The bookshelf is on the end of the bed with two large shelves with plenty of room for your child’s books and/or whatever else you both decide to fill that space with. The dresser has three roomy drawers with stylish metal knobs. There is a ladder next to the dresser to allow your child to easily climb up to their twin-size bed and rails around it prevent the risk of your child falling off the bed in their sleep.
One of the really cool features that this bed has is the slide out desk. On the far side of the bed, there is a desk attached to the bed. The desk has wheels on the bottom of it that allow it to freely roll out from underneath the bed and back again. When the desk is fully rolled out, there is plenty of room for a desk chair underneath it to allow your child to comfortably sit there and do their homework, artwork, computer work, or whatever else they may need the desk for.

There is a wide variety of different character options so you are sure to be able to find your child’s favorite character.

One of the very fun things about this bed is the under-loft tent. It has a super fun design where the entire area underneath the bed is encased in the fabric that creates the tent. The tent extends out next to the slide to create a very roomy play area underneath the bed. There are multiple different windows on the tent that roll up to reveal mesh that allows your child to see outside of the tent and lets some light in as well. Just like a typical camping tent, this tent has a door that zippers open and shut. The tent is made of a camouflage fabric.

An extra fun tent kit is included with this awesome set of bunk beds. The tent kit closes most of the openings on the bed to close it in a little more similar to a tent.

What We Like
Combines two pieces of furniture into one- saving both space and money.
Has a traditional style, able to compliment most decors.
The metal construction makes it very durable and long-lasting.
Rolling trundle adds sleep space for a second person without the need for a larger or secondary bed.
Rolling feature of the trundle makes it more convenient and easy to use.
Locking casters secure the trundle for stability and safety.
Can be constructed without trundle and serve as a traditional daybed.
Easy to construct- usually able to be completed in around an hour.
Sturdy design means that once it is constructed it will never need adjusting.
All tools necessary for assembly are included.
Trundle only accommodates twin size mattresses up to 6” thick. Using a mattress thicker than 6” will result in the trundle having a tight fit under the bed rather than the free-rolling fit it is designed to have for convenience and ease.
All metal design creates a heavy piece of furniture which will require effort to reposition.
Roll out trundle creates a lower sleeping space- ideal for siblings, but less ideal for use in a guest bedroom if entertaining a couple.
With a bottom clearance of 1inches, the DHP Victoria Metal Daybed is well designed to accommodate a trundle. While a trundle is not included, DHP offers a separate trundle designed to work with any DHP daybed.
The DHP trundle is a metal frame on four locking casters, providing both security and convenience. Simply roll the trundle out at night to add sleeping space for an additional person, and roll it back under the daybed to free up valuable floor space during the day.

Xl twin size accommodates taller guests
Upholstered daybeds offer a look that is both stylish and inviting. These daybeds bring a touch of coziness to any space.
Choosing the Right Daybed Mattress
Most daybeds are designed to accommodate a standard twin size mattress. There are several exceptions to this rule, however. The most common exception to the twin size is the XL twin size mattress.
These daybeds are a versatile choice since they will also take a standard twin size mattress and allow extra space for tucking in daybed coverlet. It is vitally important that you know the size mattress your daybed is designed to take- especially with regard to the trundle.
While almost all trundles are designed to take a standard twin size mattress, the danger is in buying a mattress too thick for the trundle. The maximum thickness that most trundles will accommodate is inches. Any thicker, and you will have issues in moving the trundle into and out of position.
Why You Should Own a Daybed
Daybeds are one of the most versatile, multi-function pieces of furniture you can buy. Serving as a bed by night and a daybed sofa by day, it really is two pieces of furniture in one.
This two-in-one quality makes a daybed the perfect piece of furniture for a small room where two pieces of furniture would not fit. The two main rooms where a daybed is an ideal choice is the guestroom and a child’s room.
A daybed provides seating space and sleeping space in a very small footprint. The compactness of a daybed means that you can get full use out of even the smallest of rooms in your house.
Furthermore, a daybed is a far more elegant alternative to the all too common air mattress that is used for guests spending the night.
Additionally, designed to last many years of daily use, a daybed will outlast an air mattress many times over. This means that as well as being a more elegant alternative, a daybed is also a more cost effective option to an air mattress.
One of the greatest challenges with children’s furniture is finding a style that they can enjoy when they are young, but not outgrow down the road.
Daybeds offer a durability and style that are guaranteed to endure the ever growing, ever changing needs of any child. The multi-function role of a daybed is not lost in the child’s room either.
Indeed, as most children’s rooms are smaller and often oddly shaped, a single piece of furniture that can serve multiple roles is the perfect way to make that space work.
With both metal and wood frames, and styles that are masculine or feminine, the right choice daybed will bring style and comfort to any children’s room décor.
Popular Brands to Consider
Just like with any other purchase you make, one of the most important things to consider when choosing a daybed is the brand.
Some brands offer strong, stylish daybeds capable of standing up to any demands. Others, however, offer less expensive options which may not be as reliable for more intense use, such as in a children’s room.
Other variables that can make one brand more attractive than another include warranty, shipping, customer service and of course price.
Here is a list of of the most common brands of daybed, with a comparison of these variables in an attempt to show which brand is the best fit for you.
Coaster Home Furnishings
Like with any piece of furniture, it is always best if you can see the piece in person before deciding what to buy. That said, once you have chosen the daybed you want, any online retailer will usually offer any daybed from any brand.

Signs You Need a New Mattress
It can be easy to stick with the same mattress for years upon years without noticing that it may be time to trade it in.
If you are worried that your current mattress’ lifespan may be coming to an end, but aren’t quite sure, here are a few things to look out for.
Open Coil Spring Mattress
Open coil spring mattresses are a good, reliable choice that will do exactly what it says on the tin. They have a consistent degree of firmness which is great for spinal alignment, and come at an easily affordable price.
In saying this, I would keep in mind that open coil mattresses aren’t as effective as other models when it comes to alleviating joint pain, particularly lower back pain.
Before thinking about the size of the bed, you should think about your room. Measure the height, width, length of the room to get an appropriate measurement of the room. Again, in which side you will place it, you have to fix it before getting it.
If you bring a bed which takes most of the floor space of your small room or if you buy such a bed which stays dangerously close to your ceiling surface, then it will come in no use. So measuring every angle of the room is mandatory. After getting the result, you should go for choosing the style or size of the bed.
The size of the bunk
The height of the bunks usually stays between to feet. So choose the suitable height among them. These beds are available in many standard sizes. Twin-over-twin, it is the most standard size. In this bed, a twin sized bed is stacked above another twin sized bed.
In the market, you will get some more sizes’ bedstead. Like: full-over-full or twin-over-full type or bunk beds with desk underneath. They are also popular and they can accommodate more than people at a time. If you want to go for some unique sizes, then we can suggest you trundle, L-shaped and loft type bunk beds.
The height of the rails
The rail of the bunk beds is a very important thing. It saves our kids from falling down the bed. Pick the bunk, which has a good height of rail around the beds. The mattress of the bed can reduce the rail’s height. So use only the mattresses which are inches thick. It is very helpful to get safety level of rail.
Give importance to the color choice of the users. If your kids are going to use it, then take their opinions from them. If you find that their choices is logical, and then go for it. If you are clear about the color selection, next check its finishing quality. The wood’s body should be sanded, smooth and polished well.
If the bunk has drawers, then check its sliding performance, which is smooth or not. Many people think that these things are not such a big thing to consider. But it is not true. You have to consider them seriously like you are doing for the major factors.
Matter of Cost
Now come to the last part “cost”. People always like to do a great deal. But many of us often do not like to spend a good amount of money for getting a good one. They like to go for the cheap price’s products. But honestly, these products are too risky and money wasting items. They have no longevity and they may decay and break down anytime. Always pick the products which are durable, strong and have a well past report.
Transitional style with clean lines and traditional touches gives this particular Daybed a truly chameleon piece able to snugly fit many decors. Beautiful and functional its hardwood construction…
Functionality is one of the most important factors to consider when choosing a full-size daybed with trundle. It is good to ensure that the bed you choose is suitable to suit different uses but as one unit. Some of the ways in which you can use a daybed include turning it into a sofa, a chaise lounge, a guestroom bed, or even as a regular bed for children to sleep on. A versatile daybed is, therefore, appropriate because it can fit comfortably in any of these settings.
Some daybeds are designed using contemporary designs while others have a traditional look. Some are simple, while others are elegant with intricate carvings and decorations. The daybed that you choose should complement the décor in the rest of your home.
Daybed: 77” L x 41” W x 17”H. Trundle : 72″ L x: 39″ W.
