Incorporating grey tones into interior design has gone from strength to strength over the last decade, as homeowners embrace the ‘less is more’ attitude with more neutral, versatile tones of grey. Balanced, sophisticated, and timeless, grey interiors psychologically eliminate anxiety to offer a calming, safe and secure environment.
Predictions point to grey tones moving into an accent position rather than a main colour from 2020 and beyond. It can’t be denied that grey pairs beautifully with softer pastels and earthy tones. In line with the latest home décor trends, grey windows, doors and glazed extensions have become the ideal way to accentuate and modernise homes throughout South Yorkshire, as they never detract from the building’s original features.

The 5 most popular shades of grey for home improvements in Sheffield & South Yorkshire
Anthracite grey – RAL 7016
Currently the most popular shade of grey for windows and doors, eye-catching natural Anthracite grey infuses subtle hues of blue, green and purple. Its submetallic lustre is modern yet edgy, making it a favourite for replacement windows and composite doors.
No. 38 grey – RAL 7035
Unique to the gorgeous Residence Collection, No. 38 grey windows exquisitely intermix with delicate pastel interiors to instil a calming effect in both new and traditional homes throughout Sheffield and beyond.
Agate Grey – RAL 7038
Also known as ‘Painswick’, this subtle blend of light green and grey is fast becoming a firm favourite with heritage property owners, as it perfectly complements light/yellow tinged stonework.
Slate grey – RAL 7015
Slat grey is a revered choice with both classic and contemporary styled homes. This versatile shade has a slight azure tinge which allows it to pair with both bright and muted accent colours.
Basalt Grey – RAL 7012
Inspired by magnesium & iron-rich volcanic rock, Basalt Grey windows and doors look particularly striking on modern homes and classic red brick buildings alike.
Please note that RAL colour codes are the nearest match only and, therefore, not exact matches with the foil. Furthermore, there may be longer lead times for specialist grey hues. Window replacements with sash horns may not be available in certain colours either.
