Window Grills

The Positives and Negatives of Window Grilles

Published on

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

Positives:

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

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

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

  • Between-the-glass grilles and removeable grilles are available to make for a quick cleaning of the glass.

Now that we’ve read a handful of positives of window grilles, let’s read about the challenges associated with window grilles.

Negatives:

  • While there are a variety of designs out there,  some homeowners feel that certain grille styles can obstruct their view of the outdoors.

  • 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 needs to be cleaned, cleaning can be more of a challenge.

  • Replacement windows that feature grilles are typically more pricey than those that don’t have grilles.

Whether you’re moving and need to buy replacement windows or you’re simply considering them for your current home, window grilles may be a great add-on to your next set of windows.
