Choosing the right type of window is often not easy, especially with the abundant options available. But with a Worthington Window®, you can be sure of both its beauty as well as its function. It’s only a matter of choosing which kind of style works best for your replacement windows, and we offer a wide range of grille options that can go with any kind of home architecture. Here are some window grilles you can choose based on these common home designs.

Cottage or Farmhouse Style

The American cottage house style is typically a two-story home with lower living space and second-floor bedrooms. These homes are often considered to have playful, whimsical exterior features, such as elaborate trim and window boxes. If you have this type of home architecture, we recommend having your windows outfitted with traditional, colonial grilles since they go well with the overall aesthetic.

Victorian Style

Victorian architecture was partly inspired by Gothic style as it appealed to the romantic Victorian idea that fashion, style and furnishings should be beautiful rather than practical. Today, modern Victorian homes are usually large with outer walls made of stone. They’re also characterized by bright colors and embellished, decorative trims. As such, we recommend Worthington windows with diamond grille patterns, which are common in Victorian home design. Colonial-style grille patterns with six to eight glass panels are also common, especially at the top of double hung windows.

Colonial Style

This is actually one of the most popular home styles in the United States. They’re characterized by symmetrical lines and feature an entry door that can be found in the middle of the home. It’s not hard to choose which grill pattern goes best with a colonial home; most recommend choosing the traditional colonial grille pattern, which is exactly named after this house style so your colonial home’s architectural style won’t be affected.
