Any homeowner can attest that a house can be a difficult piece of property to maintain. Year after year, many suffer from minor neglect that can go unnoticed. However, there comes a time to rejuvenate an old residence, and The Washington Post recently shared expert tips to initiate the process.

First of all, the news source suggests that the outdoors may be just as important as the interior. Caring for the garden or front yard can have a lasting impact on the impression that guests or prospective buyers get when looking at the home. Not only that, yard work may actually help make a home's architecture more sustainable.

"If a tree overhangs the roof, it does not allow the sun to dry out the roofing materials," expert Tim Bills told the news provider. "It can allow lichen growth, and those can deteriorate the shingles."

When decorating the interior of a home, designers agree that, unless it's very subtle, wallpaper should be replaced with more dignified paint. Floors should all be replaced if carpets have been worn down or hardwood floors have suffered scuffing.

Window treatments should also be updated. Honeycomb cellular shades can both be practical and aesthetic. These shades have been proven to insulate homes during colder months and are available in a wide variety of colors and patterns.
