Casement windows offer the best of both worlds by giving a wide-open view while offering the versatility to swing open for ventilation. Screens are positioned on the inside of the window to keep pests out. Small rooms often have a casement window to bring in natural light to small spaces.
The sleek, modern design of casement windows makes them a popular choice for new construction and remodeling projects. They crank open easily and swing out for maximum airflow.
Casement windows come in many shapes and sizes meaning they can be challenging to style. They also open outward with a crank so keeping that in mind when styling is important. Shades and blinds can both be used with Casement windows. An advantage to blinds or shades is that they stay inside the window jam so they do not cover the crank.
