Comes with two mounting methods: sticky adhesive or screws.

Promising review: “I didn’t have much hope for this product due to my placement of them: right by the shower door. I figured the steam would cause the sticker to come off, resulting in the shelves collapsing (aside from me also putting heavy perfume bottles on them). BUT they actually hold up a good amount of weight and the shelves are still sturdy. I love it!” —Balsam

Get it from Amazon from $25.49+ (available in two styles).

BTW we also have these things to take your bathroom to the next level.

Promising review: “I’m obsessed with this shelf! The hand detail is so fun and trendy without being something that will go out of style anytime soon, while the glass shelf helps to make it not too overwhelming or distracting. I used it in my bathroom and have had no issues with it, so far. Plus, it helps add storage to my small bathroom without taking up a ton of room. Would recommend to anyone, and if I had the room, I would have gotten two!” —Mac5

Get it from Anthropologie for $58+ (available in three sizes).

4. A three-tier bathroom wall shelf for storing extra rolls of TP, so you don’t have that “Oh 💩” moment when you notice there’s no toilet paper on the roll.

Promising review: “These little shelves are great! With three kids our bathroom counter got very cluttered, but these shelves saved the day. Each of my kids now have their own little bins on the shelf. Because they’re small enough, I could put two of them on one wall, and then one on another wall. I recommend having a stubby screwdriver handy because when you are trying to screw the screws in for the shelves, there’s not enough room between them for a full size screwdriver. They seem very sturdy for what they are and they work perfectly!” —KeWEE

Get it from Amazon for $23.99+ (available in two sizes and two colors).

Promising review: “I live in a 640 square ft house, so every inch of vertical space is precious. This solved my lack of a linen closet. It’s not the typical tiny shelves that hold a plant and maybe a tissue box, this one is large and sturdy if you put it together right, and use the wall anchors. It’s pretty, especially in a country cottage.” —Mary Clark

Promising review: “I love this shelf. It is so solid and the marble slab is beautiful. I put it above our wall-mounted toilet in our remodeled master bath, and it really adds to the luxurious European hotel feel — and provides some much needed storage in our very small bathroom. Due to the placement of our wall studs, one bracket is in a stud and the other is not, so we used the anchor provided. It feels very sturdy and it doesn’t seem like it will fall or grow wobbly over time. It looks like I spent a lot more on this shelf than I did! I love it.” —Bethany

It’s quite lightweight and feels a little wobbly when it’s empty and you move it, but I’ve had no problem with it once I put towels, etc., on the shelves. The chrome is also very shiny and adds a touch of elegance to my tiny bathroom.” —Peggy Soden

It’s doing very well in the bathroom considering the amount of moisture it is exposed to (it’s been up for three months and still looks brand new).
