Types of frosted glass:

Acid etched glass allows for complex, intricate patterns to be etched into the surface while leaving other areas transparent.

Sandblasted glass has a uniform opaque appearance, due to the even roughening of clear sheet glass. This process allows the window to still admit light while blurring visibility.

Adhesive vinyl decals can be used to create any combination of full-color and clear glass images surrounded by opaque vinyl, mimicking the frosted glass effect without permanently altering the surface.

Frosted Glass Frequently Asked (FAQ)

If you are unsure whether the frosted glass is right for your business, you are in the perfect place. We’ll answer all of your burning questions about frosted glass and more! 
Let’s start with some basics. 
What is Frosted Glass?
Frosted glass is an opaque or semi-opaque material. It allows only a limited amount of light to pass through but keeps the inside and outside view completely vague. As the name suggests, frosted glass has a frosty or cloudy appearance. 
What is the Importance of Frosted Glass?
One of the most important reasons for using frosted glass in your business or office is to ensure privacy. The frosty appearance will prevent anyone from seeing into your windows or private areas such as offices or conference rooms. Some business owners also use frosty glass to enhance the overall aesthetics of the office as well. 
Where Can I Use Frosted Glass?
You can use frosted glass in many different places. It all depends on your office, lease, and the goals you wish to achieve through your design. Generally speaking, offices and conference rooms are considered ideal for frosted glass. 
Frosted glass windows completely eliminate the need to install blinds or curtains. This can not only help save money but also prevent your office from heating up during the hot morning or afternoon sun.
Other than the conference room and individual offices, it is also possible to use frosted glass in other areas such as the front reception desk, exterior windows, or internal glass partitions. Ultimately, installing frosted glass will help you achieve a clean, professional, and minimalistic style for your business.
Even if you think that you don't need frosty glass, you can always use it to accentuate the overall interior design. AlphaGraphics of Alexandria and Arlington can help you create customized frosty glass for cabinet doors, closet door panels, and many other design components. 
Who Should Install Frosted Glass?
It is important to rely on professional, experienced, and well-trained experts to install frosted glass windows. Relying on professional services becomes even more critical when you require customization services. 
If you don't know any contractors, you should ask for references from friends, family, or online forums. Generally, finding a reliable frosted glass contractor should not be a challenge, as you can find the necessary information from a few Google searches as well.
