Window and door grilles are such ubiquitous features in a Filipino home. A grille’s main purpose is to keep trespassers and robbers out, but it is an architectural detail as well.

Wrought iron grilles can serve as decorative elements to both your home’s interior and exterior. If you feel “caged in” by your grilles, perhaps you need a style update—your grilles should reflect the overall style of your home, in terms of theme, color, and form. Here are six lovely design ideas for you:


Simple, horizontal grilles complement the Modern-Asian interiors of Grace Moslares. Vertical mullions are spaced far apart to make the windows look wide and airy.
