4 Different Types of Windows

By Homefix Corporation

Casement Windows

Casement windows are panes that open by swinging out. The hinges are located on the side of the window, and they are opened and closed using a lever on the inside of the window.

Awning Windows

Awning windows are similar to casements, but the hinges are placed at the top, rather than the side. While casement windows swing out like a door, awning windows lift up.

Bay Windows

Bay windows are a type of window that protrudes from the wall. They can be used to create floor space in the room, a seat, or a shelf.

Bow Window

A variation on the typical bay window, is the bow window, which has a curvier shape.
