Picture of three windows over a kitchen sink. One of the windows, a casement, is open.

Casement windows work well in tricky to reach spots like over the kitchen sink.

Casement windows are one of the most popular window styles on the market. These stylish windows are versatile, easy ­to ­operate and offer huge design flexibility. Here are some of the functional and aesthetic reasons why casements windows might be a good fit for your home.

Ease of Operation

Casement windows sit vertically and are equipped with a crank handle. This makes them easier to open and close than hung windows or slider windows. They are also ideal for tricky spaces, such as over a kitchen sink or anywhere else around the home that might be tough to reach.

Ventilation and Airflow

Choose casement windows for the most airflow and ventilation. The window sash opens a full 90 degrees allowing the entire window to be completely open. The crank handle also makes it easy to customize the exact level of airflow you are receiving.

Style Versatility

Casement windows have a similar external appearance to non-operational fixed windows. This makes it easy to mix-and-match casement and fixed units and build an elegant wall of windows in your home. Let natural light flood into your home with this window style.
