Awning windows

Awning windows are hinged on the top and open outward from the bottom, allowing for ventilation and protection from the rain. Often placed higher on walls for privacy or in combination with large stationary windows for a better view.

What is an awning window?

Awning windows are the windows you can open in the rain. They’re hinged at the top, cranking open outward like a canopy to prevent rain from getting in. This makes them one of the best windows for bathrooms, where you might want extra ventilation no matter the weather. Pairing them with picture windows (non-opening) will also help you bring in fresh air where there otherwise wouldn’t be any and is a popular look for modern-style homes.

Why choose awning windows?

Open in the rain

They create a canopy when opened that prevents rain from getting in, making them great for bathrooms where you might want extra ventilation no matter the weather.

Pairs well with others

Pairing an awning window with a picture window (non-opening) gives you all the benefits of a picture window while also letting in fresh air.

More private

They’re one of the best windows for privacy since their shape and crank opening make them great for placing high on walls.
