Entry foyer with transoms over openings

This is the foyer of a small cape that we renovated. By adding the transom windows above the cased openings we made the space feel larger, lighter and more open. Photo by Nancy Hill.

Thanks for your interest. I'm sorry, I don't remember exactly. I think it was about 5' wide.

Transom windows - What is the size of transoms? I have lower ceilings and I'm adding a wall I would like the opening to have a transom but not sure if 8" transom by 56" would be too narrow.

I agree, both transoms appear to be 8" or so. We build this model (TR-1) all the way down to 6" as necessary. Also notice how the crown is well integrated into the RB-3 type casing to maximize the size of the transom. Good job. See this model at http://goo.gl/krtWmb.

Hi Dandarada,
Thanks for your interest. I'm sorry I don't have that information. I would check out Rejuvenation though, they may have something similar. www.rejuvenation.com

Hi Lisa, I'm sorry you haven't received it yet. We mailed the magazine via priority mail on Tuesday afternoon. We just checked the mailing tracker... and apparently they tried to deliver the package on March 15th. Do you want to send me your email address and I can send you the link to the tracker, with the label info, so that you can follow up with your mail carrier or post office? My email address is jhuestis@huestistucker.com. Thanks.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Rachel Grace added this to Renovation Detail: The Transom Window
Upon entering this Connecticut home, you are greeted by doorways with transom windows on either side. They make the space feel larger, lighter and more open.
