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 wishes, and with the variety of styles and colors available, you can discover 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 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 removable grilles are available to make for a quick cleaning of the glass.

Now that we’ve seen a couple positives of window grilles, let’s check out the challenges surrounding window grilles.

Negatives:

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

  • Replacement windows that feature grilles are typically more pricey than those that don’t have grilles.
