Sometimes the opening to the retreat or study will have an opening with no door. Transoms can play a role in stylizing these openings.

Overhead in Wall

One of the most unique applications of an interior transom is overhead in a wall between rooms. In bedrooms these can commonly be placed between bedroom and bathroom or bedroom and hall (both shown below).

Overhead Along Wall (Exterior)

Another option is to place transoms along an exterior wall, especially along the wall with bed. This configuration provides another wall of outside light without interfering with furniture placement.
