Nothing captures the joy of summer quite like a barbecue—family, friends, music, a cold beverage, and cooking in the great outdoors. It’s the perfect way to celebrate all of our summer holidays and events—from Mother’s Day and Father’s Day to graduations and weddings—barbecues work for all occasions. This year, for the first time, Smitty’s has partnered with Broil King to offer you some of the best barbecue options on the market. No matter what your preference is—gas, charcoal, or pellet—we’ve got something to make your summer nights extra special.

 

Gas

Gas grills are an easy, no fuss no muss solution to grilling. If you are a novice griller or if convenience is your priority, gas might be the right choice for you. Gas gives you easy control over temperature which is essential to good grilling. Broil King’s gas grills offer flexible and even heat distribution thanks to their Dual-Tube burners. Every Broil King gas grill comes with three to five Dual-Tube burners and every burner has 240 heating ports—that means you have flexibility and control over your grill’s temperature. You can easily adjust up or down for different types of meats, cuts, and veggies. All Broil King gas grills come with their Flav-R-Wave heat distributor, a waved stainless steel insert that is placed over your grill’s burners. As soon as the juices from your meat hit the Flav-R-Wave they evaporate and infuse back into your meat to enhance that mouthwatering bbq flavor. And this year, for the first time, Broil King has introduced the infrared side burner that provides an intense direct heat that is perfect for searing. You’ll get a crispy golden-brown crust on the outside while your meat stays tender and juicy on the inside. The infrared side burner gives you the heat of a charcoal grill without the extra work and mess, so you really can’t go wrong.

The Baron 490 Pro can be fitted for propane tanks or a natural gas line.

 

Charcoal

Charcoal grills are the classic option. For the griller who wants to go old-school, some might say it’s a barbecue for purists. The main advantage to a charcoal grill is the heat, charcoal burns hotter than gas so it is perfect for high heat searing or low and slow cooking. We’re excited about the Broil King Keg, a Kamado-style grill made from steel rather than porcelain which means it’s lighter and less cumbersome to move around than a traditional Kamado grill. Constructed from two layers of baked enamel steel with oven-grade insulation in between, the Keg holds extremely high temperatures inside while staying cool to the touch on the outside. No need to worry about your fingers or your little ones’. The Keg comes with a mount for your trailer hitch so you can take it tailgating, camping, or for a day by the lake. Sounds pretty perfect.

The Broil King Keg produces that smoked-char-broiled barbecue flavor that we love.

 

Pellets 

Pellet grills are fueled by tiny hardwood pellets that cook food much like a convection oven. The smoke from the pellets infuses into your food to give it that extra delicious smoked flavor. Broil King’s pellet grills automatically feed pellets into the fire chamber so you maintain precise heat control while you cook. The pellet grill is versatile and hassle-free. You can wow your family with roasted fish on Friday, seared steaks on Saturday, and smoked ribs on Sunday. And now, with Broil King’s Pellet Grill app, you can monitor the temperature of your meat and regulate the temperature of your grill with your smartphone from literally anywhere in the world—or, from the grocery down the street. If you like high-tech toys, enjoy the low and slow experience, and are looking for a tank of a grill, Broil King’s Regal Pellet Smoker might just be your dream come true.

The design of Broil King’s Regal Pellet 500 Pro is based on a traditional barrel smoker.

 

Like Smitty’s, Broil King is a Canadian family-owned and run business and they’ve been around longer than us! Their grills are built for performance, durability, and great flavour. We trust Broil Kings and use them in our own backyards. If you have questions about our Broil King grills, contact us or visit one of our showrooms, we are happy to help.

The past year has been a strange one and not always easy, but there have been some bright spots. One is that many of us have had more time to spend with our loved ones—we’ve been working and studying side by side, we’ve been cooking and sharing more meals, we’ve even been playing more board games. A lot of this time together has been spent around the dining room table, so we think they deserve some attention. If you are considering a dining room do-over, here are some tips to help you get started.

 

The Perfect Fit

What size table is right for your home? First thing’s first: get your measuring tape, you’ll need the dimensions of your dining area. You’ll want to leave 42 to 48 inches between the edge of your table and the wall or other furniture. This ensures enough space for chairs to move in and out from the table and leaves room for people to pass while others are seated. Next, consider the size of your family—how many people will be sitting around the table on a daily basis? To sit comfortably and avoid knocking elbows, the general rule of thumb is to allow between 18 and 24 inches per place setting. If you do a lot of hosting but space is limited, consider a table with an extension leaf. You can easily turn a four top into an eight top with an extension leaf that will tuck away into the table when you’re not using it. To give yourself more flexibility in a smaller area like a kitchen, consider a drop-leaf table.

 

Bermex Expressions Dining Suite

This gorgeous Bermex Expression Dining Suite comes with an extension leaf that stores away in the table. It’s made from premium select North American Birch and is completely customizable.

 

The Right Shape

Square, rectangle, round, or oval—how do you know what shape is right for your home? The answer is symmetry. The most visually pleasing and comfortable dining area will have the same amount of space all around the table. So take a look at the shape of your dining area. If it’s a square space, your best bet is a square or round table, while a rectangle or oval is best suited to a rectangular dining room. Your next consideration should be corners—do you want them? Corners take up additional space so if your dining room is on the smaller side, consider an oval or round table. Oval and round tables also allow you to squeeze in an extra seat or two without leaving anyone stuck in that awkward corner spot. 

 

Amisco Norcross Dining Set

The Amisco Norcross dining suite is inspired by a no-nonsense vintage industrial look and is available in dining, counter, and pub heights. It’s a stylish choice for a smaller dining space such as a kitchen.

 

Impeccable Style

Style is a personal choice and we want you to do you. But we can offer some guidelines to help you make the right choice for your home. The most important piece of advice we have is to keep it classy. We recommend avoiding trends that might look out of date in a few years. A quality dining table should last a good 10 years and minimal design will allow you to roll with the times. When considering style, look at how your new dining table might compliment the rest of your decor and think about diversifying. For example, if you have a lot of wood in your home, you might want to bring a new element into the space, perhaps a glass or marble tabletop or a metal base or legs. In terms of seating, think about mixing and matching—at a rectangular table, consider chairs around three sides of the table and a bench along the fourth. If you choose upholstered seats, select colors that will complement the decor in the rest of your home. Remember patterns can vary as long as you stay within the same color palette. Canadian furniture manufacturers Amisco and Bermex specialize in furniture for your dining room, both companies offer customizable options so you can choose the right style for your home.

 

Bermex Live Edge Table

We love this Bermex Live Edge dining suite - it’s farmhouse chic with a trestle base and mix and match seating.

 

At Smitty’s we love home furnishings and decor and are happy to offer free consultations. Contact us for an appointment with one of our certified home decorators to discuss your ideas and options.

At Smitty's Fine Furniture, we believe in providing our customers with products made with quality, Canadian craftsmanship. When you visit our showrooms, you can expect to receive an excellent level of customer service. After all, shopping for Canadian-made furniture should be a content and exciting experience.


Whether it's sofas or bedroom furniture, we make it a priority to sell items that are made in Canada. Here are 5 reasons why you should shop Canadian:


1. Canadian Furniture Manufacturers Can Produce Custom Orders, With Fewer Delays


Some people want a distinct and unique furniture item in their home. Custom orders allow you to change the colour, fabric or finish on a variety of items. By choosing a local company, you don't have to worry as much about long wait times or shipping delays. Custom orders can be created and delivered all without crossing the border. And some of our manufacturers are just a few kilometers from our showrooms, like Durham Furniture.


2. Canadian Designers Know Canadian Homes


Design trends vary from country to country. For example, while some houses overseas don't have basements, it's quite common in Canada to utilize that space as a recreational area. Canadian designers understand Canadian furniture needs and they create products accordingly.


3. Canadian Furniture Is Made To Last


When it comes to quality, locally-made furniture is some of the most durable on the market. Manufacturers in Canada have access to heavy-duty wood. In turn, the wood furniture available here is not only a high standard and great design, but it also has long livability. Furniture is an investment, so it is best to buy products that are made to last.


4. Canadian Manufacturing Considers Environmental Factors


A great way to reduce your carbon footprint and make a positive impact on the environment is to shop locally. The standards in Canada restrict the use of toxic chemicals that are known to have an effect on you and the planet.


5. Supports The Canadian Economy


We believe in helping our communities. By supporting your local economy, you can actually help create jobs and opportunities in various different industries. Currently, there are over 100,000 people employed by the Canadian furniture industry and that number can continue to grow with your support. Shopping locally also helps to add $15 billion into the national economy. When we support each other, we all benefit from the results.

 

Made In Canada Guidelines
  • This means the final finishing and construction of goods are completed by Canadian manufacturers.
  • At least 51% of the total costs of producing goods have been incurred in Canada.
  • The “Made in Canada” representation means the product usually includes imported parts.

Smitty's Fine Furniture offers an impressive range of Canadian furniture available both in-store and online. We pride ourselves on providing the best customer service in the industry, so if you have any questions or are looking for more information give us a call or visit our store! We can't wait to help you find the perfect furniture for your home.

Dining rooms have always been one of our favourite spaces here at Smitty's Fine Furniture. So much more than a room just to consume food dining rooms are a place to gather with family and friends, work, or to celebrate special occasions. There are so many ways to decorate these rooms and make them unique for each family. For those special nights, we recommend ditching the kitchen table or kitchen counter and making use of your dining space.

If you are currently shopping for your dining room, our team has created a list of our favourite sets and pieces.

 

 

302 EXPRESSION DINING SUITE by Bermex

 

This oval-shaped dining table and the matching buffet is a modern, yet timeless option.

Bermex products offer high quality and a distinct aesthetic. All tables come from solid wood (not a veneer) that has its own variation and colour, persevering the individuality and uniqueness you want in your home.

When it comes to furnishing and interior design, the first step of any project is measuring the space you have available. When measuring rooms in your home, there are a few tricks to getting accurate measurements that can help you make sure you're choosing the best place to put your new Canadian-made dining table or 5-piece sectional. 

 

You need an accurate measurement to know how your room is going to work. You need to measure your room and be able to feel confident in how much floor space you have for new furnishings.

 

To measure your space for furniture, you'll need a tape measure, paper and something to write with. When dealing with measurements for rooms and furniture, measure in feet.

 

Step 1: Measuring Your Room For Furniture

 

To start, it may help to make a rough bird's-eye view sketch of the shape of your room. Then measure the height of the ceiling. Next, measure the length of each wall in the room and record it on your sketch. Taking note of the ceiling height and width ensures room to be able to maneuver large items. Also, pay attention to where the entrance of the room is and where you'll measure along. Measuring along floorboards tend to be a more solid option for the best, most accurate measurements.

 

Step 2: Accounting For Existing Furniture

 

Take stock of things you're choosing to keep and measure how big those pieces are. Make sure to measure the width, height and diagonal depth of individual pieces like seats. Record how large those pieces are and account for them when you're bringing new furniture into the room. Measure the width and measure the length of your leftover space. You can arrange your decor the way you like it and bring your interior design vision to life.

 

Step 3: Entryway Clearance And Passage Measurements

 

It's important to measure the entryway height of your home before you're able to bring your new piece home so that you can maneuver it easily. By measuring the specific length and width of hallways and doorways and any larger door frames, you ensure a smooth traffic flow when moving your new furniture into your house. You can always move pieces in the room to the far wall when moving in your furniture to give you more length from the entrance.

 

Make sure to leave at least 4 inches of room between furniture and doorways and walls when moving new pieces into your home.


 

Planning Your Room's Space For Furniture With Smitty's

 

Smitty's Room Planner can help you measure entries, spaces and other aspects of your room. After measuring everything you need, input it into our room planner and we can do the rest for you. We account for doorways, windows and light fixtures in our unique program and we use every measurement to help you in furnishing everything from your front door, to back porch.  You bring your knowledge of the depth and width of the room, and we'll bring the furniture to you.

In 2020 our homes became the center of our worlds. It’s where many of us work, where we gather as a family, and where we spend the majority of our days. Form, as they say, follows function, and so design trends for 2021 reflect the new ways in which our homes function in our lives. Now more than ever, home needs to be the place where we want to be. It should feel comfortable, calming, and relaxing – a place to breathe deep and let go. To that end, this year’s home decor trends embrace harmony with nature. From style to materials to color, we are bringing the natural beauty of the outdoors in.

 

Style

In 2021, it’s decorator’s choice, what’s important is that your home reflects you while keeping it comfortable, up-to-date, and modern. This year we are seeing a new kind of minimalism, a definite move away from stark, almost bare interiors to rooms that feel welcoming and cozy yet uncluttered and fresh. Our interiors should be minimal but luxurious. In our living rooms and bedrooms, we love anything that is overstuffed. We want sofas, chairs, and sectionals that invite us to curl up. Think down-filled cushions and rounded edges that lend softness and classic elegance. 

 

 

Brentwood Classic's Marcus sectional embraces this cozy clean aesthetic perfectly. Features such as rounded sofa arms and a pleated slipcover create a timeless and inviting look. Natural materials and fibres such as wood, cotton, wool, stone, and metal are used throughout the room to hint at the outdoors, adding a sense of calm and refinement.

 

Materials

Bringing nature in means incorporating earthy organic materials and textures. We’re thinking of wood, stone, metal, leather, cotton, and wool. These materials are not only on-trend, they are also renewable and recyclable. As interior design catches up with the environmental movement, designers are embracing eco-friendly materials. In addition to the more commonly used natural materials in furniture design, we are also seeing increased use of bamboo, straw, and rattan – all of which grow fast, are plentiful, and incredibly durable. 

 

And this year, don’t be afraid to mix and match. We are thinking a lot about texture and the way different materials can come together to create interesting new looks. Try pairing a woven rattan chair with a white sheepskin throw, add a glass-top side table and woven wool rug and you’ve got a stunning natural look. If luxury and opulence are your preference, try a combination of leather, marble, metal, and a touch of refined crystal.

 

 

Canadian manufacturers such as Palliser give you a wide range of choices when selecting materials for your sofa. This rich brown leather is luxurious and comfortable.

 

Colour 

It’s a known fact that colour affects mood. This year’s colour palette reflects our focus on nature and calm. Neutrals such as, white, cream, and grey and beige tones remain a staple that provide a beautiful natural foundation upon which to build your room’s colour scheme. When adding colour this year, go earthy - muted saturated reds, bright yellows, burnt oranges, olive and mossy greens, and brown tones. These earthy colours will contrast beautifully with your neutrals and will keep the room feeling clean, fresh, and bright.

 

 

Like Palliser, Canadian manufacturer Brentwood Classics gives you a choice of fabrics and colors for your sofa. This mossy green by Brentwood Classics hints at the forest, while the cream-colored throw pillow with black geometric design maintains a modern look.

 

As you head into this new year, consider some of these ideas for freshening up your home. Think about what you can do to make your home the sanctuary that it should be. Our designers at Smitty’s are always happy to help, contact us for a free in-store or virtual consultation

Sometimes accidents happen. Protect your furniture investments with Smitty’s Furniture Extended Protection Plans. Here are four reasons to purchase a plan to protect your furniture:

 

  1. Accidental stains and spills: Over the life of your furniture stains and spills are likely to happen. Smitty’s Extended Protection Plan covers food and beverage stains; human and pet stains; pen, ink, and crayon stains accidents; cosmetic and nail polish mishaps; even newsprint and denim dye transfers on all types of upholstered furniture, from fabric to top grain leather!
  2. Accidental mishaps: Has an accidental burn or fabric rip occurred? Don’t worry! Smitty’s Extended Protection Plan covers these mishaps, too.
  3. Wood Furniture protection: Beautiful wood finishes are worth protecting. Finished wood furniture products under the extended protection plan are protected against stains from common household food and beverages, heat marks, liquid rings, watermarks, and accidental scratches that penetrate the finish. This includes damage from food and beverages that cause warping or lifting of wood veneer. Glass or mirror components are protected against accidental breakage, chipping, and scratches too.  
  4. Peace of mind: When you consider investing in furniture for the long term, a concern usually arises over how to protect it against accidental damage. Unlike manufacturer warranties on components of the furniture, these extended protection plans offer additional coverage that allows you to relax knowing that while accidents do happen, they can be fixed. Smitty’s Extended Protection Plans are for up to five years and so you can focus on enjoying your furniture.  
 
How Does It Work?

If you accidentally spill a glass of wine on your couch, or notice a stain from your pet on your chair,  or cause any other accidental damage mentioned above, you can file a claim with your furniture protection plan within 14 days of the incident. 

 

Be prepared to take pictures of the damage. It might be helpful to also have a few pictures of what your furniture looked like new. This will allow you to get the best outcome. Free professional stain removal or repair advice can be obtained, and a cleaning solution may be delivered to you, or as the situation requires, the furniture may be serviced at your home by a professional technician. If the technician cannot remove the stain or repair the accidental damage, a replacement or exchange may be made.

 

 

Should You Get a Furniture Protection Plan?

If you’ve invested in quality furniture, this type of plan can protect your furniture from any damage. It’s especially a good choice for people with pets or young children, and it can give you enough peace of mind to relax and enjoy the comfort of your furniture. If you need any further information on our protection plans, please reach out to our team. We’re always happy to help you protect your furniture investments.

There’s no doubt that if you work from home you need a dedicated workspace, especially during these unprecedented times that are allowing people to work from home more than ever before. 

 

So, if you’re someone who is working from home long-term, it’s time to get creative with crafting a home office space in your living room. Here are four tips and recommendations to help you create a productive (but appealing) at-home workspace:
 

1. Behind Your Couch

For those whose family rooms have an open floor plan configuration, creating a workstation behind the couch can be a great option. In order to pull this off perfectly, you’ll need to pull your couch some distance from the wall. Apart from giving the whole room a nice facelift, floating furniture can help get rid of the dead space found in the middle of large living rooms. Having your desk behind a floating couch makes better use of the space and brings about a sense of organization to the area.

 

Amisco - Elwood
 

2. Dedicate a Corner of the Room

Setting aside a particular corner of your family room to act as a small workspace is a great way to make a workstation without using up too much space. This works great for people who have small living rooms. Keeping your office space in the periphery will enable you to work without getting in the way of other activities that may be going on simultaneously. In addition, using compact furniture will ensure that the general aesthetic of your living room isn’t ruined or inconsistent.

 

Amisco - Harrison
 

3. Create a Makeshift Cubicle

Create a separate office space in your living room by creating “walls” with your desks.  Creating an L-shaped desk helps to wall off the workspace from the rest of the room in a makeshift cubicle. 

 

Amisco - Rupert 

 

4. Utilize a Room Break

If you have a living room that has a six-inch wall that juts out and divides the room slightly, make use of that break. Place your desk there, and divide the room between “living area” and “work area.” 

Jofran - Carlyle Crossing

 

Your Living Room Is Your Canvas

The COVID-19 pandemic has made remote working the new normal and many people are just now coming to terms with it. The truth of the matter is that many individuals don’t have a spare room to use as a workspace; ergo, repurposing a part of the sitting room is perhaps the best option. Although working from home can be a rather difficult transition, employing the tips provided above will ensure that the change won’t be too hard.

Spending more time indoors isn’t just for us to get warm and cozy. Our furry friends need to get cozy, too! So why not find ways to pet-proof your furniture and snuggle up together? 

Here are five simple (and stylish) tips to start making your furniture pet-friendly so you can get comfortable together without worrying about your belongings getting ruined over the holidays.


 

 
1. Stick To Nylon Rugs

Whether you have dogs or cats, nylon rugs are very durable, stain-resistant, and handle wear and tear better than any other rug material. Nylon fibres are strong and do a good job to resist tears from your pets' clawing. Since they come in a variety of sizes, shapes, patterns and colours, you won't have a hard time choosing a nylon rug that looks great in your home.
 

2. Use Furniture Covers (No, Not Plastic Ones)

Thanks to advancements in modern technology, you don't have to protect your furniture with plastic covers anymore. There are washable, dog-proof slipcovers available that feel comfortable and don't take away from your room's aesthetics. Or, if you'd prefer, throw blankets can do the trick and they're easy to clean since they can just be thrown in the wash.
 

3. Microfiber Couch For Cats

Microfiber is a synthetic fabric that, if you own cats, you'll want to invest in for your living room furniture. Especially if your cat spends a lot of time on your sofa and has a tendency to start scratching or chewing it. Microfiber or microsuede are very durable fabrics that won't pull as easily as the fibres are very tightly woven. They're also less likely to trap dirt, pet hair, stains and odours.
 

4. Buy A New, Cozy Dog Bed

Replace your dog's favourite spot on the couch with a bed specifically for them. Investing in a high-quality doggy bed is a great choice for dogs who shed, and who are still in the young, chewing stage. Plus, there are so many beds to choose from that will match the rest of your furniture and, this way, you don't have to worry about any damage to your favourite piece of furniture.
 

5. Buy A Couch With Removable Seats

If you're not a fan of a washable cover on your furniture, then look for a sofa or a chair with removable cushions that can easily be unzipped and thrown in the wash. This makes it much easier than trying to spot clean stains or even using sprays to mask strong odours.
 

* Extra tips:

  • Cat or dog hair is inevitable, but the best way to hide their fallen fur well is to correlate theirs and your new furniture's colours. If your pets are dark, invest in a darker coloured piece of furniture, and if they have light-coloured fur, invest in light-coloured furniture.
  • If your dog or cat loves to scratch and chew, you may want to put a scratching post or chew toys right next to your furniture to help distract them. Or, put their toys in their bed and train them to know that that is their specific space.

For many homeowners looking to revamp their interior, they automatically think they need to hang pictures on the walls or invest in small decor pieces that change with the seasons. Decorating your living room, bedroom or kitchen can be so much more than that. That's why we'll be discussing how to use accent furniture to help decorate your home, and the five most common questions our interior decorators get asked regarding how to use accent furniture to tie their home together.

 

 

 

1. Where can I place an accent chair?

You can place accent chairs virtually anywhere: in the corner of a hallway or bedroom, next to the fireplace on an angle, or beside a window to create a comfy reading nook. We often like to guide homeowners to accent chairs that have a lot of personality in terms of their upholstery design, colour, and shape so they can make a statement, but also provide you with comfort. When it comes to chair fabric, anything works as an accent piece: leather, microfiber, nylon, etc.

 

2. What is the difference between a coffee table, end table & accent table?

End tables are typically placed at the end of your couch or beside a chair and are perfect for setting down a drink, the TV remote, or table light. Coffee tables are similar, but they have a lower height and can also hold things that you frequently use, like a remote, candles, books, or magazines. Accent tables, however, are designed to fit in any space and are a great way to add your favourite vases or pictures to your room, or even in a hallway. Accent tables can come in many finishes and wood options to match the rest of your aesthetics

.

3. What accents can I put in my dining room?

Don't think that you can't decorate around your tables and chairs. There are plenty of ways to fill up extra space in your dining room that looks great, especially with different types of cabinets, shelving, or a bench seat that your family can share when it's your turn to entertain. Wine racks are another popular dining choice as well that can come in long, short, small or large styles to match the rest of your furniture.

 

4. Which types of furniture work best in an entryway?

As soon as people walk into your home, you want to create a lasting first impression. This can be done by utilizing different pieces mentioned above such as a chair, table, or even a bench or small storage unit that doubles as a bench. These are a very popular addition amongst homeowners since they're a piece that is used to tie the space together, but also doubles as seating while you tie your shoes, or tuck away extra mittens, hats, scarves, or shoes. They're available in any style too, whether you're going for a rustic or more modern style.

 

5. What type of accent furniture can be used in my kitchen?

If you have extra space in your kitchen that you aren't sure what to do with, you can select things like more seating (a bench is always a good choice), or even an accent table and chair with a finishing piece on top, (perhaps a serving stand with fruit, or a vase with fresh, blooming flowers?) You may also want to finish your kitchen off with a cabinet, armoire, or wine rack which can all come in the style and look that you're going for.

 

 

Need Assistance Shopping For Accent Furniture?

We have plenty of accent tables, chairs, benches, and other choices available online and in our stores. The choice can be difficult, but we even have an interior decorator available to help you choose the right piece of accent furniture for you and your home.
