Types of home glass features available

When decorating your house, you can play with glass, placing it strategically wherever you want to have as much privacy as you need. Read on to learn about some of the most popular types of glass used in homes today:

Smoked Glass

Smoked glass is more suitable for décor than privacy, because it is not opaque. Alternate with clear glass for an interesting design with a touch of drama.

Frosted Glass

You achieve the frosted look by sandblasting or acid-etching a clear sheet of glass. While it will blur images it also allows light to penetrate. The shape of the blocks or bricks diffuses and scatters the light. Therefore you can ensure privacy by using these bricks.

Colored Glass

Glass can be manufactured in any color. This means it will adapt to the design style of your home. Although it is crystal clear, the color can offer a tinge of privacy but the impact on the design can be tremendous.
