Design Ideas for Hallways & Staircases Featuring Transom Windows

Over an Opening

Hallways and foyers are — by there nature — gateways to other parts of the home. Transoms can be placed over cased openings at transition points to add style and connect spaces together. Also, since many hallways do not have windows, transoms can share light from adjoining rooms into the hall.

Over Doors

Interior hallways are often lined with doors to bedrooms, bathrooms and the like. Transform an ordinary door into a something special with a transom window.

Operating transoms were originally designed to enhance ventilation to bedrooms and other rooms off the main hall. Today they add nostalgic style to hallways.

Over Doors (Exterior)

Some hallways and foyers in particular contain exterior doors. Many exterior door companies offer transom windows in combination with their door units. This can be a good choice for standard styles.
