Developing an inviting and tranquil place can be carried out cheaply. By just doing most of the job yourself is one to save plenty. To finish the patio make-over decorate it using climate protected garden furniture. Examine different home catalogues for patio ideas or check on the internet at pictures and patio designs.
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.
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.
So if most of the time you have to spend in your patio is going to be at night, it only makes sense to design the patio so its a great place to be at night. This means you'll do things a bit differently than if you were designing it for the day, though almost all of these ideas work perfectly well for daytime use.
There are wide varieties of patio ideas and designs available that is suitable for any type of property, regardless of its style of architectural design, size or colour. You just need to know where to start searching for ideas and inspiration.
What type of weather you have is also important as the patio must be made out of something that is durable for the conditions. If you live in a place where there is either extreme cold or hot weather, you may want to consider covering and protecting your new patio as much as possible. It is amazing how much damage both hot and cold weather can do to rock and almost any other material you may choose to make your patio design idea out of.
You may like a patio water garden or an outdoor kitchen. It doesn't matter. Just decide on a main theme once you have a few things you want in mind. Then start to fit everything into the patio design around the theme. Where do you like to put the furniture? What materials will you use? Will a lighting change the ambiance? Try different arrangements to make sure the outdoor patio ideas you gathered work out to be what you want.
