These Apartment Bike Racks Are So Genius, We Can't Even Curated Looks • Jun 05, 2014 By Kelly Anne Bonner Figuring out storage in city apartments these days is no joke. Anyone who's making it work in a small space knows that when it comes to designing an apartment that's less than 600 square feet, every single inch counts. And it's fair to assume that if everything isn't precisely planned out to a tee,  it'll be difficult to prevent the apartment from feeling like it's straight out of an episode of Hoarders.  Space is such a commodity for city dwellers with teeny-tiny accommodations—and if you've got a bike, preserving that precious floor area becomes an even more arduous task. Luckily, there are some wonderfully out-of-the-box thinkers out there that have elevated bike storage into an art, coming up with some obscenely brilliant methods for getting that traveling contraption off to the side and out of the way. So while you're waiting for your big break and that penthouse loft of your dreams to come through, here are some frankly genius ways to take your bike storage to another level. Above, a wooden geometric design allows you to hoist your bike off the ground and look good while doing it.

And a bike holder serves as a handy entryway storage system for keys and other knick knacks. Image via Behance and via CB2, $50.
