Every home has interior doors that separate one room from another. Interior doors are not only a source of privacy, but they also provide a sound barrier and noise reducer between spaces. Where most interior doors are very simple in their design, they do not add any additional aesthetic appeal to the rooms in your home. One form of interior door that can add a new touch to any room, are interior transom doors.

There are a number of people who are now looking to add something new to their home by installing transom doors. These doors not only provide the room with a solid barrier that gives the necessary privacy, but they give an extra design touch courtesy of a pane of frosted glass. This pane of glass is installed above the frame of the solid wood door. The frosted glass pane opens up the room and allows natural light to pass from one room to the other. There is no need to worry about the frosted pane of glass causing problems with privacy.

Add a new design element to the rooms of your home by taking this approach to the kind of interior doors that are installed. Many people are now adding this look to their homes by switching out standard, and often boring, doors that are typically installed in homes for something new. Transom doors provide all of the same high quality privacy and noise reduction of standard doors, even with the frosted pane of glass that is installed over the door. The contrast between the frosted glass panel and a wide variety of wood door options, you will be able to install a new interior design element that will stand up to the test of time. It will make guests to your home consider making similar changes to the interior doors of their home.
