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.
This is not a small project, and definitely not one to take lightly. You do not want to make any errors, because it can cost you time, effort and money.

Gather samples and compare them to each other. You are bound to come up with amazing patio ideas.
If you need patio ideas that involve some sort of covering, you'll have plenty to choose from.
