What Is the Difference Between Transom Windows and Picture Windows?
While you likely have been meticulously researching your window options, you may still have some questions. One common question is, what is the difference between transom and picture windows? Transom windows are small, usually hinged windows positioned above doors or other windows. For windows, “transom” refers to the crosspiece that separates the top of the door frame from the bottom of the window above it. It allows natural light to seep through the top of your door, illuminating your entry way. While open, the transom windows also allow for ventilation throughout the home.
Picture windows, on the other hand, are wide, completely stationary windows. What that means is that the windows do not open at all and are just for viewing your yard. Picture windows often have thinner frames, allowing for breathtaking, panoramic views of the great outdoors. These are excellently suited for back of the home and paired with other windows that do open.
