Buying the Perfect Sofa

Buying the perfect sofa doesn't need to stress you out.  Follow our easy guide and soon you'll be relaxing on YOUR perfect comfort zone!

1.  Fit, of course, is one of the most important things to consider.  What are the dimensions of the space where you plan to place the sofa?  Do you want to have room for end tables on one or both sides?  If you want a sleep sofa, did you measure to make sure it will have room to open?  Bring your measurements in to Spector Furniture and we will work with you to find the perfect fit.
2.  Finding the perfect fabric can seem like a daunting task, but if you know what kind of use the sofa will be getting, your sales person can help narrow down your choices to something that will work for your needs.  Whether you need to spruce up a formal living room, have a comfortable spot for TV,  a nice place to relax in a sunny room, or something a little more Kid Proof we can help you find what you are looking for.


3. Comfort is a very personal thing.  Only you will know if firm or soft feels best.  We will be happy to show you many different choices in firmness, depth, and seat height until you find your favorite!
4. Make sure your salesperson is knowledgeable about the construction of the sofas in their showroom.  The better it's built, the longer it will last!

Spector Furniture and Mattress Gallery has been furnishing Connecticut homes for over 130 years.  Our sales force (Ken and Howie, also our owners) take pride in helping you to find the perfect fit for your living style and your taste.  Please stop by our showroom and see the quality and customer service that has kept us a Connecticut staple for so long!

Make The Most of Your Space



Are you feeling cramped in your tiny apartment or are you worried that your furniture is too large for your home? Clever pieces and design tips from our furniture store can help you to maximize your space and make your rooms appear more spacious and comfy! Just follow these simple décor tips and you’ll notice instant improvements in your comfort level while at home.

Space-Saving Furniture
Choose furniture pieces that fit your room! Although larger pieces can look great, you might want to consider one large sofa paired with smaller arm chairs to save yourself some room. Plus, it is a good idea to group your furniture away from the wall. It can be tempting to push all of your pieces against the wall to open up more space on your floor, but this actually gives the appearance of a smaller room because your windows can get blocked. Free up more space and group your furniture away from the walls or windows!

Light Colors
Choose light colors for major furniture pieces. Light colors can give your room a lighter, more open feel. Although choosing colors won’t free up more space, you can enjoy a relaxing environment when you pick heavenly, light colors.

The Curtain Trick
Although it may seem like a simple change, this curtain trick can do wonders to open up a room and make it look more finished. Curtain rods that extend past your window frames can allow your curtains to let in more light. Windows can do wonders to make a room appear larger, and by having curtains that extend all the way to the floor, it gives the appearance that your window is larger.

Accent Pieces
When in doubt, accessorize! The best way to add a pop of color to a room is by adding in accent pieces that stand out from the rest of your furniture and colors. Throw pillows with a creative design are a great idea, as well as accent chairs or chests. Hall chests and solid wood chests will look great paired with your existing décor.

Choosing the Right Dresser



Take advantage of the clearances we have right now on a selection of youngAmerica dressers, in several sizes and designs.

Color

Settling on a color and aesthetic to your new dresser is obviously a major part of the process, and it’s best to think of the dresser’s potential look in relation to other items in the room that will remain in there for a long time, much like a new dresser would. Considering which colors match or would look pleasant beside other items that will not be leaving that room is a great way to narrow down which colors would work best for a new dresser.
Also, unless this dresser is a temporary fixture, it’s usually best to go for something less of a timely, trendy look, and more of a timeless, classic design. 

Size

When choosing a size for your new dresser, try to pick a size that isn’t too small so the room feels empty, but not so big that the room feels overcrowded. Often times, placing something like newspaper on the floor of the room around other existing furniture will help you visualize how best to fit a new dresser into that space, and will give you a much better sense of space depth of various items and walls in your room.
