How to choose a trundle bed in 4 easy steps?

Are you planning to fit out your bedroom with a trundle bed and don't know which model to choose? Don't panic, we've put together a quick 4-step buying guide to help you choose the space-saving bed that best suits your needs.

What is a trundle bed?

A trundle bed, also known as a bench bed, is a versatile type of bed that includes a second sleeping area that fits underneath the first. Designed to save space, this type of bed offers a practical solution for bedrooms where space is limited.

Whether for everyday or occasional use, there are a variety of models on the market to meet your specific needs. In this article, we'll look at the different criteria to consider when choosing a trundle bed, as well as a detailed look at some of our most popular models.

Selection criteria

  • Size

The first consideration when choosing a trundle bed is size. Trundle beds are available in a range of sizes to suit young and old alike. Common sizes include the 90x190 trundle bed, the 90x200 trundle bed and the 80x190 trundle bed.

  • Materials

The materials used to make a trundle bed play an essential role in its durability, aesthetics and comfort. Solid wood frames often offer superior strength and longevity, while metal frames can be lighter. Wooden slatted bases provide good ventilation and balanced support, while sprung bases can offer firmer comfort. We advise you to choose quality materials that match your personal comfort preferences and ensure the long-term durability of your trundle bed.

  • Use

Determine the main use of the trundle bed. Will it be used as the main bed or as an extra bed for guests? Some trundle beds are designed for everyday use, while others are more suitable for occasional use.

  • Additional features

Some trundle beds come with extra features to maximise the use of space. These may include built-in storage drawers, a headboard, armrests or the ability to convert the bed into a double bed.

Why choose a trundle bed from ABC Meubles?

  • Identical sleeping heights

With the exception of the Maxi model, the main sleeping surface and the additional sleeping surface of our trundle beds are at the same height (once the drawer bed is unfolded and if you use mattresses of the same height). This feature makes it possible to create a 2-seater trundle bed when the two beds are used together.

  • Quality materials

Our trundle beds are made from solid pine from controlled Landes forests. This high-quality material guarantees a solid, hard-wearing structure, ensuring long-term use without compromising on quality. What's more, our hardware is produced by a French company, offering quality parts.

  • Eco-friendly varnish

Because we care about the environment and our customers' health, we use a water-based varnish without solvents or VOCs for our furniture, including our trundle beds. This approach means our furniture can be used safely by the whole family while minimising the impact on the ecosystem.

  • High load capacity

Each bed in our trundle beds can support a weight of up to 120kg. This capacity guarantees solid, reliable support, providing a comfortable, carefree sleep for users of all sizes, as well as the most restless.
