Top 10 Best DIY Shower Caddies

Every room has its own set of challenges when it comes to organizing and keeping things organized can be a tricky and for some a frightfully daunting task. Nowadays there are many products and gadgets that will help you do this task with a lot less fuss.

Yet, when we think about organizing the house, our thoughts go to things that belong in the bedroom, the kitchen, or the garage. Yet we often overlook the bathroom, which, especially for a household with women, needs a lot of space to store all those hygiene and beauty products.

Speaking of which, you might think that your bathroom vanity is enough space for all your toiletries, but how about the bathtub or the shower. This is where some extra shelving is always a good idea. But, each bathroom is different so, you might not have enough space for some fixed shelving, or you just want to have the option to put keep your toiletries in one place and move them around easily. Then what you need is a bath/shower caddy.

Almost any basket, tray, or container really, can be turned into a shower caddy. You can get small ones that you can easily move around or put away until needed while others can be fixed in place.

Another great thing is that you don’t need to go out and buy special shower caddies unless you want to because they are very easy to make or put together from things you might already have around.

So let’s see some of the most amazing DIY shower cadies you can make today.
