Redecorating your bathroom on a budget? I've been there – not too long ago, actually, and here's everything I bought to spruce up my space on a budget. Whether you are just searching for some towel storage to show off your fluffy towels to guests, or perhaps you are fed up with eyesore bottles of the kids' shampoo being on display? We understand, and we can definitely help.

A few months ago I tasked myself with the (rather slow) job of redecorating my bathroom without spending an arm and a leg on it. So, I did lots of online shopping for everything from new bathroom storage cabinets to a brand new electric shower, and here's how it turned out. Of course, you don't need to buy all of these things to give your bathroom a new lease of life – just one of them may make a huge difference. For me, it was switching from a shower curtain to a bath screen for 100 odd pounds. Probably the best money I have ever spent on my bathroom!
