Many people don’t seem to realize the numerous ways frosted glass can be used within their homes, aside from the occasional glass showers. In addition to that folly, many people aren’t aware that creating frosted glass is an effect that they can do themselves. Traditionally, frosted glass was made with sandblasters to rough up and distort the surface of glass, but nowadays there are sprays and films that can be purchased from craft stores that can create the same appearance at a much cheaper price. Here are three different reasons to consider doing a few frosted glass DIYs within your home.
There is nothing that can compete with natural light, which is why the more windows the better. But at the same time, your home is also supposed to be a place of privacy and some windows can be a bit too revealing and at the same time all do not fair well with curtains or blinds. One of the more obvious places that this issue can arise is bathrooms, but some windowed doors and accent windows may fall into this category as well, ESPECIALLY if those windows are nontraditional shapes that don’t fit curtains. Frosted glass can give you privacy without the sacrifice of light.
Frosted glass can be used to add design to a room as well. The Frosted film can be cut into shape or forms that match the room’s themes, or stencils can be used with spray frosting to give a subtle bit of character to space. Another perk of using frosted glass in your decor is that it can be removed later, meaning you are not committed to any design you use and can be changed if you choose to redecorate.
As mentioned before, frosted glass allows for natural lighting in your home but it can also be used to manipulate it as well. Frosted glass diffuses light that passes through it, creating a softer form of illumination that is more gentle for those who are photosensitive . This effect applies to both natural and artificial lighting. Colored frosting is also available, which can be used to add the glow of your favorite hue to a room as well. This can be ideal for creating rooms with warm or cool tones to match your decor.
