The garage attached to your home doesn’t have to be a dull, dark and cluttered unusable space. Instead, modernize it by creating some space for added functionality, storage or even entertainment purposes.

These are the most expensive appliances in the home, so sellers might want to take these with them. Some sellers might not part with some items due to sentimental value, like antiques. Light fixtures are often taken by the…
