There are many windows styles available in the market today, making it quite challenging to choose the best option for your rooms.
While selecting windows largely depends on personal preference and taste, you need to consider other factors such as the desired purpose of a specific window in a certain room and the actual size of a room.
Here’re more details about different styles of windows.
These windows come with two frames that are separate from each other. They are typically closed or opened by sliding either window frame upwards.
Single-hung style of windows are the most commonly used types of windows. They’re suitable for application in any room.
Just like the single-hung type of windows, double-hung windows can be installed in any room. They’re typically hung from the bottom or top.
They can be opened by sliding either frame upwards or downwards. Double-hung windows are popular for they allow for maximum air circulation in a room.
An awning window is usually hinged from the top. It opens outwards using a crank or lever. Awning windows are suitable for basements, bathrooms, and other such small spaces.
These windows are popular for keeping bad weather and rain out whilst allowing for maximum air circulation.
A casement window is usually hinged at one side. It opens outwards using a crank. The crank allows for everyone, including people with mobility or physical disability challenges, to open or close casement windows easily.
Casement windows are suitable for use in any room. They’re popular for being energy-efficient.
A stationary window is also referred to as a picture window. Stationary windows neither open nor close. These windows come in different sizes.
They can be customized to fit any space. Stationary windows are commonly used in vaulted spaces or over the top section of doors to allow light inside the space.
These windows are designed like the single-hung type, but are usually flipped sideways. Slider windows are opened by sliding them leftwards or rightwards.
They can be designed in different configurations such as triple-hung, double-hung, or single-hung slider windows. They’re a great choice for rooms where more lighting is needed or where you want a larger view of the outdoors.
