Keeping It Simple with Windows from Home Solutions Midwest

Monday, April 20th, 2015


Sometimes, less is more when choosing window types. Simple things may look bland but, if you know how to combine it with other windows, it may help enhance the overall look of your home. For example, the simplicity of a window balances out the designs on the other exterior parts of your home so that it stands out on its own.

 

Basic Window Types

Here are some basic window styles and the benefits of each type.

1. Picture - This fixed window type brings in more natural light into your home.

2. Double hung - This type of window is one of the most commonly used in period homes. It consists of two sashes that move up and down.

3. Casement - This type of window is also called a crank window because of the way it works: it is hinged vertically and opens using a crank. This is used for a more modern look and to allot more ventilation in the room.

4. Sliding/Gliding - This window type is placed on a track and moves left or right. It allows more light to pass through the window.

Aside from choosing the right window type for your home, here are other factors that you should consider when choosing casement windows in Owatonna, MN.
