03 Dec Window Shapes and Styles
There are many different styles of windows available for every home. Depending on the location, size and style of your home, some window types work better than others. Read on to learn more about the most popular types of windows.
Single Sliding Windows
Single sliding windows are windows that have two panels, one that moves and one that does not. They can open from left to right or right to left. Single sliding windows are perfect for windows near plants or patios because they can still open.
Single Hung Windows
Single hung windows have two panels, one on top of the other. The top panel, or sash, does not move, while the bottom panel slides up and down to open. Like single sliding windows, they are ideal for windows near plants or patios.
Picture windows are windows that do not open or move. These kinds of windows are perfect for maximizing views and the amount of light that comes into your home. Picture windows can come in a variety of shapes and sizes.
Casement windows are windows that open outward. They are hinged on one side and opened using a crank on the window. Like picture windows, they maximize the sunlight that comes into the window but also allows air circulation.
