Nifty Shower Niche

When doing a gut remodel, grab storage space between the wall studs and install a niche. It’s a great place to house shampoo bottles, soaps and razors, keeping them off the floor and out of the way. Match the niche tiles to the new wall tiles to blend in or make it a focal point in the shower. Design and photography by April Bettinger of Nip Tuck Remodeling

Hanging Shower System

A three-tiered bamboo and wire shelf is a quick fix for a storage solution in a shower. Hang it from the showerhead to organize different-sized shampoo bottles, body washes, bar soaps, razors and sponges for the whole family. Photo courtesy of Bambeco

Safe Shower Storage

Don’t skimp on safety in the shower regardless of your age. This sturdy grab bar attaches to the shower wall and gives you a hand getting in and out of the shower or bath. The attached shelf offers storage for shampoo bottles, soap or sponges for a quick clean up. Photo courtesy of Moen

Space-Saving Shower Rod

Expand the space in the shower by installing a double curved shower rod that extends slightly out in the room without robbing valuable space. The curtain liner rides on the inner rail while the decorative shower curtain attaches to the outer rail. Photo courtesy of Moen

Dual Shower Organization

You can never have too much storage in the shower for all your bathing needs. When installing a wall niche in a shower wall, opt for one (or two) that have different shelves to hold shampoo bottles, body wash, soap and sponges. Design and photography by April Bettinger of Nip Tuck Remodeling
