The Positives and Negatives of Window Grilles

The Positives and Negatives of Window Grilles

Window grilles are an often underappreciated part of your home’s windows. They offer you the flexibility to meet both contemporary and traditional design wishes, and with the variety of styles and colors offered, you can find 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 few color choices to meet your design needs.

  • Grille options are available today with dual or triple pane insulated glass to provide more energy efficient choices 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 seen 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 host of designs out there,  some homeowners feel that some grille styles can 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 typically cleaned, cleaning can be more difficult.

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

Whether you’re moving and need to buy replacement windows or you’re simply looking for your current home, window grilles can be a great accent to your next set of windows.
