What Are Hopper Windows?

Hopper windows are a variation of casement windows that are hinged at the bottom and open inward into the home, like an oven door. Most hopper windows are smaller than a standard window, and they’re typically rectangular, with a shorter height and longer width. This makes them useful for adding ventilation without sacrificing privacy.

Hopper windows are commonly used as basement windows to provide ventilation and light. They’re also frequently used:

  • In small bathrooms
  • Above or below a larger window
  • In or above a door

Hopper Windows vs. Awning Windows

Looking at a hopper window, you might be thinking, “Well, that’s just an upside-down awning window!” If so, you’d be correct. Awning and hopper windows are both casement-type windows, meaning that their sashes are attached to the frames with hinges.

On awning windows, these hinges are along the top, whereas on hopper windows, they’re along the bottom. The biggest functional difference between these two types is that the sashes on awning windows open outward, while the sashes on hopper windows open inward.

The Benefits of New Hopper Windows

Other advantages of hopper windows include:

  • More ventilation: Hopper windows can offer great ventilation because they open fully.
  • More natural light: The glass in a hopper window is typically a single, large pane free of muntins, gridding, or other breaks in the glass. This lets in as much light as possible. That’s one of the reasons they’re commonly used in darker spaces.
  • Security: Hopper windows use a hook lock that’s set into the frame on the interior. This makes locking them very easy, and it also makes them nearly impossible to break into.

While hopper windows can be used in many areas, the most popular places homeowners often choose to install them are:

  • Basements
  • Walkways
  • Kitchens
  • Bathrooms

“Zen Windows excels with its customer service. From the initial process of getting a quote to follow-up after the installation, the experience was enjoyable. It’s not often you can say that about a company from start to finish. There was no pressure in upselling or during the time we delayed a little bit to research other providers. The team was 100% professional.” -Bob N., St. Louis
