Do It Yourself Remodeling Features

The loveliest of the doorway arch above doorways and other portals in home also have a bit of embellishment on them of some kind whether it is done with paint or wooden adornments of some kind.   However there is also a lot to be said for the purity of the undecorated doorway which is reminiscent of a portal to a home in ancient Greece.

You can get archway kits in all kinds of different sizes and this means that you can also use them to embellish the look of any portal in your home. This includes architectural elements that are in most homes such as the “window” into the kitchen from the dining room that is so common. You could also use a portal with archways to make a pleasant view from any room  into a front porch area.

Why are people mad for this style of doorway frame?  Well first of all it gives your home a more polished look like you have spent thousands of dollars in renovations when you really haven’t.  In fact you can get a great arch kit for about thirty bucks.

However you decide to decorate the portal you are not going to be disappointed by the stylish doorway arch element it adds to your home in general or by the way it adds to its overall value and worth!

Doorway arches have been associated with respectable looking dwellings for centuries which are why you see them in institutions such as churches and museums. When you  replace your square door frames with arched doorways you also get an architectural effect that is more Spanish or Graeco-Roman in effect.   They are also associated with more medieval architectures so if you are into a more Gothic style of décor you will love the look that doorway arches give your home.

If your door frame  is already quite low then you might want to reconsider your decision to install arches at all as you don’t want people to be ducking as they move through your doorways.

When installing these doorway arches you should then mark downwards on the doorway to find the height of your desired rise and then align each  pre-cut archway to the rise mark. Depending on the heft of the archway you can use a nail or a screw  to fix them into place.
