Ultimate Guide: Frosted Glass vs. Clear Glass

Frosted glass, also referred to as privacy glass, is the perfect way to make your high-traffic restroom a bit more functional. While your master bathroom may have shower enclosures made completely of beautiful clear glass, a bathroom shared by siblings and guests might need more privacy. 

If you’ve ever considered using frosted glass in your home or are looking for ways to make your bathroom more functional, we’ve got you covered. Here is everything you need to know about using privacy glass in your home!

How is Frosted Glass Made?

Frosted glass is created by acid etching or sandblasting clear glass. The results of this process are stunning. Frosted glass not only offers privacy, it incorporates texture and style. This type of glass is remarkable in that it adapts to your personal style and complement other accents in your bathroom.

Is Frosted Glass Better for Shower Enclosures?

It can be challenging when siblings share a bathroom. With a frosted glass shower enclosure, this critical space becomes more functional when they are getting ready for school. One child can use the shower, while the other brushes their teeth.

What Other Ways Can I Use Frosted Glass in the Bathroom?

Aside from shower enclosures, privacy glass can serve multiple functions in your bathroom. One emerging trend is to partition off the toilet with a divider or curtain. You can take it one step further and create a private toilet space with a half-wall of frosted glass! This look will blend seamlessly with your shower and block the toilet from sight, for added privacy.

When is Utilizing Frosted Glass Too Much?

Never. Keep the frosted look rolling and apply it to your organization schemes! Frosted glass shelves will tie in with your bathroom, and help keep everything organized. In shared bathrooms, easily accessing toiletries and towels can add even more functionality by utilizing open glass shelving systems.
