Window Grills

The Positives and Negatives of Window Grilles

Published on

Window grilles are an often underappreciated part of your home’s windows. They give you the flexibility to meet both contemporary and traditional design needs, and with the host of styles and colors available, you can discover a combination to achieve whatever your heart desires.

Positives:

  • Removable between-the-glass grilles easily snap in and out so you can swap styles whenever you update your home or change styles or paint.

  • Regardless of the window grilles you choose, there are a handful of color choices to meet your design needs.

  • Grille options are available today with dual or triple pane insulated glass to offer more energy efficient options than historical grilles used with single-pane glass.

  • Between-the-glass grilles and removeable grilles are available to make it easier to clean the glass.

Now that we’ve taken a look at a handful of positives of window grilles, let’s read about the challenges that may come with window grilles.

Negatives:

  • While there are a host of designs out there,  some homeowners feel that certain grille styles might obstruct their view of the outside world.

  • Many window grilles are permanent once installed, limiting design flexibility in the future.

  • If grilles are bonded permanently to the surface of the glass that is cleaned, cleaning can be more of a challenge.

  • Replacement windows that tout grilles are sometimes more costly than those that don’t feature grilles.

Whether you’re moving and need to get replacement windows or you’re simply shopping around for your current home, window grilles could be a great addition to your next set of windows.
