Shower CaddySherrilThis fits perfectly onto our shower rail and holds shampoo, conditioner, soap and other items easily.5
VanVanessaDidn’t fit behind shower rail which it’s supposed to be affixed to.3
Excellent and cheap Justwhat weRobertExcellent and cheap Justwhat we needed5
Easy to attach and is solidGlenI use 2 of these on a Methven rail - looks great attaches easy and easy to keep clean4
Very stylish and functionalDanielIt fits with standard shower systems and is the perfect depth to avoid hitting the wall. Style-wise, it fits seamlessly with the rest of the shower equipment. The drainage system keeps it clean but of course the water dries on the metal leaving wet spots.5
Best shower accessoryJohnFits in perfectly, hides soaps and shavers, also accommodates hooks to hang flannels from underneath.5
Great designHstephThis works so well, looks like it’s part of the shower rail rather than the ones that look like an after thought5
FantasticSleepyZippyBought two a couple of weeks ago and it was super easy to install. Doesn't budge at all once installed correctly and it looks like it was built in (at least for my shower system). Cant believe I hadn't come across it before, would have saved me so much time and money looking for something that worked5
looks far more expensive than it isdragonflywingzI bought this for my new bathroom and it was a perfect storage solution for our shower rail so that we could keep shelves and niches out of the design. Simple and easy to fit and no drilling of tiles.5
Great ideaKala123Works fantastic, quick and easy to install.5
Simple But GreatTintinpatingBought 2 of this a few weeks ago and looks great on the bathroom. there was just a slight minor issue as it could get a bit loose. I'm not sure why because initial instalment was working ok but a after a few showers it slides a little from the shower bar. But still liked it compare to those shower caddy that rust immediately.5

Plastic is a key material for IKEA and remains so going forward. It is strong, durable, lightweight and versatile. It is a main component in a large amount of our products and has a wide variety of applications from surface materials such as paint and foil, to screws and shelf pegs.
There is a lot of valid concern regarding how plastic impacts the environment and at IKEA we take this very seriously. As part of our larger circular journey and transition from virgin fossil based material, we are working hard to change all plastic in our home furnishing products to plastic made from recycled and/or renewable raw materials.
Several of them were invited to a workshop. They all had different homes and life situations. Some were Swedes who lived in houses in the woods. Others were from Italy and France. Some lived alone, and others with a partner or children.
The engine of the shower
This is where the shower range comes in. We want to make it simple to save water and energy. With smart technology, the thermostatic mixer and shower arm make this simple.
Antony Smith, who was part of the shower development team, has worked with mixers and showers since he finished university long ago. He describes the thermostatic mixer as the shower's engine
"It's the mixer which ensures that there's an even water flow and the right temperature". Antony explains that it's thanks to the thermostatic mixer that your shower water is not affected if someone turns on the water in the kitchen. You can calmly continue singing in the shower ― without the risk of being burned or getting a cold shock.
The mixers that the team developed also have a 38°C safety stop button, so there's no risk of you or any child accidentally raising the temperature.
Shower testing in swimwear
Another important key to creating both a comfortable and sustainable shower range is the small washer that sits in the shower arm which regulates the water flow. The challenge for the team was to find just the right balance between the water flow and pressure, so that you can use less water without affecting the shower experience.
There was only one way for the team to see if they succeeded:
"When we went to the supplier in China to test the first prototypes, we all packed our swimwear," says Antony smiling.
With his swimwear on, he tested different water spray functions: full, mesh, mist, massage and various combinations of them.
"How people prefer to shower is individual, and with the different streams, we allow everyone to adapt their shower experience. And maybe you'll enjoy showering a little more when you know that it's both water and energy efficient."
Working together to find common bathroom needs
For an entire day, they examined people’s frustrations and dreams, including their own.
One of the participants was Luca Battistelli who has been with IKEA since 1992.
”I’m not a product development expert,” Luca says, “but you bring your own experience. Some things can be very specific to a person or country, but it’s easier to find things in common than things that are very different.”
Designing little details that make life better
Two designers worked together to solve the challenges identified in the workshop. Take the clutter from lack of space to hang things. Our towel holders already save space with swiveling bars, but they added bars that extend for more tidiness.
And what about shared bathrooms? VOXNAN and BROGRUND have styles you can mix and match so everyone’s happy. The accessories have identical wall brackets, too, so if your style or needs change, you can easily swap things without making new holes.
”It’s not a revolution,” Okan says. “It’s just the little details that can help people turn their bathroom chaos into harmony.”
Only recycled or renewable plastic
Plastic is most commonly derived from oil and gas, which are non-renewable fossil sources. These sources do not renew themselves and will eventually be depleted.
Our ambition is that by 2030, all plastic used in our products will be based on renewable or recycled materials. Renewable plastic is made from materials such as vegetable oil, corn, wheat grain and sugar cane. Recycled plastic allows us to give a second life to non-biodegradable products such as PET bottles that would otherwise end up in landfill. Using recyclable sources also lessens our dependency on oil as a raw material.
Currently more than 40% of our plastic products are based on recycled and renewable materials and our aim is to reach 100%. As we add products made from recycled and renewable materials to our offer, we hope to inspire other companies to do the same.
Phasing out single-use plastic
Single-use plastic items pollute ecosystems if not disposed of responsibly. As part of our commitment to people and the planet, all single-use plastic products from the global home furnishing range were phased out in 2020. This includes items such as plates, cups and plastic straws offered in our restaurants, bistros, and cafes. These were replaced by disposables made from 100% renewable sources.
PET and PP, our most commonly used plastics
Polythylene terephthalate (PET) and Polypropylene (PP) are durable, hygienic and shatter-resistant plastics. They absorb very little water and have good chemical resistance. Both PET and PP can be reused and recycled, which reduces waste and gives the product several lives through use and reuse.
PET is the most recycled plastic in the world and can be used for many different purposes such as plastic bottles and containers for packaging food and beverages as well as for personal care products, pharmaceuticals and many other consumer products. At IKEA we mainly use recycled PET in boxes, filling material for textiles and kitchen front foil.
PET is approved by health-agencies as safe to use for food and beverage. IKEA uses recycled PET that is post-consumer based, which means it is based on collected and sorted PET bottles.
Clean and safe
IKEA takes product safety very seriously and all products are tested and comply with the strictest possible laws and safety standards on all IKEA markets. Customers should always feel confident that products bought at IKEA are safe and healthy to use. IKEA wants to minimize or totally refrain from the use of chemicals and substances that can be harmful to people and the environment.
Together, we can do more
Our journey towards only using recycled or renewable plastic will take some time and require new ways of doing things, but we are determined to take responsibility and find new solutions. We want to give our customers the possibility to choose products made from more sustainable materials that can be recycled again one day. Together, we can make a big difference!
What is ABS plastic?
ABS plastic is a strong and stable material with a glossy surface – making it perfect for especially used everyday objects like cutlery drawers, kitchen utensils, toothbrush mugs and bathroom hooks. ABS is made from oil-based, non-renewable raw materials, but development is progressing and we are using more and more recycled ABS. It is an important step towards our goal of only using plastic that is recycled or from renewable sources.
Puts everything where you need it
Tired of all the bottles scattered around in the shower? You can easily solve this problem with shower shelves. They can be attached on any of the existing IKEA shower rail and have a smart function that allows you to adjust them up or down. No more bending over – all those shampoos, conditioners and other things are within easy reach. The bathroom accessory range and shower sets are fully coordinated so you can enjoy a tidy shower with a personal style.
