When it comes to window style and design, there are more things to consider than just the glass and the trim. The windows also should be aesthetically pleasing and reflect your home’s architectural style. Choosing the right grille pattern is a vital part of making sure this happens.
Grille Patterns to Consider
In this blog, we explore four of the top grille patterns you may want to consider for your replacement windows and describe their features to help you find the grille pattern that works best with your home’s style.
The clean, sleek lines of farmhouse-style grilles enable them to mesh seamlessly with the windows in a farmhouse-style home. They feature two panes of glass separated by a muntin on both the top and bottom sashes of double-hung windows. As a result, when the window is closed, you have a four-pane window. Some homeowners prefer the two-over-one look, with a single grille on the top sash and nothing on the bottom.
If you’ve ever seen a Colonial home, you know the style is all about symmetry — rectangular shape, same number of windows on both sides of the entrance and on the first and second stories. Usually, the grids on Colonial windows are the same on both sashes. These grilles generally feature either six-over-six or nine-over-nine grid patterns. This style works well with Cape Cod and Colonial-style homes.
This is a popular design that’s typically paired with casement windows. In this grid pattern, muntins run along the edge of the windows, with small square panes in each corner. This creates a distinctive grille style that leaves a large area of glass in the center of the window clear and unobstructed.
Perhaps you have an idea for an interesting grille pattern, or maybe you want a particular pattern to create authenticity in a historic home. Whatever the case, you can customize grilles to express your style and enhance your home’s appearance.
