Narrow windows, also known as slim windows or skinny windows, are a great way to let in natural light without sacrificing your privacy. They add a modern touch to your interior and create a unique look on the exterior of your home.
Here are 6 examples of narrow windows used in various locations throughout the home to create brighter spaces that still feel private.
