SPACE SAVER BEDS
When it comes to beds for children, tweens, teens, or spare rooms, things can get a little confusing. We frequently hear questions like:
How old should a child be to have a bunk bed? The "Rule of Thumb" is 1st Grade. Around this age, they have gotten over their sleep walking and "night terrors" so they are less likely to walk off the top bed or slip down the ladder.
What is the most comfortable style bed? Any style that uses a standard mattress. Since there are so many more comfort levels and qualities to choose from, we offer a large selection and you can usually find the best comfort that fits you.
Can I put a trundle under my current bed? Probably not. The trundle must have clearance the full length of the bed. Since most beds have legs recessed in from the ends of the head and foot, the trundle will not slide under the bed. Also, most bed frames do not have enough clearance between the floor and the frame.
What size is a daybed? Trundle bed? Our daybeds, trundles, bunk beds, Captain's beds, are standard Twin size.
What is the difference between a daybed and a trundle bed? Daybeds typically are considered as a bed that is placed with their long side against a wall, have decorative ends and back, and can be used as a lounge.
A trundle typically refers to an extra bed that can fit under another bed and be pulled out for extra sleeping area when required. They may be a decorative drawer style or a more utilitarian metal style (either "roll out" or "high rise" type).
