21 Trendy Transoms to Transform Your Home with Stained Glass

Do you have a transom window or two in your home? If you’re not exactly sure what a transom is – it’s the little section that sits above the top of your door. They can come in different shapes and sizes, and were traditionally named after the transom beam which runs along the top of the door separating it from the window above. Transoms add a charming touch of classic elegance which goes right back to when they were first used in Victorian row houses.

So if you want to transform your home with some stunning stained glass, a transom window is a great place to start. Most transoms nowadays are used for decorative purposes, so why not add character to your home with an attractive stained glass design. Whether it is at your front entrance or over one of the interior doors, your home will be enhanced with the warm and colorful glow of diffused light.
