Matching Your Window Grid Pattern to Your Home’s Architectural Style

Your windows are important interior and exterior design elements. The grille pattern you choose for your specialty windows can have a big impact on the look of your home. In today’s article, We’ll explain everything you need to know about choosing a grille pattern that suits your home’s architectural style.

Cottage Farmhouse

Cottage farmhouse homes are built with simplicity in mind and their windows reflect this. Windows in a cottage farmhouse typically have two panes of glass that are separated by a muntin on both the bottom and the top of the window sashes. Cottage farmhouse homes often feature double-hung windows.

Modern and Contemporary

Modern and contemporary homes often feature casement or awning windows that don’t have any muntins, giving them a sleek, clean appearance. Some homeowners want to dress up the windows a bit to add visual interest, which can be achieved with a simple grid pattern, such as a plain horizontal valance along the bottom of the glass and along the top of the window.

Cape Cod and Colonial

Cape Cod and Colonial homes have double-hung windows with six individual panes of glass that are separated by muntins in both the bottom and top panels of the windows. Some Colonial or Cape Cod homes might also have large picture windows with many small panes on the front. Installation of windows with different grille patterns is also possible when you work with a contractor like Renewal by Andersen of Spokane that offers a wide range of products and customization options.
