Satin glass – sometimes called frosted glass – is a smooth, translucent glass which is often used in interiors to provide an elegant, modern finish in a room and create some privacy without blocking the flow of light around the area. Chemically treated on one side to create a smooth, silky satin finish, frosted glass is very popular in any application where the full clarity of untreated glass isn’t wanted – in doors, shower screens, bathroom windows, cupboard doors, meeting rooms and any others you can think of!
The reasons for the surge in demand for satin glass are many and various, but the most prominentamong them include:
Warmth and Elegance
The smooth finish of frosted glass creates a warmer visual effect than that seen in glossy glass products, but doesn’t restrict the flow of light around the room, leading to a modern, light appearance. Perfect for creating a modern aesthetic in a home or office, satin glass diffuses the light to create a cosy, private feel, but doesn’t compromise on appearance or lighting.
As mentioned above, the privacy provided by satin glass is a key attribute of this material, and, unlike a wall, screen or door, frosted glass does not restrict light or block it out, keeping your room well-lit and allowing plenty of natural light from windows to pass through.
While glossy-finished glass marks extremely easily, satin glass’ smooth finish doesn’t show fingerprints, marks and other grime as easily. Where it does mark, frosted glass will wipe clean with minimal effort – but be careful not to burnish it by over-cleaning it, or the translucent surface may be polished off and become transparent, ruining the effect!
