When it comes to design homeowners are paying more attention than ever to the exterior of their home. It is not just about picking the right style of window, door or conservatory, colour is now a playing factor. The popularity of colour continues to grow due to the advances in technology and materials changing the way windows look and how they are used.
Introducing colour to the exterior of your home can completely transform the look and feel of the building. As such, the demand for more than just the “white UPVC window” is increasing rapidly. UPVC products are now readily available in a wider palette of colour finishes that range from traditional wood styles like “Golden Oak” right through to the more contemporary colours such as “Anthracite Grey”.
Grey, in particular, is taking over beige and white, offering a timeless, sophisticated look to compliment your home. We have most certainly seen grey become progressively popular at Fab Systems, with a massive 74% increase in grey uPVC windows.
Falling into the “neutral” colour family (along with shades of white, cream, black, brown and stone), the former dull and lifeless shade, is fast becoming the colour of trend thanks to inspirational TV programmes, such as Grand Designs.
Dubbed as “the new white,” grey works well across numerous house styles, from super trendy modern spaces to more traditional, period properties. The neutral colour can create a calming and elegant effect, both inside and outside your home, making it the perfect shade of choice if you want a subtle break from conformity.
What about a grey front door?

Grey is not only one of the most popular colours for uPVC windows, but for front doors too. Grey front doors are currently the best-selling door colour at Fab Systems, with 61% more home owners opting for this subtle, contemporary shade as a statement entrance to their homes.
However you choose to incorporate colour into your home, we believe grey is a great choice to get the best of both worlds, by adding style in a subtle way.
