Popular for satisfying bedroom egress requirements, a horizontal sliding window is a favorite style for contemporary and modern homes. Single sliders only have one side that slides open, whereas both sashes open in double sliders. Double sliding windows are a good choice in rooms where you want good air circulation, particularly if they are the only window in the room.
A horizontal sliding window makes an easy-opening window over kitchen counters and sinks. Some people find sliding windows easier and faster to open than crank-style awning or casement windows. What's more, because sliding windows open without using any exterior or interior space, they work well in areas next to walkways, patios or other places where you wouldn't want a window (such as an awning or casement window) to protrude.
