Organizing your bathroom supplies can be a tedious project. Showering or bathing should be a simple task, however once you start compiling shampoo, conditioner, razors, bath and body gels and everything else smart marketers have convinced you are necessary for a prime bathing experience what you end up with is a lot of products cascaded on your tub floor. If you don’t have a contraption to keep it together and out of the way you could find yourself in a world of hurt or frustrated at the very least.
Enter the ingenious plastic shower caddy. Few inventions have served such an important purpose and prevented more accidents and falls than they have. Unfortunately, one size does not fit all and the choices are seemingly endless.
Plastic shower caddies are available with either a pole that connects to your actual shower or in hanging versions. They also come in varying widths, depths and heights. For those who make a habit of incorporating a ton of toiletries, it may be a good idea to invest in the pole version of the plastic shower caddy as they often have more shelving units to hold all your necessities.
A pole shower caddy will vary in height and generally will reside in the corner of your shower so that it is out of the way. Most of these styles come in 3 feet to 5 feet as this is an optimum height that is convenient for easy reaching. Others are available in shorter or taller versions but are more difficult to find. Usually this type has anywhere from 3 to 7 shelving units. Purchase one based on how much product you need stored and how much room you have in your shower in general.
Hanging versions of the plastic shower caddy offer various styles as well. While some are hung from your shower head, other are affixed to the wall of the shower and can be placed anywhere that is convenient. These types often times have a more bucket appearance and can be more durable and easier to work with. They also afford the buyer the choice of having one, singular bucket or one that incorporates sections for better organization. Shower caddies that hang from the shower head can be flimsier and it can be a pain having to reach up through the water to get it. Again, this is based on person preference and how much product or supplies you have.
Plastic shower caddies come in durable plastic which means they can hold a pretty good amount of weight. They also come in a slew of color choices. For a subtle or simple look consider one in clear coloring. If décor is important, there are wide selections of various colors available and you will certainly be able to find one to match your existing bathroom color swatches.
Plastic shower caddies can be found in most department stores, bed and bath specialty stores and online. For truly unique and hard to find models looking online may be your best bet as the selections are more plentiful.
Depending on the style you choose, the prices will vary.
