Replacement Windows: Grids or No Grids?

Window Grids

When purchasing replacement windows for your home you’ll have several important decisions to make, such as the style of the windows and the color of the frames. You’ll also have the option of adding decorative grids that are made from the same material as the window frame. Whether or not you choose grids for your windows will likely depend on several factors, including your home’s architectural design and the style of windows you select.

What Is the Purpose of Window Grids?

Window grids date back to the 1600s, when smaller panes of glass were the norm due to breakage issues with larger panes. Grids were used to connect the small panes and form a larger, more durable window. These days, shipping advancements have made larger panes of glass easier to manage, and today’s window grids are added for aesthetic purposes to give a traditional look to a larger pane of glass. Today you can choose from grids outside of the glass called SDL grids (simulated divided lite) to create a more historic, classic look or with multi-pane glass becoming commonplace, grids are often installed between the panes to allow for easier upkeep.

Grids or No Grids on Windows: The Choice is Yours

If your home is more traditional, grids will provide the conventional look you’re hoping for. However, if you’re going for a more modern aesthetic, grid-less windows are a more fitting option. Or you could decide based on the style of the window. If you have a large picture window in your living room, leaving off the grids will allow more sunlight in and provide an unobstructed of the outside.
