The Beauty of Casement Windows
Casement windows have been in use for hundreds of years. Although there are many more window solutions available today than there were when casement windows were first used, these windows remain popular well into the 21st century.
These windows are hinged on one side, swinging outward to allow plenty of ventilation into a home. They’re operated using either a cam handle or hand crank. Casement windows are frequently found either in single or double configurations. When two casement windows share a frame, this is known as a French casement window.
Here are a few of our favorite popular ways to use casement windows:
1. Above the Kitchen Sink
Casement windows are a popular choice for kitchens for a few reasons. The hand crank makes them easy to open even when stretching across a sink. And the extra ventilation is perfect for allowing plenty of ventilation when you’re cooking, especially when the kitchen gets smoky.
2. With a Transom
Lining three or four casement windows is a beautiful way to flood a dining room or living room with plenty of cheery golden sunlight. Complete the look by adding a transom above your window set.
3. Flanking a Fixed Window
Another popular window combination starts with a fixed window in the center of two casement windows. This look gives you the flexibility and ventilation of casement windows with the simple appeal of a fixed window.
