Best Wall-Mount Shower Shelves

There are a variety of ways to add storage to your shower. This article covers wall-mounted shower shelves that either require drilling or uses adhesives. These are great for tiled showers. They’re a more permanent solution and allow you to install them exactly where and how you like.

An individual shelf can’t hold a ton of weight, so we favor installing several shelves instead of trying to fit a lot of bottles on one.

Other options include shower caddies, shower shelves that use suction or adhesives, shower tension rods, and freestanding shower shelves. These are all great options, but they each have certain requirements to be installed or used.

Suction cups cannot hold much weight and are a nuisance when they keep falling down. Adhesives, sometimes combined with the suction cups, work very well, but they may require a large area to be free from tile grout to work properly.

You simply may not have enough room for a freestanding shower caddy or tension rod. Tension rods have much of the same problems as suction cup shower caddies in that they tend to be awkward to install and can’t handle much weight.

There are some great solutions out there for the other categories if you’re interested. Check out our shower caddy review article. Just keep in mind the limitations and installation requirements.

Don’t want to drill into your tile shower? If none of the other shower shelf or caddy options appeal to you, then consider installing a shelf just on the outside of your shower. That way you’re just drilling into drywall. You still have all your bottles within reach.
