Caribbean Blinds tells us why its Outdoor Living Pod™ is a must have addition to enable year-round outdoor living
We will all remember the summer of 2020 – COVID-19 lockdown, no overseas travel, amazing weather and a new appreciation for our homes and gardens. Caribbean Blinds enjoyed a surge in sales for its outdoor living solutions but the unique Outdoor Living Pod™ came in to its own.
But it wasn’t just a favourite with the customers – it also attracted the attention of Real Homes magazine and as a result, the team at Caribbean Blinds is enjoying its recent success of a national win at the Real Homes Awards 2020. The Outdoor Living Pod™ won the title of ‘Best Garden Buy’ beating competition from hundreds of entrants as the most superior product in the category.
It was praised by the team of judges who “really rated” the product and “loved its versatility”. It was overwhelmingly voted for by the public, many who were past customers and were thrilled with their experience of having one of the pods in their gardens.
To be in with a chance of winning the Real Homes Award, there was a strict criterion for selection and products needed to stand out in multiple areas. The Outdoor Living Pod™ ticked all of the following criteria from the judging panel:
- Offer new and unique features that set it apart from its competitors.
- Offer greater comfort than its competitors.
- Needs to be durable and well-built, to last and perform in the long term.
- Need to look great.
- Must offer good value for money.
One of the biggest benefits of the Outdoor Living Pod™ is that it adds an extra ‘room’ to the home and or/garden that can be used all year round and can be used in conjunction with other outdoor features such as outdoor kitchens, hot tubs, swimming pools, home gyms etc. It can also be adapted to the personal needs and preferences of each customer.
The rotating louvered roof provides a flexible, adaptable, all-weather covering to the living space that gives the user complete control of the elements 365 days a year, so as the summer draws to an end, they don’t have to leave their outdoor life behind until next year.
So what are its key features?
As specialists in outdoor living, Caribbean Blinds has engineered this modern pergola to endure all weather conditions and equipped it with the essential cold season features to create the prefect, warm and ambient setting to take users through the year.
All the models have been specifically designed with automated features to provide flexibility of use, making it simple and easy to function at the swift touch of a button.
Its main feature, the louvered roof, can rotate to any precise point so that you can have sun, shade or shelter when and as you need it. A feature of the Prestige model means the roof louvers can also slide for the ultimate open air, alfresco experience.
The roof is weather sealed when closed, with an integrated guttering system within the structure to drain away the rain, keeping the dedicated outdoor living area dry. The winter essential optional extras ensure that users can stay comfortable throughout the year, even on the coldest of December days. The warm infrared heaters will keep the space underneath cosy, whilst the dimmable LED lighting will create a well-lit, ambient setting. If space needs completely closing off from the elements, the weatherproof side screens can be deployed to provide extra protection from driving wind, rain and even snow.
What makes this Outdoor Living Pod™ extra special is that it is custom made, bespoke to individual client’s requirements and the Deluxe model can be linked to cover spaces of all sizes. Furthermore its modular design means it can be continually added to; for example, clients can initially have the structure and, at a later stage, add the desired options when budgets permit or their use of the outdoor space changes.
With an unparalleled wealth of experience in the external shading and outdoor living sector, the team at Caribbean Blinds continually pushes the boundaries of design and manufacture and has a solution for all projects, large or small, simple or complex.
