What Are The Best Window Types For My House?

 In blog, Uncategorized

The shape and style of your windows can have a huge effect on the overall aura of a house. If you looking to replace your windows, our guide on the main types available may be useful to use.

Bay Windows

Bay windows stretch outwards to provide extra interior space. These are essentially a combination of one stationary window, flanked by two double-hung windows. They are sometimes referred to as bow windows. They often appear in a main living room.

Picture Window

These large windows let in huge of light, similar to bay windows, although they don’t protrude in the same way. Again, these tend to appear in the main living room of a house.

Double-Hung Windows

These have two sashes that slide vertically. These sashes tend to tilt for easy window cleaning and can be opened wide from the top or the bottom. These are common in most large rooms of a house.

Casement Windows

Casement windows, which open and close via the turn of a crank, are much rarer than in the past.

Awning Windows

These windows are hinged at the top and open outwards. They can be placed on top of solitary windows in living rooms and kitchens. They’re often found on their own in small bathrooms too.

Slider Windows

You slide these full-size windows open as they glide along a track. These are often found within in conservatories, although they are increasingly being found within the main body of modern houses.

Transom Window

These are the most narrow type of window, typically mounted next to other windows or doors to let more light or air into a room.

Stationary Windows

These windows do not open, but have huge options for customization. They come in all shapes and sizes and are commonly found in pretty much every room of the house.
