One blogger shows us the way.

Because this bath is located in the basement, the designers lightened it up as much as they could. They painted the floor a stark white. “It can be scary to paint the floor, but it instantly opens the space,” says Walish. To keep it from feeling too bare and subdued, the designers included a little Southern charm. “Peter Fasano’s Coop wallpaper, which is modeled after chicken wire, adds a hint of the rural South and a playful nod to the North Carolina location,” says Walish. The old-timey washstand matches the charm of the retro-printed wallpaper.

If your bathroom medicine cabinet is anything like ours (a tidal wave of bobby pins and cosmetic tools just waiting to give way), you’re going to love this easy organizational hack from The Merry Thought blogger, Caitlin McGrath.

Her 2013 trick for keeping track of loose bathroom accessories (we’re looking at you, nail clippers!) was recently featured on Apartment Therapy, and we were struck by its brilliant simplicity. To be honest, it gave us a serious “why didn’t I think of that” moment. Luckily, she was more than willing to share her secret: magnets.

McGrath was able to transform her cluttered medicine cabinet into an organized paradise using only ceramic block magnets, floral fabric and Mod Podge. She offers a step-by-step guide on the blog, but basically all you have to do is cut a handful of shapes out of heavy-duty ceramic block magnets, Mod-Podge some floral fabric on top for a fun touch, and voila: the cutest, easiest organization system you ever did see!
