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.

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.
