We offer a full range of custom built doors and windows to our Perth area clients. One type that isn’t often discussed but can look great is awning windows. Awning windows aren’t for everyone, but they can look very nice and be very practical in the right situation.
What are Awning Windows?
Awning windows are named as such because they open out like an awning. They are mounted on a hinge at the top of the frame. When the window opens, it opens outward from the top. If it is held open, its shape is reminiscent of an awning.
Advantages of Awning Windows
One of the biggest advantages of awning windows is that they can be positioned high on a wall and still provide great function. The ventilation all comes in through the bottom due to their shape. So a window that is mounted near the ceiling can provide great ventilation while also fostering privacy due to its height.
Mounting an awning window high on a wall also allows for more clearance if you want to put furniture or decorations by a wall.
Maybe the best advantage of awning windows is that they can let ventilation in without letting in the rain. If you like to keep your windows open during the rain, awning windows are perfect.
Awning windows also provide a modern look despite their nearly timeless technology. The best way to explain is to have you look at some pictures.
