Awning windows are excellent in tight spaces, such as over kitchen sinks, in basements and in small bathrooms. Even though you may be tight on space, you still want some fresh air and some natural light to get in. They’re easy to operate and don’t take up a lot of room, utilizing a simple crank to open and close.
Check out these uses for awning windows:
1. You can bring more light into your home in tight spaces
Why compromise on light when you can install an awning window and get the best of both worlds? Air out your kitchen when cooking, let out steam in the bathroom, or listen to the sounds of your kids playing outside while you work in the basement – all the while gaining more natural light in which to work. You can even delay switching on the lights, saving you money on energy costs.
2. They’re great for air circulation without allowing rain into the home
Even when the weather outside is less than stellar, you can still keep your awning cracked for ventilation and to hear the peaceful sounds of rain. You’ll stay dry, as well as your carpeting and furniture. This wouldn’t be possible with any other type of window. On humid summer days or in a stuffy kitchen after cooking, crank open your awning and get the cool air you need along with the proper ventilation for comfort and safety.
3. Excellent for “hard to reach” spots like over the kitchen sink or in the bathroom
We all have those hard to reach spots where we need a window but yet can’t readily access it. An awning window solves that problem, perfect for over kitchen sinks, in bathrooms, in basements, and craft rooms. They’re also good for rooms that don’t have a whole lot of space but that still need light and ventilation.
4. They’re easy to open and close with a smooth-operating crank
Ease of use is one of their biggest benefits. Smooth-operating cranks allow you to extend and retract the window as much or as little as you want. Thanks to sturdy composition, awning windows are designed to stay put once cranked out.
