Transom windows are those short windows above the top of another window or door. They typically don’t open and are there to add more light to the living space. As a result, they can be a challenge to cover. For the video posted below, we chose a shutter. One of the main reasons was that the door had a beautiful casing or molding surrounding it and the shutter frame would match it pretty closely. When the job was done, it almost looks like part of the door assembly.

Notice the photo on the left, how the window seems small in comparison to the door beneath it. Now, notice on the right, how the frame of the shutter matches the framing of the door, causing more symmetry. Since the homeowner won’t really be using these shutters, they can be placed in the louver position that you desire and left that way.

The transom window over this door can be a challenge to decide which covering to use.
