There are many different types of grilles available to replace the “ugly,” “boring,” looking grilles in your home.
Available grille styles range from sleek-High Tech looking Aluminum grilles for a modern look, to the Cast Iron Ornate style that fits traditional Classic Architecture.
The “Bar-Type Linear” grille fits a modern homes’ architecture. Made from solid Aluminum, with a Bare Aluminum finish, this sleek grille has ¼” horizontal bars with ¼” spacing between. It is available with a standard ¾” border, but it is also available in a “border-less” type which recesses into the wall for an even more dramatic modern look.
The “Ornate Architecture Grille” enhances traditional classic architecture. When a grille must be visible, this type of grille is used in the same fashion as upgrading the hardware on your doors and cabinets. The grille can now become an architectural element of the home, instead of just an air delivery device you have to live with.
Stock and Custom sizes are available to fit any application or existing grille sizes. Custom colors are also available from some of the grille manufactures (many homeowner have their grilles “painted in” to match the surrounding walls and ceilings by the own painter).
Wood grilles are also available for “floor” applications. They are available in many types of wood, with several finishes. These grilles are also available in bare unfinished wood for custom finishing by your hardwood flooring contractor. These grilles can also be “in-laid” into the floor, to reduce visibility, and make them almost disappear from view.
