•    Wooden trundle beds

Wood is commonly used in the manufacturing of trundle bed frames. In case you are interested in day bed style, you must look for the style that has a high back.

Different types of woods are used in the constructions of these beds. Usually hardwood is considered to be better than softwoods. However they make the bed expensive. The most popular woods used in the manufacturing include oak, maple, mahogany, beech and pine.

•    Metal trundle beds

There are some manufacturers that use metal frames in the construction of trundle beds while some use a fine combination of wood and metal. For instance, you may find a frame having a wooden platform but with metal posts. Such frames are less expensive than the wooden ones and are also preferred.
