A popular reflex would be to match the arched doorway with arched windows. You could do that if you prefer a more classical and matching interior design but it’s not the only option. You could also explore other types of designs and other shapes. What’s very beautiful about arched doorways is that you can use them on ling hallways if you have more than one door or arch and they will create a very nice visual effect.

It’s difficult to find a door that matches an arched doorway. You could have an arched door but you could also have a regular one, in which case the upper portion will remain exposed. It’s not a perfect combination if you prefer total privacy so it’s not that suitable for bedrooms. To make the arched doorway better integrate into the décor, you can match it with other elements. It could be an arched window, an arched headboard or a fireplace.
