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.

Feed the shower clips through the holes of the shower baskets on each end allowing it to hang from the tension rod.

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.)

    Ever think of just using 3 tiered wire baskets hanging off the "dry" end of shower curtain for those bathing odds n ends?


    Takes up less space, makes bathrooms look less crowded; cheaper.

      No dry end in my shower. I can see your idea working in a bathroom that is larger than mine or if you have the luxury of a clawfoot tub with the oval curtain hanger. I think one good idea brings out the creative minds in a bunch of us.
