Mattress Buying Guide

Friday, 6 December 2013 17:01:43 Europe/London

Buying a new bed and mattress can be a daunting task. There are so many options out there that it's hard to know where to start. Buying the right size and type of mattress can help you get a good night's sleep and wake up feeling healthy and energized.

This simple guide will give you the basic knowledge you need to make an informed decision when purchasing your next bed or mattress.

Which size should I get?

Standard UK Mattress Size Chart

A lot of beds are advertised as single,double or king, but that doesn't really help much if you're wondering if it's going to fit in your bedroom and need to know the actual dimensions. The image above should help you get some idea of how big each size of mattress actually is and determine whether it will fit your body and bedroom.

Which type of mattress?

Open spring: This is the most common form of mattress that provides a good solution for people on a budget. Their are fewer but larger springs compared to pocket spring mattresses which results in the cheaper productions costs.

Pocket spring: Same idea as the open spring mattress, but the springs are smaller, closer together and housed in their own individual pocket. This allows them to mould to your body shape better and creates less movement if sleeping with a partner.

Memory Foam: As the name implies this foam moulds to your body everytime you lay down for the perfect support. The foam tends to hold heat so you will stay warmer in winter. Very good for orthopaedic support.

Reflex Foam: Moulds to your body just like memory foam but springs back to it's original shape quickly after you move. It is generally firmer than memory foam. Very good for orthopaedic support.

Latex Foam: Natural latex mattresses are great for people that suffer from allergies and are eco-friendly too. They tend to be more durable and offer natural anti-fungi and  anti-bacterial qualities.

It's Chimenea Time!

Thursday, 14 November 2013 11:04:35 Europe/London

It's getting colder and colder outside, which means most people will lock up their doors, never to venture back outside until winter is over. Why let the cold weather stop you from enjoying the outdoors. Eating and drinking outside with family and friends is one of life's greatest joys. 

Add a brand new chimenea to your back garden or patio and get the fire roaring next time you have people over. Sitting around a fire, chatting, eating and drinking brings people closer together. It's almost like having a camp fire in your own backyard, and it's hard to have a bad time being warmed to the core by a crackling fire.

We have a huge range of Chimeneas available to choose from. Everything from traditional hand-made clay and terracotta Chimeneas, to steel and cast-iron. Chimeneas with swivel hotplates and even pizza stones to cook your own wood-fired pizzas at home. So whether your looking to just add some warmth to your entertaining area, or you want to cook up a big barbequed meal for your friends, this versatile little invention will not let you down. 

Here's a few pointers to follow when choosing your new chimenea:

Clay:

  • Perfect for the rustic, traditional mexican look in your own backyard.
  • Ready to use straight out of the box.
  • Your going to need to look after it; protect it from freezing temperature in winter, the regular use the paint will eventually fade. Which can look even more authentic, but will require re-painting to maintain it's 'new' look.
  • They're handmade, so measurements, colours and patterns are close but not exact.

Cast-Iron:

  • Suitable for any type of fuel and won't crack in the winter.
  • Will last for years and years.
  • Cast-iron is very heavy! So there's less chance of it getting knocked over and breaking.
  • Slow to heat up, but when it does it stays hot for much longer than steel chimeneas.
  • Will require maintainence to protect from rust. Or just leave it if you want an authentic look.
  • Requires a bit of assembly.

Steel:

  • Much lighter than cast-iron; easier to move and set up.
  • Heats up and cools down much quicker than clay or cast-iron.
  • Will require maintainence to protect from rust. Or just leave it if you want an authentic look.
  • Requires a bit of assembly.

 

So there you have it!

Now that you've decided which chimenea is suitable for you all you have to do now is browse Chimeneas Galaxy, pick your favourite design and have it delivered for free in time for your next get together.

Autumn Has Arrived

Autumn Leaves

Fight back against the falling leaves!

It's been a birght, sunny Summer but unfortunately all good things must come to an end. With shorter days and freezing temperatures on the way, trees don't have much use for their leaves anymore . So what do they do? They drop them all over your yard. Sure it makes life easier for them, but it creates a whole lot of extra work for you.

Why not get that work over and done with as possible and spend the time you saved sitting inside by the nice warm fire with a hot drink in your hand.

Don't strain yourself raking leaves manually, use a leaf blower to get the job done in a fraction of the time.

Mirror mirror on the wall...

Wednesday, 28 August 2013 23:20:27 Europe/London

Right now at Galaxy Stores we're getting rather excited over mirrors! Personally I’m in search of the perfect mirror and have been reflecting; no pun intended, on just how much myself, and the population in general, relies on them whether this be for function or aesthetic appeal.

Society as a whole is becoming more and more aware of our own self-image. You never know when your face will be exposed by social media subconsciously sparking the feeling that you want to appear your best at all times; therefore a mirror is without a doubt a home essential!

On the other hand, from an interiors point of view, the use of mirrors can be considered a real game changer and give the impression of space, opening up the smallest most unforgiving of rooms.

Mirrors are becoming more and more a substitute for art work in the home, and to some degree an art in themselves. It's no longer just about the functionality of the mirror as a means of seeing your own reflection but having something aesthetically pleasing to look at, at statement piece which can often create or encourage a particular 'look' within a room based on the scale, style and design of the mirror itself.

Here are our top 10 Galaxy Stores mirrors, from the small and practical to the bold and elegant, and everything else in between, to add a touch of magic to any space.

...Mirror mirror on the wall, you are the best investment of them all!
