Let's say I have two windows in my room, both at opposite ends. While one window is connected to another room, the other one is an outer window; by that I mean that, if you open it, you will see the view of outside. The first window goes inside another room.

How can I differentiate between the above mentioned windows? Do the highlighted phrases correctly describe what I want to say?

  • First type is 'window facing the outside of the house'. See Matt's answer for the second window type. Apr 8, 2013 at 19:47

I would call windows that look out of the house exterior windows and refer to windows pointing to other rooms of the house interior windows.
