Window grilles may be small, but the right grille style can add authenticity and flourish, as well as help your windows blend in with the rest of the house. Window installation company Renewal by Andersen® of Denver shares the best grille patterns for every home style.
The Colonial grille is perhaps the most familiar window grille style. A typical Colonial grille divides a sash two panes tall by three panes wide, but this can vary depending on the window size. This grille style is typically seen in Cape Cod and Colonial-style homes. Whereas traditional Colonial-style windows are made of individual panes set into the grilles, modern ones are made of a single large glass pane. The grilles are attached on or between the glass panes.
Derived from prairie-style homes, prairie grilles are typically seen on casement windows. This style divides the sash into nine panes, with the outer eight panes framing the oversized center pane. Renewal by Andersen offers on or between-panel grilles for all window replacement units. Double-hung windows can be equipped with modified prairie grilles. Each sash is divided into six lights. When closed, it creates the look of prairie grilles spread across two sashes.
Farmhouse grilles are typically seen on home styles of the same name, but also works for home styles that need clean and sleek lines. One sash is divided by a horizontal muntin that leaves the bottom half clear. The upper half is then divided into two or three lights vertically. On double-hung windows, the entire top sash may be divided by vertical muntins while the bottom half is kept clear.
This grille style is ideal for casement and sliding windows. It features a horizontal grille that divides the window sash into two, simulating a double-hung window. Additional grilles can be added to create a more traditional look.
