When you think of a “grille,” many things may come to mind. Perhaps you’re dreaming about cooking BBQ on the patio, or you’re cringing because you’d love to install a grille in your home, but the price is simply too high. But did you know that Made in the Shade Blinds offers faux iron grilles that not only look great, but can fit within your budget, too?

Many people love the historic charm of a decorative grille. These unique features can be installed in various places in and outside of the home. Our Tableaux faux decorative grilles provide the look and feel of iron, but are actually made of 100% post-industrial recycled wood fiber and formaldehyde-free resin.

Benefits of installing a faux iron grille

  1. Increase curb appeal – These unique features add a lovely vintage feel to your home and can even increase the value of your home, if you decide to sell.
  2. Dress up a tight space – Because our decorative grilles can be built in custom sizes, they can fit virtually anywhere inside your home, whether it’s a skylight, cabinet, window or outdoor area.
  3. Easy maintenance – These features need very little support, as they will not rust or fade like traditional iron. Plus, they’re moisture, termite and fire resistant. 
  4. Chic yet affordable – No one will know you didn’t break the bank putting in these exquisite design elements! It’s all the elegance without the hefty price tag.
  5. Easy installation – Installation for faux iron grilles is quick and easy, so you can enjoy the new look of your home in as little time as possible.
  6. Environmentally friendly – We use recycled materials, allowing for a totally “green” product.
