What Are Awning Windows?

Awning windows are hinged at the top and open from the bottom, making them a great space saver. These windows are usually installed high up on basement walls. Since they open outward, awning windows are ideal for basements and first-floor bathrooms.

Pros and Cons of Awning Windows

Awning windows offer a variety of benefits. Their design helps prevent rain from entering your home, meaning you can leave them open during all but the heaviest storms. They also save space while bringing in light, and they allow for great ventilation. Awning windows are small compared to more traditional options like single- or double-hung windows, making them more affordable while still providing safety and protection with their latching system.

Because awning windows are usually installed near ground level, they require an unobstructed outdoor area to function properly; if they open next to a sidewalk or patio area, they could be hazardous to pedestrians. They also may require more frequent cleaning than other window types.

Enjoy the space-saving, light-enhancing, and cost-effective benefits of awning windows in your North Carolina home.

Frequently Asked Questions


When should you use awning windows?

Awning windows can be used essentially anywhere you want an operable window, if you like the design. Awning windows are frequently used higher up on walls to maintain privacy in a room while still being easily operable, i.e., in a bathroom or other private room.

You can also use an awning window in combination with another window for a greater view with full operability. Awning windows tend to endure the elements better and have higher efficiency than more common window designs, all things equivalent.

Are awning windows safe?

Awning windows are quite good at enduring storms, high winds, and other natural threats by their design. For security against break-ins, awning windows designed with locking mechanisms can be exceptionally secure — and smaller awning windows can provide plenty of visibility and ventilation potential while still being too small to be a reasonable point of entry. Although smaller windows also cannot serve as a point of egress for emergencies or fire codes. By any standard you’re considering, awning windows are safe.

Are awning windows good for bathrooms?

Bathrooms might be the single most popular application of awning windows. While they can work anywhere, the ability to have an operable window for ventilation and a source of natural light without giving up privacy is a great thing.

Because of how they are opened and closed, you can put an awning window high up on your bathroom wall, at head level or higher, and still be able to easily open and close it. Imagine trying to slide a hung window open or closed with its sill at neck height and you’ll understand why awning windows are so popular for this purpose.
