My shower has a "shower niche" — I had it added when the bathroom was remodeled, so I'd have room for shower gel, shampoo and conditioner bottles. (And no, I don't transfer my liquids into uniform bottles, as Martha Stewart recommends.) People can get pretty creative with these niches, as you can see on Houzz.
But what do you do with all the bottles (and the bar of soap, if you use one) if you don't have a shower niche?
Well, you could always use a standard shower caddy, and there are some pretty nice ones. This one comes from Hammacher Schlemmer, and Simple Human might be another good place to look. There are a large number of other choices, too. Update on July 14, 2014: Hammacher Schlemmer no longer carries this product.
Or you could get the very fun-looking Octopus Shower Caddy, sold at Sleek Identity, Uncommon Goods, Made in Design, PA Design, and other sites. Update on July 13, 2014: Sleek Identity's website has disappeared, so look elsewhere for this product.
If you have room for a shower seat, you can get one that also has a place to store your shower supplies. This one, in teak, comes from Frontgate, but I've also seen one at Hammacher Schlemmer.
And finally, here's a new idea: the Shower Shelf, which transforms a shower towel bar into a shelf.
