Royal Building Products has named Slatescape as its 2019 Exterior Color Trend of the Year. Evoking the hue of a storm-churned wave, Slatescape is a fresh take on the prominence of gray in exterior color trends in recent years. This mid-tone, blue-gray is a versatile shade that works equally well with other soft neutrals, as it does with brighter, punchier colors.
The Slatescape tone has inspired colors that are available across several brands in the Royal Building Products’ portfolio of siding products, including Royal Vinyl Siding (Storm), Exterior Portfolio (Oceanside) and Celect Cellular Composite Siding (Coastline).
“The Slatescape tone is a soothing combination of blue and gray that evokes feelings of calm and tranquility,” said Kristine Swint, director, interactive strategy and design at Royal Building Products. “We have seen home owners gravitating toward deeper blues and grays inspired by nature in recent years, and Slatescape is a beautiful expression of that trend.”
For 2019, Royal has added several new trending colors in shades of gray, blue, and brown to its siding portfolio:
• Celect Cellular Composite Siding - Castle Stone and Coastline
• Exterior Portfolio - Polaris, Nantucket, Peppercorn and Metropolitan Gray
• Royal Vinyl - Urban Bronze and Rockslide
Royal Building Products will unveil the new colors, as well as several new products, at the 2019 International Builders Show in Las Vegas.
