standart double glazed window designI guess you’re currently on the verge of adding a set of new stylish double glazed windows to your house, but you know nothing about them except you’ve seen them on pictures and noticed already installed in other homes.  Then you really doubt that the newly chosen window design can fit in your home interior.  I hope the given short guide here below will help you to understand the very essence of double glazed window designs much better.

It’s clear that to make a rational decision when it comes to purchasing a particular set of double glazed windows one should be aware of the major currently existing types of these crucial home interior elements. These days manufacturers offer three types of double glazed windows, so let’s have a closer look at them.

The first type is the bay window.  As usual these windows are installed in houses, which feature multilateral shaped sections or extended square sections. The given window design has a very traditional look, so if you adore old-school solutions you will be fully satisfied.  Another positive feature of bay windows is that they’re capable of making any room far more spacious than it really is.

Now I’d like to mention double glazed casement windows or awning windows.  Double glazed casement windows stand out from other window designs by their rich appointing of hinges on their both sides.  I’d like to add that these hinges are often dubbed “hoppers”.

Finally, it is time to learn more about the third type of double glazed windows.  Have you ever heard about sash windows?  Most probably, you have seen them in them in old movies, where sashes tend to move vertically.  However, sashes in these windows may also move horizontally, thus resembling sliding doors in trains.  As for me, I consider vertically moving sashes as the only true, authentic variant.
