Awning windows have a very distinct design. Unlike many other styles, these windows open horizontally rather than vertically. They also open up to 45 degrees rather than 90 degrees or more. Their shape and functionality makes them perfect for hard-to-reach places like above your kitchen sink.
Awning windows open outwards rather than on the interior which means that you won’t need to worry about your interior furniture getting in the way while you ventilate your room. Due to the manner in which this window opens, you can ventilate the room even when it’s raining. The glass of the window acts as an awning when the window is open – hence the name.
