Transom Stained Glass Ideas for Your Denver Home

Have you been pondering what to do with your transom windows? Transoms are an excellent source of light and are great for illuminating spaces that might otherwise be dark or dim. For this reason, they’re a popular choice for entryway doors that lead into foyers, staircases, smaller rooms such as bathrooms, and interior doorways. However, in terms of aesthetics, transoms are often lacking. One option you should consider is replacing the flat glass in your transoms with stained glass. Below, we’ve shared some of our favorite transom stained glass ideas for Denver homes.


What Are Transoms?

Transoms are small windows located on the uppermost section of a wall. Often, they’re placed above a doorway or another window. Usually, they’re about 1/4-1/3 of the way down from the ceiling. Rectangular shaped transoms are most common, but sometimes they can be arched, circular, octagonal, or square.


Ways to Enhance Your Transoms with Stained Glass

Transoms are practical because they let in light. But in terms of appearances, they can be quite boring. Sometimes, too, they showcase views that are less than ideal, like neighboring homes or brick walls. Fortunately, this is an easy fix. You can replace your transoms with stained glass to give your Denver home a more stylish look. Here are some of our favorite transom stained glass ideas:
