During the late 20th early 21st centuries, homeowners tended to choose white as their entrance door colour of choice. In recent years, however, with the increasing popularity of composite doors, we’ve seen a move towards a broader colour spectrum. Leading this colour preference change is contemporary Anthracite Grey.
Anthracite Grey, also known as RAL 7016, is a dark grey colour with green and blue undertones which become apparent when exposed to natural light. It is a stylish colour choice and will tastefully complement both black and white colour schemes. Its rise in popularity is perhaps, due in part, to the increasing use of aluminium windows for residential installations. According to industry studies, Anthracite Grey is now the most requested powder coat colour for UK aluminium residential windows.

Anthracite Grey – The colour for 2019
2019 is only just over a month old but already we’ve had lots of installers requesting Anthracite Grey composite doors. It seems highly likely that their popularity is yet to reach its peak and they will continue to attract UK homeowners for the foreseeable future. This should perhaps come as no surprise. Anthracite Grey composite doors provide various other benefits which include:
- Versatility – the dark grey tone of Anthracite Grey is compatible with a range of styles and finishes. Anthracite Grey composite doors look great on modern properties and are also an excellent choice for more traditional homes. They perfectly complement brick, stone, and rendered finishes with their understated charm.
- Inconspicuous – their understated appearance adds to the beauty of a character property’s appearance. They will subtly blend in with any existing architecture and never detract from a building’s appearance.
- Low maintenance – all our composite doors feature a durable low maintenance GRP (Glass Reinforced Plastic) skin. Couple this with the dark shade of Anthracite Grey, and maintenance levels will be further lowered as unlike white doors, they won’t highlight every speck of dirt.
If current trends continue, Anthracite Grey composite doors look set to go from strength to strength in 2019. Make the most of this consumer trend now and add Anthracite Grey composites to your product list.
