What Are the Different Types of Windows

As a full-service lumber and home improvement company, we at Local Lumber & Supply often get asked about the different types of windows available on the market. Here is a brief overview of the most popular types of windows to help you make an informed decision when it comes time to replace the windows in your home.

Window Types

  • Casement windows are hinged on one side and open outward, much like a door. They are a great option for rooms that get a lot of natural ventilation, like a kitchen or bathroom.
  • Double-hung windows have two sashes that slide up and down, similar to a traditional window. They are a great option for rooms that get a lot of sunlight, as you can open the top sash to let the heat out without sacrificing privacy.
  • Picture windows are large, fixed windows that are typically used to frame views. They are a great option for living rooms or bedrooms, as they let in a lot of natural light.
  • Bay and bow windows are similar to picture windows, but they protrude from the exterior of the home. Bay windows have three panels, while bow windows have four or more. They are a great option for adding extra light and space to a room.
  • Awning windows are hinged at the top and open outward, similar to a casement window. They are a great option for rooms that get a lot of natural ventilation, like a kitchen or bathroom.
  • Skylights are fixed windows that are installed on the roof of the home. They are a great option for rooms that get a lot of sunlight, as they let in a lot of natural light.
