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 fulfill whatever your heart desires.

Positives:

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

  • Regardless of the window grilles you go with, there are a few 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 selections 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 seen a handful of positives of window grilles, let’s read about the challenges that may come with window grilles.

Negatives:

  • While there are a variety of designs out there,  some homeowners feel that a few grille styles might 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 of a headache.

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