If you’ve ever stared at your bike wondering where to put it and how you’re going to store it, you’re not alone. Bike storage is a perennial problem that afflicts everyone who finds themselves without the luxury of a garage or other dedicated space.

Even if you have a garage, you’re still faced with the challenge of keeping your beloved two-wheeler out of harm’s way while still having access to it as often as you would like. Fortunately, there are many creative ways to overcome this obstacle. All you need is some bike storage inspo!


Minimalist wooden hanger

This minimalist hanger takes up very little space and is a simple way to display your prized possession. A hanger like this gets the bike out of the way and off the floor, so there’s no fear of tripping over it at night or having it impede other activities around the house.

The rack can be mounted at whatever height you prefer, so you can decide whether to hang it low enough for easy access or high enough that you don’t bump your head every time you walk by.


On the stairs

The railing of an average staircase make for the perfect place to hang a bike by its handlebars and front wheel, especially if the railing is spaced wide enough (at least 2.5 inches) so you can fit a hook between them.

Storing your bike on lesser-used stairs is a brilliant solution for small spaces and homes with limited wall space (or none). The bike is easily accessible, but out of the way when not in use.


Hooks on the ceiling

If you don’t have enough storage space on the floor or wall for your bike, look up instead! Installing hooks in your ceiling is an ideal way to maximize space without compromising on safety. This is an ideal option for people who have high ceilings.

Just make sure the hooks are screwed into a sturdy beam or stud so they can hold the weight of your bike.


No wasted space

Bike storage doesn’t have to mean sacrificing function for style or vice versa. You can find harmony by cleverly incorporating your two-wheeled transpo into other elements of your home.

This bike hanger is perfect for storing bikes in tight spots. Mount it on the wall so you can store your bike vertically, taking up much less space than a traditional horizontal bike rack. Make sure the piece is screwed into something sturdy enough for the weight of your bike, though!


Multi-purpose rack

If you live in the city, chances are good that your apartment has minimal storage space. This means making the most of every corner and surface, including the walls. As one example of this, consider buying a multi-purpose rack that can hold as many bikes as you need. This one supports two bikes side by side and has hooks for other items like coats, hats, bags, helmets, and more.

The right rack can accommodate any size of bike and gives you a choice of different materials and colors to complement your existing décor.


Zoom meeting backdrop

If you have a fancy bike, chances are you like to show it off. One of the best ways to put your two-wheeled pride on display is by using it as a backdrop for work calls or virtual happy hours with friends and family.

It will make you feel like you’re at an outdoor café somewhere in France while everyone else is eating takeout in their pajamas (and what could be classier than that?).


Bike wall art

If you love biking but don't have room for a giant bike poster in your home office, this might be the solution for you. This bike hanger has an artistic feel that adds style and color to any workspace without taking up too much room. The best part is that you can hang it at any height and angle.


Pulley system

A pulley system allows you to hang your bicycle up near your ceiling and lower it down when you need it, and it can even be used with multiple bikes at once. Plus, it's easy to set up and can be placed in any location as long as there's enough height.


Holds more than bikes

For the bike lover who likes to keep things tidy, this bike storage solution is the perfect fit. Not only does this small shelf hold your bike and keep it out of the way, it also allows you to store other items like vases and sunglasses.

Compact, minimalist hooks like this one are a great option if you want something that doesn't take up too much space and looks good in your home.


No-holes solution

Does your rental have a limit on holes in the walls? No worries! Floor stands to store your bike are plentiful these days. This method is simple and quick, and it takes up little space. Better yet, you can easily move it around if you need to rearrange the room.

No drilling or screws are required for this storage method—it's all about balance! It’s the perfect solution for anyone who doesn’t want to have to fill a bunch of big holes or is worried about weight!
