Ok So How Do Rollaway Beds Compare To Trundle Beds?
That brings us to the trundle bed, these beds have been around for hundreds of years. A trundle is a bed within a bed as the large bed sits above a smaller one that has casters and can rolled and stored away underneath the larger one.
This type of bed was very convenient years ago, as the master of the house would sleep on the larger bed and the servant on the smaller one. Thus the servant was instantly available should his master need something in the middle of the night. Then in the morning it could be stored away.
The trundle bed is an excellent choice for a small room or even a child’s room. The extra bed is conveniently stored until it’s use is required then easily put away. The bed can also serve a double purpose as storage. If the trundle bed is not needed for an extended period, the mattress may be removed from the bottom bed allowing for a storage area. This is sure to be appreciated in a smaller room.
Children especially like this type of bed as it allows a friend to sleep over even when space is limited. In the morning the smaller bed can be rolled away leaving the space open for play. The trundle is a good idea when space is limited or the room is a little on the small size to fit a full size double or queen bed. As it can easily accommodate two people in a limited area.
So that leaves the choice up to you. Whatever bed best suits your available space and your guests needs will be the right bed, whether it is a trundle bed or rollaway bed.
