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 give you the flexibility to meet both contemporary and traditional design needs, and with the number of styles and colors available, you can discover a combination to satisfy whatever your heart desires.

Positives:

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

  • Regardless of the window grilles you choose, there are a few color choices to meet your design expectations.

  • Grille options are available today with dual or triple pane insulated glass to offer more energy efficient options than historical grilles used with single-pane glass.

  • Between-the-glass grilles and removeable grilles are available to make for a quick cleaning of the glass.

Now that we’ve read a couple positives of window grilles, let’s check out the challenges associated with window grilles.

Negatives:

  • While there are a host of designs available,  some homeowners feel that certain grille styles may 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 showcase grilles are typically more costly than those that don’t feature grilles.

Whether you’re moving and need to buy replacement windows or you’re simply shopping around for your current home, window grilles may be a great addition to your next set of windows.
