Incredible mattresses available from Smitty's Fine Furniture

Don’t spend the night tossing and turning, adjusting pillows, kicking off covers, and struggling to get quality sleep. Don’t settle for feeling tired. The days of putting up with your old mattress and suffering the consequences are over.

 

Today, there are revolutionary mattresses on the market that can provide you with exactly what you need, so you can get the rest you deserve!

 

Serta Mattresses

Serta is a well-known brand that offers a wide range of mattress styles, ranging from their Perfect Sleeper, to Sertapedic, to the latest iComfort line.

 

The Serta Perfect Sleeper mattress has been officially recognized by the National Sleep Foundation as a mattress that helps solve five common sleep problems including:

  • Tossing and turning
  • Lack of support
  • Being too hot or too cold while sleeping
  • Partner disturbance
  • Mattress roll-off or sag

Serta’s latest iComfort mattress was designed with individualized comfort in mind. Crafted with a special gel memory foam, this mattress will:

  • Relieve pressure points for increased comfort
  • Provide added support to help with body alignment
  • Aid in temperature regulation while you sleep

 

The iComfort mattress is the world’s first to offer a memory coil support layer with hundreds of individually-wrapped, slow-recovery coils that continuously adapt to the contours of your body — without that springy feeling.

 

Kingsdown Mattresses

These days, putting up with a mattress because it only comes in one level of firmness or in one height is not necessary. The latest innovation in mattresses is the custom-made mattress — and it’s truly amazing!

 

Kingsdown bedMATCH™ allows you to find the mattress that fits your body. Their patented diagnostic system uses over 1,000 scientific calculations and 18 statistical measurements to identify the optimal support for your body.

 

At Smitty’s, we have been using this science-based technology with exceptional results! We encourage all our mattress-shopping customers to lie down on our bedMATCH™ Sleep Diagnostic System. In just a couple of minutes, this incredible device will be able to recommend the best sleep solution, based on a detailed analysis of your unique body type.

 

How does the bedMATCH™ system work?

It’s a simple and easy process, and you can do it in just a couple of minutes while you’re in the store.

 

There are three quick steps:

Create a profile by answering a few short questions about your sleep preferences.
Lie down on the test bed for three minutes, while the technology scientifically assesses your measurements and postural support needs.
The bedMATCH™ system will then recommend mattresses that best suit your specific needs.It’s that easy!

 

What do the bedMATCH™ recommendations mean?

The recommendations are coded to make them easy to understand and will reflect the mattresses that are available in the showroom. Each number represents a different type and level of postural support, ranging from extra firm to plush support.

 

1 = plush support
2 = medium plush support
3 = medium firm support
4 = extra firm support

 

You can also receive a blended recommendation, that outlines your needs and those of your partner, so you can see the different requirements and make an informed decision about the kind of mattress that will work best for both of you.

 

 

Comfort is personal. That’s why Smitty's offers a range of models from extra-firm to luxuriously plush.  Don’t put up with another rough night’s sleep. Come into Smitty’s and we’ll help you find the perfect mattress.

Moving into your first home is an exciting time. Your home is a place that you can make your own. No more putting up with someone else’s style — it’s your turn to decorate!

 

There’s so much to do when you move into a new home that it can be tricky to know where to start, which furniture pieces to buy, how much to spend, and how much to save.

 

Here are the top three items that our interior decorators believe you should have in your first home. (Hint: quality is key!)

 

1. A Good Quality Mattress

(Kingsdown mattress)

 

We all know how important getting a good night’s sleep is to living a happy and healthy life. This is one area where you don’t want to skimp.

 

There are lots of mattresses on the market to choose from, but Serta and Kingsdown are two of the highest-quality brands. With pocket coils, specialty foams and fibres, and support that conforms to you, you will get the rest you need with these options.

 

Kingsdown has a patented bedMATCH™ diagnostic system that can help determine the best mattress for optimal support — visit our showroom to test it out!

 

2. A Good Quality Sofa

(Decor-Rest sofa)

 

The sofa is one piece of furniture that gets a lot of wear and tear from daily use. Typically the largest piece of furniture in your living room, your sofa should be well-made to withstand daily life — no one wants to see a ripped, scratched, or sagging sofa in the centre of your new home.

 

While you will spend more money on a quality sofa, you will reap the reward because it will last much longer and look better in the long-term.

 

Sofas come in all shapes and sizes, and some can be customized to suit your specific design taste. From condo-sized to oversized and sofabeds to sectionals, there’s something for every new home.

 

Brentwood makes gorgeous sofas that will stand the test of time in both wear and style. Superstyle is another Canadian brand that offers high-quality sofas that range from traditional to casual.

 

3. A Good Quality Dining Set

(Bermex Dinali Dining Set)

 

While you may not always be hosting a large group of people, or trying to impress the in-laws, you do want to have a dining area that looks nice, stands the test of time, and offers you the flexibility to seat more than two people.

 

A dining table and chair set is a bit of an investment, but it’s one that will last — and if you decide on wood, you can refinish the surface if your colour scheme or style changes.

 

Adding a dining set that incorporates a bench along one side will also offer you increased seating and flexibility to host larger groups.

 

If your dining table doesn’t come with chairs, click here to read some expert tips on choosing the perfect dining chairs for your home.

 

Your first home deserves some love, so visit us at Smitty’s and we’ll help you find the best furniture for you.

Happy New Year! It’s another new year filled with promise. At Smitty’s, we know how much joy and excitement a new year can bring. If you’ve been thinking about making some interior decorating changes or upgrades, we can help. After all, new year = new furniture.

 

Time for a Change

 

If you’ve been sitting on the same worn out sofa, eating at the same scratched table, and sleeping on the same sagging mattress, then enough is enough. It’s time for a change.
 

“A house with old furniture has no need of ghosts to be haunted.”

― Hope Mirrlees, Lud-in-the-Mist

 

If you’re like most people, you probably have many areas in your home that you want to update and refresh. Maybe you’ve grown tired of your colour scheme, or your furniture doesn’t reflect your style, or perhaps you’ve been inspired by something you saw in a magazine and you want to get that look in your space.

 

Change can be re-decorating and re-furnishing an entire home, or it can be as simple as swapping out your bed. Whatever you are looking to achieve, here are a few ideas to inspire your interior decorating changes.

 

Matte Black is Where It’s At!


(Amisco Elgin bed)

 

Matte black furniture is not only on trend, but it’s the kind of colour that doesn’t really go out of style. Easily paired with existing furniture, matte black can blend in with your decor without looking out of place.

 

By contrast, matte black can also act as an accent and work to highlight a particular room, theme, or area — or it can stand out on its own and bring some drama to your space.

 

Black can be added to virtually any space, from bedrooms to kitchens.

 


(Amisco Dirk table)

 

Amisco has a wide variety of matte black furniture pieces including, bed frames, stools, chairs, dining tables, coffee tables, and more.


(Amisco Tacoma dining table)

  • Mix and match black with distressed wood for a contemporary look.
     
  • Trying pairing a black and chrome coffee table with a luxurious rug for a high-style look.
     
  • Add a leather chair and ottoman for an urban look.

    (Decor-Rest Romeo chair)

Bronze, Not Brass


(Decor-Rest)

 

Brass went out in the 80s and there’s no looking back. Bronze, on the other hand, is not only in style, but timeless in the same way as matte black. Bronze accents and decorative items, finishing details, and even table bases are a classic addition to any home.

 


(Artage Hop table)

  • Try adding a bronze lamp, bronze candle holders, or a bronze decorative bowl to your decor and you will be amazed by how much visual interest it brings to your space.
     
  • One of the easiest ways to incorporate bronze into your decor is by adding a mirror with a bronze frame. Try adding this to your hallway, bedroom, bathroom, or living room.
     
  • Wall art is another great way to add bronze into your decor without taking up additional floor space.

 

(Surya mirror)

 

Expert tip: Place your mirror in a location where it will reflect light coming into your home via a window. This kind of placement will carry the light into your room and help to brighten your space.

 

Drama, Drama, Drama

(Superstyle Furniture Bench 530)

 

Whatever your style, whatever room you are updating, whatever theme you are going for, be sure to add some drama to your space. Don’t be afraid of colours, patterns, or shapes.

 

Adding just one stand-out piece in any room can elevate the design and overall look of the space.


(Hooker Furniture Thicket Console)

 

Adding something bold doesn’t mean that it has to overtake your space, it can be something as small as an accent pillow or a lamp.

 

There are so many gorgeous ways to upgrade your home with new furniture this year. Come and visit us at Smitty’s for some inspiration and our interior decorating experts will guide you through the best options for your home.

A place for everything and everything in its place — a classic phrase that rings true for many homeowners. If you’re looking at ways to refresh your home and you have space to work with, then we have lots of great ideas for you. We carry many quality brands that offer a variety of beautiful and comfortable furniture for large spaces.

 

Statement Furniture


(Palliser’s The Bloom)

 

When you have room, there’s no excuse for going small. Choose statement furniture to bring your style to life.

 

Statement furniture is typically large-sized furnishings, like sectionals, oversized coffee tables, bed frames with show-stopping headboards, and entertainment units. The idea behind statement furniture is to add an element that stands out from the rest of your furniture and decor, features a bold design or colour, and is made from a material that isn’t used in the rest of that room.

 


(Hooker Furniture’s Arabella California King Mirrored Panel Bed)

 

Hooker Furniture’s Arabella California King Mirrored Panel Bed is a prime example of statement furniture. The oversized bedframe and headboard provide a glamourous and modern look, while helping to anchor the entire feel of the bedroom.

 


(Bermex Expression table)

 

Bermex’s Expression dining table is an elegant example of a table that makes a statement. Available in a variety of finishes, this dining set will impress your dinner guests — no matter the occasion.

 

Single Purpose Furniture


(Hooker Furniture True Vintage Bench)

 

When you have ample space in your home, then you do not need to ensure that your furniture serves more than one purpose. You likely won’t need to worry about storage or fit. In this case, you have the freedom to fill your home with beautiful furniture and accents to suit your style and your life.

 

Consider adding a bench to your bedroom, bathroom, guest room, or front entranceway. Benches will add comfort, style, and functionality — and they come in a wide variety of colours, sizes, and fabrics. From leather to wood, you can find something to work in any space.

 


(Palliser Chesapeake leather recliner)

 

When you’re not concerned about having space to fit your furniture, you can add everything you’ve ever wanted. For example, adding a reclining chair in your living room is a wonderful way to bring some extra comfort to your personal space. Just imagine stretching out to read or watch the game.

 

The possibilities are virtually endless when you have large spaces to work with. Visit Smitty’s today and get inspired by our selection of high-quality furniture.

The flowers outside are starting to bloom and the environment is becoming more colourful every day. Don’t leave colour to just the outside world — it’s the perfect time of year to bring some colour into your home.

 

We know that many people feel afraid to bring colour into their homes or aren’t sure where to begin. At Smitty’s, we know that changing up your colour palette can seem daunting, but we’re here to help!

 

Experts tips on adding colour to your home

 

Here are a few important things to keep in mind when adding colour to your home:

 

#1. You don’t have to change everything at once.

 

Don’t feel pressure to throw out all your existing decor and furniture and replace it all with new pieces. You can add in pops of colour throughout your home and get used to living with colour before deciding to make bolder choices.

 

#2. Colour doesn’t have to be bold.

 

Adding colour doesn’t mean that you have to include red, green, orange, or other bright colours. There’s nothing wrong with muted or pastel tones. There is a place for every colour — it all depends on your style.

 

#3. Have some fun.

 

Adding colour doesn’t have to be a serious business. Try adding splashes of colour in fun ways. Fun pops of colour can be achieved with custom throw pillows, colourful vase groupings, artwork, accent chairs, and more.

 

Once you’ve added some colour to your home, try moving the pieces around.

 

For example, move the colourful throw pillows from your sofa to your bed, or place the colourful vases on your coffee table instead of your dining room table, or shift your colourful accent chair into your guest room.

 

Moving colourful pieces around your home gives you the opportunity to see how the colours work (or don’t work) in different locations — this will help you better define your colour and style preferences.

Use a colour palette

There is no perfect solution when it comes to selecting the best colourful furniture for your home — it all comes down to form, function, and your lifestyle.

 

Some people prefer to have a theme or colour palette for each room or each floor of their home. Everyone is different, and that’s okay. You don’t have to fit into a particular mould.

 

You will want to ensure that the colours you are adding will work with the other colours in your room. To help ensure that your colours look cohesive, we recommend using a colour palette as a guide.

 

A colour palette will help you see what colours, patterns, and fabrics will work well together. Take the time to put together a complete palette of swatches, photos, and ideas to help ground your ideas before making a larger purchase.

 

Trending summer colours

 

If you prefer to stay on trend with your colour scheme, then you’ll want to add the following colours to your home:

  • Lavender
  • Light Green
  • Yellow
  • Tomato Red
  • Rose
  • Sky Blue

It’s true that colour trends come and go, but if there is a colour that you love then you should add it to your home as you see fit. Don’t scrap what you love just because a designer told you it is no longer on trend — you can achieve a trending look and keep the colours you enjoy.

 

For all your colour decorating challenges, come and visit us at Smitty’s. Our expert, in-house decorators will help you bring some colour into your home.

Two People Wondering What To Do With Their Furniture
 

At Smitty’s, we know that magazines make homes look amazing. Websites and decorating magazines showcase rooms that are immaculate, totally on trend, and styled perfectly. We also know that our customers don’t live in a magazine. Your homes are actually lived in, which means they are not immaculate and perfectly styled — and that’s perfectly normal.

 

We want you to see that you can furnish your home with beautiful, stylish, quality furniture and make it work — whatever your lifestyle.

 

In this blog, we will showcase one of our team members and highlight how they have made beautiful, quality furniture work in their home — it’s all about Real Furniture for Real Life.

 

Kathy’s Bedroom

 

Kathy's Bedroom set up

 

Kathy’s bedroom had a 70s oak poster bed and matching bedroom suite. It was dated and big and did not reflect her, or her partner’s, taste.

 

“I wanted an updated look that reflected both my partner and myself.”, said Kathy. “He loves solid wood and I love soft and sexy. He wanted a TV in the bedroom and I wanted comfort, so we got the adjustable bed. It works out great — I’m cozy and comfortable and he can adjust the mattress to watch his favourite shows.”

Now, with the Serta adjustable bed, the space is warm and comfortable and better reflects us as a couple. “We are a blended family and it’s the second time around for us. This redecorating allowed us to bring a little of him and a little of me in the space. Now, it’s timeless and will take us into our future.”

 

Check out the following links to learn more:

 

The bed frame is Decor-Rest.

The mattress is Zedbed.

The adjustable bed is Serta.

The bedside tables are Durham Furniture.


 

You can get Kathy’s look in your bedroom — all of the pieces are available in the Smitty’s showroom. Visit Smitty’s today and bring real furniture into your home.

Bed with headboard, side tables, and lamps at Smitty's Fine Furniture

Headboards were originally created in Ancient Egypt to help keep cold draughts away from the head of the person sleeping in the bed. Headboards were constructed from wood and were designed to encourage the cold air to fall to the floor. Then, in Ancient Greece, headboards became more ornate and featured hand-carved designs and padding for comfort.

 

Headboards have certainly evolved over the years. Now, a headboard is more than just a functional construction for keeping the draughts away. They also serve a greater purpose than helping to keep your pillows from falling off! The headboard has the potential to be the design focal point of your bedroom, and it can set the tone for the entire room.

 

At Smitty’s, we believe the headboard is the piece de resistance of your bedroom!

 

The only question that remains is: What kind of headboard should you get?

 

Types of Headboards

 

There are many types of headboards to choose from, ranging in styles from contemporary to classic, and constructed using a variety of materials from wood, to steel, to fabric. Headboards can be purchased independently from your frame but, more often than not, they are sold as part of a complete bed frame, with a matching footboard.

 

The headboard trend in 2018 is upholstered. These headboards can be affixed directly to the wall over your mattress, or they can come as part of your bed frame structure.

 

Upholstered headboards may feature a wood trim, nailhead designs, decorative stitching, creative buttons, and much more — it all depends on what sort of look you want to achieve.  

 

Smitty’s Pro Tip: Purchasing a fully-upholstered frame will create a more luxurious look for your bedroom — and, keep in mind that the headboard doesn’t need to match your furniture or bedding. The headboard can accent the space and define a focal point for your room.

 

Upholstered Headboards & Bed Frames

Zedbed is one of the few mattress manufacturers to make its own memory foam from start to finish, with facilities in Canada.

 

Zedbed mattresses do not have inner coils. Instead, they are constructed with an eco-friendly, soy-based memory foam to offer enhanced therapeutic support.

 

Similar to Serta’s iComfort mattress, the memory foam is designed to:

  • Help you maintain optimal body alignment
  • Reduce pressure points and promote better circulation
  • Absorb movement for uninterrupted sleep

The Zedbed offers five different styles of memory foam mattresses. If you’re not sure which mattress would work best for your unique situation, you can visit their website and complete a quick and easy online questionnaire to help you find the best mattress.

 

Zedbed products are available as foundations and in an adjustable line. Whatever option you choose, the Zedbed will help you get a better night’s sleep with its innovative construction.

New bedroom furniture for the New Year from Smitty's Fine Furniture

Welcome to 2018! It’s a new year full of new experiences, new ideas, and new improvements.

 

The new year gives you a fresh start — like hitting the reset button. It’s a time when many of us make resolutions, where we endeavour to improve our diet, our exercise regimen, or make changes to better our lives and our well-being. One of the best resolutions you can make this new year is to improve your sleep.

 

Getting a good night’s sleep is one of the most effective ways to improve your overall health.

 

The Benefits of Good Sleep

There are countless benefits to getting a proper night’s sleep:

  • Improved Brain Function & Memory
    • While you sleep, your brain is still working. It’s preparing neural pathways that retain information and enhance your problem-solving skills.
  • Improved Mood & Reduced Stress
    • Sleeping helps to calm the body and relieve tension. Studies show that better sleep reduces depression, anxiety, and the effects of stress.
  • Improved Immune Function
    • The body heals itself while you sleep, which can help prevent sickness. Studies show that people who sleep less than seven hours are nearly three times more likely to develop a cold than people who sleep over eight hours.
  • Improved Metabolic Function
    • While you sleep, your body’s cortisol levels are reduced. Cortisol is a stress hormone and it activates reward centres in your brain that can be satisfied with food. The more you sleep, the more your cortisol level declines, providing you with better weight control.

Is my mattress worn out?

 

Many people don’t realize when their mattress has reached the end of its life. Sleeping on a worn out mattress can result in poor sleep, pain, and discomfort.

 

Here are some quick questions to ask yourself to determine if your mattress is worn out:

  1. Does your mattress sag or have indentations where you lie?
  2. Does your mattress creak or squeak?
  3. Do you toss and turn all night long, trying to get comfortable?
  4. Is your back sore after waking in the morning?
  5. Is your mattress over 10 years old?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, then the time has come to shop for a new mattress.

 

What kind of mattress should I get?

 

There are many considerations to take into account when shopping for a new mattress and everyone has different needs. Here are some key considerations:

  • Do you require the same level of firmness as your partner?
  • Do you have particular health issues to take into account?
  • Do you have difficulty getting out of bed?
  • Do you get hot while you sleep?

There are many different kinds of mattresses on the market and it’s important to have answers to these key questions before you go mattress shopping.

 

What brand of mattress is the best?

 

We understand that you want the best mattress for the best sleep, but finding the “best” mattress brand is definitely a personal decision. Any website that tries to tell you that they offer the “best” mattress on the market should send up a red flag.

 

There are all kinds of mattresses to choose from including: eco-friendly, custom, adjustable, memory foam, spring coil, layered coil, gel-infused foam, pillow tops, and more. There are unique benefits to all of these types of mattresses — the key is determining which one is right for you.

 

At Smitty’s, we recommend a variety of mattress brands like Serta, Kingsdown, and Zedbed. We are proud to offer brands that have been recognized for their quality construction and excellent warranties — and then we go above and beyond by offering our 30-Day Comfort Guarantee for mattress and base sets.


Smitty's has great success when it comes to helping people select the right mattress. Come and visit your local Smitty’s store today. We’ll take the time, and use scientific tools like bedMATCH™, to help you find the right mattress for quality sleep.

While the kitchen may be the hub of your home, the bedroom is your personal sanctuary — it’s also where you will spend the most time over the course of your life, so you want it to be perfect.

 

It is important that a bedroom is comfortable so you can feel calm and get the rest you need. But bedrooms can offer a lot more than comfort, and they aren’t just a place for sleeping. More than ever before, bedrooms are incorporating style and character and are becoming a fashionable oasis in people’s homes.

 

What are the steps to creating your ‘wow’ bedroom?

 

Get To Know Your Style

 

First things first, you need to ask yourself what you like. You can sift through some home design magazines for inspiration, but it might be simpler and more fun to take the HGTV Bedroom Personality Quiz.

 

Styles include romantic, dreamer, rebel, creator, and more!

 

What Is Your Colour Palette?

 

Once you have a sense of your style, it will be important to examine the colour palette in your space, and in your home.

  • Are you looking to paint your bedroom, or keep it the same colour?
  • Do you want your bedroom to blend in with the rest of your home, or stand out?
  • Do you like bold colours, or are you more interested in neutral tones?
  • How much room do you have to work with?
  • Is there a theme for your room (e.g. black and white retro, or airy beach)?
  • Do you want your furniture to match, or mix and match?

After you’ve answered these questions, you will be better prepared to begin selecting bedroom furniture pieces.

 

What Style of Bedroom Furniture Should You Choose?

 

There are many options to consider when selecting your bedroom furniture, and you don’t have to limit yourself to just one.

 

The Classic


Classic bedroom style traditionally incorporates a wooden bed frame with a wooden headboard, matching bedside tables, and a matching dresser with or without a mirror.

 

You can choose a sleigh bed, with its lovely curved headboard as the centrepiece to your room. Then, you can finish the look with solid wood tables, matching dressers finished in rich, deep coloured stains, and matching bedside lamps.

 

This classic style offers a warm look that will stand the test of time.

 

The Contemporary

Contemporary bedroom style can incorporate a wide variety of furniture pieces, from wood to steel and upholstered to iron.

 

You can pair a bed frame and headboard with matching nightstands and offset the match with a different style of dresser.

 

You can also jazz up the centrepiece of your room (aka your bed) by selecting an extra large headboard.

  • Traditional headboards are typically 0-3” wider than the bedframe and extend upwards between 14-29” above the horizontal plane of the bed.
     
  • Contemporary headboards can extend along the wall, taking in the width of your nightstands, and they can be as tall as you like.

 

The Mix & Match


Mix and match bedroom style allows you to pair pieces from different sets without being limited to one particular look and feel for your room.

 

You can pair a new headboard with an antique style dresser, and then match it with a contemporary bedside table. There are no rules.

 

This carefree look is easily updated and can be altered to go with your ever-changing style.


You Can Do It!


There are a lot of ways to turn your bedroom into a ‘wow’ bedroom. Come and visit Smitty’s and our expert decorators will help you bring your desired look to life.
