We speak a lot about windows – their size, where to place them, how to style them and how to maximize the natural light coming from them. Today’s roundup is dedicated to a very unexpected type of windows that are usually not discussed as they aren’t a feature that can be seen everywhere – interior or internal windows.
What Are Interior Window Advantages?
Interior windows are an unexpected design feature in a home that allows natural light to flow from one room to another. Adding interior windows is also a great way to make a room feel more open without completely removing a wall. Such windows easily connect spaces together allowing you to look how your family are cooking or to look after a baby in the next room. Interior windows maintain internal sight lines to conserve a sense of space and openness. They provide a sound barrier unlike usual space dividers in an open layout and provide nice ventilation.

What Are Interior Window Disadvantages?
Less privacy, especially if the window is pretty large. An interior window is a design feature that may fit not every space and should be styled properly, you should consider its type and its framing. It’s more costly to have a wall with a window than just a usual wall.
