The Chic, Renter-Friendly Organizers That Doubled My Shower Storage Space In Seconds (They’re Drill-Free!)
I don’t think you have to live in New York City to know just how tiny our living quarters are (why do I live here again?!). While I was overjoyed to finally live on my own for the first time this year, that meant I’d have to deal with a smaller kitchen and bathroom situation. And let me tell you, the latter space has been quite the predicament for someone like me who collects wayyy too many beauty products. While I’ve lived in my studio for 10 months, it wasn’t until recently that I finally found a bathroom storage solution that cleared my cluttered tub once and for all.
TL;DR: Umbra can do no wrong, and these sleek, rust-free bins are further proof of that. I love that they nestle perfectly into the unused corner space in my absurdly small tub, and that the white color camouflages into the tile so it doesn’t appear that there’s something super clunky taking up space (they come in black, too). The best part? They’re accompanied by super sticky, waterproof adhesives so you don’t have to pull out any tools to attach them to the wall or deal with patching holes when you move out. Simply clean the area you want to “mount” them, press the adhesives on the wall, and you’ve got instant organization in seconds! Note that they don’t work with porous surfaces, but tile and concrete are fine.
You also have the option to place them on top of each other like I did, or place them in opposite corners to fit your needs and shower space. Now, these things hold a lot — up to 10 pounds — and fit way more than I imagined (they’re not even full!). And the cherry on top is that these handy bins also come with four metal hooks that slide over the top of the bins, and they’re perfect for loofahs, washcloths, or whatever else you could hang from them. Now that’s how you maximize your storage space.
So, if you live in a teeny-tiny apartment or you’re just in search of chic, non-damaging, and easy-to-install bathroom storage, these fuss-free bins are the answer to your organizing woes.
