The Positives and Negatives of Window Grilles

The Positives and Negatives of Window Grilles

Window grilles are an often underappreciated portion of your home’s windows. They offer you the flexibility to meet both contemporary and traditional design wishes, and with the host of styles and colors available, you can uncover a combination to fulfill 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 choose, there are multiple color choices to meet your design expectations.

  • Grille options are available today with dual or triple pane insulated glass to give you 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 few positives of window grilles, let’s take a look at the challenges associated with window grilles.

Negatives:

  • While there are a variety of designs available,  some homeowners feel that a few grille styles can 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 difficult.

  • Replacement windows that tout grilles are typically more expensive than those that don’t feature grilles.

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