Basements can be one of your home’s most underutilized rooms. Instead of using them for storage purposes, many homeowners are seeing the benefit of transforming these rooms into family living areas, a craft hub, an apartment among other uses. Moreover, an important part of any remodel is choosing the right window for the room. Learn how hopper windows from Seemray can be part of your basement’s transformation.
What is Hopper Windows?
Hopper windows earn their name from their functionality. Unlike traditional windows that swing open to let fresh air into your home, a hopper window operates by opening inwardly. To open it, you grab the window handle and pull towards you.
Additionally, this inward tilt achieves advantages you won’t find with normal windows. For one, the angle of the tilt allows a steady flow of fresh air into your home so you can enjoy the outdoors even from the comfort of your basement.
Adding more appeal to this tilt is it prevents your pets from escaping. And it protects your home from unwanted furry guests who could invite themselves in–if you were using a regular window that opens outwardly.
Along with keeping your pets and kids inside, it also can protect against the elements when the weather turns. Overall, you gain better ventilation while keeping your kids and/or pets safer.
