What type of Shower Caddy is the Best for you?

There are two main shower caddy types available for you to buy, and these are:

    Suction Caddies – This type of shower caddies have suction cups that fix them to the wall making them more secure when used. There are two styles available. The first one is the hanging caddy which is primarily supported by the brushed nickel shower arm on which it is hanged, and the bottom part is pressed up against the wall of the shower to make it even more stable. The second style is more steady and sturdy and is known as power lock caddy. These shower caddies have four or more suction cups, depending on the size of the caddy and the number of shower baskets, which allow them to be securely attached to any relatively smooth wall in the shower. The power lock caddies are a bit more expensive than the hanging ones, but the investment is worthy if you consider the stability and the appearance you will get for your money.
    Tension Pole Caddies – The tension pole shower organizer is more popular these days because of its fancy design convenient for the new, modern apartments and houses. This type of caddy has regular length pole with multiple shelves, and is secured between the bathroom floor or the corner of the shower and the ceiling with a ratcheting mechanism. They are very convenient for smaller apartments, because they do not take much space but provide place for many of the things we need in our shower.

Aside from these two, main types of shower caddies, there are also some that can be placed on the floor on the shower without the need of any type of attachment to the walls, but these caddies can be quite heavy and can take more space than an average shower can afford. The shower caddies also differ in their sizes, or the number of baskets they have, how these baskets are arranged, do they provide an option to place the bottles upside down, etc. Choosing the best shower caddy has to consider these elements too. What should you consider when buying a Shower Caddy?
After you decide what type of shower caddy is the best for you, there also are some other things that you should consider, such as the material from which it is made, or its size, how big should it be to fulfill your needs, etc.

When considering the material the shower caddy is made of, there are two main options, plastic or metal. The metal caddy can have many variations, such as chrome, iron with a powder coat finish, or brass with a chrome finish, or stainless steel. The most important thing when choosing a metal shower caddy is to make sure it is resistant to rust, because the caddy will be in contact with water all of the time and rust can be a very big problem. The metal shower caddies are a better option when compared to the plastic ones because they are stronger and more durable, can hold more weight without braking and are much more stylish. They also are pricier than the plastic caddies, but the investment is definitely worth it.

The size of the best shower caddy for you greatly depends on the quantity of the shower items you have and use. If you live alone then you probably have several things you need while showering and they can be placed on a single hanging caddy. But, if you share your bathroom with your family, then most certainly there are all sorts of shampoos, soaps, body washers, etc. you need to place somewhere. In these situations a corner shower caddy with several shower baskets, or maybe additional wall-mounted one, will be a better option.

Your aesthetic and decorating preferences are also very important when shopping for a shower caddy. Most of the offered shower caddies are white, but you can also find beautiful designs in blue, or light green, or maybe some other color that will freshen up the appearance of your bathroom. Some people prefer the stainless steel shower caddies because they have unique design and color that goes with almost every decoration style.

These are the main things you need to know and consider before you start your search for the best shower caddy for your house or apartment. Just know your needs in size, design, color, type and you will find your best option very easy. Since there is a really wide range of different shower caddies, the best place to start your search would be the Internet. Many of the stores have limited offer, especially when considering the design and colors, and the deals online can be much more attractive.

Corner Bathroom Organizers

Why you should buy a Corner Shower Caddy?

People have many things in their bathrooms they need and use every day, like different shampoos, shower baths, soaps, razors, etc. Most often these things are scattered everywhere; the shampoos are placed on the edge of the shower together with the baths and soaps, the razors are in the drawers or in the bathroom shelves, etc.

When we go to the shower we need to either remember everything we might need to take with us, or get out in the middle of the showering to get them. If the family is larger, the need for more space for the additional bottles is even more increased.

There are many different ways in which you can best utilize the little available space in the bathroom, such as bathroom caddies, shower caddies, shower baskets and bathtub caddies, among other bathroom fixtures, but the corner shower caddy has become one of the top favorites because of its great features.

One of the best things about the corner shower caddy is its design. These type of shower caddies are made with space saving benefits as the highest priority. As their name suggests, they can be placed in any corner of the shower  providing for better space optimization.

You can really place many of the showering supplies on a single corner shower caddy because they have more baskets than usual and these baskets can also be adjusted to your needs.

You can fix each basket at the exact height you need so that you can place the bottles that are higher on one of the shelves, and the smaller items on other. This way you can organize your showering stuff in a neat and decorative manner.

The corner shower caddy is also very safe to use in showers because it is securely fixed to the walls, with all the things you need at the reach of your hand and without a possibility for them to fall down from it. Other great thing about it is that it is also very affordable.

Corner Shower Caddy – Available Options

When searching for a corner shower caddy you should first consider the size of the caddy that will best fit your family needs. Depending on the size of the family and the people using the bathrooms you can measure what size of a shower caddy you should buy.

The aesthetic preferences you have are also important. You would not want your new shower caddy to stick out from the whole décor. It would be better if you start your search knowing the design, color and material that is best for your bathroom.

As mentioned before, the corner shower caddy is placed in one of the corners in the shower. It has to be secured to the walls and there are two main options to do this.
You can either place it permanently with some kind of screw, or you can use suction cups.

If you decide to screw it to the walls, it is very important to be absolutely sure of its best position, because with the screwing you will permanently damage the tiles and the wall.

Finding The Best Shower Caddy

When it's time to organize that messy shower cubicle or space, chances are that you will opt for a shower caddy.

The advantages of using a shower caddy as opposed too some other option are:
  • No structural or plumbing changes are needed. Its a DIY option. 
  • No trades person is required. 
  • It is likely that a design to suit your décor is available. 
  • They are easily swapped, changed or replaced. 
The decision to install a shower caddy is fairly easy, what becomes a little more complicated is just what style of  to choose. The vast majority of caddies fall into two main installation styles, independent of the material they are constructed from.

The Suction Shower Caddy

This is probably the most common style and is typically made from brushed nickel. They hang from the shower pipe outlet (normally brushed nickel as well) and uses that as the main support for the caddy.

To prevent any side to side movement a suction cup on the bottom of the frame attaches to the tiled shower wall. While they do come in some other materials, always double check the quality to ensure they will be rust proof.

More expensive versions like the power lock caddy will have additional suction cups to further secure it to the wall.

Compression Pole Shower Caddies 

 Basically the caddy is designed around a full (ceiling to floor) length pole, which supports multiple baskets for any shower bits and pieces. A tightening mechanism is used to clamp the pole in place, so it can be fitted to any sized opening.
