Whether you want to save space or find alternatives for hosting your guests overnight, a trundle daybed is one option worth considering. It's versatile, can be used in either your living room or bedroom, and is available in plenty of designs and styles. It's also quick and easy to transform and a great option for those who may lack space but love having friends and family over.
How does a trundle daybed work?
A trundle daybed will usually have two sections: an upper space that acts as a daybed and a lower section that rolls or slides out underneath. While a twin daybed is the most common size, there are some options able to fit a full-, double-, or even queen-size mattress on top.

If you've been on the hunt for some time, you may have already asked yourself about the difference between a sleeper sofa and a trundle daybed. While a sleeper sofa can act as both a sofa and a bed, it can't serve both purposes simultaneously. On the other hand, a trundle daybed not only doubles the options but doubles the space. It's also ideal for those who don't necessarily want the look or feel of a sofa in their bedroom, guest room, or home office.
