Why Do You Need a Kitchen Arch Design?

Arches have been a hot topic in interior design lately, making it a coveted element in most homes. In fact, arches of different styles and designs can be used for both aesthetic and functional purposes. An arch draws the eye upwards, visually elongating the room and adding height to your ceiling.

This is especially handy to have in a space like your kitchen, owing to how small most HDB kitchens can be. By using arches, you can visually lengthen the room and create the illusion of a larger space. So, if you have a cramped kitchen that’s in need of a facelift, a modern kitchen arch design can be a great solution.

What Are Some of the Latest Kitchen Arch Ideas to Try Out?

From modern to vintage, there are a variety of kitchen arch design ideas that can suit every space. Let’s take a look at some popular options, as well as how you can incorporate them into your kitchen.

1. Ceiling Arch

An arched or vaulted ceiling can help add depth and dimension to your kitchen

Starting from the very top, we have a modern kitchen arch design that’s perfect for your ceiling. As arches help in creating the look of a higher ceiling, consider round arches for your false ceiling design. Use multiple arches across the width of your room to add more depth and dimension.

2. Arched Kitchen Windows

Before you change the windows in your kitchen, be sure to have the necessary permits from the HDB to stay within regulations

There are multiple ways to play around with arches. One such way is to introduce them into other elements, like your windows. Consider going for an arch design to decorate your window frames or to soften angular lines in your kitchen.

3. POP Kitchen Arch Design

If intricate designs are what you’re looking for, POP is a malleable material that can detail your arch design and give your kitchen a makeover

POP, or Plaster of Paris, is a relatively flexible material that can be used to create different designs and patterns. You can use it to mould arches into your ceiling to create a unique, modern look. If you have a bigger space, consider layering your kitchen in POP arch designs to create a focal point.

4. Arched Wall Recesses

You can use recessed wall arches as a decorative element, or as a storage area by adding shelving or cabinet doors

If you already have existing wall recesses in your kitchen, you might want to consider turning them into arches. Besides being a great decorative element, they can also be used as niche storage spaces with the help of shelves or cabinets.

5. Stone Arch Design

Use 3D wallpaper to decorate your kitchen arch design, as a cost-effective alternative to stone cladding your kitchen walls

Stone is a great element when it comes to keeping your interiors cool in Singapore summers! And we’re here to tell you that even a modern kitchen arch design can rock a stone-based build.

You can either outline your arch-shaped kitchen entryway with stone, or you can go the whole nine yards and do up your entire kitchen wall in stone. On the other hand, a more cost-effective hack can be to use stone-patterned wallpaper.

6. Pass-Through Kitchen Arch

A pass-through window can double as a breakfast bar by adding a few stools on the other side

Don’t have an open layout, but you still want easy access to your kitchen from your dining or living room? Let us introduce you to the pass-through window for kitchens.

This window sits on the wall between your kitchen and common areas, allowing you to easily access food and other items without having to go all the way into the kitchen. You can decorate this opening with an arch design to add some character to the space.

7. Kitchen Backsplash Arch Design

Bricks are a multifaceted decor element to use if you want to give your space a rustic feel

There are different ways you can add a pass-through window to your kitchen. You can either have a large opening that can be converted into a breakfast nook (as we saw in the previous picture), or you can make a smaller window just to open the space up.

In fact, you can even experiment with some kitchen backsplash ideas to factor in an arch. How? By using a similar material or pattern for your backsplash! For instance, if you’re using tiles or bricks for your kitchen backsplash, consider outlining the arched window with the same tiles to create continuity in design.

8. Cathedral-Style Arch Design

A gabled ceiling paired with an arched window is a sure-fire way to create a subtle cathedral-like aesthetic in your kitchen

Just as there are many ways to use an arch design in your kitchen, there are many types of arches to choose from as well. If you happen to have a skylight in your kitchen, this arch design can work wonders in your space.

Think of cathedral ceilings and the pointed tip they form at the top. You can get the same look by pairing an arch with a gabled ceiling (a pointed, triangular ceiling). However, this might not work well in smaller kitchens as it may make your space look narrower than it is.

9. D-Shaped Kitchen Arch

This type of kitchen arch design allows for easy conversation between the kitchen and living room, while still keeping both spaces separate

A D-shaped kitchen arch is nothing but a wide arch that covers a larger area. The curve resembles a D, hence the name. This type of kitchen arch design can suit large pass-through windows while simultaneously softening the inner edges of the wall.

10. Circular Kitchen Arch Design

A circular kitchen entrance can help you maintain an open layout while still giving each room its own distinct space

Curves are a relatively new trend taking the interior design space by storm. While they are more commonly spotted in most modern furniture designs, you can also bring these curves to your kitchen with the help of a circular kitchen arch design.

If you want your home to have an open layout but still want to give your kitchen its own distinct space, this type of arch design is for you. You can construct this arch by the entryway of your kitchen and allow it to speak for itself!

11. Mixed Arch Design

Use multiple arches in different areas of your kitchen as decorative elements in the space

How many arches is too many arches? If you get the balance right, there’s no fixed answer! You can use a mix of kitchen arch designs to curate a modern and unique space. How? By using them as accents.

Arches have rounded edges, helping you bring a sense of softness to a space. Moreover, they envelop the space they occupy, drawing the eye directly towards them. You can use arches in your entryway, in a cosy cooking niche, and as a statement wall shelf.

12. Open Layout Kitchen Arch

A subtle arch can help frame your kitchen entrance without taking the focus away from your open layout

Besides a circular kitchen arch design, you can also consider a wide arch to preserve an open floor plan. This type of arch can subtly frame the space without cramping the entrance, creating an open and airy layout.
