Every home has a different style, from traditional to contemporary. This often determines the look of every component of its windows, including the grilles. In this post, windows and doors pro Renewal by Andersen® of New Jersey shares a look at prominent home styles and window grille patterns that work with them.
Victorian and Neo-Victorian
For Victorian-style homes, a diamond-patterned grid at the top of the window sash isn’t an uncommon sight as it can emphasize the elaborate decoration of both the home’s interior and exterior. Neo-victorian homes, on the other hand, can take on the grid patterns often seen on the windows of Colonial-style homes.
The cottage style home is often built with simplicity in mind and as such, a simple grid pattern for your windows should suit your home. According to French doors and window experts, the grid patterns that suit this home style can be achieved by adding a muntin at the top and bottom of their window sashes.
When it comes to modern or contemporary homes, on the other hand, it’s not uncommon to see plain glass panels on windows, highlighting a property’s sleek and clean look. However, homeowners who want to add interest to their window can add a simple grid pattern by installing a plain, horizontal valance along the top of the window and a horizontal line running along the bottom of the glass.
Like the Victorian home style, diamond-patterned grids are the most suitable grid pattern for windows of the Tudor style homes. This is because adding such a pattern to your window helps the home emphasize its Old World, European look. Apart from that, homeowners can also choose between covering the entire window panel or just a portion of it, such as the top half of double-hung windows.
