The Sauder Caraway Etagere has a great look about it without question.  A touch of elegance met by functionality to offer a fantastic bathroom etagere.  The cabinet with its receded translucent insert keeps the shelf looking clean.  It hides away the items in the cabinet while letting some color through.  This way, people won’t see anything gross.

What’s most appealing about the look of the Sauder Caraway Etagere is the top-most portion that allows for decorative pieces to be added.  This way, you can keep the functional space as such and decorate where you want to as well.  A win-win, it’s no wonder we’ve talked about it on our list of the best bathroom etageres.


By using open and closed shelves, you can keep public and private bathroom items separate.  Toilet paper or personal items can be hidden away in the space-saving cabinet and tissue paper can be available for guests.

The Sauder Caraway Etagere shelves are adjustable which is pretty standard on an etagere these days.  This gives you more flexibility with the overall look and storage capabilities of this bathroom etagere.  Maybe leave a shelf out to make room for a flower arrangement?  Or a taller picture frame?

One thing is for certain, if you’re looking for storage then this Sauder Etagere is worth considering.


Assembly is pretty rough with the Sauder Caraway Etagere.  The directions, tell you that it’s best to put it together with another person.  This way, couples can test their relationships strength and roommates can share a fun story too.

In any case, while the assembly might be a little tough the overall build isn’t too flimsy.  So long as you bolt the etagere to the wall, you should have no problem with the sturdiness.


Like we mentioned in our etagere overview, water and wood are not the most friendly with each other.  If your Sauder Caraway Etagere is going to be in proximity of your sink, you will definitely deal with some splash.  You will also most likely deal with urine splash (sorry guys).  In order to prevent any type of breakdown with this bathroom etagere, use lacquer to protect where needed.


For the look and customization of any bathroom etagere for over the toilet, you can’t go wrong with this unit at this price point. Its width is thin enough for most bathroom space and hides your goods inside and out. Although it suffers from some build issues, you’ll be challenged to find a better looking space saver for less than $80.  Click here to see more!
