Even the roomiest bathrooms can feel oppressive when your shower gear is disorganized. Shower organizers keep all of your shampoo bottles, conditioners, bath soaps, scrubs, razors and shaving lotions in one place. Shower organizers are especially essential if multiple people are sharing a bathroom: You know where your gear is, but it also ensures your stuff doesn’t take over another person’s precious shelf space.
What to Consider
A shower organizer seems like a minor purchase, but it’s something you’ll be using every day. If you want to end up with a more organized morning routine, keep these few things in mind, and your day will be off to a much better start.
Shower organizers can be suspended from showerheads, mounted on walls, hung from doors or shower curtains, even rest on the floor or be attached to a corner wall. Think carefully about what will work best for your space.If you have a larger family using the organizer, you might want to consider a pole caddy that stands in the corner of the shower. They normally have about four shelves and don’t take up too much space. For smaller families, a hanging caddy can do the trick. Finally, consider how important having a place for your razor, bar of soap and shampoo bottles is. Some organizers are designed with a specific focus in mind, and make sure it suits your needs.
How We Selected
We tracked down hundreds of shower caddies, focusing on classic set-ups, including the over-the-showerhead and pole-style design. We considered both professional assessments and consumer reviews, and sought out products from well-established companies with excellent reputations for customer service. A shower caddy may not seem like a big deal, but when you find one that suits you, it can transform your morning routine.
