Elegant and Functional: Wall Grilles Decor for Your Home

Wrought iron scrollwork grills are reminiscent of virgins wearing lace mantillas and looking down from balconies while troubadours play romantic tunes on early versions of the guitar.  In countries where ventilation is extremely important, such grills provided a level of security to keep people from falling out of windows and to keep other people out.  In fact, they can still protect glass windows or doors from the occasional vandalism.

Coarse or fine

Metal wall grills can have open scrolls, elaborately machined dense patterns, or even patterns that are so dense that it is difficult to see through.  The grilling job that works best for you depends on how you plan to use your grill.  Open scrollwork is best for simple decoration and can be easily placed over the glass.  Elaborately crafted patterns that frame fine-meshed frames can be used as part of a fire barrier or to let light and air into a room while keeping insects at bay.  Grilles are often used to cover the vent of an underfloor oven.  Each purpose helps determine the pattern and density.

Spanish, Arabic, Turkish, French and more

Fine rolling grilles can be found as part of the architecture for different nationalities.  The word “grill” comes from the French Grielle, but the Spanish word for the same architectural feature is reja.  Barbecue work has been made almost anywhere metalwork has been developed and can be made from brass, bronze, aluminum, or iron.  They can be simple, useful pieces designed to cover air vents, stove or air conditioning vents, or elaborate designs used in balconies, window coverings, and transoms.  Decorative grilles can also be used to reinforce glass and as shutters on windows on the lower floor to prevent entry.  In countries where the weather is often too warm to close a house tightly, grilles offered a preconditioning solution for security and ventilation.

BBQ work for you

You probably have BBQ chores around your house and haven’t even thought about it.  If you have oven vent, reinforced glass, or similar items, you already have some sort of griddle installed.  Barbecue grills can be used to divide a room, provide airflow through a difficult area, or decorate a blank wall.  It’s both beautiful and practical, adding grace to security shutters or even fencing.  Sometimes it can just be an accent that pops other architectural features with the added interest.
