What Is a Hopper Window?
At first glance, a hopper window looks similar to an awning window, but it is hinged at the bottom instead of the top. In most installations, this allows the sash to tilt in from the top, creating plenty of ventilation without sacrificing privacy or natural light. Installed high in a bathroom, it can provide fresh air and natural light for the room, or in a basement, it can help to exhaust musty air while illuminating the area below it. Hopper windows can also be added below picture windows or double-hung windows for extra ventilation, or they can be added above doors to bring in fresh air without oping the door itself. In some installations, the hopper window may tilt out at the top, providing ventilation without getting in the way inside.
The Pros & Cons of Hopper Windows
Hopper windows can add light and airflow to any room, and because of their small size and their unique design, they are more secure than other types of windows. They are easy to operate and can lock securely when not in use.
Hopper windows do not open very wide, however, and if they are the type that tilts outward, they may catch rain and insects, plus they offer less privacy than the inward-tilting variety. Inward-tilting hopper windows create an obstacle inside your home, and they can interfere with curtains, drapes, or blinds, so care should be taken when selecting the location for hopper windows.
