Bay or Bow Windows
Bay and bow windows are typically a conglomeration of 3 or more windows that project out from your home. They accentuate the view by dividing it into 3 window panes. They also bring in more light and make the room appear larger. The panes that comprise a bay or bow windows can even be constructed from other window types, such as casement or single hung windows.
Casement windows are hinged on one end and can be swung outward to provide ventilation. Casement windows are very energy-efficient compared to sliding windows, because they seal tightly when closed. They can open left to right or vertically, depending on the opening.
Double Hung Windows
Double hung windows are named as such because both the lower and upper panes can open for ventilation. They are one of the most common window types and many tilt inward, making it easy for homeowners to clean the exterior window.
Picture windows are large windows that offer a wide, picture-like view onto the world. A picture window may offer a single pane of glass, or it may be broken down into several panes. They are fixed and are designed to let in plenty of light.
Awning windows tilt out from the bottom. When open, the window itself forms an awning, protecting the opening from rain.
