A Look at What Window Styles Will Be Big in 2020 for Your Hamilton Home

Some window styles remain popular from one year to the next. Others will enjoy a period of popularity and then be out of favor for years. You are ready to do something about those ancient roll out windows, but what sort would work best in your home? By considering what has been popular for the last several years and project the trends for the coming year, you will find it easier to select windows that will be popular for many years to come. Here are four of the top suggestions to consider for your Hamilton home.

Single and Double Hung Windows

There is no doubt that single and double hung windows are a perennial favorite when it comes to residential windows. 2020 will be no exception. In fact, there are predictions that these windows will remain the most popular design for the coming year.

Single hung windows mean that the design includes two sashes. One sash is fixed in position while the other can be moved up and down. With a double hung window, both sashes can be opened and closed. One of the reasons why this design is so popular is that you can position one or both sashes to any open position you like. If the idea is to let in a little fresh air, open the window slightly. For a more prominent breeze, open the sash as much as possible. With double hung windows, you can leave the bottom sash closed for privacy or security while opening the top sash for some fresh air.

Picture Windows

Many home styles from the last several decades include at least one room where a picture window is present. Perhaps in your home it would be nice to have one as part of the formal living room. Maybe you plan on enclosing the back porch and converting the space into a sun room. You can bet a picture window would provide a beautiful place to watch the sun rise or set.

Picture windows in Hamilton today are made using tempered multiple paned glass that provides an effective barrier to the elements. At the same time, the view is not obscured. You’ll find the glass is less subject to damage than the plate glass used in decades past. Thanks to these properties, your home is more secure and the cost of heating and cooling the space will be lessened.

Awning Windows

Awning windows were on the wane for a time but have come back in a big way. Part of the popularity is how they make it easy to let plenty of fresh air into the home during the more moderate seasons of spring and autumn. With the windows hinged along the top, it’s much easier to leave them open even when it’s raining and not worry about damaging any furniture near the window. The fact that awning windows also add an element of visual interest to the home exterior has also made many homeowners consider this style to be perfect for their homes.

Sliding Windows

Contemporary homes call for streamlined window designs. Nothing beats the simplicity and the function of sliding windows in Kitchener. Instead of opening the windows by moving sashes up and down, they move from left to right. You can also order sliding windows that are equipped with tilt sashes, That makes it all the easier to clean the outside of the pane without having to go outside.

Talk with your contractor about these four styles. Compare the merits of each along with how well they will blend in with the other elements of your home. One of them is bound to ensure you home will look better in 2020 than it did in 2019.
