The right doors are a key element in achieving continuity in your home’s design style, and a beautiful arched wood door may be exactly the right thing to accentuate your style. Arched doors are a defining feature of Tuscan, Mediterranean, French Country, and Mission Revival architecture—the Old World styles that incorporate stone, stucco, tile, terra cotta, and wrought iron materials and elements.
The top of a True Arch door forms a perfect 180-degree radius, and the door is fitted into a corresponding arched frame.
When True Arch doors are made in a pair, the arc extends across both doors. A pair of arched doors can be particularly effective in an entry system by establishing a memorable first impression, or may create drama and elegance within an interior space.
A True Arch effect can also be achieved with a Top Rail True Arch door. While the top of the door is flat, fitting into a square opening, the bottom portion of the top rail forms the 180-degree radius.
Top Rail True Arch doors are also available as pairs, and are effective in creating significance in both interior and exterior settings.
Similar to the True Arch, a Flat Arch door’s top incorporates an arch that is less than a semi circle (sometimes referred to as a Segmental Arch). Like the True Arch, a Flat Arch door’s top may be arched, or flat with the arch formed on the bottom of the door’s top rail. Flat Arch doors are a popular choice in many design motifs, especially French Country and Rustic.
