What is an Awning Type Window?Awning windows are a type of window that features hinges on the top of the window frame and opens outward from the bottom. Awning windows are typically wide and short, however, at Minnkota Windows we offer them with tall and narrow customizations as well. Awning Windows can serve many purposes for a homeowner. They can be used above kitchen sinks when their operating handles don’t interfere with the faucet. It provides a clear view to the outside without meeting rails that hung and slider windows might create. Because of the way that awning windows open, they are excellent at allowing hot air to exit and allowing a cool breeze into your home.
The benefit of awning windows is that you can let in the fresh air and a breeze at any time, even when it is raining! Awning windows are typically placed high on walls for privacy with added airflow and sunlight but are also frequently found above large windows and doors to add additional sunlight to a room and maximize wall space.
Difference Between Hopper Window and Awning WindowHopper and Awning windows are both great for letting in a select amount of outdoor elements, but what’s the difference? We covered the way that an awning window opens and a hopper window is similar but opens in the reverse ways of an awning window. A hopper window opens from the top and leans inward and has the ability to open completely. The hopper window type is popular for basements and bathrooms.
