In the current new construction areas, almost every house in our neighborhood has windows in anthracite (I'm assuming that's RAL 7016). Is this color standard for window manufacturers or are there other shades of gray for the same price? Do you all have very dark ones and have there been other, lighter shades of gray?
There are various standard colors (e.g., white, light gray, silver gray, anthracite, green, red, brown), and almost every manufacturer has a window in their own RAL color for an additional charge.
Just stop by your desired window manufacturer and window builder and ask them for a color chart. For example, we chose slate gray (RAL7015), which is also slightly lighter.
We have basalt gray, and we think it's a great color because it contrasts with anthracite, which I think you're getting a little tired of.
Braas bricks in gray go well with that.
We have RAL 7016 and we like it. Basically, you can get any color on the RAL scale. It's all a matter of price. The cheapest is still white.
I recommend our color: basalt gray (RAL 7012).
Not more expensive than standard anthracite, and not found on every new building.
We have RAL 7037 dusty gray
Renolit film in dark oak color (dark gray-brown grain). Inside and out.
White on brown-red antique clinker.
White inside, RAL7016 outside.
We also chose RAL 7012
— White is the cheapest for plastic windows.
— Then, depending on the manufacturer, there are so-called "standard" or "preferred colors" that cost a little more than white. These are usually anthracite, brown, light gray, etc. Д.
— And only if there is nothing in these preferred colors, then you can go to a custom RAL special color and use whatever color you want. However, this, of course, is even more expensive. You may have to use that special color for the garage door and front door if everything has to be the same color.

We don't care if everyone has it or just us, because we love it.
DB 703 metallic gray.
We will probably also use 7016 with white stucco. They just go well together, and we like it a lot. That combination is pretty rare, too. There is only one house with dark windows in the new building area where our current apartment is located, the rest are all white or 1-2 green.
