Plans to Build Trundle Beds

This arrangement has been around since ancient times as well. Originally referred to in Old English as a "truckle bed", the trundle is actually any small bed on wheels that usually fits beneath a taller bed. The trundle can be stowed away when unoccupied and made ready for use at a moment’s notice. With the mattress removed, the bed can double as a large drawer for storage of bedding, luggage, off-season clothing, children's train sets or any item that fits. Trundle beds are a great alternative to a bunk bed. Our trundle bed plans show how to build trundle beds that utilizes common easy to find materials and standard twin mattresses.
