An awning window is made with hinges at the top and can swing outward (the opposite of casement windows). This design creates the appearance of an awning from the outside, hence the name. Awning windows are great as smaller windows usually located higher on walls or above other windows. They open using either a crank or by easily pushing the bottom out.
The purpose of awning windows was initially to allow for the flow of fresh air through the house while keeping rain out. Due to the slanted design, these windows can be kept open during light showers, allowing water to roll off and away from the opening. Awning windows are a stylish touch to any home!
