What is considered to be normal wear and tear in a rental?

Question Details:

When renting, what is considered normal wear and tear? For example, I have lived in the same place for approximately 10 years and it still has the original paint and carpet. The paint is faded and looks bad. The carpet is worn looking now. Can I be charged for paint and carpet when I leave? The paint and carpet were fairly low quality to begin with.
