Window Grills

The Positives and Negatives of Window Grilles

Published on

Window grilles are an often underappreciated part 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 offered, you can uncover a combination to achieve whatever your heart desires.

Positives:

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

  • Regardless of the window grilles you go with, 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 selections 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 couple positives of window grilles, let’s check out the challenges surrounding window grilles.

Negatives:

  • While there are a host of designs out there,  some homeowners feel that some grille styles may block 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.
