Make the most of the Travel Ban


Recent research which questioned Brits on their revised plans for Summer 2020, revealed that two thirds will not travel abroad this Summer even if government guidelines permit, with only 16% stating they would be happy to travel overseas amidst the pandemic.

With one fifth of respondents saving between £3,000 – £5,000 and one third saving in excess of £8,000 due to cancelled trips abroad, Brits are now planning to invest their holiday budget into home improvements and it comes as no surprise that almost half will opt to use the budget on their gardens and outdoor living, creating their very own holiday at home.


When designing a garden, people are keen for covered areas that provide flexible shade and shelter, enabling them to make the most of their outdoor living space come rain or shine. At Caribbean Blinds we have helped consumers across the country transform the use, functionality and enjoyment from their gardens for over 30 years with our innovative outdoor living solutions, including our waterproof patio awnings and award-winning all weather gazebos.

With the start of Summer just under a month away (although we would be forgiven thanks to the glorious weather for thinking it had already started) and typical order to installation lead times of 3 weeks, there is still time to get your garden prepared in time to enjoy your summer staycation to the full. Why not browse our extensive gallery of installations to be inspired about the various external shading options and how you could upgrade your garden or organise a free estimate and design consultation with one of our knowledgeable advisors.

At Caribbean Blinds we’ve got your 2020 staycation covered.
