Organizing your shower not only helps to de-clutter your bathroom and make it more visually appealing but also helps to speed up your grooming routine. Finding a spot for all your products can be challenging if your shower doesn’t have much storage space. Small shower stalls may not have a built-in shelf and placing shower essentials like shampoo and conditioner on the ground can be inconvenient and uncomfortable, with some stalls offering almost no space to bend down. If you have a larger shower or one with a tub, the sides of the bathtub may be too small to place items on. That’s why we love using a shower shelf.
The best shower shelf lifts your bathroom essentials up to eye level, providing easy access to the items you use every time you step into the shower. Lifting items off the ground helps to decrease the chance of them growing mold around the bottom and eliminates the possibility of you accidentally kicking or stepping on a bottle. Even in showers that do have built-in shelves or storage space, a shower shelf offers a second storage space that is ideal for users who share a shower.
Keep your loofah and soap off the ground with a useful shower shelf.
1. mDesign Metal Wire Bathroom Tub & Shower Caddy
Find a space for everything with the mDesign Metal Wire Bathroom Tub & Shower Caddy. The caddy comes with a hook that fits over most standard shower pipes, including rain showers, and a suction cup to keep the caddy close to the wall. Six angled shelf baskets allow for every bottle to get its own spot, while two flat shelves provide a space for bars of soap, razors or other small items. The shelf also includes two double hooks to hold razors or hang loofahs. The caddy has an open grid design to help reduce the chance of mildew on the steel wire.
Pros: The separation of products makes it easy to grab items quickly without knocking other bottles over in the process.
Cons: The caddy does not work well with bottles that have a pump dispenser.

The suction cups can be applied to almost any smooth surface, including tile, marble, tempered glass, wood and metal walls. The shelves can be easily removed from the hooks on the suction cups when they need to be rinsed. We also like that the shelves include hooks for razors, washcloths and loofahs.
