There are seemingly endless options to choose from when it comes to shower organizers, which is why we've come up with our list of top picks to help you navigate the best of the best. Bathroom storage in general and shower space in particular are hard to come by, especially if you're renting small apartments in the city. Throw in a roommate (or two) and you've got a major overcrowding issue on your hands. One instant, easy solution to your cramped space is the classic shower organizer. With a variety of upgraded caddies hitting the market, we decided to test out the best for every space and style. With picks ranging from compact to large, affordable to pricey, and steel to wood, we've found exactly what you need to declutter your shower and save your space.

Every week we bring new products into our "test lab" and have the whole office vote on their favorites, based on quality, appearance, and price. The winners become the Top Picks of our Annual Guides, which showcase the best products of the year.

Maxwell Ryan, our Founder & CEO, chooses his own Top Pick as well, and demonstrates his favorites in our Annual Guide videos and weekly Instagram story series. Come back every Thursday for a new Annual Guide and Maxwell's Top Pick Instagram story!

Maxwell's Top Pick

Moa Oval Teak Shower Organizer

I will admit that the Moa Teak Organizer was not my first pick when they all came into the office. I was betting on the OXO Good Grips Shower Caddy for it's affordable price and minimal design, BUT everyone at the office swayed me. By the end of the week I could see that the Moa was much more attractive and without moving parts that could complicate things over its lifetime.

Far warmer and homey than metal options the Moa Teak Shower Organizer comes in a stylish oval shape and is made out of water-resistant teak wood that will not corrode or pit. It's about as different as you can get from the typical steel-made caddy seen in most showers, yet the price isn't nearly as steep as some of the more expensive classic options. The unique oval shape can fit shower supplies in a variety of sizes, but if you're looking for a more traditional design AquaTeak offers a few more options.

Best Budget Storage

Maytex Mesh Bath Organizer with Pockets

If you're on a tight budget, this organizer is the least expensive without sacrificing quality. Unlike traditional shower storage options, this one is made out of mesh and includes six sizable pockets to easily hold all of your toiletries. It's easy to hang onto your shower curtain rod and also comes with the added perk of being machine washable, so it's perfect if you want minimal hassle. It's not exactly the most stylish option, but its simple design and roomy pockets make it a top pick.

InterDesign Metalo Adjustable Over Door Shower Caddy

Our favorite budget option, this organizer hooks onto your shower door for ultra convenience. It has four rust-resistant shelves, a washcloth bar, and even two external hooks for hanging your towel on the other side of the door. For added stability there are two suction cups at the base, so no need to worry about banging up your shower door. Best part: the two middle baskets swing out to accommodate tall bottles, making this caddy one of the most efficient in terms of space.

Best Over the Showerhead Storage

OXO Good Grips Stainless Steel 3-Tier Shower Caddy 2.0

Another great inexpensive option, this caddy from OXO has three tiers, a suction cup base, and removable trays for easy cleaning (also dishwasher-safe!). What really makes this one stand out from the rest however, are the small but game-changing features. Hooks for razors and loofahs? Trays with holes for storing bottles upside-down? A hook that grips the showerhead instead of just hanging around it? Yes please! These small but significant details make this option one of the best for your buck.

Simplehuman Adjustable Caddy Plus

Looking for an organizer but worried that the top shelf will end up being too close to the showerhead? This caddy from simplehuman solves that problem with its fully extendable neck that has a twelve inch range! Not only is the neck adjustable, but the shelves themselves can be moved up, down, and sideways to create the perfect storage option for your shower. The Caddy Plus also comes with dividers and compartments that are designed for small items and razors, eliminating the possibility of small toiletries being knocked on the floor by larger bottles. For all you parents out there: the secure showerhead grip and extendable neck make this the most child-friendly option.

Best Corner Storage

Kohler Large Shower Basket

If you just want a little extra storage but don't need a full organizer, this basket from Kohler may be exactly what you're looking for. It fits in the corner of your shower and comes in five different finishes so you're guaranteed a match for your space. It comes in three different sizes so you can have full flexibility in designing your storage - we like the idea of installing a few baskets depending on your needs. They do need drilled in, but come pre-drilled with four mounting holes so most of the work is done for you.

Simplehuman Tension Rod

The Simplehuman Tension Rod changed the shower caddy game with its simple yet smart design. Instead of hanging from the showerhead or over a door, the tension rod extends up the side of your shower with the help of a high compression spring and grippy rubber feet. The pole itself can extend between 6 and 9 feet, making it customizable to most showers, and it's one of the most flexible options out there in terms of placement. Not only that, but its shelves are fully height-adjustable and rust-proof, so you can have a completely worry-free shower situation.

Best Tips for Bathroom Organization

  1. Try a lazy Susan. These functional storage savers aren't just for the kitchen. Use them in your bathroom to easily access all of your grooming products without the cluttered look of lining them all up.
  2. ...or a cart! If it's cabinet or shelving space you're missing, try a small cart. This solution looks great and can hold as little or as much as you'd like. If you don't need the whole cart for storage you can throw on some decor pieces or a plant or two.
  3. Store your not-so-pretty bathroom essentials in stylish canisters. Keep your cotton balls, q-tips, and small hair accessories inside decorative containers for a more elevated bathroom look. There are plenty of style options to play with, from clear glass jars to colorful canisters and everything in between.
