Polarisers are useful to reduce strong reflected light from windows or stronger contre-jour. You can avoid burning out the reflection light. However, that's going to be more true of interiour shots without flash.

Exactly. When strong outdoor light reflects off of shiny surfaces such as hardwood flooring  or polished stone counter tops, a polarizing filter is useful. If you use off-camera flashes to match the interior light with the light from outdoors, the filter requires more flash power, more flashes and, or a wider aperture.

Reflections from flashes require a polarizing filter gel for the flash and a filter with the opposite polarization for the lens.
