Determine your style:  do you want an elegant or just a formal style or maybe you want a casual atmosphere? Or maybe you might want an open concept beside a pool that will allow you in hosting a party? 

Think about the shape: you can have a traditional square or maybe a free form patio that will depend on your space. Or you might want to imply a formal feel with rectangle and square shape or maybe a curve shape for a little informal look. Just make sure you have extra space left for sitting and walking through your new outdoor space. 

Adding amenities: you might want to consider adding an arbor or a pergola and lighting too. Amenities can provide relaxation and ambiance that will enhance the mood and feel of your pace. 

Hire professionals: once your plan has been made, hire a trusted landscape designer. A skilled and experienced designer could translate your ideas into a patio design that is best for you and will also suggest the best materials to be used for your patio. 

Personalize it: decorate it with your own style, adding different kinds of flowering plants could be great or maybe adding a bird feeder or maybe a furniture for your comfort.
