Don't just leave your bike on the floor. Store it in a creative manner!

Homeowners have varying interests from sports and other activities. This can be seen in their homes and the different spaces that they need in order to perform some tasks related to their work and to their interests. In some cases, they even require a separate shed for it that is why we have sheds for writers, painters, for musicians and even for sports equipment. Others use one space for multiple purposes like how a garage could also be an area for storing sports equipment including your bicycles.

But not all homes have enough spaces to store a bike- how much more if you have more than one bicycle! While most homeowners keep their bikes in the garage, there are others who look for more creative ways to store it because of the lack of floor area. In truth, there are more than one ways to store your bike and you will surely be pleased to know that you can actually store it in a way that makes it look like an added decoration for the home. So let us take a look at 20 creative bike storage ideas for small spaces below.
