These designs attract attention with a special look. Products of this type make the interior more refined and sophisticated. Further in the article we will take a closer look at the arched models and describe their varieties.

Special features

Designers note that arched doors easily and harmoniously fit into various stylistic directions. Interior models made of natural wood add to the atmosphere of home warmth and comfort. The special form of the arch makes the standard interior more original and expressive.

Psychologists note that the soft, smooth lines of the arched opening have a positive effect on a person’s emotional state. Moreover, such products are ready to cheer up, relieve tension and, in certain cases, relax.

The main difference between doors mounted in an arched opening is a semicircle on top of the structure. Experts note that in addition to aesthetic indicators, such doors do not have any distinctive features from the operational side.

Also, when choosing the above models, you should not count on anything extraordinary from a technical point of view.

Another feature that should be noted - a visual increase in the height of the ceiling. But this technique works only if the cloths are painted in light colors. Otherwise, the arch will only emphasize the height of the room. Due to the play of light and shadow, the masters from the sphere of interior design create a stylish and fashionable design in the room.

The cost of products of the above type above the standard rectangular doors. Consider this option when choosing a product for your home.

Models and types

The entrances of the semicircular shape for a visual increase in space were used even in ancient times. Modern buyers also make a choice in favor of arched door panels.

Such products are divided into two types in terms of placement:

  • Interior for indoor installation.
  • Entrance for placement at the entrance to the building.

The first option can be decorated with inserts of transparent or colored glass. It should be noted that the standard height of the canvases is about two meters, which makes them an excellent solution for tall people.

In turn, interior positions are divided into the following types:

  • Pointy. Products of this type are a Gothic modification of widely known arched forms. The main distinctive feature of such models is in the form of an aperture, which consists of two arcs, which are sharply interconnected.
  • Semi-circular. The most common type. The arch is made in a standard semi-circular shape.
  • Moorish (horseshoe). According to external signs, this species resembles a horseshoe. The choice of customers offer bladed, pointed or oblong-oval position. Such models are perfect for ethnic stylistics.

From the point of view of the structure of the construction of the canvas are distinguished:

  • Single doors. Doors with only one movable leaf.If you choose the right shape and dimensions of the product, the canvas will become an expressive element of the interior. Fittings, doorframes, etc. should fit perfectly under the door. Single door models are ideal if the opening width is up to 980 millimeters.
  • Bicuspid. At such models should pay attention if the size of the doorway is 1300 millimeters. If desired, the customer can enlarge the opening to install the canvas. As a rule, models of this type are larger in size than single-leaf ones. These doors will be an expressive and colorful addition to the spacious rooms.

By the type of opening the door there are sliding and swing. The second type is widely known and is often found in rooms of various types. Products of this type open in one side, in or out.

What swinging a sliding position, here is not so simple. Many experts discuss the topic: whether the arched doors can be sliding. Oddly enough, but the answers and "yes" and "no" are quite appropriate here.

It is worth noting that for fastening the sash to the top rail you need a straight, flat end. Arched form in this case will not work.


The choice of construction material is very important. It depends not only on the appearance of the door, but also on its durability, reliability and other operational characteristics.
