Another solution to window coverings for transom windows is to use a pinch pleated drapery panel hung on a traverse rod. Again, note that the fabric is kept plain and from the same color palette as the walls, allowing the window to remain the architectural focal point of the room. The extra long, decorative traverse rod allows the pinch pleated drapery panels to opened widely, preserving both the beauty and light from the window.
These transom windows have an unusual detail, they are actually a mirror. This mimics the actual transom window on the other side of the room, creating symmetry. The large diameter decorative rod is the perfect size for the wide width of the window. The drapery panels are custom trimmed with a geometric, neutral band giving them just the right amount of detail.
