Some people easily confuse awning windows with traditional casement windows.
However, the two types of windows have one major difference. Casement windows have their hinges mounted on the side while awning windows, on the other hand, have their hinges mounted at the top.
Awning windows optimize the amount of glass similar to casement windows. Choosing awning windows over other types of windows actually depends on the construction of a home or building as well as the look you want to achieve.
