Growing up, I slept on a twin-sized iron daybed with a roll-out, pop-up trundle. While I often begrudged it because my bedding options were much more limited (the amount of awful granny-looking bed-in-a-bags my mom and I had to shuffle through to land on anything that felt age-appropriate still haunts me), it was sleepover headquarters at my house. Having a trundle meant I had a built-in guest bed and none of my friends ever had to bring over a sleeping bag (or cram into my tiny twin with me). Now, as an adult, I can also see their value not just for a kid or teen’s bedroom, but as a fantastic small-space solution for studios and guests rooms. No matter your needs, chances are a trundle bed is a piece you’ll find good use for. From traditional wrought iron picks to luxe upholstered beds, we scoured our favorite retailers and rounded up 10 of the best trundle beds on the market today.
