Beaux-Artes Second Annual Ugliest Grille Contest and Grille Inspirations
This year a minimum of 5 and maximum of 10 winners will receive one of Beaux-Artes decorative grilles to replace their ugly grille. All you have to do is submit a photo of your ugly grille. If selected, we will send you a free replacement decorative grille in your choice of style and finish , and we receive an ‘After’ picture of your installed decorative grille. The winners’ Before and After pictures will be shown in our Decorative Grille Product Slideshow.
Here is last year’s winner.
The seams around the grille are terrible. It has years of grime, some of the louvers are bent and you can see the unpainted galvanized steel duct work behind. The owner chose our Arts and Crafts 12″x20″ grille in our Antique Gold finish.
The Before pictures will be judged by Beaux-Artes management. We are looking for some great Before and After photos of our products installed for our online store. The combination of Before and After pictures demonstrate the impact of replacing functional louvered grilles with our decorative grilles.

Not sure about this one. I think you can see too much of the radiator. A different pattern and spray the radiator black.
This is a a no relief laser cut pattern. Personally I prefer 3D designs but it is still lovely.
Decorative grilles provide design solutions.
This could qualify as an ugly grille since everything else in the room is lovely.
I have shown this grille before but I include it as a great idea for unusable high areas.
They need decorative grilles.
