Chrome Shower Basket Storage

Chrome Shower Basket Storage

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.
