There are natural arches like this one from the National Park in Utah

There are ancient and historical arches like these Oman Mosque Marble Arches

Designers and architects also use nature and history to bring or showcase the most exquisite elements to an interior. Arches represent a very architectural home attribute that brings elegance, grandeur and really  uniqueness to a space. There are many styles of arches. They are used in corridors, door entrances and even windows.

Here are some interesting styles and shapes that I trust you will enjoy as much as I do.

These window arches are beautifully dressed with a heavy silky drapes, creating a very luxurious dining room look.

This arch opens on a very intimate little dining room. So pretty!

Love this Moroccan window arch style. It is definitely a view on an paradisiac space. A 5 star style bathroom!

A continuity of small door arches are present throughout the whole home here. This is a beautiful Spanish style home.

This master bedroom is filled with beautiful English antiques and breezy, sunny fabrics. The arched doors were added to give easy access to the outdoors. This property is the historical Maddox House in Barbados. Photo via Cote de Texas

Very beautiful moldings dresses up these room entrances giving them a very elegant classic look. Wouldn't you want the same treatment applied to your home doors?
