If you’re buying a custom luxury home in Charlotte, you need to know about your window options – and how to choose what’s right for you.
Major Window Types in Luxury Homes
There are eight major types of windows you’ll see in custom luxury homes around Charlotte.
Stationary windows come in a variety of shapes and sizes, but they all have one thing in common: They don’t open. They’re usually placed near operating windows, but not always.
Double-hung windows feature two sashes that slide up and down. You can open them from the top or the bottom.
Casement windows operate by turning a crank, and they’re hinged. They open from side-to-side and can open inward or outward, but outward is more common.
Awning windows are hinged at the top and open outward. Sometimes they’re installed beside, below or above stationary windows.
Picture windows are stationary – they don’t open – but they do let in an amazing amount of light.
Bay windows protrude out from a home’s exterior, giving you a little more interior space and, in many cases, improving the home’s outward appearance, too.
Transom windows are typically narrow, and they can operate or be stationary. Usually, they’re placed over a door or another window to maximize the amount of natural light that comes in.
Slider windows move on tracks, and one window slides over or past the other. Usually, only one side opens.
