Most tension corner shower caddies are often judged on their reliability to keep their tension after a period, and their aesthetics plus their other functionalities come only at second. Like, who could frown at someone for judging a tension corner shower caddy based on its reliability? If a tension corner shower caddy doesn’t have the “tension” to keep up then, unfortunately, it’s a worthless shower organizer in the first place.
One tension corner shower caddy that’s reliable yet gorgeous and functional is the mDesign Corner Tension which, at first glance, may look like any regular tension corner shower caddy. But looking at it closer, you’ll discover these little things that make the overall product great.
The mDesign Corner Tension is made by the company Metro Décor. The USA-based Metro Décor is a business that specializes in conceptualizing and manufacturing storage solutions for every room in a house and even in an office.
As of the time of writing, Metro Décor is the new kid on the block in the Amazon e-commerce scene because it is only recently flooded in the search results of the e-commerce giant when you’re looking for storage solutions, including, obviously, shower caddies.
The satin-colored mDesign Corner Tension’s banner feature is perhaps its Constant Tension technology that provides strong tension at any length of the pole for a long period. For specifications, the mDesign Corner Tension’s pole extends from 5 to 9 feet and has a non-skid rubber bottom to prevent it from sliding or slipping off your shower floor.
Even though the mDesign Corner Tension is bannering that technology, it’s not the only one in the market to highlight it also. The InterDesign York, which Shower Caddies INFO also reviewed, also has the same technology.
Furthermore, the mDesign Corner Tension also has four baskets of varying sizes to fit your shower essentials big and small. Your bar of soap is preferably placed in the topmost basket while your bulky shower essentials like conditioner and shampoo bottles are placed on the roomy bottom shelf.

|Tension Corner||41.60 x 23.20 x 11.10||05.20||VIEW AT AMAZON|
Some of the baskets have a plus factor in them with the addition of hooks and a mini towel bar. For the hooks, you can conveniently place your razors and other “hang-ables” like loofahs on it. On the other hand, there is also the handy mini tower bar where you can hang your face towels and washcloths.
Honestly, the mDesign Corner Tension is not a far cry to its fellow Constant Tension brother, the InterDesign York. Upon observation, there are no huge differences between the two – the number of baskets is the same, the InterDesign York also has its mini towel bar, and it has a deep and spacious last shelf where big bottles are supposed to stay.
The only noticeable difference between the two is that the mDesign Corner Tension sells less than the retailed price of its InterDesign counterpart. The listed retail price of the InterDesign York on Amazon floats around the $50 mark for the satin color version as of the time of writing. On the other hand, the mDesign Corner Tension sells less than $40 for the same satin color.
If you’re wanting a satin colored tension corner shower caddy but can’t find one affordable enough, then the mDesign Corner Tension might be the one you’re looking for.
mDesign Corner Tension Pros
Below are the pros for the mDesign Corner Tension. As a disclaimer, the pros mentioned are in no way paid by Metro Décor or Amazon in any manner.
- It’s rustproof. Advertised as made from durable steel with a rustproof finish, the mDesign Corner Tension sure delivers. As of the moment, there have been only isolated cases recorded where the tension corner caddy did indeed rust. These rusting cases might have been produced by other factors like the water quality that comes from the shower. But, hey, Metro Décor did not say it’s completely rust-resistant, didn’t they?
- It’s affordable. Just what has been said above, the mDesign Corner Tension is a little bit more affordable than its InterDesign brother if you’re scouting for a good satin colored tension corner shower caddy that’s beautiful plus reliable.
mDesign Corner Tension Con
Conversely, if there are pros to the shower organizer, there must also be cons to it. Listed below is the main con to the mDesign Corner Tension. Just like in the pros section, the listed con is in no way paid for by Metro Décor or Amazon
- Tedious assembly. Assembling a tension corner shower caddy is a no-brainer and no cause for a con since, of course, the long tension corner shower caddy won’t come out ready to use from the box because that will be a really big box if it happens. But if the assembly process is tedious and requires you to take around 30 minutes to assemble completely as one verified Amazon reviewer experienced, it’s a different conversation and a factor for a con.
Overall, the mDesign Corner Tension is rated four stars out of five. The main deciding factor for its rating was its complicated assembly process. Tension corner shower caddies must be user-friendly and don’t require multiple tools to set up.
An example of a tension corner shower caddy that’s easy to assemble (and also an alternative to the mDesign Bathroom Shower 4-Tier Constant Tension Caddy) is the Zenna Home 2130NN with its TwistTight feature. An Amazon reviewer estimated that it only took him or her less than 10 minutes to install the whole shower organizer.
With the above in mind, purchase the mDesign Corner Tension if you’re in your local mom and pop shop looking for a satin colored corner tension shower caddy that’s very useful and reliable at the same time. On the opposite side, if you want a corner tension shower caddy that doesn’t rust completely, you might want to read the review on the InterDesign York.
Lastly, you might also want to take a peek at the review on the Zenna Home 2130NN if you want a corner tension shower caddy that is easy to assemble and doesn’t lose its tension easily.
