Beautiful, Hand Finished Wooden Awning Windows, Made to Measure & Completely Bespoke.
Awning windows are a type of window that is hinged at the top and opens outward to create a slight overhang. They are often combined with other window types, such as casement windows, to provide maximum ventilation and more natural light.
In addition, these windows are easy to install in tight spaces because they do not require extra clearance for opening. As a result, they are an ideal solution for small rooms or rooms with limited space.
If you’re thinking about choosing awning windows, you’ll be pleased to know that there are so many style choices available. However, there are some minor disadvantages that you also need to consider.
Knowing both can save you a lot of time and money.
Many awning windows offer better ventilation than other options due to their higher wall placement. It’s also possible to put your awning windows in an open position which can significantly improve the ventilation in your home.
They keep your home rain-proof
Awning windows have a unique design, and when you open them, they open outward, on a slope. Due to the hinge mechanism, awning windows can protect your home from rain and snow – even when you have the window open.
If you live in a rain prone area and hate having to close all of your windows the minute the weather gets bad, awning style windows could be the perfect solution.
Awning windows look better in small rooms
If you have a small room and want to maximise the natural light, awning windows will be a better option than the casement window. Awning style windows can be placed at vertical heights, so they won’t compromise the room’s overall design and will maximise your available space.
These windows are highly versatile
Versatility is important – especially for modern households that prefer contemporary designs. As awning windows are so flexible, they can fit seamlessly into your home’s interior and exterior – improving your living space and injecting some curb appeal.
Protect your home
It doesn’t matter if you have a flashy alarm system because determined criminals will always find a way to breach your property. Luckily, awning windows are set higher than other types, which means fewer people will try to get into them.
The potential drawbacks of awning widows
There are some minor drawbacks of awning windows, including that they might not be suitable for high-traffic properties with small children. Let’s take a brief look at the only negative aspect of these windows.
Awning windows open outward instead of upward
As these windows open differently from others, it’s easier for people to walk into them – but as long as you make people aware of the windows or put them on an upper floor, it won’t be an issue.
If you’re planning to use these windows in a commercial property or care facility, it’s important to read the health and safety guidelines, including the fire procedure.
An awning window type might not suit older or disabled individuals, but you could use different windows for the escape routes and awning windows as a decorative feature.
