I know planning storage space into a renovation might not be the most exciting aspect of a home overhaul but it is a very important thing to consider. This can be an equally daunting task if you and your family have many hobbies. Between the sports equipment, craft supplies, model making kits and board games you may start to realize that you may run out of space quicker than you think. If that is the case you may need to consider an alternative solution like storing these items out in the open. Think of it as showing off your passion and hobbies as a work of art.
Wall Bike Storage
This particular idea is great for people who bike to work but also live in small apartments with very limited space. A small yet sturdy hook can be drilled into a stud or rafter in a matter of minutes and before you know it you have a wall bike rack.
You can even get a decorative bike shelf that includes a groove that you place your bike in. This can be mounted as high as you like depending where you want the bike to sit.
Hobby Craft Room
If you are anything like me then you know how quick you can run out of space for completed crafts and loose materials. Instead of storing these handmade items in a bin at the back of the closet why not put them on display for all to see.
This craft room is a good example of this since both completed and half finished airplanes are displayed.
Subtle Hobby Display
Sometimes hobbies are too large to place inside your home but there is a subtler approach to show off your passions. This horse painting surrounded by awards display a competitive riding hobby.
The same can be done with other large hobbies like a car or motorcycle enthusiast.
If you play an instrument don't lock it up in a boring old case but instead mount it on a wall. It would be easily accessible when ever the mood hit and it creates a homey eclectic vibe.
