An archway is a warm and inviting aspect to include in our entryway.
Arches in architecture have been used in building designs for centuries. In modern home construction, their structural strength has been all but eliminated; for sheer beauty, an archway can be stunning. An arch at your front entryway can add an inviting appeal to your property, while an archway inside can open a floor plan up and draw an invitation from one room to the next.
Most archways come in kits and can be easily installed with correct measurements. Choose the style for your home design, the size desired and the best place of construction; in no time at all, you will have a masterpiece. An exterior archway for an entry can be installed as easily as hanging a door or installing a window. If you are not up to the task of a little construction work, you will want to consult a contractor to help get the job done faster and more efficiently.
Customizing an archway basically takes knowing what style you want. Here are some considerations that could lead to some great ideas in your plans for the project.
Modern archways tend to be a combination of several components from these traditional designs, but you can custom make what suits your home and complement your exterior or interior design. Be sure to consult a designer to help with the more specific details and a contractor for the construction work.
