I just moved into a 2 family apartment. The porch leads to two doors, one for the upstairs apartment, and one for the downstairs apartment.
The upstairs entryway has a relatively thin space to the side of the stair bannister, but wide enough for my commuting bicycle, (although I'll probably roll it in backwards, so the handlebars never get caught). I plan to place my bicycle there, but I want to ensure that I do not scuff up the walls, as I roll it in and out each day.
I want to cheaply line the walls without altering (scuffing, penetrating) the walls. I figure 3 planes of material could do it, (for the left, right, and back walls), but I'm not sure of which material could be:
- Sturdy enough to stand on its own weight
- Thin enough to not significantly reduce the already small space
- Light enough to rest against the wall without cutting into it if it shifted slightly
- Purchased in sizes 5 ft. tall
- Possibly still aesthetically pleasing
- Corregated cardboard (where could I get sizes large enough)
- Sheetrock/drywall (I think these max at 4 feet)
- Plastic (what type? clear would be aesthetically pleasing)
