The elevation of the doorway start with calculating the size of the future arch. To do this, check above the door the height of the arch and add 5 cm So you will get the height of the arched opening.
Then enjoy a selection of source materials for the manufacture of the arch. This can be drywall, wood or polystyrene. The most reliable and versatile building material, widely used for interior decoration works, is the drywall.
Preparing the opening and buying the necessary materials, proceed directly to the manufacture of the arch. Attach the drive rails, which will keep the arch to the doorway. Then measure the width of the opening and the distance from the ceiling to the bottom of the horizontal rail.
The obtained data transfer to the sheet of drywall. The radius of the arch, take half the width of the opening. Draw a circle for the future of the arches with a homemade compass, which is a normal wooden rail with a nail at one end. Thus you will receive the arch. Cut it from a sheet of drywall with a jigsaw. By the same principle make a second arch.
Install arched workpieces on horizontal and vertical guides on either side of the opening using screws. Now proceed to the construction of slopes. To do this, take the guide profile and attach it to the inner side of the sheet of drywall around the circumference. Do the same on the other side of the arch. Ensure that the guides on the circumference of the match.
Next, connect the two halves of the arch with a small profile cut, paste, which must be already installed rails.
Only good putty and carefully paint the archway. The angles of slope decorated with special arched corners. They will protect your new arch from various injuries.
