If you’re someone who enjoys riding a bike, you already know how complicated it can be to store it if you’re strapped for space. The size and layout of your apartment will determine how much space you’ll have available to store your bike. Owning more than one bike can be an issue for renters without some innovative storage area. Keeping this in mind, here’s a list to help you discover spots to store your bike in your apartment!
Apartment storage space is a blessing for renters, which is why you could be wondering how a coat closet could be a good space for your bike. Your coat closet makes an excellent area to keep your bike because of its easy accessibility. Closets are generally in the closest rooms towards the front door, allowing for easy access. To create more space in your closet, consider moving your heavy coats into your room and swapping them out with sweaters or dresses. This will open up the bottom part of your closet, allowing you to keep your bike inside.
Balcony or Porch
If your apartment has a porch or balcony, then you’re in luck. Porches and balconies are the perfect space to store your bike, just consider placing a lock on it so no thieves try to swipe it, especially if you live in a garden level apartment. Protect your bike from the harsh weather conditions by covering it with a towel, tarp, or bike cover. Also, be sure your bike isn’t blocking the door; it can be a huge fire hazard and could be against your lease agreement.
If you’ve got enough wall space in your apartment, you can easily store your bike in your laundry room. Floors usually are made up of hard-surface materials like wood or tile, which make cleaning up the dirt or marks from your bike much easier than on carpet.
This is pretty obvious, but still worth mentioning. If you’re fortunate enough to have a garage, then storing your bike inside is a no-brainer. It’s not in your apartment, and you don’t have to worry about any dirt or mud being tracked back inside to your main living space.
Last but not least, storage rentals also work perfectly if your apartment complex provides them. Luckily, the Apartments of Wildewood has you covered, with two on-site storage rentals for residents.
