A double-hung window can be raised from the bottom or lowered from the top with two sashes that move independently. The two sashes are stacked and meet in the middle with a latch that locks the window shut. Double-hung windows are simple to clean as both sashes tilt inward for easy access to the interior and exterior glass surfaces. Because double-hung windows ventilate without protruding inwards or outwards, they maximize both interior and exterior space, making them popular choices in entertainment spaces like patios and porches.
Double-hung windows are common choices in traditional and farmhouse homes. Adding a simple grille pattern furthers the traditional aesthetic, bringing modest detail and charm. Explore double-hung window inspiration, advice, frequently asked questions and more below.
