The Positives and Negatives of Window Grilles

The Positives and Negatives of Window Grilles

Window grilles are an often underappreciated piece of your home’s windows. They offer you the flexibility to meet both contemporary and traditional design wants, and with the host of styles and colors available, you can find a combination to achieve whatever your heart desires.

Positives:

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

  • Regardless of the window grilles you select, there are a handful of 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 removable grilles are available to allow for easier cleaning of the glass.

Now that we’ve read a handful of positives of window grilles, let’s read about the challenges associated with window grilles.

Negatives:

  • While there are a host of designs available, some homeowners feel that certain 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 typically cleaned, cleaning can be more of a headache.

  • Replacement windows that feature grilles are sometimes more costly than those without grilles.

Whether you’re moving and need to purchase replacement windows or you’re simply shopping around for your current home, window grilles could be a great add-on to your next set of windows.
