Home is where the heart is, and like anything can feel the effects of age over time. Time can affect the look (what was once in style, may not be anymore), overall structure and space (family expansion may cause reconsideration on the amount of rooms necessary in the home).

 

Here are elements/areas of the home to be mindful of which are prone to getting outdated:

‘Popcorn Ceilings
This nubby treatment gave ceilings everywhere a textured look through the mid-20th century—and provided a challenge to anyone trying to clean cobwebs from the upper corners of a room. Despite their current lack of popularity, popcorn ceilings are still around today in lots of homes, because removal of these ceilings, some of which contain asbestos, can be expensive, messy, and potentially health threatening.

Honey Oak Cabinets
A staple in kitchens of the 1980s and ’90s, these golden-toned wood cabinets have fallen out of favor as white and gray cabinets have risen in popularity. If you don’t like your light-stained cabinets, but they’re in good shape, consider refinishing or painting what’s there.

Dark Wood Paneling
Dark wood paneling was so popular in the 1960s and ’70s that it was once nearly almost impossible to avoid in any neighborhood. Today, while many homeowners have phased out the dark and dreary feature in favor of neutral or brightly painted drywall, paneling remains in plenty of homes that haven’t been remodeled in decades. If you have real wood paneling, consider bleaching or painting over it to freshen it up. If, however, the walls are covered by sheets of wood-look panels, pull them off now!’ (source: bobvila.com)
