People Are Ditching Their Upper Kitchen Cabinets and I Don't Think I'm on Board

Upper cabinets are starting to disappear from kitchens, and I’m not sure how to feel about it. It all started with the open-shelving phenomenon, and now, in some cases, it has morphed into this total lack of anything structural above the countertops. On the one hand, it is visually beautiful. You can really go to town with tile—think an uninterrupted, ceiling-high wall of subways or a bold geometric backsplash. But on the other hand, where exactly are you supposed to put your stuff? You have drawers and lower cabinets, of course, but can that possibly be enough storage space when kitchens are meant to house all sorts of cookware, appliances, gadgets and serving pieces? I guess if you’re Marie Kondo, it’s not a problem. But for the undecided amongst us, let’s take a look at some kitchens without upper cabinets to see what might motivate someone to live this way.

Ultimately, your home should be a reflection of your personal style, but there are a bunch of emerging trends to help you spruce up your space. Below, 10 design experts share up-and-coming trends you may want to incorporate in your own living quarters:

Could This Bedroom Trend Actually Help You Get a Better Night of Sleep?

The one place I’ve been seeing a lot of color lately is in bedrooms, and things are getting dark. Navy and midnight blues, charcoal grays, deep teals, and even black, which is the trickiest to pull off if you don’t get a lot of natural light in your space. But it’s doable. The word on the street is that this trend might actually be beneficial for sleep—either it helps you drift off easily and/or stay asleep longer. And that’s because darkness, or lack of light, is key for melatonin production.

What’s less clear, however, is whether wall color or bedding color, for that matter—has any bearing on said melatonin production. My guess is that it can’t hurt, but I talked to a few pros to get their take on dark bedrooms and whether they’re actually beneficial for catching zzz’s or not.

The Huge Pinterest Trend You Can Easily Pull Off Yourself

In terms of recent trends, it doesn’t get much bigger than ceramic pottery. Inspired by the 1970s, sculptural clay vases, planters, and decor are everywhere these days—either adding subtle texture or bringing a full blown color explosion to our homes. Handmade ceramic pieces from the pros can be quite expensive (understandably, given the skill and work required to make them), but don’t let that sway you from loving and getting the look. It’s an easy trend to DIY using air dry and polymer clay. Here are some of our favorite projects to get you started.

7 Beautiful Wintry Color Palettes We Can't Get Enough Of

I love color and really think any shades can work year-round in your home if you’re a big enough fan of them. And sure, colors are seasonal—white feels like summer, pastels read as springy, and darker shades are always going to be more autumnal or appropriate for winter. But the magic is really in the mix. Most shades can go either way, depending on what you pair them with. So if you’re looking for a little palette inspo for a 2019 makeover or renovation, take a peek at these rooms. They’ve all channeled winter vibes but aren’t sparse, cold, or off putting in the slightest bit. Here’s why they work so well, for winter and beyond.
