Building platform bed with trundle is a fairly simple process. Choose how high off ground platform likes it, and use either 2-by-4s (by a 3-1 / 2-inch lift) or 2 6s (for 5-1 / 2-inch lift). Standard mattress dimensions are: double / single: 39 x 75 cm; full / double: 54 x 75 cm; always double: 39 x 80 inches (used by most college dorms); queen size: 60 x 80 cm; king size: 76 x 80 inches and California king: 72 x 84 inches.
