With overflowing boxes of decorations and sports equipment of children long grown, garages can become the physical manifestation of our chaotic lives. But with help, they can be more than just a dingy, anxiety-provoking storage units. And since many use their garage everyday, it makes sense to treat the room to the makeover it deserves. When intentionally designed with space-saving products, garages can become a delightful part of your everyday life. From a laser that helps you park to a hydraulic lift, here are six products that can elevate your home's garage experience. 

The garage used to be the most neglected part of the home, typically serving as storage for vehicles, holiday decorations, and buyer’s remorse purchases. But more and more, people are recognizing that a well-appointed garage can help you stay organized and increase your property's resale value.
