Rug Trends to Inspire Your Next Decorating Project

RUG TRENDS TO INSPIRE YOUR NEXT DECORATING PROJECT

As we prepare to transition into fall, there is no better time to refresh the space in your home that you have been dreaming of updating! Whether that is your living room, foyer, bedroom or dining room, adding or replacing a rug is a great way to add a touch of on-trend style and color, and bring your space together. We have rounded up several rug trends to inspire your next decorating project!


Natural Material Rugs: The use of natural materials like jute, sisal, wool, and silk is a hot trend for good reason. These natural fibers are eco-friendly and incredibly durable. They also add the perfect natural element to a space and balance out bolder choices in accent pieces. 


Rug Layering: Layering rugs is a trend that is here to stay! This popular design technique calls for layering different sized or shaped rugs on top of one another to add dimension and texture to a space. You can go more conservative and layer a bold pattern on top of a more natural base or combine two bolder patterns together to create a completely unique look. 



Fun patterns: From more traditional borders and florals to geometric shapes, rug design trends have varied for years. Oriental rugs are a fun combination of traditional and modern, with timeless design and color mixed with trendy shapes and accent colors. The Magnolia Home by Joanna Gaines rug below is a great example of incorporating fun patterns and colors in your rug choice that complement the wood accents and leather beautifully. 



Neutral Hues: Bold colors and patterns from years past are giving way to more earth-tones with minimalistic design and texture. This allows for fun accent pieces like chairs and wall decor to shine on a more neutral canvas. 



If you are loving one of these fun rug trends and considering refreshing your home for fall, you are in luck! Furniture of Dalton’s Last Chance Rug Clearance Sale is happening in-store now. The sale runs from August 1-15 with savings of up to 70% off hundreds of designer rugs! We are open Monday-Saturday from 9 am - 6 pm. We are also open after hours by appointment, which you can schedule on Facebook or by giving us a call at (800) 262-3132. We look forward to helping you create the design aesthetic you have been dreaming of with a gorgeous new rug at a great price!

Waterproof Hardwood

(Calabria Oak-Verona Cafe)


In today’s chaotic world, there is no shortage of potential accidents. Whether you have small kids running in and out of the house with wet feet, or you just got an adorable puppy who is still potty training, keeping your flooring from getting wet isn’t always easy. But just because life is sometimes messy, that doesn’t mean you have to compromise on creating the aesthetic you love in your home. That is why waterproof hardwoods are the perfect solution that allows you to have the look you desire with the functionality that you need.


Carpets of Dalton understands the importance of meeting both your wants and needs when it comes to flooring. We have several options in waterproof flooring that will allow you to bring your vision to life and give you peace of mind from life’s everyday accidents. 


Our waterproof hardwoods are backed with a waterproof core and attached IXPE pad for noise reduction, ensuring that those occasional spills don’t cause warping. The surface is a real wire-brushed hardwood veneer that gives you the authentic look and feel of hardwood, unlike other waterproof flooring options that only mimic the look of hardwood. The surface is also sealed with extra protection from water for easy cleanup. 


The planks come in random lengths to create a more natural look, and they are beveled on all 4 sides with click profiles for fast & easy installation. They are scratch and dent resistant, stain-resistant, and pet-friendly, making them the perfect choice for all seasons of life! 


Waterproof hardwoods also allow you to have the beautiful look of hardwood in places that were previously off-limits like the bathroom or laundry room. This is because you don’t have to worry about the water that will inevitably get onto the floors in these areas. You can simply wipe up large puddles, and go about your day. Waterproof hardwoods are also super easy to clean because they can be mopped, unlike traditional hardwoods.  


(Calabria Oak -Sorrento Brandy)


If you have been dreaming of achieving a real hardwood look in your home, but know that your lifestyle demands something more durable, waterproof hardwood flooring is a perfect choice! Call us at (800) 262-3132 or visit us on Facebook to schedule an appointment today to see all of the great options we have available. You can also check out our website for more details.

Tips for Enjoying Summer at Home

Summer is officially here! That means lots of pool days, backyard BBQ’s, and fun nights outdoors. With the COVID-19 pandemic, we all may be spending more time at home this summer than we are used to, but that doesn’t mean it has to be any less fun-filled and exciting! We have lots of great tips and ideas for enjoying your summer at home.



  1. Family game night (or day!) In the hustle and bustle world that we live in, the art of family game night has somewhat been lost, but if this new pace in life has taught us anything, it is that spending more time with family and friends really is a blast! And what better way to make the most of family time than with a little friendly competition? Host a game night full of board games, BINGO, card games, and more! Set up different stations for the adults and kids or play a favorite for all ages. 

  2. Bring on the water! If there is one thing that is certain during the summer, it's the heat! No need to stay inside during the hot summer days though. If you don’t have a pool to cool off in, there are so many other great ways to incorporate a water day. Buy an inexpensive blow-up pool to splash around or lounge in. Create a DIY water slide like this one from All Things Thrifty or set up a sprinkler for the kids (and adults) to run through. 

  3. Get crafty. Summer is a great time to try out new crafts. The kids have more free time and crafts are a great way to let them get creative while learning a new skill. Happiness is Homemade has several great crafts including a milk carton birdhouse, DIY sidewalk chalk, and much more! If your kids are older or you want an adult craft, you can take on planting projects or make fun hanging lights from materials you have laying around. 

  4. Plan a staycation! Even if your beach plans were muddled this year, that doesn’t mean you can’t have a great staycation. Enjoying local parks and trails is a great way to explore your own town and see new places that you might not have known about before. Get takeout from local restaurants and enjoy a relaxing evening at home al fresco or indoors if an afternoon shower pops up. Turn your backyard into an oasis complete with lounge chairs, a fun cocktail, and relaxing beach music to recreate the feel of an all-inclusive at a fraction of the cost! 

  5. Spruce up your space. Summer is a great time to work on your home with the extra daylight and gorgeous weather. Whether you want to create an inviting outdoor space, update your bedroom furniture, or replace that mattress that is putting a serious damper on your sleep-in Saturday plans, now is the perfect time to make it happen! 


At Furniture of Dalton, we have everything you need to make staying at home this summer more enjoyable! Take some of our tips for enjoying summer at home and visit our showroom, where we can make all of your staycation dreams come true. Take advantage of our Summer Staycation Financing Event with 0% interest for up to 48 months* going on now through July 31. Click here for financing information. We feel sure that with a little creativity, you can make this the best summer yet!

Father's Day Gift Guide

Father’s Day is quickly approaching and that means finding the perfect gift for the amazing men in our lives. Whether it is your husband’s first Father’s Day or your dad’s 40th Father’s Day, giving a gift that makes him feel loved and appreciated never gets old! We rounded up a few ideas from the awesome team at Furniture of Dalton that are sure to make dad feel special.


  1. A nice addition to his wardrobe. We all know a new tie is the timeless Father’s Day favorite, but a thoughtful piece that plays on dad’s unique hobbies and interests would be a great way to make it personal. If the dad in your life is an avid golfer, a nice golf tee paired with a round of golf at his favorite course could be a real hole in one! Another fun option for the traveler or active dad is a new pair of tennis shoes, so he can hit the ground running. 

  2. The gift of grilling! Every dad needs the perfect grill to show off his culinary skills and the Big Green Egg will do just that. With advanced ceramic material, the Big Green Egg retains moisture in food and will last for years to come! With options to grill, smoke, roast, and bake, there will be no shortage of ideas and recipes for dad to try out all summer long and beyond. Check out these popular recipes and consider making a homemade recipe card to give dad with his new grill or Eggcessories. Come into Furniture of Dalton to check out our selection of Big Green Eggs.



  1. Rest & Relaxation. We know the dads in our lives are always on the go providing for their families, traveling, and helping out around the house, so what better gift than a much-needed opportunity to sit back and relax? Encouraging dad to kick back and relax in one of our super comfy recliners while watching a sporting event or one of his favorite movies would be a dream come true for almost any dad in your life. A personal favorite of ours is the Southern Motion brand as they have options for power recline, headrest, and even lift, so dad will have no problem drifting into his happy place. 

  2. Peace of mind. For the dad who has it all, give the gift of protection for his most valuable possessions with a Champion Gun Safe. Crafted of premium steel, these safes are stronger and more durable than any other safe on the market. With small children or grandchildren around, a gun safe is a perfect way to ensure safety and peace of mind. With fire and water-resistance, a Champion safe is also great for protecting important documents and heirlooms from damage.  


No matter what you decide to get dad this Father’s Day, the simple thought and gesture is sure to be appreciated. If you are still at a loss on the perfect gift, Furniture of Dalton is here to help! Stop by the showroom to browse and ask one of our helpful staff for assistance.

Outdoor Living Trends and Ideas

Outdoor Living Trends and Ideas


This year’s outdoor living trends are all about bringing the indoors out! Turn your backyard into an inviting oasis while still maintaining the comfort and ease that you enjoy inside your home. Outdoor living spaces are becoming an extension of the home, taking into consideration the design and style of the home to create a cohesive and seamless feel. 


Incorporating Nature:
One design element that has become prevalent in outdoor living is incorporating natural elements to create a peaceful atmosphere that celebrates nature.  Incorporating potted plants and growing vines on trellises adds color and interest to your outdoor space to create a serene environment. Creating a raised bed garden is a great way to make your outdoor living space inviting and allows you to grow healthy food for family and guests. 


Outdoor Kitchens:
Another popular trend is outdoor kitchens. Homeowners want to have the option to cook and entertain outside. Options range from simple grill stations with prep area to full outdoor kitchens complete with cooktops, wine fridge, seating area, and more. The options are limitless and can be scaled to accommodate all budgets. Adding a dining room set from Lane Venture allows you to bring the dining experience outdoors. 


Fire Pits:
The quintessential picture of outdoor living involves gathering with your guests around a warm fire. An outdoor fire pit provides heat and ambiance for cozy evenings outdoors. Fire pits are a trend that is here to stay and enjoying them has never been easier! Incorporate easy to maintain pieces like the Sun Villa River House Fire Pit paired with cushioned chairs and escape to your own Savannah-inspired night by the river.  


Furniture of Dalton is here to help bring your outdoor living design vision to life with our expansive and beautiful outdoor furniture selection. Call or stop in today to get started creating the outdoor living oasis of your dreams. 

 

Mixing Materials:
Incorporating a variety of materials in an outdoor space can be fashionable and functional. Mixing metals, rattens, and sun and water resistant cushions in a space adds warmth and color while also making the outdoor living furniture durable and long-lasting. Outdoor rugs are a great way to bring it all together while adding a cozy touch and protecting the flooring on your deck or patio. In a smaller space, bringing in simple and functional pieces like a medal swivel lounge chair paired with a wooden end table is a great way to mix materials and create a relaxing area to wind down and get lost in a good book. 


When choosing furniture for outdoor spaces, it is important to pay attention to the quality, durability, performance, and integrity. Furniture of Dalton has a wide selection of high quality products for all budgets. Adding dining tables, chairs, sectionals, rockers, and fire pits will get your outdoor space ready to entertain friends and family and extend the gathering from inside to outdoors! Whether you have a simple vision for your patio or dreams of elaborate outdoor living spaces, we hope these ideas can help you create backyard bliss.

Why LVT? The Benefits of Endless


Luxury Vinyl Tile, LVT, is making a huge appearance in flooring design and for good reason. It’s durable, economical, and it looks amazing! At Carpets of Dalton, we love this product and have a great selection of different styles and options to make all of your flooring dreams come true. 


“LVT is an amazing decision for every family, especially a family with children and pets” commented Pam, Carpets of Dalton Flooring Expert, “it is durable, easy to clean, and an affordable option for anyone wanting to freshen up their space without breaking the bank.”


Today’s LVT has come a long way from the options that were available in the 50’s and 60’s. “It ain’t your mama’s your vinyl flooring”. Combining high style design and waterproof construction, LVT is a great alternative to ceramic tile which can be cold and expensive to install. Installation is very straight-forward, making adding LVT to your home a great DIY product. Select products even come with IXPE backing pad attached, so there is no need to lay down padding before installing.


CONWAY
COLLECTION

We have so many great style options available! A few of our favorites include the Conway Collection. With the attached IXPE pad, this option is great for multifunctional spaces in the home. It allows homeowners to achieve the beauty of hardwood without the expense. 



MAJESTIC
COLLECTION

Our Majestic Collection is great for apartments or areas where you don’t want to remove existing flooring as this product can be installed over existing floors. There are so many design options including minimal and modern, industrial, farmhouse, and more! 


Both collections offer a ceramic-bead finish which is very durable and scratch-resistant with an SPC core. The hard-wearing tiles boast a tough wear layer of 20 mil. As the surface resists stains, scuffs, dents, and other signs of wear, the tiles will look brand new for years to come! The wear layer also makes cleaning and maintenance as easy as possible. The floor comes with a 25-year residential and a 15-year light commercial warranty.
