When replacing the windows in your home, there are plenty of choices to be made. Beyond the trim and frame colors or the styles of windows you are choosing for the various areas of your home, there are also accessories and advanced stylings to consider. One popular accessory you may wish to include with your new windows is a decorative grid.
Decorative grids are a must if you want a stylish home. These inject an extra element of sophistication and dimension to an otherwise normal (and daresay boring) window. Contrary to popular perception, grids can be cleaned with minimal effort. Multiple styles are sold by manufacturers.
What are decorative grids anyway?
Grids are decorative bars sandwiched between window panes. This gives the window a unique look. Different windows can be provided with the same look to match a common aesthetic. A stylish grill will make your house (and the window) stand out from other houses in the street.
Grills are sold in a bouquet of designs. You simply have to select the design you want. To choose, you must take into factor the layout of the window and the style of the grill. You must also take into consideration how the grills would appear when contrasted with the other windows of your house.
What about maintenance?
Grills do not require much maintenance. They do not pose a barrier to maintaining the glass either. This is due to the grills being located within the window panes. You can clean and maintain the glass sans any hassle. The effectiveness of the low emissivity coatings is not hampered.
Which grill layout?
You are spoilt of choice when it comes to grill layouts. Common options include Colonial, Prairie, and Ladder. Another popular option is the Double Ladder grill. Select a colonial grill if you want to make tall and narrow windows appear wider. Go for a prairie grill if you want to give your house’s big windows a beautiful frame effect. The beauty is amplified if the color of the grill is of a different color than the vinyl. Both classic and contoured grids are available in Colonial, Prairie, Double Prairie, and Diamond patterns.
