Patterned and Frosted Glass: The Big Comeback

Long gone are the days of dull, frosted floral patterns strewn across glass on ageing doors.

With modern day frosted and patterned glass, there’s a whole world of possibilities to add light, texture and visual interest into your surroundings, while maintaining your own contemporary style.

If you’re looking for a way to give your home a little something-something, then patterned and frosted glass is going to play a pivotal role in your design. There are many reasons why everyone’s talking about it.

Here are a few:

1/ It’s about privacy

Patterned and frosted glass helps create areas of privacy, while looking well-considered both from the outside looking in and vice-versa. It’s an obvious reason, but a tested and true one. For example, a translucent glass shower screen, like one made with ScalaTexture™ glass adds a functional layer of style, and adds subtle boundaries for separation.

2/ It’s about aesthetics

A cupboard door inset with frosted glass, or a beautifully designed cabinet door of patterned glass can be very visually pleasing, creating a standout focal point. It can also help tie various design elements together to produce a streamlined aesthetic in your home that’s welcoming as well as calming.

3/ It’s about welcoming natural light

At Viridian, we’re strong believers in the power that natural light can have on your living spaces, so this reason is a personal favourite. Think about replacing a solid wall with our ScalaMirage™ glass, and you’ll see what we mean. Rather than creating harsh partitions, it helps open up your spaces to bring in plenty of light and make your rooms look bigger.

4/ It’s about displaying without giving away too much

The subtle art of displaying personal belongings in an eclectic way is certainly having its moment in the spotlight design-wise, and rightfully so. Your cherished possessions are a glimpse into who you are, and a well-placed pane of patterned glass can help you showcase these items, perhaps in a cabinet, while still having all of them put away and organised. It’s all about putting on a show, without actually putting on a show.
