colorful children's bedroom with trundle

While trundle beds can be used in any bedroom, they’re especially great for children’s rooms. First, kids are the most likely to have friends stay the night, and these bed frames are the perfect solution for frequent sleepovers. Second, kids who share their room with a sibling may desire more available square footage, and trundles can be a great space-saving solution. Third, these beds are often twin-sized (though some can be larger), which is the ideal size for most children. Finally, if your child needs more storage space, the bottom portion of the bed frame could be used to hold toys, clothes, or other items when the extra mattress isn’t occupied.

If you’re wondering what a trundle is, it’s basically any bed with a stored mattress underneath, which can be pulled out to provide a second place to sleep. The following options are great for kids’ bedrooms, but the prices do not include mattresses, which would have to be purchased separately.

1. Fun design
