RoomSketcher includes many popular types of windows, with or without muntins (dividers which hold separate panes of glass), including:
A casement window is a type that is attached to a frame by hinges and can swing open from the top, bottom, or sides.
Double-hung windows have vertical sliding sashes that go up and down.
Sliding windows have sections that can slide open horizontally.
Fixed windows are fixed in place. In the examples below, notice the Sloping window and the Arched window. RoomSketcher also includes Round and Diamond Shapes.
Find and Add Windows
