In Europe, tilt and turn windows have long been a popular option because of their distinctive blend of practicality and design. Over time, this appeal has progressively extended over the Atlantic to the US. And now, American homeowners are coming to appreciate these functional, European style windows.
Tilt and turn windows get their name because of their unique opening style. Unlike the majority of windows in US homes, these windows open into your home like a book or a door. Specifically, the glass frame opens into your living space and not outside of the building. They also tilt down. Because of this unique opening style, they also have a very specific way to open/close them. Learn how these unique windows open and close here.
The European style windows are admired for their superior ventilation, increased security, and effective indoor climate control. The introduction of tilt and turn windows into the US market may be attributed to their streamlined European style, enhanced functionality, and the growing trend of more energy-efficient residential windows.
Tilt and turn windows are great because not only do they let in a lot of air, they also lock securely and look very modern. These European style windows are also very energy efficient and can help you save money on your home’s utility bills.
