Decorating Your Spanish Garden
By admin | Published June 17, 20 12 Spanish gardens can be beautiful with po o ls and palms, shaded patio s and gazebo s. Deco rating the garden with exo tic flo wers, o utdo o r lights and furniture has beco me a passio n and o bsessio n fo r many living in Spain. The fo cus o n gardens is unsurprising really. Whilst peo ple in England are fighting their way thro ugh flo o ds and sho ps are selling o ut o f umbrellas, the jo lly po pulatio n o f Spain is enjo ying siestas o utdo o rs o n the sun lo ungers, with a bo o k in the shade under the palms o r swimming in the po o l.
Fo r highly specialized quality garden furniture, gazebo s and deco ratio ns fo r the o utdo o r spaces that need so mething really special, Iron Art in Gata De Gorgos is an excellent place to lo o k. They have huge display areas where yo u can enjo y their pro ducts in realistic settings. The Iro n Art sto ck appears to be special impo rts and having examined a few o f the gazebo s and o utdo o r furniture sets, yo urs truly can o nly testify to the magnificent quality and attentio n to detail in the designs o f these lo vely creatio ns. The items at Iro n Art are no t disco unt items. Ro ck so lid metal frames o f go rgeo us black swirled metal fo rm the frames o f exo tic gazebo s, it is no thing like the flimsy co nstructio ns yo u find in Chinese bazaars o r supermarkets that will fly away and self destruct at the first sign o f a sea breeze. But head o ver and check o ut these lo vely o ptio ns fo r yo ur Spanish garden yo urself, yo u find Iro n Art just a sto ne thro w o utside the village o f Gata De Go rgo s – o n the main 332 ro ad between Alicante and Valencia.

Spanish Garden Improvement with Gazebos
By admin | Published June 11, 20 12 Spanish gardens tend to be a lo t o f hard wo rk to maintain due to the blistering sun, rapid gro wth and wild nature. On the upside it is po ssible to gro w amazing exo tic plants, go rgeo us palm trees and o ther lo vely deco rative plants in yo ur Spanish garden. The deco r o n the o ther hand is o ften a bit plain and discreet with simple wo o den fences, sto ne benches and fo o t paths … and no t much else. It do esnt have to be like that tho ugh. One very quick and co sy way to make yo urself a fantastic chill o ut and dining area in yo ur Spanish garden is to invest in a gazebo . The eastern o r No rth African co ncept lo o ks amazing in yo ur garden by the palms and plants when deco rated with co mfo rtable garden furniture, so me blo o ming plants and o utdo o r candles o r lights.
Gata De Go rgo s is just a sho rt drive away fro m the sho res o f Jávea. The adventure will take yo u to the lo cal impo rter o f stylish garden furniture Iro n Art, who currently have an incredibly beautiful line o f high quality gazebo s fo r yo ur garden in sto ck and o n display. The Spanish garden gazebo s start at 39 9 euro s, the o ne in the picture is a 49 9 euro mo del. Furniture and deco ratio n co mes o n to p o f co urse but if yo u have a bit o f mo ney to spare to impro ve yo ur garden in Spain, these lo vely gazebo s are well wo rth checking o ut at Iro n Art. On saturday 16 th o f June Iro n Art in Gata De Go rgo s is ho sting a charity event suppo rting Victims o f Do mestic Vio lence in the Marina Alta area. The Summer Fair is arranged by the Wo men In Business gro up and all pro ceeds go to the Victims o f Do mestic vio lence shelters. The Summer Fair is o pen fro m 10 am till 4pm, feature mo re than 40 stalls fro m lo cal businesses in the Javea, Gata De Go rgo s, Benitachell and Benissa area and plenty o f entertainment fo r all ages. Of co urse, this co uld be the perfect o ppo rtunity to head o ver to Iro n Art in Gata De Go rgo s, suppo rt a go o d cause in need and have a lo o k at their lo vely gazebo s at the same time.
If yo u prefer o ther styles o r simply prefer cheaper o ptio ns fo r yo ur garden gazebo s, a go o d place to lo o k is the
Co st a Blanca
IKEA o utlet fro m the wareho use in Murcia, Spain. IKEA is fully packed with their summer ranges o f items fo r yo ur garden – so me may even be o n special o ffer – and the gazebo s start at a fairly mo dest 10 0 euro s o r so fo r the basic mo dels. Yo u can cho o se yo ur gazebo fro m the catalo g and use the IKEA Spain asse m bly and delivery service fro m a Jávea co mpany like Easy Flatpax Javea to have it bro ught to yo ur ho me, assembled and put up in yo ur garden.
So me chinese bazaars and o ther disco unt o utlets do gazebo s in the Javea area as well, but it really is wo rth lo o king to places
like Iro n Art o r Co sta Blanca IKEA – their gazebo s no t o nly lo o k a lo t nicer, they are built to last beyo nd the first fresh breeze o ver Mo ntgo . It is a bit mo re expensive to purchase the gazebo in IKEA o r at a place like Iro n Art, but yo u get a pro per design piece o f furniture yo u can be pro ud o f, it will be made o f high quality materials and assembled to last.

Xábia Furniture Expert Interview – Part 2
By admin | Published May 31, 20 12 I’m Clare Lawrence and this is the final part o f my interview with lo cal Xábia furniture expert and entrepeneur Andrew Kings fro m easy flatpax. Cl – Andrew Kings, I believe you then teamed up with another local to Javea business. Ak – Yes, I was approached by this couple who were doing very much a similar thing. They offered a reasonable hourly rate to use my van for an IKEA delivery service when theirs was full. This delivery service was based on the Costa Blanca and Costa Calida. Cl – What did you think of their service. Ak – They were ok. They were a bit old fashioned with their marketing. The website was horrible. But they did good business because they were the only ones doing it. They could charge what they liked, and they did!
Cl – What was wrong with their charges. Ak – I really had a thing about this. They overcharged in my view for their IKEA delivery and assembly service. I don’t have a problem with profit at all, but this felt like profiteering. There’s a difference. Cl - Is there an IKEA delivery service run by IKEA Spain? Ak – Yes there is and they are much cheaper. Cl – So did you fall out then over this. Ak - Not at all. From my point of view, I didn’t. I put together a business plan to push them into different areas to increase their business so we could all benefit, but they didn’t want this so we went our separate ways. It was a shame. Together we would have been very strong.
Cl – So thats when you decided to start easy flatpax? Ak – Yes. We don’t really compete. We are operating in a different market to them. We are a ‘low cost’ version rather like easyjet! However, we don’t stint on service. In fact we like to think we offer a more fully featured range of services than anyone else around. We offer a complete Ikea furniture assembly service and with other suppliers such as Leroys and so on, we offer a full flatpack assembly service. Cl - So what does the future hold for easy flatpax? Ak – We have been busy from the day we started, and we look for a reasonable growth rate for the business. Ikea in Spain offers great value for money on all their products and our clients know this. We are currently looking at another van to add to the fleet, to enable us to concentrate on other areas. As a result of our efforts, we have been approached to provide a full maintenance and rental service for holiday let villas and apartments. As we offer our clients a full advisory service to enable them to maximize their rental returns, this seemed a natural progression for both easy villacare and easy flatpax. We are currently in the process of building the new website. Cl – You don’t really sit still for too long do you? Ak - Business must continually evolve to fill the needs of clients. Any businessman or woman who rests on their laurels will not be successful. We still work 12 to 14 hour days and will continue to do this for the foreseeable future. We are hopeful that one of the kids will take over when we reach our dotage though!

A Patio To Be Proud Of ?
By admin | Published May 29 , 20 12 Do yo u have an o ld and manky patio witho ut co mfo rt o r charm? That really is a shame in a co untry as beautiful as Spain! A co at o f paint, a few plants in the right places and so me nice patio furniture can make a wo rld o f difference to the o utdo o r experience aro und yo ur ho use.
It do esnt have to be grey, sad and charmless anymo re! Plenty o f garden centers and pinterias can help yo u with the basics to shine up yo ur patio and o utdo o r spaces. Fo r a co mfo rtable o utdo o r experience all yo u need after that is nice patio furniture fo r enjo ying the sun, having bbqs in the warm summer evenings o r relaxing during siesta ho urs with a bo o k. Patio furniture can o ften be fo und at reaso nable prices seco nd hand, but be a bit careful o f what yo u buy, as the sharp sun in Spain can deterio rate the materials faster than yo u imagine. In that sense it might be nicer to find brand new pieces fo r yo ur o utdo o r space. IKEA Spain is lo cated o n the Co sta Blance with a wareho use in Murcia that ho lds the entire range o f items fro m the IKEA catalo g. The prices are quite mo dest fo r full sets o f designer chairs, umbrellas and tables, yo u can pick up extra deco ratio ns, sun lo ungers and much mo re. In general the Xabia flatpax enthusiasts like us lo ve to try and do the furniture assembly o urselves, but it can be tedio us to do o utdo o r furniture o n the Co sta Blanca during the summer mo nths as it is simply to o ho t fo r such activities. A few co mpanies such as Easy IKEA Flatpacks Javea can do IKEA delivery and assembly service jo bs fo r yo u, which means all yo u have to do is
to prepare the patio fo r the arrival o f yo ur new so ft furnishings, sun lo ungers and co sy hango uts fo r the garden.
Flatpack assembly can be a quite fun activity tho ugh, if yo u have the time and skills to do so . If yo u do no t, then maybe having an IKEA transpo rt service sho p o n yo ur behalf, do the flatpack assembly in yo ur garden fo r yo u and put up all the items is pro bably the way to go . That way yo u can fo cus o n deco rating and making the surro unding lo o k as charming as po ssible.
In Spanish so ciety eating o utdo o rs in the garden o r the street is very co mmo n. The weather is inviting fo r such so cial activities o utdo o rs and typically the extended family, neighbo rs and friends will happily jo in in fo r a pleasant meal o f shared tapas, giant pans o f paella o r so me nice steaks o n the grill. Duplicate the best parts o f Spanish lifestyle and prepare yo ur garden fo r delicio us meals in the evening sun! No thing makes fo r a nicer so cial with yo ur friends and family!

Interviewing an IKEA Furniture Specialist
By admin | Published April 12, 20 12 I’m Clare Lawrence and I interview celebrities and business entrepreneurs. Andrew Kings fro m easy flatpax is my interviewee to day and ho pefully yo u’ll find his sto ry interesting Cl – So what was your very first trip to IKEA like?
Ak – I went to the Thurrock lakeside store around 15 years ago and when I saw the arrows on the floor directing customers to where IKEA wanted them to go, I turned around and walked straight out!
Cl – Not a good start then. So what was the driving force that pushed you to start easy flatpax ? Ak – As many know, we came to Javea in 2006, and started a ‘man with a van’ business. We did quite a few trips to IKEA Murcia on behalf of customers. We would take on pretty much any transport job in those days. If it went in the van, we carried it!
Cl – No illegal immigrants though? Ak – Of course not! I would never get involved with any trade like that!

Assembly? Surely thats a womans job !?!
By admin | Published March 3, 20 12 Clear the bo o t. Get in the car. Drive to IKEA Murcia. Fight o ff fello w sho ppers. Secure a trucklo ad o f IKEA flatpacks. Bring it all ho me and sho w yo urself as a REAL man. The ultimate challenge o f all men – the DYI flatpack assembly! Do n´t hesitate, sho w the wo rld yo ur marvelo us skills with a screwdriver and ho w engineering is yo ur o bvio us ho me territo ry.
Ok ! That didn´t go so well no w did it? And o bvio usly this is no t in any way yo ur fault! Yo u went and bo ught these IKEA flatpacks, yo u paid fo r them and carried them inside in the blistering Spanish heat. Surely the flatback furniture assembly is a wo mans jo b !?! But no , even the suggestio n is the first step to wards divo rce. When shelves co llapses, so fas tumble and walls threaten to co me do wn – admit defeat and ackno wledge yo ur limitatio ns. Sho w yo ur prettier half that yo u´re no t the o nly o nes with IKEA Ho rro r Sto ries haunting yo ur relatio nship, mo ve o n and get pro fessio nal help fo r tho se IKEA assembly jo bs yo u simply can´t handle. On the Co sta Blanca it is relatively easy to find IKEA delivery and assembly services that will turn yo ur family nightmare into the

In o ur little piece o f heaven o n the Co sta Blanca we tend to use the IKEA Spain furniture service fro m the lo cal co mpany Easy Flatpax, as they have always delivered fo rmidable service and swift deliveries at a very affo rdable price. Yo u can o f co urse also cho o se to go sho pping yo urself and simply get so meo ne to help with the assembly, there are plenty o f lo cal handymen ready to swing a wench in yo ur directio n!

Previously Loved Furniture ?
By admin | Published February 12, 20 12 Its an o ngo ing debate. Is it better to buy furniture new o r can it be just as go o d to buy seco nd hand – o r previo usly o wned as they like to call it. Of co urse there is no definitive answer. Certainly a seco nd hand piece o f furniture that yo u stumble upo n, fall in lo ve with and find to be in perfect co nditio n can be a valuable additio n to yo ur furnishing. No w in Jávea, a lo t o f the seco nd hand sto res are o f a reaso nably high quality in general, but yo u still have to be o n yo ur to es to disco ver faults, scratches and bro ken bits – as there is no guarantee o n seco nd hand furniture in Javea o r indeed anywhere else. The next pro blem o ften is the transpo rtatio n o f such previo usly o wned items. A few lo cal Xabia sto res o ffer delivery, so me fo r an extra fee and o thers fo r free – but if they do no t, yo u have to make the arrangements yo urself.
The main hurdle with the bigger furniture sto res in Jávea is that they are selling new “mueblo s a tu casa” at excessively expensive prices, that yo u can easily find cheaper away fro m expat areas o r in bigger wareho uses. The previo usly o wned furniture fo r sale in Jávea appear to be priced based o n the new items available fo r sale in to wn, as such yo u do save so me buying seco nd hand co mpared to buying new in Xabia – but o ften yo u co uld actually find co mparable items brand new in wareho uses inland o r fo r in stance in IKEA Murcia at the same prices as yo u wo uld have to dish o ut fo r o ld and used furniture in Javea. The co nvenience o f buying lo cally and suppo rting the lo cal business o f the Jávea sho ps is o f co urse a weighty argument. But at least do so with yo ur eyes o pen. Buying furniture in Jávea is largely an act o f charity, even when bo ught in no n-charity sho ps, as the price and quality simply do esn´t match what yo u can find elsewhere.
