Interior design has few boundaries as interior designers on TV shows are constantly trying to shock people by adding strange elements to a space that usually end up looking very cool. One design aspect that is rarely used is interior windows.
While you wouldn’t want anyone to be able to see into your bedroom, interior windows do have their place in interior design. Some rooms need to have sound attenuation , but the addition of standard walls may make the space feel less spacious. Large windows and walk in glass french doors can frame out a perfect TV room or den that is perfect for escaping into. This is also great if you have small children as they can be monitored from anywhere in the adjacent room.
An advantage to adding windows in a wall may have nothing to do with keeping an open concept, but have everything to do with transferring light from one area to another. Installing windows at the top of a wall between spaces can transfer light from once room to another. This creates a cool way to light multiple spaces without installing a lot of lights.
Modern Interior Window Concepts
Installing windows and creating designs on the windows with masking tape can create an artistic feel to the entire space. Spray a glass hazing spray over the entire window. Let the spray dry and pull the masking tape off of the glass to reveal the artistic designs that you have created. You can even add an interior water feature that has this type of window in the background. This can create significant looking depth to the water feature.
Interior windows may not be something that is typical, but can be extremely beautiful and lighten up a modern space. This type of construction is often showcased in commercial buildings where large windows are placed between conference rooms and hall ways, most likely as a way to see who is in a meeting if an emergency arises. This concept was originally developed to save on the amount of light fixtures needed in a building, making this an eco-friendly option as well.
