Champaign Double-Hung Windows

Classic Double-Hung Design Still Fits Modern Styles

In the rapidly-growing Columbus area, housing trends are shifting away from the historic roots of the college town and moving toward more modern designs. Double-hung windows have long been the favorite of American homes, so their timeless look and functionality complement houses old and new.

Double-hung windows are similar to single-hung windows, with one big difference: they have two operable sashes instead of one. That small difference unlocks additional functionality. You can open both sashes for improved air circulation at the top and bottom of the window. And the sashes tilt inward for easy cleaning of the outside of the glass.

Commonly known as: sash windows, double sash windows, double-hung sash windows

Energy-Efficient Windows

The classic look and design of double-hung windows has been a favorite of homeowners for decades. But modern double-hung windows are more energy efficient. Instead of a traditional single-pane window, you can upgrade to double-pane or triple-pane double-hung windows. These energy-efficient options combine multiple layers of glass with insulating glass between the panes to create a barrier between your home and the Columbus weather.

Mid-Century Modern Windows

Columbus saw a similar growth spurt in the 1950s and 1960s, increasing in population by more than 40 percent in that time. Mid-century modern design was the trend of the day, so many Columbus homes still feature the era’s ranch and split-level floor plans, floor-to-ceiling windows and simple style. Neighborhoods such as Whitehall and Upper Arlington are known for their Mid-century modern homes. Double-hung windows are popular in these houses because the horizontal sashes provide clean lines and highlight the flat architecture.

Black Window Frames

Black window trim is one of the biggest trends in modern home decor. On the interior, black window frames are simple yet elegant, framing the scenery outside like an art piece on the wall. On the exterior, black windows complement nearly any color scheme. Black double-hung windows add emphasis to Mid-century modern and modern style homes by drawing attention to the sleek lines and walls of glass.

Wood Windows

Wood windows are welcoming and comforting, a characteristic preferred by homes from the Victorian era through Mid-century modern style. Wood double-hung windows provide natural beauty and natural insulating properties. You can preserve the natural look with a stain that brings out the wood grain. Or choose black interior and exterior wood frames for a more modern aesthetic.
