I have the choice of any RAL colour for the triple sliders that we are going to install in our extension (6.4m wide in total). Im thinking of a warm grey, as outside render and inside kitchen will both be light warm greys. So I'm steering away from anthracite, which seems to be the standard, but is too blue for me. Wondering about umbra grey (7022) or quartz grey (7039).

Decent online pictures are hard to find, but these seem a good illustration:

umbra grey

quartz grey

Anyone got a view? Is darker better? I know it's a minor detail, but these are costing soo much of our budget, I want to try to get it right!

Totally depends on the colors inside and your look. I want for anthracite outside and tiefschwarz inside. Because we have a khaki render outside and lots of white inside and black steel.

Can you send pictures of your interior and exterior colour?

I personally wouldn't go for grey but, I think quartz looks the better of the two.

Thanks both! dynevoran, my plan is to pick the render and wall colour once we've sorted the doors vs the other way round. Current plan is going for this worktop in the kitchen (silestone merope), with the kitchen units in a combination of the next two colours.

Testificateman, why not grey, what would you go for instead?

I think they arent warm enough for you, but have you looked at the 9-thousand series as well? Greys pop up there.

Window, signal, traffic, graphite and Tele are the most popular I came across.
