They are somewhat smaller in size than the top bed and are stored beneath the upper bedframe. Given the room to pull out the trundle, daybed with trundle bed works as a good option for a room with limited space which is needed during the day such as the guest room or in the office if you decide to doze off there itself due to work load.
