Here's another peek at the same porch. If you look closely you can see another charming exterior décor detail, the crescent moon cutouts on the shutters.

2. Welcome visitors with an inviting porch. Even if you have only a tiny stoop, make it say “welcome home” with a clean doormat, potted plants in bloom and — if you have room — one or two pieces of neat porch furniture. Keep your porch lights on in the evenings, in case potential buyers drive by. Illuminating the front walk with solar lights is a nice extra touch, especially if you will be showing the house during the evening.

For larger porches, consider using more than one hanging lantern. In a space where multiple seating areas come together, using a separate lantern for each spot helps to define the groupings while adding warm ambience for nighttime gatherings.

1. The wraparound porch. An outdoor living space, the porches was traditionally used as a mudroom or a place for getting respite from the heat when it was too hot inside during the summer. It eventually became a place for enjoying shared moments with family and friends, rocking away the time while taking in the evening air. Get this look: Don’t have a wraparound porch? A porch, patio, balcony or stoop of any size can still help you get the farmhouse look. Rockers and country flowers are classic, but if you’re short on space, a rustic planter filled with wildflowers will set the tone.
