Window Grills

The Positives and Negatives of Window Grilles

Published on

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 number of styles and colors available, you can uncover a combination to satisfy whatever your heart desires.


  • 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 give you 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 few positives of window grilles, let’s take a look at the challenges that may come with window grilles.


  • While there are a host of designs available,  some homeowners feel that certain grille styles can 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 of a challenge.

  • Replacement windows that showcase grilles are sometimes more pricey than those that don’t have grilles.

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