Finding your Window type

Determining which window treatment designs will work best for your room depends on the style of the windows. Firstly, take into account how the window opens. The treatment should not interfere with a window that cranks open into the room or tilts in for cleaning purposes, and it’s also helpful to know what kind of windows you have. Standard windows, often coupled or grouped in threes are what most people have in their homes

In new or remodeled homes, specialty windows, with their beautiful architectural lines that draw attention, are more prevalent.Specialty windows include arch-top, and Palladian types known for their elegantly curved shape, sometimes accompanied by transom windows Featuring a distinctive top row of rectangular windows. When treating specialty windows, keep in mind that the window covering should complement, not detract from, the inherent beauty of the window. No matter what your window type, the key to success in selecting the right window treatment style to enhance the window, whether it is new and grand or classic and modest

Standard Windows

While there are many kinds of standard windows, these are the five most common:

DOUBLE-HUNG:This window type features two glass units called sashes that slide up and down. Mullions, the grids or slats that divide the glass, are often featured on double hung and casement windows

CASEMENT: this window is generally hinged at the side or bottom and can be made up of gliding sash units that open to the side

PICTURE:To maximize the view, these windows are comprised of one large expanse of glass that does not open usually flanked by two side windows

JALOUSIE: A porch-style window found in older homes made up of a series of horizontal glass slats that tilt open

AWNING: Hinged at the top or bottom, an awning window cranks or pushes out
