Adding Value With Awning Windows

A great way to value to an existing room, as well as added style and function, is to replace the existing windows with hinged awning windows. Also known as casement windows, awning windows are hinged at the top, allowing for the window frame to move inward or outward. (windows hinged at the bottom are known as hoppers).

They are primarily used singly or in pairs within a common frame, in which case they are hinged on the outside. The windows are opened with a crank, lever or a cam handle, which is placed approximately hand height for the average person.

Function, style, and security are major strong points of awning windows. You certainly wouldn’t be making a bad choice if you wanted to add awning windows to an existing room.

Here are some tips for finding a suitable bed.

  • Adjustable beds often have a great deal of features. Making a list of what is suitable will help you to avoid a bed that has too many or too few.
  • If your target market may have potential health conditions, think about ‘future-proofing’ the bed purchase. It might not be necessary for them to need a fully adjustable bed now, but it could be worth it in the future.
  • Look for the National Bed Federation mark of approval. Manufacturers belonging to this scheme have to meet certain standards and sign up to a code of practice.
