Do It Yourself Remodeling Information

The loveliest of the arch kits 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.

Before you install one over a door in your home you should make sure that you have at least that much clearance or you could end up with an arch that actually cuts into your ceiling. Although this truncated archway is a “look” in itself it is a bit too space-age for most people.

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

You can get several different styles of archways as well. You can get “half rounds” which are like half-circles and give a Spanish look to a doorway, Elliptical shaped archway kits have a gentle curve in the center with a tighter radius in the corners and are reminiscent of the Edwardian style of design.  Eyebrow arches are associated with bringing a contemporary and modern feel to an entrance.

If you like you can buy pre-fabricated doorway arches but these arch kits are the way to go if you are on a budget. Prefabricated doorway arches can cost anywhere from to 0 depending on how decorative they are in style.  The other thing to keep in mind here is that the more decorative the arch the more complicated it will be to install.

You might be asking if these arch kits are made of wood and the answer is “Yes!”  They are just as sturdy and last just as long as more expensive prefabricated archways that you might possibly have to install using the help of a professional.
