Are you struggling with a cluttered, messy shower? Are you sick of shampoo bottles all over the floor of the tub? If so, you’ll love these shower organization ideas. Here are 18 ideas to inspire you.
I have not tried all these organization products. If I did there’d be so many organizers in my shower that there’d be no room for me!
So to make this list, the products need to meet certain criteria.
If they are products from Amazon they need to have:
- at least 4 stars out of 5
- with over 100 reviews
If they are sold on different websites they need to have similarly high ratings.

Tension Pole / Tension Rod Shower Organization Ideas
The two tension pole organizers shown below are a great “no tools” way to add shelves to your bathtub.
Vertical Tension Pole Shower Organizer
Here is a cool shower organization idea from the company called “simplehuman”.
It is a vertical tension pole that is spring-loaded to help keep itself in place.
And it has rubber feet on the top and bottom to prevent damage to your tub and ceiling, and to help keep secure it.
The three stainless steel shelves can slide up and down on the pole so you can adjust them to fit a variety of shampoo bottle sizes. And they have a couple storage hooks for razors or toothbrushes.
Plus, there is a towel rack to hang facecloths. loofahs or scrubbing brushes.
It is currently rated 4.4 stars out of 5 with over 1,800 reviews on Amazon.
Tension Pole Organizer by ALLZONE
Here is another tension pole corner shower organizer.
This one is from a different company. It is made by ALLZONE.
It is very well rated as well (currently 4.7 stars out of 5), but it is less money than the one shown above.
They may both work for your bathroom, but what suits your style, and what suits your budget?
Add a Second Shower Rod and some baskets
A clever DIY shower organization idea to help get shampoo bottles off the bottom of the tub is to put in a second shower rod or tension bar along the back wall.
As you can see in the picture below, the white tension bar was added close to the back shower wall.
Then you can use some dollar store baskets and S-hooks to hang your stuff from the rod.
Hanging Shower Caddies and Shower Organizers
In this section I’ll highlight some hanging shower organizers that will help you get the shampoo bottles off the rim of the bathtub.
Shower Caddy with Angled Shelves
This design by the mDesign company immediately caught my eye.
The angled shelves look so cool.
There are 6 angled shelves and 2 flat shelves plus some hooks for hanging face clothes, razors, etc…
It is currently rated a very respectable 4.6 stars out of 5 with over 1,800 reviews on Amazon.
Adjustable Shower Caddy by simplehuman
This rust-proof shower caddy by simplehuman comes with a 5 year warranty.
It has a clamp on the top that clamps to your shower head water outlet. And there are two suction cups at the bottom that stick to the shower wall.
You can adjust the height of the shelves up and down to accommodate different size of bottles. Plus, it claims you can adjust the shelves side-to-side as well.
It is currently rated a very solid 4.7 stars out of 5 on Amazon with over 570 reviews.
Over the Shower Door Hanging Organizer
This is a cool idea!
It hangs from your glass shower doors and provides you 4 baskets to put your shampoo, conditioner, soap, etc…
And on the backside – the dry side – there are hooks to hang up your towels.
Very clever organizer.
But the manufacturer said the shower doors cannot be more than 2-inches wide.
It is intended for shower doors, but some people who commented on Amazon said they’ve hung it over shower rods.
It is currently rated 4.6 stars out of 5 with over 940 reviews on Amazon.
Wire Hanging Shower Caddy (hangs from shower head)
This shower caddy by iDesign helps keep your smaller shower items off the lip of the tub.
I say small things because if you have big, round shampoo bottles I don’t know if they’d fit. (It says it is only 4-inches deep.)
A negative comment that came up with this product a few times is that people said the bottom suction cups didn’t work well. (Perhaps it depends on their shower walls?)
It is currently rated 4.5 stars out of 5 on Amazon with over 3,500 reviews.
Using a Mesh Bag to Hang Bath Toys from a Shower Caddy
My friends have a shower caddy similar to the one shown above.
They use mesh bags to hang their kids’ bath toys.
Expandable Hanging Shower Caddy
Here is another hanging shower caddy.
What’s cool about this shower organizer from Zenna Home is that 4 shelves can slide sideways to accommodate for the hoses of handheld showers.
It is currently rated 4.4 stars out of 5 with over 3,400 reviews on Amazon.
Simple Over-the-Door Hanging Shower Basket
My family member was struggling with shampoo bottles sliding around at her feet in her RV shower. (As shown in the photo below.)
And the solution was simple enough.
She bought a simple over-the-door shower basket to hang over her shower doors.
She bought this basket from a dollar store. (I looked to see if Dollar Tree had it, but I didn’t see it on their website.)
It is simple and cheap solution, but it does the trick.
Mesh Pocket Hanging Shower Organizer (can use on wet or dry side of shower)
A hanging organizer with mesh pockets (like the one shown below) can be a great way to organize personal care items for multiple family members.
This one shown here by the MISSLO company has 8 mesh pockets.
What is cool about this organizer is that you can hang it on the WET or DRY side of the shower rod depending on your needs.
Because it is mesh and quick-drying you can put it inside the shower to hold shampoo and conditioner, and it’ll dry after it gets wet.
Or you can hang it on the outside of the shower curtain (the dry side) and use it to store other toiletries if you don’t have adequate bathroom drawers or cabinets.

This hanging mesh organizer is very well rated.
It currently has 4.7 stars out of 5 on Amazon with over 1,600 reviews!
Shower Wall Shelves and Shelving Systems
Many new bathtubs and showers have shelves and ledges built right in.
But if your shower doesn’t, or if it isn’t adequate, here are some shower wall shelves that may suit your needs.
I have separated into ones that use an adhesive to stick to the wall, and ones that use suction cups.
Classy wall shelf with hanging hooks (adhesive)
This is a classy-looking shower wall shelf that also has 4 hooks to hang small shower items from (like clothes, sponges, razors, etc…). It is made by a company called KINCMAX.
It is a “no tools required” installation.
It sticks to the wall using an adhesive paste.
Apparently it is pretty strong adhesive because the manufacturer claims it can hold up to 15 pounds.
Several reviewers on Amazon commented on how pleased they were that it can hold so much.
It currently has a very high 4.8 stars out of 5 with over 105 reviews on Amazon.
2-Shelf Corner Caddy (adhesive)
This is a 2 shelf corner caddy made by Flowmist that sticks to the shower wall using adhesive pads.
The adhesive pads have a small hook on them, and then you hang the shelf system from the hooks.
The manufacturer has a helpful video on their Amazon description page.
It is currently rated 4.6 stars out of 5 with over 560 reviews on Amazon.
3-Pack of Shower Wall Shelves (adhesive)
The company called Orimade makes these stainless steel shelves that stick to your shower wall using adhesive pads.
The product photo shown below really isn’t that great, but reviewers on Amazon have uploaded their own product photos and they look real good.
I don’t have the right to show those photos here, but if you want to see them, click here to see them on Amazon. (Scroll down to the bottom of the page on Amazon to see the reviews.)
It is currently rated 4.8 stars out of 5 on Amazon with over 230 reviews.
Corner Shower Shelves (adhesive)
Here is a cool shower organization idea. It is a 2-pack stainless steel shelf that fits into the 90-degree corners of your shower.
It is made by a company called SMARTAKE.
It sticks using an adhesive so you don’t need to drill into tiles.
But because it is adhesive it means it’ll only work on tiles, marble and tempered glass.
It currently has 4.4 stars out of 5 on Amazon with over 260 reviews.
Shower Shelf Basket by KESOL (adhesive)
This 2-pack of shower shelf baskets is made by a company called KESOL.
It is made from stainless steel. You can get it in silver (like shown below), or in black.
It sticks to the wall using an adhesive patch. The patch has three hooks sticking out from it so you hang your baskets form the little hooks.
The manufacturer said it will stick to ceramic tiles, marble, metal, glass and mirrors.
And if you ever need to remove it, you heat it with a hair dryer and then peel off.
It is currently rated a very high 4.8 stars out of 5 on Amazon with over 340 reviews.
It is currently ‘Amazon’s Choice’ for “shower shelf.”
Shower Wall shelf with suction cups
Using organizers that have suction cups is another “no tools required” shower organization idea.
This waterproof bathroom wall shelf sticks to the shower wall using suction cups. No drilling required.
It’s neat that it has the little hooks on the bottom to hang back scrubbers, soap on a rope, etc..
It is currently rated 4.6 stars out of 5 with over 180 reviews on Amazon.
Suction Cup Wire Basket
Below is a product image of a wire basket with suction cups made by a company called Hasko Accessories.
It is currently the Amazon’s Choice for “Shower Caddy Suction Cup.”
It does have 4 stars out of 5 on Amazon (so less than the basket shown above), but it has way more reviews, over 1,100 reviews.
The most common complaint is about the suction cups not sticking to the wall.
For a suction cup, it is important that your wall is flat, smooth and non-porous.
And this company actually has an installation video on their Amazon page so I suggest you watch that. (It is more than just slapping it up against the wall.)
A DIY Shower Organization Idea
Toiletry Holder made from an old Milk Jug
This isn’t the most elegant solution, but it can be functional and a great way to up-cycle old milk jugs.
