Ornamental window grilles are gaining popularity in Dallas homes. Providing a touch of class and decoration to your home, window grilles also provide extra security for your home. Window grilles have been around for centuries – serving both as decoration and as a security system. Popular in many countries for centuries, window grilles are now a trending item in home construction in the US, and in Dallas in particular. Consider adding window grilles in your home remodeling project.

Grilles can be made from wood, or – in most cases – iron, and come in a wide variety of styles – from utilitarian to elaborate, to modern. They can add a unique, personal touch and enhance the outside of your home. No matter what style your home is, there are grilles that will fit every type of architecture from classic to contemporary. Wooden grilles are usually made from pine, Douglas fir, maple, cherry, mahogany, alder and red oak. You can even create your own design for your window grilles. Wood, aluminum and wrought iron grilles can be painted or tinted in any color to either match your color palette or provide a complementary contrasting addition to your home.

If you do not want to completely redo the front of your home, adding window grilles will give your house an automatic facelift. Grilles added to the windows and doors can completely change the exterior of your home with little and minimal cost. Imagine how your home will look with decorative grilles added to the windows – you can accentuate the architecture of your home to create an even more appealing first impression of your abode.
