Should You Get Grilles for Your Windows?

Customization is half the fun of window replacement, offering you an opportunity to design one-of-a-kind windows for your home. During this phase of the project, you’ll need to decide on your choice of window style, frame color and hardware finish. You’ll also be asked whether you want to add grilles to your new windows. Should you? One of the most trusted window installation contractors in the area, Window World of Boston, explains more.

Grilles for Your Windows

A Quick Overview of Window Grilles

Grilles refer to the strip of material dividing the glass in windows. While they’re now used for aesthetics, window grilles actually had a practical purpose. Centuries ago, manufacturing and shipping large panes of glass without breakage was incredibly difficult. To mitigate this, glass was instead delivered in smaller sections, which were then assembled into full-size windows by connecting the sections together with grilles. 

Using advanced techniques, window manufacturers can now craft replacement windows in any size and shape, with the grilles being placed between the panes as a decorative element. Whether you choose to add grilles to your windows will depend on a few important factors, including:

  • Your home’s architectural style. If you have a traditional home, having grilles in your windows can help enhance its appearance. But if your home has a sleeker, more contemporary style, you should consider leaving your windows grille-free.
  • Choice of windows. Some window styles, such as casement, double-hung, bay and bow, are often designed with grilles. Picture and sliding windows, not so much.
  • Viewing area. If your home has a stunning view, you’ll be able to enjoy it or better maximize it with windows that don’t have grilles. But if your windows face the side of your neighbor’s home, they might be better off with grilles.
