Window style isn’t just about glass and trim; it’s about coordinating that overall window style with your house’s architecture through the use of grille patterns. One of the most important things about choosing new windows is your home’s décor and architectural style. This extends all the way to the grille patterns you use to define the look of your home, fit in with the neighborhood, and even create a historical feel.
Here are some ideas when it comes to choosing the right grille pattern for you.
Usually seen in double-hung windows, the grille pattern is comprised of six individual panes of glass on both the top and bottom panels. Thanks to simple, classic lines, it’s easy to underscore the traditional look of Colonial and Cape Cod style homes.
Typically used with casement windows, this grid lines every side, with small square panes or light in each corner. The corner panes connect to each other by a longer light on the top and bottom, leaving a center plain for easier viewing.
The Modified Prairie is another consideration, which will reduce the number of square panes or light in each corner for a simpler look with fewer lines and thus a larger glass area.
Featuring clean and sleek lines, this farmhouse-style grid pattern has two panes of glass that are separated by a muntin on the top and bottom sash. You’ll usually find this in double-hung windows, resulting in a four-pane glass window when it’s closed.
If you want the look of a traditional window, but you also need the efficiency, convenience, and easy operation of a casement, try a simulated double-hung grille which meets both aesthetic and operational needs.
If you don’t necessarily like what you see online or in the stores, go for your own unique pattern. Revive an iconic pattern or go for something ultra-modern. Whatever the case, you can work with your window designer to come up with a totally different grille that takes your needs, preferences and budget into consider. Explore your individual style with custom grilles that can feature anything from arches to intricate patterns.
