Description

This caddy with two short shelves and hooks is an airy option that will probably match your shower or other bathroom fixtures thanks to the versatile chrome finish of its metal design.

Designer Advice

A caddy that you can attach to your showerhead should only be considered if the design of yours doesn’t include a vertical handrail, as that would get in the way of your shelves and create a tacky and wobbly result.

This model includes four wire shower shelves with a breezy design, two hooks for razors, and an extremely flexible pole that’s guaranteed to fit in your bathroom since it goes from 5 to 9 feet (and everything in between, of course).

Description

This handy caddy with four separate wire shower shelves is available in a bronze or chrome finish and includes five hooks for added practicality. Stopping it from swinging, the suction cups at the bottom will prevent you from getting its content to fall should you hit it accidentally.

Designer Advice

Choosing a higher number of smaller wire shower shelves can help you keep your shower area tidy if you’re part of a big family. That way, everyone can have their own section, so you won’t end up arguing with your partner or kids for using someone else’s favorite shampoo by mistake.

Symple Stuff

Description

This metal model in a versatile rust-resistant silver finish is only 6.30” x 9.80” x 26.10”, meaning that you can easily fit it in the corner of your shower while storing plenty of products on its three wire shelves.

Designer Advice

Freestanding shower shelves are a handy portable solution if you have young kids that would struggle to reach a higher hanging model. Just keep in mind that it might take you a few showers to get used to it without kicking it when turning around.

Oval Bathroom Shower Organizer

Aqua Teak

Description

Made from solid teak that has a natural wood grain finish, this shower organizer features a unique oval silhouette. It includes two shelves and a soap slot at the base. All shelves are naturally self-draining due to their slatted design.

Designer Advice

This organizer would look great in a modern bathroom due to its cool geometric design. Its neutral brown finish would also contrast well with an all-white bathroom. Moreover, the crossbeam borders will stop anything falling when you’re showering. However, we wouldn’t recommend it for narrow showers as it is bigger in width due to the oval shape.

Designed to be hung from your shower rail, this bamboo caddy has two ridged shelves. Additionally mildew resistant, it features anti-slip pads to prevent any shifting. Plus, there are two hooks on each side for razors and washcloths.

Gracie Oaks

Description

Mildew resistant, this shower caddy is made of wood. It has a tongue-in-cheek slogan on the middle shelf and a distressed antique white finish. There are three shelves for storage. All mounting hardware is included as well as a rope.

Designer Advice

The perfect addition to a farmhouse or cottage-inspired bathroom, this caddy’s cute slogan will also add an element of fun. However, its hanging rope design may not be the best option for smaller bathrooms due to the lower height. Nevertheless, the three equally sized shelves will hold towels and toilet paper as well as shower essentials.

Description

This caddy is 22” high and includes two 10” shelves as well as six hooks in different sizes. Its design is ideal to keep your shampoo and conditioner bottles on top and some soap or a collection of smaller samples at the bottom.

Designer Advice

If you and your family members use more than one loofah or sponge, a wire shower shelf with separate hooks will allow you to keep them separate and ventilated, preventing the growth of mold. Some hooks can be used for razors, too.

Scrollwork Unique Shower Caddy

Description

Affordably priced, this caddy is rust resistant. Crafted from metal, it features a chic bronze finish and measures 24.5 inches tall and 12 inches wide. Two shelves are included, as well as a small soap dish. No mounting hardware is included.

Designer Advice

The pretty scrollwork detail featured on this caddy is ideal for a more traditional bathroom, as the bronze finish will complement lighter or darker décor. The hooks at the bottom are ideal for hanging bottles or loofahs, whereas the top two shelves will easily fit larger objects. However, the lack of mounting hardware could be a potential issue.

Buying Guide

If your shower doesn’t have built-in shelves, chances are the floor is lined with shampoo and body wash bottles that you’re reaching down for every time you need a wash. Improve the look and functionality of your shower with a unique shower caddy.

These creative units attach to your shower in various ways, some suctioning to the shower wall or others hanging off the showerhead. To maximize the organization in your shower and make cleansing yourself a more pleasant experience, invest in a shower caddy with multiple baskets or levels.

Once you have a shower caddy installed, there are several ways you can organize your products. Keep similar items together for easy access; shampoo and conditioner should go on the same shelf in the caddy, while your razor and shaving cream should be allotted a separate space, and your body wash and scrub another space. This makes your products easy to locate and prevents your caddy from looking cluttered.

Hang your washcloth and loofah from a hook on the caddy so they can air dry, preventing bacterial build-up.

A unique shower caddy can be made from various materials, including plastic, bamboo, metal, and rubber. Regardless of the design, the caddy needs to be waterproof to prevent damage and mold growth.

Bamboo is water-resistant wood, so opt for a bamboo shower caddy with shelves or an oval-shaped wood caddy with a unique design. Clear plastic is ideal as it is stylish yet easy to clean. Depending on the size, you can store several bottles of shampoo, conditioner, and body wash. Colorful plastic baskets with drainage holes keep your family’s items separate.

A traditional metal hanging caddy is a durable option, but you should choose metals such as stainless steel or galvanized aluminum to prevent rust.

When putting something near water, it's important to consider how the material reacts to getting wet. Not all materials will hold up when being exposed to that much moisture, but here are some of the best options.

Metal

Metal is a broad category. Shower and bathtub accessories come in all kinds of metal from zinc and bronze to brass and copper. These are some of the most attractiveoptions, but you have to consider how they rust.

Most of the time, metal materials rust at the joints rather than on smooth surfaces. Unless the finish wears off, you won't encounter much visible rust until it spreads out from the joints, which can take some time.

However, metal does rust when water creeps in and sits in the same spot. When choosing metal, consider how many joints and seems it has, and their placement. A wire basket with a grid pattern that has a lot of soldered joints may accumulate rust more quickly than something made of many more solid pieces.

Brass, bronze, and copper are typically a bit more expensive, but they are less prone to rust. Zinc is more affordable, but will rust more quickly and need to be replaced.

Plastic

Plastic is lightweight and affordable. A plastic shower caddy may be a great solution for you because it offers a rigid shape, but it's often not as durable as metal. Depending on construction, plastic shelves may not hold as much weight as metal and it also won't last as long.

However, plastic is a great cheap solution for a bathtub that doesn't get as much use as the shower or for a guest bathroom that is only occupied occasionally.

Plastic does stain, so keep in mind that proper cleaning is critical with this type of caddy.

Mesh

Mesh is a unique and versatile solution for a shower caddy because it doesn't hold water and it dries quickly. It won't rust, but the mesh material can rip, so it may not be as durable. While you likely can't put heavy items in it, it's a great storage solution for lightweight supplies.

Mesh is great for kid's bath toys, travel sized items, or lightweight accessories like loofahs. Mesh doesn't hold its shape so it won't sit on a shelf, but it's versatile enough to hang on a hook, the shower head, or the faucet handle.

Wood

Various woods, like bamboo or teak, are also very durable options for areas with a lot of moisture. They're warm and relaxing, so they're the perfect solution for soaking in the tub with your favorite book or TV show. You just can't go wrong with a traditional wooden bathtub tray, especially if it comes with a book holder, a place for a scented candle and a wine glass slot.

Shower and bathtub accessories are handy when you need extra shelving in your shower or bathtub. What you need will depend largely on what you want it to hold. Shampoo, conditioner, soap, lotion, razors, shaving cream, and other shower necessities all take up room.

Consider the design of your shower and bathtub accessories in light of what you keep in your shower before you proceed.

Extra shelving

If you're storing a lot of family size bottles of shampoo and soap, extra shelving may be what you need most. A corner standing tension rod with 2-4 shelves on it is probably perfect. Metal is durable and will hold more weight, so consider a metal solution to hold heavy liquids.

Baskets

Baskets are great options for holding loose items like travel sized bottles, hair ties, rags, toys, or loofahs. Most of these things are lightweight, so your basket could be plastic or mesh.

However, if you need multiple baskets to segment these items, consider a solution that has a combination of shelving and baskets of different sizes for versatility.

Hooks

Clips, hooks, or hangers are great for loofahs with strings or razors you need to hang to let dry between showers. Consider shower and bathtub accessories that come with built-in hooks for these items to make them more useful for you.

The configuration of your shower or bathtub will help you decide where you should place your accessories. Small bathrooms benefit from vertical storage, making use of empty corners, while large bathrooms allow you to spread out more.

Hanging accessories

Hanging accessories are perhaps the easiest way to conserve space, as long as you have a place to hang it. Some solutions hang over your shower head or faucet handle while others are designed to hang on the back of a shower door or over the side of the tub.

Some people find that hanging over the shower head can get in the way of water flow, while hanging over the faucet handle can get in the way of turning the shower on. However, if you don't have a shower door, that option won't work for you.

Corner accessories

Placing your storage in the corner makes effective use of your vertical space and keeps items off of the floor. If you don't have any shelving in your shower or bath area right now, this solution is attractive and stylish.

You don't have to bend over to reach anything anymore, and it's perhaps the most convenient space-saving solution there is.

While some of these mount on the tile using suction cups, others have shelves built into tension rods that run from floor to ceiling. Suction cups aren't as durable or heavy duty, but they're cheaper.

Floor accessories

There are also many attractive floor designs, so if you want to place your accessories on the floor beside the bathtub, you can make use of a tiered basket design that looks stylish and offers plenty of function. Be prepared for water dripping on the floor though.

Floor accessories can also be used in the shower, especially if you don't like any of the hanging solutions. While you may still have to bend to reach items on the bottom, the tiered design still makes use of vertical space, just not to the extent that a corner accessory does.

The best shower and bathtub accessories are the ones that make the most effective use of your space, hold the things you need the most, and work to declutter your bathroom. Research your options, measure your shower or bathtub space, and consider every design and how it will solve your problem so you can select the best solution for you.
