Window Grills

The Positives and Negatives of Window Grilles

Published on

Window grilles are an often underappreciated portion of your home’s windows. They give you the flexibility to meet both contemporary and traditional design wishes, and with the number 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 have the ability to swap styles whenever you update your home or change styles or paint.

  • Regardless of the window grilles you go with, there are multiple 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 allow for easier cleaning of the glass.

Now that we’ve read a couple positives of window grilles, let’s check out the challenges that may come with window grilles.

Negatives:

  • While there are a number of designs available,  some homeowners feel that some grille styles may 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 needs to be cleaned, cleaning can be more of a headache.

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