We recommend starting with the most popular styles if you’re considering trying out new window styles for your upcoming window and door replacement project. Here are some of the time-tested ones:
Casement Windows – Casement windows are hinged windows that open outward. Traditionally, these windows need to be pushed open, but today’s casement windows feature a hand crank that allows easy opening. The sash presses onto the frame when closed, making it the most energy-efficient operable window style. In addition to these features, many homeowners choose casement windows because they allow maximum ventilation, and they look great in any architectural style.
Double-Hung Windows – Arguably the most popular window style, you’d have a hard time finding a home that doesn’t have a double-hung window nor would anyone need instructions on how to open and close one. Even if a room can only accommodate one double-hung windows, you can open it in such a way that it vents stale air in one opening and cycles in fresh air on another. Most double-hung windows have sashes that lean inward for easy cleaning.
Sliding Windows – Sliding windows are often associated with modern architecture, thanks to their clean lines. Homeowners choose sliding windows for their window replacement project because of their space-saving benefits. While the tracks require extra care as they can easily trap dirt and dust, most sliding windows have removable sashes that allow easy access to the tracks when cleaning.
Bay and Bow Windows – Bay windows and their rounded counterpart bow windows are protruding windows. Both window styles are traditionally regarded as one of the best window styles, thanks to their many benefits. Aesthetically, bay and bow windows make the exterior look bigger. The protrusion made by these windows can be built into window seats with the seat bottom functioning as hidden storage, drawers or shelves. While traditional bay windows are trapezoidal, box bay windows can also fit modern architectural styles.
