Recessed Ceramic Soap Dishes, Shampoo Caddies, & TP Holders - minimal protrusion off your wall

This page will have all the FULLY recessed items on it, including the new shower caddies.

Recessed = Basically, you need a deep hole in your wall. Generally the depth of the 2x4's framing your walls. Recessed bath hardware sits into a 3-1/4" to 3-3/4" deep hole. The normal 2x4 depth is 3-1/2". When you add the drywall, green board, or sheet rock onto the studs, then your hole depth is closer to 4", which will accommodate all these pieces with ease.

Fair to point out. Some walls are block, some have the 2x4's in sideways. Good idea to know that you have enough depth in your hole to accommodate these pieces. Watch out for plumbing pipes in your walls too.

Thin set = Not on this page. Go to the Stylish 700 Series page for a TON of thin set bath hardware selections.

The BR796 recessed toilet paper holder and BR794 recessed soap dish are shown first. They are a matching set, though you would never mount them side by side. The soap dish is for the tub or shower and will get wet. The TP holder is for the toilet area and should not get wet (because of the paper). Dimensions and pricing will follow every picture.

Colors: we will add notes below each item about which colors it comes in. Also, about those we stock, and those we order as requested. Color options are shown on the view colors by image page

What we stock:
The BR796 and BR794 both are stocked in C1, C3, C5, C12, C16, C34, C70, M31, M66, and M81 colors.

In the Stoneware selections:
In this group picture below, which helps you visualize the size differences too, the BR994 and BR996 are shown in the front row. BR994 and BR794 are the same soap dish. The 7 in the part number changes to a 9 because the Stoneware colors are the 900 Series. Same for the BR996 and BR796. So the dimensions we noted above for the BR794 and BR796 are the same for the BR994 and BR996. Stoneware prices will be below this picture.

Additional Toilet Paper information before we go on to the shower caddies:
Since the C1 gloss standard white and C70 gloss biscuit are the two most popular colors and sometimes get mixed up, here is a comparison view of the light colors. C70 biscuit is the Kohler Biscuit. C1 white is American Standard white. Bone is a very pale tan color. Almond is a little darker than bone. If you happen to need the purest white to match bright white Subway tiles, that will be color C34 for gloss ice white.
Colors that we have images of can be viewed at this link.

Ceramic TP holder light color comparison

And a commonly asked question:
The BR796 and BR996 recessed toilet paper holders will hold normal double size rolls.
The new roll shown below is the double roll POM tissue from Sam's Club.
This TP roll measured 4-3/4" in diameter and there was still a little room left over in the TP holder.
If you use super jumbo rolls and triple rolls, they will NOT fit into this holder.
Rolls up to 4-7/8" in diameter will work fine. Anything just over 4-7/8" will drag when attempting to unroll some paper.

BR791, BR793, and BR797 recessed shower caddies - soap and shampoo holders

We gave you a glimpse of the 3 shower caddies shown with the recessed TP holder and soap dish. These are the larger recessed items. The BR797 soap and suds unit has been around for a long time. And now AC Products has brought out two larger caddies, larger in width and interior depth. They will hold a lot more. The BR791 and BR793 are available in limited colors, and we will note all that info below.

BR791 single compartment recessed shower caddy

The new BR791 shower caddy will be offered in limited colors for now. This shower caddy offers nice one compartment storage for a series of bottles, shampoo, body wash, and more. And you can fit taller bottles into it. BR991 is the same caddy. BR991-S904 Smoke Grey Stone shown below.

The water drain grooves have a downward slope to them. The ridges are level so bottles do not slide off. Thus the ridges appear taller toward the front of the caddy.

Recess opening needed is 12-1/8" x 12-1/8" x 3-3/4" deep into wall. Good idea to have 3-3/4" of depth.

Inside opening: 11" x 11" at the front, but tapers to 9-3/4" x 9-3/4" at the back. 3-1/2" interior depth. The frame border is 7/8" on the top, left, and right. The bottom frame border is 1-1/8". The drain grooves do have a downward slope so water will not collect in the caddy. The drain ridges are level to keep bottles from sliding out.

Color codes listed above are the only colors that the BR791 and BR991 come in. (for now)
Click-here-to-order2 or call us at 813-633-7544

The other 8 available colors generally take us 3 to 3-1/2 weeks to receive. Color images page
Direct ships are available, but it still takes AC Products 2 weeks to make this item if they do not have it in stock.

 

BR793 three-compartment recessed shower caddy

The new BR793 THREE-compartment shower caddy is also offered in limited colors (for now). This shower caddy offers great stackable storage as well as taller storage for bigger bottles. More of a his and hers caddy. Place a bar of soap in the small compartment, smaller bottles above it, and family size bottles to the right. The taller larger compartment is always on the right side, there isn't a flip version.

The water drain grooves have a downward slope to them in all 3 compartments. The ridges are level so bottles and soap do not slide off. Thus the ridges appear taller toward the front of the caddy.

Shown below: BR793-C1 gloss white, BR793-C5 gloss black, and BR993-S904 Smoke Grey Stone.

And in the Stoneware colors:
ACP-BR993-S904 Smoke Grey Stone
ACP-BR993-S909 Dark Bone Stone
ACP-BR993-S910 Sandstone

Price: $174.00 each in the three stoneware colors

Dimensions: 12-7/8" wide by 12-7/8" tall. Can vary by 1/8" to 1/4" depending upon kiln firing and clay density. Only 3/8" thick lip/flange projection from wall. Flange overhang on surface is 1/2" on all 4 sides.
Recess opening needed is 12" x 12" x 3-5/8" deep into wall. Good idea to have 3-3/4" of depth.

Inside openings:
The soap bar compartment on the bottom left is 5" wide x 2-3/4" tall x 3-1/2" deep.
The smaller bottle opening above it is 5" wide x 7-1/2" tall x 3-1/2" deep.
The taller bottle opening on the right is 5-1/2" wide x 10-3/4" tall x 3-1/2" deep.
Thus the vertical divider is not centered in the caddy. It is shifted left to give you more room for bigger bottles on the right.

The drain grooves do have a downward slopes so water will not collect on any of the shelf platforms. And the drain ridges are level to keep bottles and bar soap from sliding out. We will have more pictures below showing some helpful information.

Color codes listed above are the only colors that the BR793 and BR993 come in. (for now)

HOW TO ORDER:
Select from the part numbers written below each product picture. Prices are shown after them.
This link: Click-here-to-order2 opens our on-line ordering form. You have seen it in several places on this page. You also can phone in your order, especially if you are unclear about the part numbers.
813-633-7544

Remember to complete your part numbers with the color code. Since many items are available in approx 100 colors, we do not list every conceivable part number individually with every color code. That would be an extremely long list. So add the color code to the end of the base model number (-# is the placeholder in the part number where you will enter the color code number).

You can view color images on this page when you need to review them. There is also a color by number cross reference chart. The 6 stoneware colors are shown on our view colors page and also the Series 900 page.

You can order On-line, via FAX, or by phone at 813-633-7544. Mail orders and e-mail orders accepted too.

 

Helpful product photos:
This concludes the part number, pricing and dimensional info for this long page. The rest of the page will show a few more shower caddy pictures to help you with your selections. And then also the mud set items are shown below for reference. Detailed info about the mud set items is on the Stylish 700 Series page. Links to all the AC Products pages are in the top border of this page.

Hmmm? What can I fit in the BR793 and BR993 shower caddy? Family size bottles.

Back view of model BR993 shower caddy
What does the back of the big shower caddy look like? The BR993 is shown above.  The BR791 and BR991 look similar with the thick reinforcement wall on all four sides, but the interior would be just the one compartment.

Eclectic-ware shower caddy and recessed soap dish shown side by side
Images shown separately on a computer screen do not do them justice. The BR991 and BR994 look identical in photos. And if you have no size comparison to judge them by, how do you know that they are different? Shown above, you can see that the 13 x 13 shower caddy is 4 times bigger than the recessed soap dish. Oh, did we mention that some people use the recessed soap dish as a tumbler holder also? It just isn't for soap.

recessed ceramic shower caddy - ceramic shampoo and soap holder from Eclectic-ware
The BR797 shower caddy is very popular. It serves the needs for most people. But it is smaller. And with the advent of the new BR791 and BR793, it may stay the choice for smaller showers. You have to consider your needs. We have many customers that use corner shelves stacked in a tier of 2 or 3 to gain a lot of bottle storage in your shower or tub. But if you do not need a lot, if you just want room for a small bottle or two, sometimes small works better. And since the BR797 has been around longer, AC Products does make it in all gloss and matte colors. So that is a plus too.

AC Products jumbo shower corner shelf with bottles
Only fitting that we just mentioned corner shelves that we should show you one. This is the BA980 jumbo corner shelf, a.k.a. model 780. Remember, the 7 and 9's change in the part numbers just to represent the stoneware colors in the 900 series. We do have a web page for more info on the corner shelves and that link is in the top border of this page with all the other page links.

 

 

Did you find this page helpful? There is a lot of info on it. Please bookmark it for future reference. Share it too. Tell your grandmother. This recessed bath hardware is not easy to find. Most giant hardware stores do not wish to offer it. Most of it is made to order, thus it is custom. It is only part of what we do. We offer options not commonly found in retail stores. And our products are available to everyone.

 

The below two pictures have been left on this page for reference because they are related.

Mud Set bath hardware (semi-recessed in 1-1/4" depth)

AC Products mud set ceramic bathroom hardware
We use to display the mud set items on this page also. We refer to them as Semi-recessed. The mud set items require a 1-1/4" deep or deeper opening for them to fit into. Look at the next picture showing them from the back.

Mud set soap dishes and towel bars back view

Please take note: The term "Mud Set" does refer to a mounting method where the bath hardware pushes into a mud pack (generally smooth mortar). The mud forms around the back of the ceramic and holds it in place in the wall. This is how many professionals install this hardware. They also place horizontal ribs in the walls so when using a mud pack, the mud doesn't flow all the way to the floor inside the wall. Generally the mud pack is thick enough that it doesn't run, but it is heavy. Until it dries, it could sag.

The recessed items on this page can also be installed using a mud pack. Or you can just frame out your cavities a bit more tightly and install them with adhesive caulking. There are several ways to go about it.

And this is something we find important. Recessed bath hardware means the majority of the piece is mounted in the wall. Mud set means it sets in the wall a shorter depth, such as the 1-1/4" we just mentioned. Thin set refers to an extremely popular mounting method where the bath hardware has a 1/4" to 5/16" protrusion on its backside and that fits into a shallow hole left by not placing a tile there. Please do not mix up these 3 terms. For a greater explanation on them, we have this web page set up: Mounting Methods

If interested in the mud set items, part numbers and pricing are on the Stylish 700 Series page. Part numbers are ACP-BM725-#, ACP-BM730-#, ACP-BM777-#, and ACP-BM782-#. (The # in the part number is where you will place the color code to complete the part number. Each of these 4 items comes in approx. 100 colors, stoneware colors excluded.) Go to the 700 Series page to learn more.
