Deck Lighting Installation

Properly organized deck lighting ensures a comfortable and safe stay on it.

Lamps perform two tasks at once. The first is aesthetic. Main space lighting or point light sources emphasize the architectural features of the terrace, zone the space. With their help, you can create a cozy atmosphere, focus on decorative elements.

The second is safety at the night time. With lamps, you can move around the terrace even at night without the risk of injury.

Delta Decks implements various deck lighting ideas in Toronto. When installing lamps, we take into account the landscape, the size of the room, the wishes of customers, which we reflect in the design project. We work in both the private and commercial sectors.

The best lighting options for your deck

When developing deck lighting design, you can use different types of lamps. The most popular among them:

  • Spot Lights. These are mainly ceiling lamps, but they can also be mounted on walls, roofs, and even trees and shrubs. The light is wide, bright and directed downwards for increased safety. In addition, such lamps are also used as exterior deck lighting, making the space around it comfortable.
  • Ground Lights. These are ground spotlights that are used to illuminate paths, stairs, pergolas, etc. They are ideal if there is no overhead lighting. At the same time, the light is directed upwards, so it can be used to focus attention on specific areas, for example, to emphasize the “green corner”, arrange a place for a solitary conversation, etc.
  • Path Lights. They are used to illuminate garden paths, paths, driveways. Downlight is suitable for the garden. Softer light comes from tall fixtures – they are good for illuminating paths.
  • Post and Wall lights. As a rule, this is decorative landscape deck lighting. Lanterns can be placed on railing posts. For them, soft, unobtrusive, subdued light is usually chosen.
  • Surface Lights. These are LED lamps that are suitable for stairs, pergolas. Each of them gives a lot of light. You can install lamps separately and in groups. They also make out paths, driveways.
  • Main lighting. These lamps are placed, as a rule, in the center of the terrace, gazebo or patio. Their task is to illuminate the space of the terrace as best as possible so that you can comfortably do your favorite things and spend time at the table.

In addition, LED strips are used to decorate spaces. They are cheaper than other types of fixtures, but they are hardly suitable for spacious terraces. They can be fixed around the perimeter of a small gazebo or other building for outdoor recreation, and can also be used as an additional light source.

What to choose for organizing lighting for patios and decks? It depends on many factors: your goals and preferences, the structure itself, its area, etc. Consult with deck contractors – we will do everything to make you have a comfortable and cozy space to relax.

What are the best lighting options for a deck, patio, or gazebo?

Delta Decks has been building and decorating terraces, gazebos and patios since 2005. See examples of work done to get inspired or choose something similar.

Our company works with lighting fixtures of the In-lite brand. We mainly install:

Integrated lights. It looks like small light bulbs, usually round in shape, which are mounted directly into the deck board or steps. This is the most popular type of outdoor lighting. Bulbs create an unobtrusive light, can be used to illuminate decorative elements.
Step lights. These are built-in low-voltage small lamps that are installed in the vertical parts of the steps through one. Their main task is not to let you fall when moving in the dark.
Post lights. Luminaires can be placed on top of the post and on the side of it, thus providing more light.
Each of them can be used both for a gazebo and as backyard deck lights.

Delta Decks did a beautiful job on our backyard deck and patio. Our old deck was in dire need of a rebuild and refresh. Elgi was great in getting the project started and Dimitri and his team were amazing to work with throughout the project. They were extremely customer focused and detail oriented, even suggesting improvements that we had not considered. I would highly recommend this company.

Delta Decks replaced my very worn old wood deck with a mineral based/pvc ‘Deckorators’ product, color ‘Costa’. Finding a taupe color was a challenge but this came close to the rest of the wood decks I still have and I did not like the grays of most other products. They did an excellent job.

I am very satisfied with the improvements that Delta Decks made to my 12 year old deck. From my first contact with Elgi, the project manager ,to the final clean up of the jobsite I could not ask for better treatment. All my pre job questions were thoroughly answered and the advice given improved the final look of my deck. The 3 man job crew was terrific. Each of them was very professional and very conscientious. They made me feel that they wanted me to be very satisfied with their work. They answered any questions I had and they did a very good job of cleaning up before they left. A job well done.

This review has been a long time coming. We had Elgi and team come in on September 2021 and after some talks about designs and materials we ended up going with a Fiberon deck. His crew was polite, neat and worked very quickly. The deck looks beautiful and the lighting on the stairs really compliments the design. Thanks so much Elgi & team, It was a pleasure working with you!

Recently had a very pleasant interaction with the team at Delta Decks. I am planning to build a pool deck and Alex is handling the entire process with a great attention to detail. I have very specific needs for installers, and Alex was easy to work with, professional and delivered things on time. I am confident the project will be done impeccably and on an agreed price.

Elgi and his team were wonderful! Elgi is very knowledgeable and he didn't try to upsell us. He understood our needs, gave us good advice and we didn't feel pressured. He was very responsive and accommodating. The craftsmanship on the deck is excellent and we can't be more happy with how it turned out. Covid had caused some delays but the project was still completed within a reasonable time. Overall we were very happy using Delta Decks.

We are very happy with our new deck completed by Delta decks. From the first consultation with Elgi, our project manager we were very impressed with the professionalism and advice we received for the initial design of the deck. We then went to their spectacular showroom where we were able to pick from the several different options of colors and materials. The deck was completed with high attention to detail, and excellent workmanship. The two carpenters, Alex and Alex completed the job on time and on budget with no issues whatsoever. Several design changes were suggested along the way, and constant contact by Elgi ensured the final project was better than what we could have ever imagined. Their price was also very reasonable, after consulting with several deck builders we're so glad we went with Delta decks and highly recommend them!
