Material for making arches and decorating them

When choosing the style of the arch is worth considering that some of the elements of decoration in the kitchen and adjacent rooms during the renovation will change. Therefore, it is better to make the arch universal, or you will have to change the finishing of the arch itself during the next repair.
The arches themselves look very stylish, but if you add them with spotlights, they become easier.
It is worthwhile to foresee mounts for curtains in the archway, as sometimes you may need to isolate rooms from each other. Cotton curtains are well suited for this purpose.
