As you’ve probably realized, you have many decisions to make regarding your replacement windows. Not only do you have to choose a material and color, but you’ll also need to pick a window style. One common misconception is that you have to choose the same window style that you current have. Sometimes that’s the right choice, other times, you have options.
Single and Double-Hung Windows Are Most Common
They’re common and popular because they’re the least expensive. Double-hung cost more than single hung, but generally both options cost less than the other window styles. They are a good option for any size window opening, even if that means you have several windows.
Casement Are Growing in Popularity
Although they’re more expensive, quality affordable casement windows do exist. Casement windows work well above your kitchen sink, bookshelves and other places where you would need to reach over something to open a window. They crank open to one side or the other rather than opening up and down. The direction of the casement opening is one you and your window company can decide. The best casement windows are those that are taller than they are wide.
Sliding windows have some of the same advantages that a casement window has. They slide open like a sliding door so they are also a good option over something else. Unlike the best casement window, they’re better wider than taller.
Which is the Best Window?
The best window is one that you like. For some the best are affordable casement windows. Other people like the double-hung window. Sliding windows are a popular option as well. Of course, you don’t have to have all the same window types. Some people choose mostly double-hung windows but need a sliding or casement window over their kitchen sink.
