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 offer you the flexibility to meet both contemporary and traditional design wants, and with the host of styles and colors available, you can uncover a combination to satisfy 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 go with, there are multiple color choices to meet your design needs.

  • 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 it easier to clean 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 number of designs available,  some homeowners feel that a few grille styles might inhibit their view of the yard.

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