I want to know everything about... bathroom shelves and baskets

Baths and showers attract a lot of clutter which can make even the most elegant of bathrooms quickly appear messy. You bathroom needs to be a practical space, but it also needs to be a place you can find peace and rest after a hard day. Storage is essential to keeping your bathroom looking neat and tidy.

Bottles of bath oils, shampoo, shower gel and other products, along with sponges and exfoliators, can collect on the edge of the tub or in the corner of your shower enclosure. Additionally, there’s nothing less refreshing than showering amongst a pile of bottles slipping onto the floor at your feet.

Shelves and shower baskets can be a simple storage solution to store your bathroom products, whilst still being functional so everything is always within easy reach. Here’s everything you need to know about bathroom shelves and baskets.

Bathroom baskets

Bathroom baskets are a quick and easy way to tidy up your bathroom products, whilst having them centrally located so they’re always within easy reach when you need them. Nothing is less refreshing than foraging through a pile of bathroom products littered all over the floor of the shower.

Fitting a shower basket in your enclosure gives you additional showering space, and centrally locates all your products so they’re within easy reach. Baskets won’t collect water from the shower, and are designed to prevent your bath products from slipping into the tub or onto the floor.

Corner baskets really maximise the space in the shower, slotting snugly into the corner of your shower enclosure. If you’ve got lots of products – or a busy family bathroom – then a double or even triple corner basket could provide the perfect solution.

Baskets come in a range of sizes and shapes, such as rectangular, hexagonal or even semi-circular, so you’re bound to find something to suit your space. A single wire basket is a nifty solution for having all your bath products within reaching distance, whilst you’re having a long soak in the tub.

Our baskets are made from solid brass and are chrome plated, meaning they’re built to last and easy to clean (so they’ll always look shiny and stylish no matter how much they get drenched in the shower).


If you’re going for a clean, minimalist aesthetic, simple shelves are a good way to add convenient storage, whilst complementing your design. Similar to baskets, shelves can slot snugly into the corner of your shower. Wire shelves have a fuss free appearance, and make a subtle addition to your bathroom.

By design, glass shelves are a popular option for contemporary or minimalist designs. Double corner units are space-saving solution, which adds a touch of class to any space. If you want to avoid clutter around the basin area, toughened glass shelves are excellent for storing products, cosmetics and other items, without being obtrusive.

Keeping your bathroom clean and tidy can be aided with the addition of some simple storage solutions. Clutter-free showers, basins and tubs not only keep the appearance of a clean space to retreat to at the end of a hard day, but also make for a more pleasant bathing and showering experience.
