ShadeFX Spotlight: Royal Decks Enhancing Outdoor Spaces

Building a deck or patio is the first step in creating a wonderful outdoor space for your home. Not only does it increase the living and entertaining footprint, but it is also one of the most sensible home improvement projects. A relatively low budget can result in great value added to the property.

It’s important to consider the overall quality, usability, and attractiveness a deck or patio will deliver. Royal Decks and Landscapes has built a reputation of proving the investment is worth every penny. A decking company servicing Ontario, their specialty is customizing outdoor spaces to fulfill all of their customer’s wants and needs.

It starts with the design. A functional backyard will naturally flow from space to space. Royal Decks presents a 3D rendering, bringing the project to life and immersing their clients into the outdoor living space. Once a design has been tweaked and approved, their highly skilled team work together exceeding expectations while maintaining timelines and budgets.

ShadeFX has had the pleasure of partnering with Royal Decks across many projects over the years. Here are a few unique designs and builds by Royal Decks and Landscapes that have their customers enjoying the value and beauty of their new spaces.


Narrow space packs a big punch with all the amenities one needs to fully enjoy their backyard.

This narrow Toronto property required a layout that flowed effortlessly from one space to the next. The homeowners desired a backyard that included a protected hot tub, dining table, bar area, barbecue, fire feature and outdoor lounging space. The design features a step-down deck and cantilevered pergola with a large retractable canopy, completing the blue urban oasis.

Privacy, Please!

With the addition of privacy curtains and our versatile canopy, these homeowners have the power of seclusion or inclusion.

Royal Decks defined this modern area using PVC decking and a stained timber pergola with integrated lighting. By creating an outdoor room with a warming fireplace for comfort, privacy was a necessity for this space. When extended, the retractable canopy provides sun and rain protection. For a dreamy evening, the canopy can retract exposing the moonlit sky. The vertical blinds add privacy from curious neighbors, almost entirely enclosing this cozy outdoor space.

Rise Above

Royal Decks integrated metal, wood and glass for a modern and stylish, raised deck.

Surrounded by towering trees and shrubs, Royal Decks customized a raised composite deck to sit amongst the greenery. The well-designed deck includes a dining area, a comfortable lounging area, outdoor fireplace, and barbecue station. The spaces are defined using architectural structures fitted with a permanent roof, and a retractable canopy. The stairways and structures have integrated lighting which increases safety in this lush setting.

Yin and Yang

A great mixture of creativity and design, giving this backyard flair and functionality.

This project is a great example of Royal Decks ingenuity. The cedar deck and paver interlocking, although very different, complement each other in this backyard design. The timber pergola with retractable canopy defines and establishes a seating area while the lighting contours the fine line of a seamless integration. The dazzling fireplace and lighting add ambience on a beautiful evening.

Spending time outdoors on a splendid afternoon, while enjoying the company of family and friends, is certainly worth the investment of building a new deck or patio. As shown above, Royal Decks and Landscapes have the skills and creativity to conquer any backyard overhaul.
