Keeping your bike outside leaves it prone to theft, even if you lock it up. And if you live in a smaller space, without giant closets, a garage or a basement, then you'll need to keep your bike somewhere inside your home. Your living space doesn't need to look and feel cluttered with your two-wheeled ride standing awkwardly against the wall. Here are five smart and attractive ways to store your bike in your home.
Bike shelf by Board By Design
Board By Design's handmade shelf lets you hang your bike by its saddle, handling any and all bike shapes and sizes. Your bike will look as if its floating elegantly by the wall. Better yet, The Bike All shelf has two hooks for your helmet and bag. Place your smaller belongings on the top shelf—there's even an opening for your cell phone charger. The all-wood unit is especially handy for the space-deprived, measuring in at only 20-inches long and 7-inches tall.

Shoes Books and a Bike by Thomas Walde
Proudly display your bike with Thomas Walde's Shoes Books and a Bike, a sturdy shelving unit with plenty of space. The stand is made of fir, coconut fibre and steel, ensuring support for even your heavy-set rides. A large clip holds onto the bike's tire to keep it upright and steady. And below the main shelving space, Walde has created three smaller areas for storing your shoes, helmet, books and bags. This could easily be the centerpiece of your living space.

The Bike Dock by Dave Custer
This smart metal rack mounts on a wall and holds your bike by the frame, plus has hooks for all of your accompanying gear in a small footprint. The Bike Dock creator Dave Custer came up with the design after moving into a small studio, where he had limited space for his bike and cycling equipment. Best of all, when your bike isn't hanging up, the Bike Dock can fold up and lay flat on the wall, like a piece of modern art. The project is currently available to back on Kickstarter.

Michelangelo Two Bike Gravity Stand by Public Bikes
Public Bikes' Michelangelo Two Bike Gravity Stand is perfect for when you have more than one bike and are short on space. The simple metal stand just rests against your wall—no mounts needed. There's an adjustable top and bottom rack, for you to store one or two bicycles of any shape or size, and lets you choose the heights at which your bikes rest.

Trophy hanger by Furniply
Get meta with the Trophy hanger, a bike rack made of bike parts. Part art, part utility, this creation from Etsy seller Furniply lets you rest your bicycle atop some soft grip bike handlebars. The material ensures your frame won't get scratched. And a bike seat with attached stainless steel hooks give you room to hang up your coats and riding goods.

It doesn't get much simpler than The (Original) Bike Shelf from Knife and Saw (http://www.theknifeandsaw.com/KSItemDetail.php?PC=2&II=2). Just slide the top bar of your frame into the opening and your bike hangs beautifully from the shelf. Place your helmet, lock, keys, books -- whatever you like—atop the shelf to complete the look.
