You can just replace an old light fixture with a nice modern one or swap dated drawer pulls and cabinet knobs with the stylish ones that a more sought-after in your area.
- Replace wall art with mirrors- People have varying tastes in art, so hide all your prominent paintings or art photographs when staging a house in Arlington unless you are sure they have broad appeal. Replace the pieces with a large mirror on one or two key walls. Mirrors are great because they maximize light to make rooms appear bigger and brighter
- Roll up rugs- A lot of homebuyers in Arlington love hardwood floors. So, don't hide your woods unless they are a mess or you have classic and pristine rugs.
- Set the table- Elaborate table settings can look overly staged but you can use a simple modern setting by going for modern white plates, sleek stainless-steel cutlery, and stemless wine glasses atop neutral-hued placemats to a tablecloth. You can also add some vibrant napkins to add some colors to the room.
- Add a metallic accent- You can make your home in Arlington look more luxurious and contemporary by adding one or two metallic accessories such as a silver leather throw pillow, a bronze side table, or a copper tray.
