Furniture serves a dual purpose in our homes: it supports our daily activities and becomes a silent witness to our lives, imbuing spaces with memories. While quality furniture is built to last, every piece has its natural lifespan. Recognizing when to replace furniture is key to maintaining a home that is both comfortable and up-to-date. Smitty's Fine Furniture offers durable and timeless pieces designed to endure the rigors of daily life, ensuring that when it's time to update your space, you're choosing from furnishings that promise longevity and sustained style.

Sofas: The Heart of Your Living Room

Your sofa is likely one of the most used pieces of furniture in your home. On average, a quality sofa can last between 7-15 years. If you're noticing sagging, creaking, or the cushions no longer offer support, it might be time to visit Smitty's and explore our large selection of sofas, which promise both comfort and longevity.

Mattresses: Your Sleep Sanctuary

We spend a third of our lives sleeping, so a good mattress is crucial. Typically, a mattress should be replaced every 7-10 years. If you're waking up with aches or if your mattress shows signs of wear and tear, consider a mattress from Smitty’s for a better night's rest.

Dining Tables: Where Memories Are Made

A dining table is the center of family gatherings and should last for many years. If the table is wobbly, has irreparable damage, or simply doesn't fit your lifestyle anymore, our selection of dining tables from reputable brands like Bermex and Amisco offer timeless designs that are built to last through the ages.

Accent Chairs: Adding Character to Every Room

Accent chairs can provide a pop of style for a good 5-10 years. If the fabric is faded or the seat isn't as comfortable, it might be time for an upgrade. Our wide variety of accent chairs are fit to rejuvenate any space with fresh designs and superior comfort.

When Is It Time?

Consider replacing your furniture when:

  • It no longer fits your space or lifestyle.
  • Repairs are too frequent or too costly.
  • It's uncomfortable or no longer serves its purpose.
  • You're ready for a change in style.
