Design Tips: how to select the best fabric for you!

Selecting Colors:

If you want a visually energetic room, use contrasting or complementary colors in your design. If you want a more serene room, use harmonious colors, or colors that are positioned close together on the color wheel.

  • What colors are best for tranquil rooms?
    For relaxing rooms or spaces such as bedrooms and family rooms, we suggest "cool colors". Shades of blue, purple and green or tranquil, soft patterns.
  • What colors are best for active rooms?
    Warm colors, like red, orange and yellow, are considered stimulating. We recommend these in those spaces designed for activity or conversation, like dining rooms.
  • What if I can't decide warm vs cool?
    You can always blend and layer multiple shades of the same color for a monochromatic look. Neutrals, such as gray, have been a very stylish trend that peaceful compliments any decor in any room!

Planning around your Lifestyle:

  • Do you have stain resistant fabrics?
    Of course! There are many synthetic fibers that are resistant to stains and fading. Natural fibers are better at wicking away moisture - staying cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Our in-store professionals can help you choose whatever you need!
  • What fabrics last the longest?
    When selecting a fabric, keep in mind that the tighter the weave the better it will wear over time. For the high-traffic areas of your home (rugs, living room, etc) this is especially important.
  • What about furniture covers?
    Spector Furniture & Mattress Gallery also offers slipcovers in washable fabrics for extra protection or active lifestyles. Practical design solutions for you and your home!

More Tips:

  • Combine patterns, colors and textures to give rooms more depth.
  • Not every piece in your room needs to match perfectly. Being compatible but a little different builds an interesting and eclectic style.
