It s easy to come to this conclusion, but a little more difficult to make a final decision on the type of shower caddy you want in your shower. That said, lets take a look at some the different styles and designs that are out there so you can start to get a better idea of what you want in your own shower.
Suction Shower Caddies- The brushed nickel suction caddy is very common and one of the more traditional ones that people usually think of at first. There s two main styles for these, but the principal is the same for both. The first one is a caddy that hangs from your brushed nickel shower arm and uses that as it s primary support, then there would be a single suction cup near the bottom that simply presses up against the wall of your shower to secure the caddy into place so it doesn t wiggle around or fall from the shower head. The second type of suction caddy is a little more sturdy and durable; this is the power lock caddy. The power lock model has four or more suction cups which allow it to be securely bonded to any wall in your shower as long as the walls are relatively smooth. These brushed nickel units usually cost a few bucks more than the aforementioned, but they re worth it in my opinion.
Tension Pole Shower Caddy- Brushed nickel tension pole caddies are becoming more popular these days. This one is preferred by people with newly renovated showers because of their fancy look. The idea behind these is simple, yet intuitive. Essentially, the caddy is a standard length pole with multiple baskets attached to it; you place the pole in the corner of your shower and use the ratcheting mechanism tighten the pole into place, so both ends are lodged between your ceiling and floor, hence the name "tension pole".
Similar to the brushed nickel shower basket, you can also get shower caddies that simply rest on the floor of your shower without any sort of wall attachment form. These are less common because they re usually a little more bulky and take up more space than the average person s shower can afford to lose.
Regardless of the style shower caddy you choose, you can always find the finish you want whether it s chrome, brushed nickel, oil rubbed bronze, or just plain old plastic. My only word of advice would be to take a look around the internet before buying in the stores because you can often find much better deals online than you can in the stores.
