Selecting the Right Window Design For Your Home

House windows allow sunlight in and eliminate feelings of claustrophobia. You can leave them open to enjoy a nice breeze and easily close them to avoid wet or cold weather. Choosing windows for your home is an important decision to not only provide sunlight and shield from lousy weather, but to ensure your windows match the overall design of your home.

Selecting the right window design for your home can seem time-consuming with all the designs to choose from. Also, your home's style and your personal taste are factors in the decision. Popular window designs include fixed, double-hung, casement, awning, sliding and Palladian.

Fixed windows are more suitable for higher windows with the sole intention of providing sunlight as they cannot be opened. These are the most energy-efficient and least expensive design option, and they can be customized to fit any shape or size.

Double hung windows consist of two sashes that move up and down by a push or a pull, and only half of the window can be open at one time. These common windows are energy-efficient and most include the security of a locking mechanism.

Casement windows are positioned vertically and swing in and out like a door. They are great for keeping air inside and circulating ventilation. Awning windows are similar to casement windows, but they're positioned horizontally and have hinges on the top.

Sliding windows are very common. They move on top and bottom tracks and are very inexpensive. They may be used as doors to the backyard, or as small sliding windows located in the basement of a house.

Lastly, a Palladian window is a set of three windows with an arch over the center. These windows are visually attractive and have become increasingly popular in the last decade.
