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.


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. 


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.

If you are interested in adding this amazing product to your home, Furniture of Dalton has you covered! We have a wide selection available and in stock. We also offer competitive pricing because you buy directly without the middleman. We have samples available that can be mailed right to your door and virtual sales appointments so we can turn your vision for your home into a reality.

The Heart Behind Furniture of Dalton and Carpets of Dalton: Get to Know Amy Peeples

Amy Peeples, co-owner of Furniture of Dalton and Carpets of Dalton in Dalton, Ga., sat down with us over a cup of coffee to discuss her love for the business, customers, and community.
Question: Share with us the story of how your family acquired Furniture of Dalton and Carpets of Dalton.
Furniture of Dalton and Carpets of Dalton have always been a staple in the community as the buildings welcome both residents and visitors home to Dalton as they drive up I75 North.

Our family and extended family own and operate businesses throughout the community, and our goal is to apply the same principles and values to the day-to-day operation of Furniture of Dalton and Carpets of Dalton.
Question: Tell us more about the Peeples family history.
My husband, Bryan, and I grew up in Dalton and were married in 1992. Today, we have four beautiful children and one daughter-in-law. Our parents both grew up in Dalton and my grandparents grew up in Dalton, so we’re three to four generations deep in the community. Needless to say, our family has a genuine love and a strong connection to the Dalton community. We’re invested in the success of the region and the quality of life of our residents. Our greatest sense of pride comes from supplying jobs to families in our community.
Question: What is different about Furniture of Dalton and Carpets of Dalton? Why is it worth the drive for customers across the southeast?
Furniture of Dalton and Carpets of Dalton are better and stronger than ever. Over the past few years, we’ve revitalized our store operations, inventory, and organization.

It’s truly an amazing time for our business, and we can wait to share with our customers from near and far what all we have for their homes. Come on in!
Question: Why do you enjoy helping customers and designers create dream spaces?
Our tagline is the destination that brings you home. We want to help each of our customers fall in love with his or her home all over again. Not only do I love meeting our customers, but I love being part of this talented team. My goal is to create a positive environment for our staff and, in turn, our customers. We have a family atmosphere and everyone here has a passion for what they do.
Question: Tell us about your family’s commitment to the community.
Our family feels so lucky and blessed to be part of the northwest Georgia community. We love the beauty and heart in the area, and we do our best to give back through projects like the Peeples Cancer Institute and United Way. We want our community and folks in neighboring cities to realize you no longer have to travel to Atlanta or Nashville for the best in furniture and flooring. It’s so important to support local businesses like ours. We welcome you into our store with open arms and hope you’ll visit soon!
