Occasionally they take the stone all the way into the ceiling, and you can even fabricate drawer fronts and hood vent covers out of pure stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cabinets are becoming warmer, some appliances are carrying another sort of dramatic turn. "Matte black fittings and hardware are increasing in popularity," Meyers says.

5. High Tech
1 fashion designer Niki Papadopoulos doesn't see going anywhere is"tech effortlessly incorporated into appliances," she says. The perfect example? Samsung's Family Hub fridge, which features a touch screen, inside cameras, and WiFi connectivity, which means you can search recipes from the refrigerator, see what's inside as you're searching, and leave notes and reminders to family members. Doesn't get much brighter than that.
