When and Why to Use Transom Windows

What are Transom Windows

Transom windows are small windows appearing above or beside a door or other window and are often fan-shaped, but can be other shapes as well. Transom windows are primarily decorative, but they also serve a function. These types of windows add extra light to the room and some transom windows even add ventilation to a room.

Why You Should Install Transom Windows

Transom windows are a good addition to any home in Chicago. If your room could use additional light, and you want to maintain privacy, adding a transom window can accomplish that goal. Some transom windows are also functional (they can be opened and closed), which adds additional ventilation to a room. Transom windows can be especially helpful in bathrooms, where they can add extra light and ventilation without sacrificing privacy.
