The Soap Dish

Updated on October 14, 2016

Welcome To The Soap Dish

You walk into a bath shop to browse, and ten minutes later you realize that you have become seduced by the soft, clean scent of an exotic soap. Once inside the store, you become intoxicated by the aromas, intrigued by the artisan soap designs, and enamored by the unique soap furnishings. Then you begin to imagine yourself in a deep hot tub full of suds surrounded by an elaborate display of soap dishes filled with luxuriously scented bath jewels.

The shop inspires many ideas for redecorating your private bath. But once you get home and look around, sometimes there are conflicts between ideas and reality, leaving you with thoughts about where to begin. Buying soap is relatively easy. But, installing a new soap dish sometimes is not. When purchasing a soap dish, you begin to think about quality, utility, ease of use, and functionality. Should you chose to remodel the bath, often built in soap dishes can be a chore to replace, and difficult to install.

With little care, The chrome recessed soap dish will stand the test of time and still maintain its shine. The example shown is still in use from when the house was built more than sixty years ago.
