which does not breathe. If you live in a hot part of Australia or do not have air conditioning, consider the heat of a memory foam mattress before you purchase.
New or used
Before you buy a used bed, make sure to ask the seller about the frame and mattress quality. As this is a used product, make sure that the seller provides photos of wear and tear. If you're buying a new trundle bed, check online reviews for extra information.
