The arch is a very common shape in architecture, in both modern and ancient times. The Romans didn’t invent the arch, but they were the visionaries who perfected its use in buildings, windows and doors. The shape is convenient because if offers both an attractive appearance and more stability than one might find with a square shape.
Many homeowners choose the traditional arch window for their home design because of interesting aesthetic it lends to the decor of any room. Because arch windows come in many different shapes and sizes, they allow for a lot of creativity. A traditional arch window can be added above a door, over a bathtub or shower, or anywhere else a homeowner desires to bring in more light and add visual impact to the room.
