New windows in your home add a level of comfort and viewing pleasure. Besides helping you save energy by installing energy-efficient windows, these upgrades will also improve your home’s safety and create an instant home makeover. There are many different types of windows for your viewing pleasure, including different settings for the windows and different types of window designs.
Different Window Structures
- Casement Windows — Suppose you opt for casement windows, which are the earliest form of movable window. In that case, they can be framed with wood or metal and have hinges or pivots along with the horizontally hung sash, allowing for outward or inward movement along their entire length.
- Awning Windows — There is only one sash in an awning window, but it is hinged on the top rather than the side. Hand cranks open and close windows horizontally on a metal track. This window style is easy to operate, so it’s great for hard-to-reach places such as over countertops and sinks, as well as in bathrooms.
- Bow & Bay Windows — In a bow window, the same type of window is used in all sections, and the bottom is rounded. In bay windows, you’ll see that the sections are hard-angled.
- Slider Windows — With a sliding window you can choose how much to leave open, giving you control over how much air gets into your home. Spaces with restricted access, such as above a kitchen sink, are ideal for them. Sash sliders offer easy horizontal movement across two or three panes.
- Picture Windows for Exquisite Views — A picture window has one or more large panes and is usually made without glazing bars. Picture windows get their name because they enable you to see outside the window without any obstructions as if it were a picture frame, allowing you to see a clear view of what is outside. Picture windows also provide a great deal of natural light in a room, so they are ideal for rooms with an unobstructed view.
