A transom window is horizontally shaped accent window that is located above another window, patio door or entry door.

Transom windows are popular because they serve as an architectural accent. Their unique designs and styles enable them to act as an ideal architectural accent. Some are rectangular while others are fan-shaped. They also have different angles of alignment, and their frames come in unique forms. With the plenty of options at your disposal, you can choose any design style that will give your home a unique architectural accent.
