The choice mostly depends on your personal preference, the layout of your basement, and the window size required by code. Casement windows are a popular choice because they fully open, offering a large exit in case of emergencies.

One potential disadvantage could be the cost of installation and maintenance. However, the safety benefits they provide outweigh these costs. Additionally, without proper installation and maintenance, issues like water leakage can occur.
