1) Light the way. The most basic part of the night patio is light. White Christmas string lights are a great solution, and there are also lots of unusual string lights, or bistro lights if you want something different. Don't forget candles, either, though you'll need tall candle holders to protect them from even a bit of breeze. You do not need so much light that you can read out on the patio, but you do want to be able to see well enough to recognize people, and to make sure your visitors can see where to walk safely. If your patio is at the end of a walkway, that means investing in some good solar path lights.
Create a proposal for your patio. Take into consideration many distinctive patio designs and alternative patio ideas. Plan a location for cooking food, barbequing and restful eating. The outside kitchen area has become the most functional of new patio ideas. You could plan a small outdoor kitchen area or one that is bigger complete with a sink, refrigerator, oven, pizza oven and barbeque.
Wrap up your paper research. It's time to go see the real world. A simple look around your neighborhood will open up your eyes but don't stop there. Public parks and pedestrian malls can inspire you too. Actually seeing how outdoor patio ideas are incorporated into real life designs will help concrete your own idea. You will see how the different types of patio furniture and ground can interact to give you the ambiance you want to create.
Before you get to do the fun part of the project, you need to coordinate and plan your patio project properly. This is a structural project, so you will need a designer or planner to assist you by drawing up the ideas and design that you want. This design needs to show the location and exact measurements of the patio so you can buy the right material in the right sizes and quantities. Only when you are one hundred percent satisfied with your design, can you move on to the shopping.
Patio ideas that include some kind of water feature may enhance any outside living space into a private paradise. The small-scale water feature can create a soothing mood as well as turn into the focal point of one's patio design. The trickling noises of the water are calming. Additionally they bring in birds and butterflies of countless types. A ornamental fountain could be hidden into a nook, constructed into a wall or put into the middle of the patio.
Installing a roof type cover for your patio is a big commitment and of course much more expensive than buying an umbrella or awning. In many cities you will need to get a permit to build that roof patio cover as it is an extension of your house. Unfortunately, the government wants to be involved in everything we do so be sure to check that out before you spend thousands of dollars.
