Having a home with plenty of windows is fantastic–windows let in light and air and make your home look more spacious. However, in the evening hours when your home is brightly lit, having many windows can make your home feel too exposed. While most people opt for curtains and blinds, several custom glass options can enhance privacy by design.
In this blog post, Springfield Glass Company looks at three glass types that enhance privacy without sacrificing style.
Frosted glass is glass treated to produce a rougher surface, creating a more rugged and pitted texture. Frosted glass creates a warm, elegant look and can be used in windows, doors, or bathroom glass. The rough surface of frosted glass blurs objects behind it, enhancing privacy while still letting in plenty of light. Frosted glass has the added benefit of obscuring fingerprints and streaks and is easy to clean.
Rain glass is treated to produce a vertical line pattern similar to rain streaking down a window. It has a beautiful, dreamy appearance and can add modern style to any room. Rain glass can be used on windows, doors, and bathrooms and provides the same blurring, privacy-enhancing effect as frosted glass. Rain glass can vary in pattern and style and is a versatile option for both privacy and style.
Tinted glass has been darkened by adding small amounts of metal oxide to it. The tinted glass comes in different colors and tones, including bronze, grey, or black. Most people think of cars when they think of tinted glass, but tinted glass is also used on commercial and residential windows to add privacy and create a modern, stylish look.
