Where does frosted glass design work best? | WindowArt

The short answer to the question ‘Where does frosted glass design work best?’ is: Anywhere! Frosted glass design is versatile enough that it complements just about any décor style and can be adapted to suit your personal taste.

Frosted glass design works in areas where you need a little privacy.

It’s wonderful to have big windows or glass sliding doors opening out from your bedroom onto your garden or balcony. However, they can also leave you feeling a little exposed to the outside world. In instances like this, frosted glass design can give you the privacy you need while preserving that beautiful natural light and feeling of openness that makes big windows and glass doors so uplifting and pleasant.

You can control the level of privacy you want by choosing a design that uses just the right amount of frosting. The more privacy you need, the more opacity your frosted glass design should incorporate.

Frosted glass design is useful in areas that are exposed to harsh, direct sunlight.

Frosted glass design cuts out glare and shelters you from the harsh midday heat. This can be a godsend for parts of your house that get a lot of direct sunlight. Instead of cutting out all natural light with curtains or blinds, you can install frosted glass designs on your windows and glass doors so that you still get the benefit of natural light without the painful glare. Because frosted window vinyl slows the transfer of heat through glass, it also acts as an insulator that will shelter you from the intense heat of the midday sun.

Frosted glass design is great for sliding doors, provided that you use window vinyl.

Have you ever unsuspectingly walked smack-bang straight into closed sliding doors? It happens more often than you might think. Frosted glass design is an attractive way to not only transform sliding doors into decorative pieces, but to also make them visible when closed so that people don’t accidentally walk into them.

This can usually only be done with frosted window vinyl, however. This is because sandblasting weakens sliding doors by taking up to 2mm off of the thickness of the glass. Frosted window vinyl, on the other hand, actually strengthens glass by making it shatterproof.

Frosted glass design works well for displaying company branding or advertising.

Shop windows and glass doors provide perfect opportunities for branding and advertising. Use frosted window vinyl – instead of sandblasting – to display your company’s name and logo on your glass surfaces. While sandblasting permanently alters glass, window vinyl can be removed without causing any damage to the glass. This is useful if your shop or office is run from a rented space or if you decide to rebrand in the future.

Frosted window vinyl also allows you to run seasonal or time-sensitive branding or advertising. For instance, you may want to install a Christmas-themed frosted glass design on your shop’s window over the festive season. Once Christmas has passed, the frosted glass design can be easily removed by professionals.
