Window Grills

The Positives and Negatives of Window Grilles

Published on

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

Positives:

  • Removable between-the-glass grilles easily snap in and out so you are able to 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 expectations.

  • Grille options are available today with dual or triple pane insulated glass to offer more energy efficient choices 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 seen a handful of positives of window grilles, let’s read about the challenges associated with window grilles.

Negatives:

  • While there are a number of designs out there,  some homeowners feel that some 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 difficult.

  • Replacement windows that showcase grilles are typically more expensive than those that don’t have grilles.
