Choosing Grille Designs for Your Home Style

Choosing grilles can seem challenging, but it’s actually pretty simple and straightforward. Here are a few tips from our window experts at Renewal by Andersen® of Atlanta.

Colonial Styles

The grille pattern that works best for the classic colonial home is a six-square grid pattern formed by two vertical muntins and a straight horizontal one. Depending on the size of your replacement windows, you can increase the pattern into a 3×3 grid, although the 2×6 is typically the most common layout. Sashes and trims are usually colored white to contrast against dark-colored siding characteristic of colonial architecture, although you may still choose from a wider palette of colors.

Prairie Homes

The prairie-style home used to be the banner choice in bucolic locales but can now be found in Anytown, USA. Casement windows are a staple in prairie homes which is then framed by one or two muntins that leave a large area of unobstructed glass in the middle of the windows, forming four thin rectangular areas along the sides, and four small squares in the corners.

Customized Grilles

Sticking to your home’s traditional architecture has many advantages, but so does making a pattern of your own. Contact your windows contractor about custom-designed grilles that can help elevate your typical window replacement job into a well-deserved facelift for your home.
