Kitchen color idea for 2009

Color in 2009 tackles a time of time transition with playful, optimistic hues. Check out the shades that color experts have identified as the hottest trends for 2009.

With transition on the horizon, color experts have identified a need for optimism as yellow emerges as a popular color choice in 2009.

Blue is also on the horizon for '09. Although dark blues have fallen out of favor to purple, bright and light blues are staying in the forefront.

From warm to cool, to black-ish to brown-ish, gray is the new neutral color for '09.

Punchy colors of punch--as in those fruitalicious red to pink to orange colors--will continue enliving kitchens in the new year.

Cabinetry Color vs. Wall Color
Painting your kitchen walls is an easy way to add color and personality to your space. Soft blue wall paints, which are calming and easy to live with, are also versatile as they work well with both light and dark cabinetry. The color can balance cabinetry with a darker finish, such as cherry spice, or accent cabinetry with a lighter finish like maple butterscotch.

Go Bold
If you prefer the colors in your home to be trendy, consider using dramatic hues to brighten your kitchen walls. If you are not quite ready to make such a bold commitment, buy a small container of paint and test it on an inconspicuous area of the wall to see how it works with your kitchen and your style. Or consider a smaller accent wall.
