Tips from a Toronto Deck-Building Pro: Tip # 10

The Romance of Light

Lighting adds a certain je ne sais quois to your deck and extends its usability into the night. It creates a wonderful and relaxing environment in which to enjoy a late supper, a chat with friends, or just a relaxing respite from your day.

Plan on the lighting from the outset because many of the best lighting solutions can be built in so need to be considered at the design stage. You also have to budget for it. Many of the best lighting solutions are built into the deck posts or stairs and offer subtle indirect light that will have you out 
sipping cocktails until the wee hours of the morning.
