Whether you have a little space or plenty of room, awning windows are the perfect solution for bringing lighting into your home. Hinged at the top and designed to open outward at the bottom, awning windows are easy to open for ventilation. Further, their outward opening design means they can be opened during the rain without water seeping into the home.
Because of their small size, awning windows can be positioned high up on the wall for additional privacy. Alternatively, they can be paired in combination with larger, stationary windows, which enhances the view and makes it possible to enjoy the benefits and advantages of both types of windows.

Advantages & Special Considerations of Awning Windows
Awning windows can be positioned higher on the wall than other types of windows. This allows you to enjoy natural light and fresh air while maintaining a high degree of privacy and security. In fact, they provide superior ventilation when compared to sliding windows, double-hung windows, and many other styles. Awning windows can be grouped with other types of windows to enhance the view, and they blend in well with both traditional and modern architectural styles.
Awning windows are also ideal for helping to keep external noise pollution outside the home. This makes them perfect for windy areas, city streets, and busy neighborhoods. When coupled with energy-efficient glass, awning windows will also deliver superior insulating properties.
One concern with awning windows is their outward opening design. This makes them susceptible to impacts when they are positioned on the first floor or in areas near patios, porches, and pathways. They are also not effective as an emergency egress. Their small size and typically high placement mean that it is very difficult to crawl through these in an emergency situation.
Finally, they require some practice to learn how to properly clean the window. However, with a little extra attention to dusting and wiping, awning windows aren’t more difficult to clean than other window options.
