Chrome and Glass D Shaped Wall Shelf Unit
Advantages: Deep shelves. Sturdy. Looks nice. Price. Towel rail and shelves.
Disadvantages: Towel rail not big enough for chunky towels.
I have the Argos Chrome and Glass D Shaped Wall Shelf Unit in our second bathroom - and it's been in there for approproximately the last 12 months. I can't remember how much we paid for it, but I do now that it is currently being sold by Argos for £19.99 - which I don't think is a bad price for a bathroom fixture and fitting that is serving us well. Essentially this is a combined shelf and towel rail and so it's neat and compact design is good for bathrooms where space may be an issue.
From what I remember, assembly wasn't too complicated - and the reason I know that is because I did it and I'm not very DIY-girfted - and fixture to the wall was also easy and it still feels really secure. I think this is probably because it actually feels quite lightweight and so unless you put very heavy items on it, then the stress on the fittings is minimal. Having said that, we have shampoo bottles and moisturising tubs etc. as well as a couple of towels hanging from it and it seems to cope with this with no problem at all.
The unit is contemporary in design and it fits nicely in our contemporary styled bathroom - but it might look out of place in a more traditional bathroom. The structure is made of silver chrome which is smooth and stylish, and then the shelves are made out of glass. I have found the structure to be a nice marriage of sturdiness but finesse because the nice D-shape design, with the clean lines, adds a dimension which helps to stabilise it, but also make it look more interesting. The glass shelves are also a nice depth and deep enough to hold a variety of bottles and tubs - and so it's very convenient. However, the glass does need regular cleaning because it does get quite grubby quite quickly.
The towel rails are okay, but they are not optimal because I think they would need to be slightly wider to hold my most chunky towels. However, they are suited to hand towels with is generally what I keep hung on it.
Overall, I think this is a nice little unit for a small bathroom - and I recommend it.
Summary: I like it.
