Designed originally to ensure that helpers and servants stay close to the owners, trundle beds have come a long way since and are fast becoming as popular as bunk beds for homes where kids need to share a bedroom.

Smart, savvy and ideal for sleepovers, they are perfect for every contemporary home.

The obvious advantage of using a trundle bed in your kid’s bedroom is the space-saving option that you have readily available at all times. This makes the trundle bed ideal for small bedroom designs that are constantly pressed for space. You have an easily available second sleeping bunker that vanishes away during day time and hence saves up on ample foot room. Since space is such a premium in big city lofts and modern apartments, trundle beds in kids’ bedroom present an ideal solution.

While most home owners believe that trundle beds are ideal for bedroom designs that need to accommodate more than one kid, the fact is they are perfect even for homes where there is only a single child. The lower bunk can always be used as a storage option that can simply hide away all the mess and provides for shelf space that is both elegant and compact.

The trundle bed can quickly and effortlessly double up as both a second bed for sleepovers and also as a storage space without any trouble.
