All Weather Outdoor Living Pod™ exclusively from Caribbean Blinds

Outdoor Living PodTM is the exclusive brand name Caribbean Blinds louvered roof pergola canopy is marketed under and as the name suggests, it encompasses what the product provides which is for people who want to live life outdoors. The innovative rotating louvered roof provides a flexible, adaptable, all-weather outdoor living space that gives you complete control of the elements 365 days a year.

Water, wind and snow tight when closed, the aluminium louvers rotate fully at the touch of a button, stopping at the desired position to provide sun or shade along with ventilation from heat build-up beneath. An invisible guttering hidden within the structure framework provides effective drainage of water from the roof. Additionally, on our Prestige model, the roof slides completely open for the ultimate open-air alfresco experience.

Optional heavy-duty roller blinds to the sides, lower to prevent strong breezes and driving rain thanks to the clever locking mechanism that seals the fabric within the side guides, all whilst maintaining the view thanks to the unique mesh fabrics. And optional ambient dimmable LED lighting within the framework and/or roof louvers and instant infra-red heating mounted to the cross beams mean that even when the light level drops or the chill starts to creep in, you can continue to use the Outdoor Living PodTM comfortably.

Finished in an endless array of stunning textured finishes, the Outdoor Living PodTM brings a touch of class to any location and its all aluminium and stainless steel construction ensures it will withstand the bumps and knocks of any environment.

FAQS

  • How much does an Outdoor Living Pod cost?

    All our Outdoor Living Pods are bespoke, made to measure to your exact requirements and therefore the cost varies significantly depending on the model, specification (size, hardware colour…), configuration (freestanding, lean-to…), and mounting detail, along with any options (lighting, heating, side screens…).

    Our Outdoor Living Pods start at £11,990 inc vat, installation & 5 year guarantee upto £39,000+ (single module). To obtain a budget cost for your specific requirements is really simple using our estimate form, where you simply need to upload a photo of your application and some approximate measurements and then one of our estimators will be able to provide you with an accurate cost indication.

  • In the majority of instances, planning permission is not required to install an Outdoor Living Pod at the rear of a residential property, as these fall under permitted development rights. There are some exceptions however, including where your property is located in a conservation, green belt or AONB (area of outstanding natural beauty), your property is listed and where permitted development rights have been removed (usually in historic locations to protect the character of an area).

    Additionally there are certain stipulations on sizing for pergolas under permitted development, which vary dependent on whether the structure is freestanding or lean-to, attached to the property, which limit the height to 2.5m or 3m respectively, when within 2m of the boundary. Furthermore the structure should not take up more than 50% of the overall outdoor space (including all other structures such as garden buildings).

    As every local authority regulations vary, there is no one rule for all, so if you are unsure it is always recommended to check with the local authority.

  • Yes. The roof louvers on our Outdoor Living Pods overlap and interlock with each other when closed to form an entirely watertight along with wind and snow tight covering. Water drains from the roof louvers to the internal guttering system built within the cross beams and to the nominated posts for effective water evacuation.

    It is important to make sure that the internal guttering to the inside of the cross beams is cleaned regularly to allow the water to free flow and prevent water splashing over the guttering in heavy, persistent downpours.

  • Yes. It is perfectly safe to use a coal, wood or gas fired BBQ or fireplace beneath an Outdoor Living Pod. In fact it is extremely common for outdoor kitchens to be installed beneath the structure. The only stipulation is that any flues from for example pizza ovens be positioned a minimum of 0.3m from the underside of the roof louvers and that if the Outdoor Living Pod is fitted with side screens any heat surfaces are kept a minimum of 0.5m from the screen fabrics.

    Additionally with the roof louvers open at 10 degrees, this will allow for ventilation from heat build up and smoke beneath whilst still offering rain shower protection from downwards rain.

Outdoor Living Pod Reviews

Thank you for a great service

Our Outdoor Living Pod is now complete and we are very happy with it. The two guys who erected it, were very pleasant and worked hard. They took time showing us the controls and were very patient with my husband’s questions. I think we had the best of your bunch. Thank you for a great service.

Very happy with the quality of the installation

Thank you for a fantastic product and service. I am very happy with the quality of the installation. I also want to commend the installation team – forgot the names now but they were extremely professional and friendly. This is the best ever service I received – from the quote through to the installation.

Really just excellent

Your service team were just so impressive. A refreshing change when in London. On time, completed tasks (service and checks) super efficient,  smiled all the way through…gave me feedback on how to maintain system.  Really just excellent.

Transformed our swim spa area completely

The outdoor living pod has transformed our swim spa area completely. We are now able to use our swim spa all year round. With the automated louvered roof and blinds, it has provided us with so many options to accommodate the typical British weather.

A wonderful construction which adapts to all weathers

We couldn’t be more delighted with our wonderful new Living Pod, we now have an amazing space outside to sit, relax, cook & entertain. It is a wonderful construction which adapts to all weathers and we never have to cancel a barbeque again due to the rain. Caribbean blinds have been superb throughout the whole process and we cannot recommend them highly enough.

Brilliant addition to the garden we designed

We introduced our client to Caribbean Blinds whilst we were working on a large scale garden landscaping project. Our client was very impressed with the service he received and the quality of the product. On site we found the installation team to be fantastic – they were courteous, hardworking , knowledgeable and very efficient. The canopy was a brilliant addition to the garden we designed and featured heavily in our finished photos which were incredibly popular on our social media. We look forward to the next install of Caribbean Blinds on one of our projects.

Without doubt the feature of our garden

When designing our garden we appreciated that the UK isn’t something we can reply on. We wanted somewhere we could enjoy in the sun, but relax in the rain. After a lot of research we decided to purchase a Caribbean Blind Outdoor Living Pod. They came and surveyed it and when surveying we decided to add a central leg to split the blind up and create a doorway. It was something I’m told they hadn’t done before but was so accommodating. The end product is without doubt the feature of our garden and we couldn’t be happier with the results.

Previously it was a no-go zone

We had this installed earlier in the summer outside our southwest facing bifold doors. It has transformed our kitchen. Previously it was a no-go zone on hot summer days. Now it is cool and shady when it’s hot and we can open up the roof when it is overcast so we still get the light. A much more environmentally friendly solution than an air con system. We are really pleased.
