Today’s housing market has exploded and prices are through the roof. Whether you’re a first-time homebuyer or are considering making a move the costs of purchasing a home are prohibitive.

 

So what are people doing?

 

Trends show that people aren’t buying homes as much as they once were. Instead, they are investing in their current home and making it a space they can continue to enjoy for years to come.

 

Homeowners have started to realize that any type of house — detached, semi, townhome, or condo — can be upgraded and updated. You can make your house a home.

 

At Smitty’s, our decorators love to help homeowners breathe new life into their homes by updating their spaces with new furniture and accessories. Here are some of our favourite ways to turn your house into a home.
 

Table Transformation

The kitchen is the hub of every home. It’s the place where you spend many hours preparing meals for your family and friends — and the dining table is at the heart of every kitchen or dining room.

 

Your dining table is used as a surface for entertaining, working, playing games, and as a place to gather around for quality time. It is a multifunctional workhorse.

 

Selecting a new dining table is a great way to update your space and meet your current lifestyle needs.

 

How do you choose the right dining table?


There are several important considerations to think about when selecting a new table:

  • How big is your space?
  • How many people need to fit around the table?
  • Do you need a table with extensions, to fit more people?
  • Do you want a round, square, or rectangular table?
  • Will the table need to be versatile and used for more than just eating?

 

We have a great selection of dining tables to choose from, and our expert decorating team can help you select the best choice for your space. If you want to get a headstart before coming into the showroom, you can go online and use our custom room planner to design your dream dining space.

 

Seating Shake-Up

Sometimes all it takes is updating your dining table seating to give your space a whole new look and feel. There are more options and styles to choose from than ever before — and you can mix and match seating to suit your needs.

 

How do you choose the right dining chairs?


There are several important considerations to think about when selecting dining chairs:

 

  • How many people need to fit around the table?
    • This is important when deciding how wide each chair should be.
  • How tall is your dining table?
    • Most tables range between 28-31 inches and people typically prefer sitting with 10-12 inches of space between their lap and the tabletop.
  • Do you want arms or armless?
    • If you want arms, do you want the chair to slide underneath the tabletop?
  • Would a bench provide you with more flexibility?
    • Benches can slide under a table and save on floor space.

 

Our showrooms are filled with amazing chairs, from wood, to fabric, to leather, to metal — we’ve got it all.

For the biggest impact, the number one piece of furniture to update in your living room is your sofa. By replacing a sofa, sofa bed, or sectional, you can make a room feel completely different.

 

How do you choose the right sofa?


There are several important considerations to think about when selecting a sofa:

  • How much room do you have (both width and length)?
  • How many people are you looking to fit on your sofa?
  • Do you want your sofa to fit into a corner of a room or divide a room?
  • Do you need extra sleeping space for guests?
  • Do you have pets and need to consider cleaning or fabric options?

Smitty’s Pro Tip: Don’t forget to measure your front door. You don’t want to order a new sofa only to find out that it won’t make it into your home. As part of our service, Smitty’s can offer you a free check measure, to ensure your furniture will fit into your home.

 

We have a huge selection of sofa styles ranging from traditional to modern. We also offer brands that are customizable — allowing you the flexibility to select your fabric, legs, and throw cushions.

 

The expert decorating team at Smitty’s will work with you to find and customize unique pieces of furniture to suit your space. By ordering your furniture in October, you can have your new furniture (and your refreshed space) in time for the holidays!


Visit us at Smitty’s and see just how easy it is to turn your house into a home.
