Our friends Evelyn and Jesse recently went on a road trip to Portland and stayed at the Ace Hotel. We were looking through the photos from their trip and were really struck by this riser mounted soap and shower caddy for the clawfoot tub in their hotel room.
What we like about it is its simple style, and mostly, that the soap and shampoo are within easy reach for shower use. We also like how the design of the shelf holding the shampoo and shower gel allows for those bottles to be securely fixed on to it.
We live in an apartment with a clawfoot tub with an added shower attachment. Because our shower head is mounted on a very thin, tall, and straight riser with no wall behind it, our standard shower caddy hangs awkwardly high up and sticks out from, rather than flush against, the riser. And being short, we still have a problem with easily reaching the top shelf where we keep the tall shampoo and conditioner bottles. It's a less than ideal situation, but until now, we haven't run across any good solutions for our situation.
Does anyone have any other well-designed solutions for shelving/caddies for a shower in a clawfoot tub?
