Transom Window Over a Door in a Bathroom

Notwithstanding the beautiful pictures below, many bathrooms have no windows at all. So transoms windows over a door can be an easy way to bring natural light from a hallway or a bedroom into the bathroom.

Transom Window Over an Opening in a Bathroom

Openings to shower stalls or transitions from vanity areas to the shower area can be an interesting place for transom windows. Operating transoms can even provide ventilation in steamy places. We make these style transoms out of exterior grade material.

Transom Window Overhead in Wall in a Bedroom

Sometimes a transom can be added to link two rooms together by adding the transom overhead โ€” above vanities or a shower. Not only does this share light, it creates a very unique look.

Planning your transom is
Easier than you think.

Transom Window Along an Exterior Wall in a Bathroom

Probably the easiest place for an exterior transom window is above a shower or tub/shower combination. This brings exterior light into the bathroom, but does require coordination with the tile shower walls.

One option is to surround the transom completely as shown below.

More typically, customers hold the tile short of the transom โ€” placing the transom (and its casing) immediately above the top of the tile on the wall.

Another place for transoms along an exterior wall is along the vanity wall. This can really be one of the more dramatic places for a transom in a bathroom.
