Window Recommendation??

I am planning to replace my kitchen windows. Just confused with what type of windows should I install. We currently have double hung windows. I am getting it done through a window installation company in Toronto. They
I think Awning windows would a good option. Any suggestions??

Do your present windows have screening. I hear that the black flies and mosquitoes are ferocious in Canada. Sort of like Maine. Do you have AC? If you plan of opening the windows for a breeze, and you have screening, then consider the windows that is going to allow the largest amount of a breeze. Are the new windows going to be easy to reach and clean (both sides).

Four things I can think of:
Easy to clean (both sides)
Letting in fresh air
Keeping out flying critters
Ease of opening and closing.

Yes, we do have to deal with mosquitoes. We have screens on the other windows and will be adding one more to the new window. We got a end vent slider windows installed. They are going to be super easy to clean and I believe that it won't be much of a fuss to install the screens.

I always wanted a green house window in the kitchen for growing herbs.
