Transom Window Over an Opening in a Laundry or Mud Room

The pathway from a kitchen or other living area to the mudroom is a perfect place for a transom window. Not only will the transom share light between the two rooms, the transom visually connects the two rooms together.

The opening shown below could easy also be a door or pocket door with a transom above instead of an opening.

Transom Window Along a Exterior Wall in a Laundry or Mud Room

Another keen placement for a transom in a mudroom or laundry is overhead in an exterior wall. Overhead transoms leave the wall space below open for built-ins, laundry equipment or other furniture or cabinets.

Since mudrooms often have built-ins or areas for hanging jackets and such, overhead transoms can be a great solution to bring more light into the room without taking valuable call space for a full window.

In a laundry room, overhead transoms bring sunlight while preserving wall space for sinks and laundry equipment.

Transom Window Above Exterior Doors in a Laundry or Mud Room

Of course mudrooms have a door to outside the home. When this opening leads directly to the outside — like to a porch or stoop — a transom above a door can not only be decorative but also serve to let additional light into the confined space.

Easier than you think.

Transoms Over Exterior Windows in a Laundry or Mud Room

Sometimes you can fit a whole window into a mudroom or laundry design — for instance over a sink. Notice how the transom over the window takes the design to the next level.
