The Positives and Negatives of Window Grilles

Window grilles are an often underappreciated piece of your home’s windows. They provide you the flexibility to meet both contemporary and traditional design needs, and with the host 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 can change styles whenever you update your home or change styles or paint.

  • Regardless of the window grilles you go with, there are a handful of color choices to meet your design expectations.

  • Grille options are available today with dual or triple pane insulated glass to offer more energy efficient selections 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 surrounding window grilles.

Negatives:

  • While there are a number of designs out there,  some homeowners feel that certain grille styles may 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 needs to be cleaned, cleaning can be more difficult.

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