Match the Style of Your Home

Be selective when it comes to choosing a grille pattern for the windows and doors in your home. In a craftsman-style home like this, homeowners use grilles to create vertical proportions. Panes in colonial homes are divided differently than those in Victorian homes. Custom options exist too, so be sure to work with a manufacturer if you have any doubt about what grilles best match the style of your home.
