Casement windows are hinged at the side and crank outward which makes them ideally suited for locations where you have to reach over counters. They open fully for increased ventilation, easy cleaning and unobstructed views.
A casement window may be a good option for places where space is minimal, but light and ventilation are desired. Casement windows can be installed at all heights, to maintain security while allowing in light and fresh air from outside.
Casement windows are also a great idea for areas that might not currently have a window, but natural lighting is needed.
