Ceramic Soap Dishes

Stylish 700 Series Ceramic Soap Dish Choices
There are 4 design choices for ceramic tub and shower soap dishes, the square vanity soap dish, and two fully recessed soap dishes. Most of the soap dish designs other than the fully recessed are available in multiple mounting methods. But not all mounting methods for each. The product photos below will describe which come in which mounting methods.

All the soap dishes below are available in over 80 colors each, and many in the stoneware colors too shown on the Exceptional 900 Series page.

The paragraphs below explain the various mounting methods to help you determine which soap dish is right for your application.

The BA thin-set mount:
They must set into a 1/4" deep or slightly greater depth hole. Many people have referred to this as a recess mount. That terminology is not correct. Thin-set basically gets put in place where a piece of tile has been omitted, and thus it attaches to the same wall surface that the tile is attaching to. And it can be applied using the same adhesive. The 1/4" projection on the back is not the full size of the back. The full width and height of the soap dishes will overlap adjacent tiles and grout lines. All the tub soap dishes and vanity soap dish are available in a thin-set mount.

The BF and AR flat back mount:
Designed to be glued onto ANY flat surface. Glue them over tile, drywall, greenboard, or sheet rock. Flat back does not require the same inlay opening as thin-set. Flat back is great as an after thought mounting. You have a fully tiled wall and would like to add a soap dish, you can do so with the flat back mount without having to chisel out any tiles.  It saves time, and saves a lot of muscle work. Great for mounting over smaller cut outs in tile too. For some vanity soap dishes that were a thin-set mount, but half height, they had fit into 4" wide by 3" high holes. Most of the thin-set soap dishes require a 4x4 hole. To save on attempting to cut your hole larger, you can just use a flat back mount right over the top of the hole and hide the hole. Most 700 Series soap dishes are available in flat back.

The BC clip on mount:
Great for drywall or wood walls. Can be used on tile too if you wish. Each clip on soap dish will come with a mounting clip, plastic anchors, and screws. The clip mounts on the wall first, the soap dish slides down onto it. On tile, you would need to drill into the tile with a ceramic tile drill bit, and then definitely use the plastic anchors. A screw pushing against the plastic anchor is better than a screw pushing against ceramic tile. Less chance of breaking the tiles.

Use caution when sliding your soap dish onto the mounting clip when on a tile surface. The backs of the soap dish are not glazed. They could scratch your tile as you slide them downward. Hold them steady and forward as you slide them down. When you reach the down position on the tapered mounting clip, they will snug in place. You can add a tiny bit of adhesive behind them for a more permanent mount if you like.

The BM725 and BM782 mud set mount:
Similar to the BA725, but the protrusion on the back requires a 1-1/4" deep hole to fit into. Popular with professional tile setters. Commonly put in with a mud pack (mortar). Very common for mounting on sheet rock.

The BR794 and BR795 recessed mount:
These two soap dishes require a 3-1/2" deep hole to fit into. They are the same width, but the BR794 is taller and can be used as a tumbler holder too. It has a lot of interior space. These are very common for shower stalls as they do not protrude more than 3/8" past the tile surface. Make sure you have sufficient wall depth for them to fit into. Be aware of where your pipes are in the wall.

Clicking or tapping on any of the abundant soap dish images above will allow you to see expanded photos of the back sides so you can see how the mounting methods look. When mounted, those with multiple mounting methods appear the same from the surface.

To view images of all the ceramic color choices, please select that link.

AC Products also publishes a color cross reference chart of how their colors coincide with some popular tile brand colors. If you know your tile brand and color code, you can see if there is a reference in that chart. There use to be over 140 color choices, now that has been reduced to around 80ish. Some colors are just way out of date and not as popular anymore. Keeping glaze made in obsolete colors just does not work. Glaze dries out over the years and becomes unuseable. So some colors just have to be deleted.

Then we have a third help page set up for colors. Our color comparing and selection help page. We have taken group photos of the whites, light tones, greys, browns, blues, greens, etc. For the greys and browns this is helpful since there are about a dozen choices each in those tones. And telling the difference between white, biscuit, and bone is sometimes tough when you have no reference to go by. So that page can be very helpful when trying to match to tiles in your bathroom.
What we stock, and what we order as requested:
There are a lot of choices, and when you consider that all are available in 80ish colors, we're not kidding.

All of the above are stocked in C1 gloss white. All but the AR171 are stocked in C5 gloss black. Pretty much the entire Stylish 700 series is stocked in C1 and C5. These items can ship immediately.

Many of the popular soap dishes, models 725, 728, 768, and BR794 are also stocked in C3 gloss bone and C70 gloss biscuit. A few other odds and ends are stocked in a few more colors that prove popular per item, but not too many. There are just so many possibilities. The majority are ordered as we receive orders for them. Average lead time is three weeks for us to receive most before we are able to ship onward to you. Please plan that into your installation strategy. Direct ship orders are possible, but AC Products does have a minimum order. And odds are, it will still take them two weeks to make the color that you need.

Volume discounts are available for companies needing a lot. Inquire with us. All soap dishes on this page are available to everyone, homeowners and contractors, and in any quantity. We offer various scaled discounts on large to huge orders for companies needing large quantities.

The Stylish 700 Series is large. We have divided it upon several pages. For a complete summary, view the Stylish 700 summary page
