What is the difference between a day bed and a trundle bed?
Likewise, people ask, what is the difference between a daybed and a trundle bed?
Daybeds and trundle beds are different, although both can save space. The industry defines a daybed as a bed that you can use for lounging or sleeping. Trundle beds, on the other hand, often look like any other bed -- despite the fact that underneath the main mattress is another mattress that you can pull out.
Likewise, what size mattress fits a trundle bed? A trundle bed is essentially a small bed that fits under another bed; the mattress that fits into a trundle frame is typically a twin mattress size and is no thicker than eight inches.
Subsequently, one may also ask, what is the point of a trundle bed?
Typically, a thinner foam mattress is positioned on the lower bed to make an easy fit under the upper bed. The trundle bed is rolled out via rope handles or handles made of some other material. A trundle bed is ideal for a child's bedroom as it makes it easier for friends who are sleeping over.
Is a trundle bed a good idea?
Because trundle beds feature a smaller second bed with a thinner mattress, they are perfectly suited for children, teens, and overnight guests. However, being close to the ground and less supportive than a traditional mattress, a trundle bed may not be ideal for the elderly or people with back problems.
