The Positives and Negatives of Window Grilles

The Positives and Negatives of Window Grilles

Window grilles are an often underappreciated piece of your home’s windows. They offer you the flexibility to meet both contemporary and traditional design wants, and with the variety of styles and colors available, you can uncover a combination to achieve whatever your heart desires.

Positives:

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

  • Regardless of the window grilles you select, 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 provide more energy efficient selections than historical grilles used with single-pane glass.

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

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

Negatives:

  • While there are a variety of designs available, some homeowners feel that certain grille styles might 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 is cleaned, cleaning can be more of a challenge.

  • Replacement windows that feature grilles are sometimes more expensive than those without 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 accent to your next set of windows.
