Our article entitled “Give your old bike a second chance and turn it into a beautiful and original decoration for your garden” can give you plenty of ideas.

An easy and popular solution would be to hang your bike on the wall. This way you can also turn it into an unusual but eye-catching decoration. Mounting the bike on the wall is not difficult at all. You just have to make sure the hanger is sturdy and that the spot you have chosen doesn’t incommode you in any way. You can store your bike on the hallway, at the entrance, underneath the staircase but also in some more unconventional spaces such as the bedroom, office or media room.

If you don’t want to use your energy for mounting the bike on the wall, you can just lean it against a wall or a piece of furniture. The mudroom would be a perfect place for that but if you’re creative you can also come up with other solutions. The key is to avoid treating your bicycle as a means of transportation or as a dirty and rusty piece and to start seeing it more like something with lots of potential, a decoration that could add uniqueness to your home.
