Kansas Double-Hung Windows

Traditional Style Makes Sash Windows Stand Out

Double-hung windows have a timeless look and functionality that has made them a favorite of homeowners for decades. They’ve been incorporated into the architecture of Kansas’ farm cottages, Victorian mansions and Craftsman bungalows.

Double-hung windows offer the distinct advantage of two operable sashes, which earned them the name of sash windows. With two sashes, you can better control the comfort of your home by opening both up for increased air circulation. The design also provides an advantage with cleaning. Double-hung windows tilt in so you can easily reach the outside of the glass from the inside of your home.

Popular Local Trends & Styles


  • Cottage window style Cottage Style

    Cottage-style homes are similar to other traditional styles in that they emphasize ornate detail and character over symmetry and sleekness. In Kansas, they bring back the comforts of the small farm cottages that still remain in the rural parts of the state. Cottage-style double-hung windows are paired together with a mullion and square grilles to up the character of the home’s exterior. They might sit beneath an arch window or be tall and narrow to mirror the vertical look of the pitched roofs of Cottage-style houses.

  • Black double-hung windows Black Windows One of the few modern design trends that has stood out from Kansan’s preference for traditional features is black window trim. Black window frames are modern yet versatile, fitting color schemes of any combination. They look great on brick, stone and even dark exteriors. The classic look of a white house with black windows has made a comeback, melding the modern with the traditional.
  • Victorian style window Victorian Style

    Double-hung windows are a fixture of the Victorian architecture commonly spotted around Topeka. Whether they’re included as flankers in an oriel window or in a combination of triple or twin double-hung windows, they fit the gothic feel of the Victorian era. Victorian-style windows are narrow to create an illusion of height. Double-hung windows often had grilles or sat below arched windows to provide more architectural interest on the front of Victorian homes.

  • Energy efficient window Energy-Efficient Windows

    Homeowners in Kansas might be attracted to some more traditional styles, but they don’t want the drafty, cold environment that comes with owning an old home. Double-pane and triple-pane windows use multiple layers of glass that can make older homes more energy efficient. Upgrading from single-pane windows to ENERGY STAR-certified windows provides an average annual energy savings between $236 and $3661, depending on where you live in Kansas.
