Arched Cabinets: Why We Love Them And Our Favorite Pieces
Arched cabinets seem to be everywhere these days. From beautiful furniture pieces to custom built-ins, the design world just cannot get enough of the arched detail at the top. Add us to that list because we refuse to stop gravitating towards them!
Today on the blog, we will discuss everything we love about arched cabinets and some of our favorites to help you find the perfect piece for your home.
Arched Cabinets: A Brief History
We promise not to bore you with the complete history behind these beautiful design pieces, but the story behind arches is pretty neat! Before there were arched cabinets and built-ins, this beautiful design started in the 12th century.
The first arch was built as a doorway, then slowly became the framework that built the iconic city of Rome. As more and more people began to love the arched look, it migrated around the entire world!
We have seen arches slowly increase in popularity over the years, making this design a staple in modern houses. While we love the stereotypical rectangle shape, there is just something about the soft edges full of rich history. It make us feel at home!
Arched Cabinets Are For Everyone
Regardless of your design style, we believe an arched cabinet will fit flawlessly somewhere in your home. If we’ve convinced you this is an absolute necessity for your home but cannot seem to find the perfect spot for it- do not get deterred!
There are many different ways to tackle bringing an arched cabinet into your home. The two easiest solutions are: selecting a furniture piece or creating a built-in.
Finding The Perfect Furniture Piece
Depending on what furniture pieces you already have, buying an arched cabinet may be the best option for your home. We love that regardless of your design style, this piece will act as a showstopper in whatever room it’s in.
Now that arched cabinets and interior design go hand-in-hand, there are so many available on the market! It can be difficult to find furniture that is quality made and within your budget, so I have taken away all the guesswork.

Creating An Arched Cabinet Built-In
Built-ins bring the trend of arched cabinets to a whole new level! The contrast between the large size of the built-in itself compared to the soft nature of the arches allows any empty space to feel like a home.
The idea of built-ins may feel like a massive undertaking, either financially or time-wise, but we are here to provide options to make this idea become a reality.
Ways To Create Your Arched Cabinet Built-In:
- Hire a contractor to create a completely custom built-in.
- Use a furniture company to design a semi-custom built-in.
- DIY it yourself.
Building your own arched cabinet built-in is not as impossible as you may think. In fact, we proved this can be done by helping our friends create their own!
Check out our blog post on how to DIY your own built-in cabinets and all the tips we learned along the way!
Regardless of what option you choose, we encourage you to utilize furniture pieces you already have. As was the case in our own built-in journey, a lot of time and money can be saved using standard cabinets as the base of the entire project.
A Conversation Piece No Matter What
Whether you choose to purchase an arched cabinet, create your own built-in, or are simply warming up to the design style of arches- we are thrilled you are giving it a chance!
Arched cabinets are the type of piece that starts conversation no matter where they are placed. There is just something about them that demands to be the center of attention. I promise once you bring an arched cabinet into your home, you won’t look back. We never have!
If you end up getting an arched cabinet of your very own, please let me know either in the comments or over on our Instagram! We can’t wait to see how you style it in your space.
