Are Grilles Worth Adding to Your Window Design?

When tackling a window replacement project, you have to cover all the essential bases. Your choice of framing material and glass immediately come to mind as well as the overall aesthetics of your window. The decision to add grilles falls on the latter. But are they actually necessary? 

Dependent on Several Factors

Choosing to add grilles to your new windows will depend on the architectural style of your home. If you live in a Colonial or Farmhouse-style abode, window grilles are necessary to bring out its classic appearance both inside and outside. However, if you live in a more modern or contemporary home, your windows can do without grilles. After all, such an architectural style involves geometric and linear elements, which can be achieved if your windows have sleeker frames and uninterrupted outdoor views.

Speaking of outdoor views, the decision to add grilles to your new windows also depends on the surrounding landscape in which your home is situated. If you are fortunate enough to have a stunning vista of the cityscape or countryside, you can keep your windows bare so you can frame it perfectly. This is especially true if one side of your home is facing a spectacular sunset. However, if you live in a suburb where everything around you are your neighbors’ houses, adding window grilles makes sense to soften the dullness of the view.
