Erm... pointed arches? Is this an oxymoron? No, pointed arches are more commonly known as gothic arches. This nickname is derived from the arch's point at the apex.
Arched openings have been giving home builders and homeowners the opportunity to create elegance in their homes for centuries. Pointed arch openings provide a specific type of gothic elegance that is rarely seen in today’s homes. Gothic arches, as they’re more often called, are one of our many specialties. Today we’re going to go over some of the great ways to use pointed arches.
Interior Gothic Pointed Arches
A gothic pointed arch opening makes the opening appear taller than it actually is. The center point is used primarily as a decorative accent, drawing the eyes up to a desired focal point. You can order your gothic arches that are custom made to your measurements.
Exterior Gothic Pointed Arches
Carry the gothic pointed arch theme outside your home as well. This is an incredible way to dress up and add to your home's elevation. We've seen them in entryways, inset niches, and surrounding patios.
Gothic Pointed Arch Pass-Through and Niches
Interior cutouts that allow a pass-through from one room to another, don’t have to be boring rectangles. Make the cutout from the kitchen to the living room in the shape of a gothic arch and look at how it changes the overall aesthetic for both rooms. Niches can also greatly benefit from this gorgeous design.
