Double-hung windows

Double-hung windows are one of the most popular windows on the market. Chances are, you already have this style in other rooms in your home.

You can open a double-hung window from either the bottom or the top. Traditionally, they feature a white checkerboard of panes of glass on both the bottom and the top, but you can play around with the panes or the sash material.

These popular windows are nearly fool-proof. If you have them throughout your home, they may tie the whole space together.

However, if your new kitchen features deep counters, these might not be right for you. Double-hung windows need two hands to open, and can be a challenge to maneuver when reaching across your sink, especially if you keep your windows locked at the center.
