We've finally had it with those bathroom storage shelves with suction cups that just don't stay up! Ok, so yes we do put some heavy things in them, but after re-suctioning our lilting corner wire baskets for the gazillionth time, we gave up and replaced them with a more permanent (and stylish!) solution. Our new shower caddy took only a few minutes to install with a tile drillbit, and now we wish we had done this years ago...
Inspired by this post that Jonathan wrote a few years ago, we ordered a heavy-duty chrome shower basket that screws permanently into our tile wall. We're thrilled because the rack is now rock solid, even filled with our admittedly on-the-large-side collection of shampoos etc. We borrowed IKEA Grundtal S-hooks and clips from our kitchen to hang a washcloth and bath gloves, then added a white ceramic silverware basket (the one that Kyle has in her kitchen) to hang a razor in — we even drilled a hole in the bottom so that water can drain out from its bottom.
We weren't familiar with the Concinnity brand, but this stainless steel caddy is heavy and high-quality and includes mounting hardware that even conceals the screws. We're so happy at how organized this has made our shower, especially after also picking up a few label-free bottles for our shampoos. These particular shower baskets are usually really expensive, but are on sale for 75- 88% off, so they end up being cheaper than the similar-looking suction-cup versions from the Container Store we just took down.
