There was a time when you could have any colour for new windows, as long as it was white. Well now there is a much wider choice, with grey double glazing being the popular choice of colour.
For the last 10 years or more you will have seen a transformation in the look of windows and doors that are installed in homes and commercial buildings – Colour.
Colour has come to the forefront
It has long been accepted for commercial buildings that architects and clients choose the colour of their windows and doors and it’s rare for such buildings to have standard white windows and doors installed.
Using a colour is the preferred choice. In recent years however colour has come to the forefront for British homes.
It is commonplace now to see matt white, black, sage, buttermilk, heritage greens as very popular colours, as well as dual coloured windows and doors. Grey double glazing however, is by far the most desirable colour of all.
A more contemporary theme
What has been behind the massive success of grey as a colour for today’s double glazing products? One reason is that the refurbishment of homes over recent years has taken on a more contemporary theme.
Another is that the colour grey has been very much led by architects in the design of their buildings.
Recent years have seen a boom in the building of apartment blocks all over the country and again the colour grey has more often than not been chosen as the standard colour for windows and doors.
For our homes, whilst white windows and doors will always be the core product it is quite common nowadays for consumers to choose white windows with contrasting grey doors, particularly grey bifolding doors.
Thinking about grey as a colour for double glazing does not instantly conjure up a positive image.
However in replacement doors and windows, grey double glazing is arguably the most popular colour after white and one only needs to see grey windows and doors installed to see how well they work with most types of properties.
