Having a bike is so important to a lot of people — it's a great source of transport and exercise, pollution-free and just a fun way to explore a city. However, sometimes it can get a little tricky to figure out where in the heck to store it at home, especially in a smaller space. Luckily we've featured some fun tours with accessible bike storage solutions!

If yours is a household with more than one bike it might be a good option to look to your walls for help. Vertical storage is essential with several bikes because they can be hung above each other to minimize clutter, plus it's another wall you won't have to worry about buying art for!

Of course, you don't have to have two bikes in order to utilize your vertical square footage. There are plenty of homes that hoist bikes up to simply get them out of sight out of mind when not in use. Some people view their bikes as works of art and have extra space to display them. If you are lucky enough to have a nice looking bike, go with it and show off your pride and joy in all its glory!

Here are some great examples of making room for bikes:
