5 Most Common Types of Windows
The windows in your home play a large role in its overall appearance. If you’re considering remodeling your home and have older windows, consider looking at those first.
You could add large sunroom windows where appropriate or even small windows to let in more natural light. No matter your style, there’s a window to fit your needs. Here are the five most common types of windows to choose from.
Double-hung windows are one of the most popular choices for homeowners replacing windows in their house. They look nearly identical to the basic single-hung window, but the difference is that both sashes can open. One side can be hinged or slide to allow for better ventilation in the home. Double-hung windows are a great choice, regardless of your aesthetic desires.
Casement windows are popular in kitchens or bathrooms where more ventilation is often required. The entire window swings open by rotating a crank to improve airflow. These windows are typically installed higher than normal, so they can be slightly difficult to clean. However, the functionality makes them convenient for day-to-day use.
Picture windows are common if you want large sunroom windows or even smaller sizes just to get a view of the outdoors. These types of windows typically don’t open, so they won’t provide any ventilation. They’re sealed tightly for optimal energy efficiency and are designed to highlight an outdoor feature or let as much natural light in as possible.
Horizontal Sliding Windows
When replacing windows in your house, strongly consider horizontal sliding windows. They’re wider than traditional windows and versatile enough to be used in almost any room in your home. So if you can’t envision the perfect window in a particular room, consider a horizontal sliding window.
Awning windows are similar to casement windows in appearance and functionality. They offer great ventilation by opening vertically and are great options for bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchens, or other small rooms. Awning windows are often added if a little extra natural light is desired in a room or to improve ventilation.
