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 number of styles and colors offered, you can discover 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 select, there are a few color choices to meet your design requirements.

  • Grille options are available today with dual or triple pane insulated glass to offer 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 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 out there,  some homeowners feel that certain grille styles may block 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 challenge.

  • Replacement windows that showcase grilles are usually more expensive than those without grilles.

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