And keep your wet areas sparkling for longer!
There are many shower storage ideas you can implement easily at your place to protect your shower from accumulating unsightly dirt, grime, mould and soap scum so we have compiled this quick list of our five favourites – all designed to help extend the already long life of the work our expert grout professionals undertake.
No matter the style, size, shape or age of your shower, here are a few ways to avoid clutter building up that invites nasties to thrive and destroy your grout!
1. Simple shower caddy
These can be as minimalistic or complex as you need them to – the concept is not new and so there are heaps of different models available depending on your needs and budget. Our tip? Avoid cheap products that often rust and leave marks on your tiles. And please, avoid the temptation to stack too many large bottles in an undersized caddy – if it comes loose or falls you can risk chipping tiles and causing bigger problems! We found this one from Kmart for just $9!
2. Space saving corner shelves
These are great for ensuring you can store your shampoo bottles no matter how tall they are– the adjustable shelves mean you can keep everything off the floor of your shower safely and stylishly! This one from Bunnings is modern yet sturdy and would suit a variety of shower types.
3. Hanging mesh shower organiser
For those who are battling with a shower curtain/rod this is a great way to save space whilst maintaining a simple and clean aesthetic for your shower. Hanging via the rod and falling on the inside of the shower curtain, they help keep unsightly bottles and razors neatly tucked out of view and off the shower floor – this one would blend it well against any colour shower curtain, although you can get them in almost any colour or style if you prefer to make a statement with yours!
4. Suction Baskets
These are awesome for all the kids’ bath and shower toys – you can stop them building up in the bottom of your shower or bath and get them organised quickly and cost effectively! These ones from IKEA are only $10 each and you can get creative with placement to spruce up any shower or shower/bath!
5. Silicone bathroom storage holder
If you are the ultimate multi-tasker type who likes to brush their teeth in the shower too, this is for you! The silicone is easy to clean, and the lack of sharp edges makes it a safe alternative to some of the other shower caddy options that have sharper edges and protrude into your space. Great for the men who love to leave their razors on the shower recess too – this is perfect for keeping his shower tools neat and clean and off your fresh grout!
It is wise to regularly remove this type of shower caddy and clean underneath it to ensure there is nothing nasty building up behind it that could damage your tiles or grout in the long term if left unchecked.

I just wanted to thank your team for an amazing tile renovation that was recently carried out in our home. People are blown away by the transformation and the high standard of the work. I am one very satisfied customer. I would be more than happy for you to use me for a reference. Many thanks
He worked till 8pm on the second night to finish up and he applied multiple trade skills to make it come together for me. If he’s up for promotion/pay rise anytime soon I couldn’t think of anyone more deserving because of his work ethic and skill set. Just thought I’d let the company know how happy I am.
