A draft is a light, gentle flow of air often experienced in confined spaces, while wind is a natural movement of air in the Earth's atmosphere, varying in strength.
Draft vs. Wind

Key Differences

A draft typically refers to a slight and often cool breeze that moves through a confined space, such as a room or a building. Wind, in contrast, is a broader term for the natural movement of air outdoors, which can range from a light breeze to a powerful gale.

Drafts are often localized and can be caused by the difference in air pressure inside and outside a building. Wind, however, is a meteorological phenomenon caused by atmospheric conditions and can cover vast areas.

The experience of a draft is usually confined to enclosed or semi-enclosed areas and is often associated with discomfort, such as a chilly breeze in a room. Wind is experienced in open areas and can have various effects, from cooling to destructive, depending on its intensity.

Drafts can be controlled or minimized in indoor environments, for example, by sealing windows and doors. Wind, being a natural and dynamic component of weather, is beyond human control and plays a significant role in climatic and environmental conditions.

In terms of usage, "draft" often has a neutral or negative connotation, especially when it causes discomfort indoors. "Wind," however, can have both positive and negative connotations, depending on context and strength.
