Awnings and Window Hoppers
The best designs and projects are often the most innovative and unexpected, which combine classic styles with more modern or unique design features and elements. This can create a home that is elegant and also thoughtfully crafted.
Windows are one of the most important parts of any home and should not be pushed into the background. Instead, we encourage our clients who want to explore different types of window designs and can help them choose the best options for their projects.
The use of awnings and window hoppers is a clever design technique that can make the most of any space and create unexpected dimensions to the space whilst simultaneously improving lifestyle.
What are Awnings and Hopper Windows?
Steel awning windows are a style of window that is attached by the top of the frame and therefore are opened outward and upwards, with the handle located at the bottom of the window.
The way that steel awnings open means that water cannot get into the home even when it is heavily raining. This can make them a great option for any area that goes through rainy seasons or where you want to be able to enjoy fresh air throughout the year regardless of the weather.
Awnings are a popular choice for all types of rooms but are most commonly found in kitchens and bathrooms as they provide great ventilation and light even when placed at a higher position.
There are also awnings that can be placed over doors, such as a Juliet awning or steel window hoods. These are great design features that frame a doorway and create welcoming energy.
Hopper windows can be seen as the opposite of steel window awnings, with the window attached to the bottom of the frame and opening inwards and downwards. Hoppers are especially popular for smaller spaces such as loft apartments or half bathrooms.
Just like awnings for windows, they provide lots of ventilation and good security as they are more difficult to pry open.
Which Type of Window to Choose?
Deciding whether to opt for metal window awnings or hoppers comes down to personal taste and lifestyle needs. Both are excellent options as they allow year-round ventilation for any room, even small mudrooms or bathrooms. Awning windows may be more popular for bathrooms as they can be installed at a higher position, thereby allowing for greater privacy but remaining convenient.
Both window options come with a balance of beauty, style, and functionality. In a home where there are countless conventional windows, it can be creative to install a few hoppers or awnings in carefully selected locations.
