Originally used for air conditioning purposes, transom windows are windows that don’t actually open to the outdoors. Instead, they provide light and sometimes ventilation throughout the house. With the advent of air conditioning systems, transom windows are not as frequently used for ventilation as they are used to add elegance and light to a home.
Transom windows can either be installed to connect two rooms and they can also be added above a entry door for a lovely focal point to an entryway. In all cases, there will be a transom beam which will act as the lower frame for the window.
In many cases, homeowners will add a transom window between two rooms to create an illusion of an open floor plan. Transom windows add class and sophistication to what could be an otherwise ordinary home.
