Shower Organization

Because a shower is used every day, it should definitely be neat and organized so that you can enjoy it to its maximum potential. This is especially important if your shower is smaller or you have a shower/tub combination with little space to work with. If you have a bigger shower setup, organization will be a little easier. However, you will still want to keep up with organizing your area in order to reduce and clutter or loose objects.

Depending on the type of shower area that you have, organization might be easier or harder to fully achieve. You should give it enough attention to get as close as you can, however. Organizing a shower area is easy for the most part, but there are always some factors that could get in your way. The incorporation of different storage and organization accessories will help you greatly. It will also give you a clear and accessible shower area in your bathroom design. Many of these points can be used in other areas of your home as well. With that being said, it is important to take these into careful consideration.


Shower Baskets

One of the most effective ways to organize your shower area is through the use of shower baskets. These are primarily used to store the items that you use on an every day basis in your shower. These items include, shampoos, conditions, wash cloths, loofahs, brushes and other small items that can fit in the basket. This is the most convenient way to store all of your shower items while keeping them in an easily accessible location. Many shower baskets have multiple baskets all connected in one cohesive accessory.

Shower baskets can typically have one to three baskets. This means there is more than enough space for you to store your shower items. This will give you an effective way to separate all of your items while keeping them close together and in an organized fashion. They are also quite versatile in terms of their looks as well. You can choose from a number of different styles. Also, you can choose from several finishes and installation types in order to optimize your design and area. Many shower baskets utilize the chrome finish, due to the popularity of the finish in general. With that being said, shower baskets can definitely come in other finishes and styles.


Though shower baskets are typically a better option due to their increased security of items, shelves are also very good options for you to store your items. Shelves can be self-adhesive, have suction cups or even mounted onto your wall with screws. This is a great feature because every shower is different in design. One shower might be able to incorporate a shelf that is self adhesive. Another shower might need a shelf that is fastened to the wall with screws.

Either way, you will absolutely be able to find a shelf or shelves that will work perfectly in your shower area. Shelves will do the same thing as a shower basket. However, sometimes items can fall off of them a bit easier. This is, unless the shelf has a lip to prevent items from falling. This shouldn’t deter you from looking for a great shelf to incorporate in your shower area however, as they can be a very beautiful and helpful accessory. That being said, you should make sure your shelves are secure and able to hold the items you need.

Storage Outside of Your Shower

Shower organization is important both inside and outside of your shower itself. You can do this in a number of different ways. All of these will serve to benefit your area in terms of both comfort and accessibility. One very effective way to do this is to incorporate some bins. Put them in the area in order to store some of the items that you may not need to use on a daily basis. You may just need some extra storage space. These bins can be stored in a vanity or a closet, giving you a great method of organization. You can also incorporate some DIY storage options such as custom towel storage or bathroom hooks that can hold robes or towels. This is something that you can get creative with. You should add a touch of style and personality to your shower area and your bathroom as a whole.

Towel Bars and Racks

Towel bars are absolutely necessary when figuring out how to organize your shower area. These will allow you to properly organize and dry out your towels so that they are ready for future use. Along with a towel bar, you can also incorporate a towel rack. These can be either freestanding or mounted on the wall. Depending on the amount of towels that are used in your bathroom, you may even want to use both in your particular setup. Towel bars and racks can come with several great features that will allow you to appreciate their importance even more. For example, one of the most popular features of a towel bar/rack is the heating feature. A heated towel bar will help speed up the process of drying your towels and reduce the risk of any buildup of mold or germs.

Quality and comfort are two important factors in terms of a perfect bathroom design. Because of this, this is something that you should absolutely take into consideration. Regardless of whether they have a heating feature or not, towel bars and racks are essential for any bathroom design. You can also include towel hooks if you feel as though a towel rack or a towel bar isn't right for your particular design. Hooks do the exact same thing as bars or racks with a few small differences. For starters, hooks will almost never be heated. Also, they are smaller and a bit less effective at drying your towels or robes because they can't spread the towels out. That being said, bathroom hooks are still magnificent for many bathroom designs. You should definitely take them into consideration.

Keep Similar Items Together

This is an organization tip for every aspect of your home, but it is especially important for your shower area. Start by seeing what items you have in your shower that you use on a daily basis. During this process, get rid of any unused items or empty bottles. Focus on the items that are actually good for use. Keep your shampoo and conditioner together because they are often used together. Keep any shaving products together as well so you can have easy access to them. This is important so you don't have to worry about moving any other items out of the way to get to them. The same can be said with any soaps, body wash, or essentially any other item in your shower. These items can be organized on shelves or baskets, or another storage method that you might have.

When all is said and done, you need to have all of your items easy to find and easy to access. If you want to use a shower caddy, you will have great little tool for organizing the items you need on any given day. This is especially effective if you need to transfer your items from one room to another. A shower caddy will give you a very convenient way to both transfer and optimize your items that you need for your shower. You can put every item you need for the shower in your caddy. Then you can easily remove them when you are done. This is an efficient way to increase the comfort of your shower experience as well as the surrounding area.

Shower Mats

There are two different mats that you can use in your shower area. The first is a mat that you should put directly in your shower, and the second is a mat that you should put outside of your shower. Both of these have great benefits and should be taken into consideration. You should think about incorporating a mat in your shower so that you can prevent any slipping that could happen while you are moving in your actual shower itself. In addition to that, include a mat outside of your shower so that you don't slip there either. Mats can also serve as beautiful pieces of decor as well. This is something else that you should note. Having a stable and safe shower is just as important for organization as it is for a safe and comfortable experience.

What To Avoid

There are a few things to avoid when organizing your shower area. First of all, try not to have everything in one place. This means that you should keep your items organized but spaced out so that there isn't a lot of buildup of clutter. Try to keep your area spaced out for maximum comfort and accessibility. Another thing to avoid is a lack of organization accessories. You should always make sure you are utilizing your shower baskets, shelves and other accessories. You shouldn't waste any space when it comes to your accessories, so try your best to help them reach their maximum potential. All in all, you need to avoid any unnecessary items and keep your shower area clean and in order at all times.
