Modern Window Designs
A bay window consists of a large picture window flanked by two smaller windows setat angles. This large window can actually be used as a small hideaway or a comfortable window seat.
Bow windows combine four or more windows at equal angles to form a gently arching outward curve. Similar to Bay windows, this style allows a large amount of light to shine in a room.
A casement window features a side hinge, so it opens and closes like a book when cranked or manually operated. Due to a tighter seal, casements resist air and water infiltration, but may also block ventilating breezes.
The French casement window offers another unique and elegant option. It features two operating windows that crank outward and no center post, creating an unobstructed view of the outdoors.
Awning windows often accompany casements, picture windows or other awning windows. They are hinged at the top to allow light and ventilation without exposure to rain.
Traditional double-hung windows come in many variations. You can get Ultimate Double Hung, Ultimate Double Hung Round Top, Ultimate Double Hung Magnum and Ultimate Insert Double Hung windows made by Marvin. Choose from a full range of wood species, energy-efficient glass, screens, clad colors and hardware finish options.
The glider’s sash slides horizontally for simple operation and energy efficiency in spaces where a swinging sash would be in the way.
These type of windows incorporate round, polygon or other shapes to add dimension and drama to a window or door configuration. You can get a wide variety of shapes from hexagons, octagons, trapezoids, triangles, half and quarter rounds, ellipticals and hundreds of other shapes.
