Get Instant Shower Storage for Less Than $20

1.3M Views
Need more shower storage? I definitely did! There's nothing worse than trying to get clean while bottles and soap containers are falling on your toes. Instead of adding shelves or making a more permenant (read: expesnvie) change to my shower, I came up with a simple solution! I used a tension rod, shower baskets, and some curtain hooks to create more shower space. It's simple and space saving.
Time: 10 Minutes Cost: $18 Difficulty: Easy

STEP 4: Hang your bottles
Clip bottles and wash rags with the curtain hooks and fill up your baskets with fitting items. (I used shallow baskets with the intent of keeping smaller items in it, however, there is a plethora of basket options at the dollar store that would be more suitable than larger items as well.)

    I used an old long utensil dishwasher basket hung from 2 to 3 cup hooks, my shampoo and conditioner bottles are much larger than these. The baskets holds 5 to 7 bottles.

    A tension rod won't withstand all that weight. Mine falls if I move the curtain too roughly.

      You need a rod with a stronger inner spring - OR someone stronger to install it!
