Frosted glass is a perfect alternative for those people who want to combine beauty, modernity and functionality for the decoration of their homes and apartments. With this type of glass, it is possible to make divisions between rooms, without giving up the aesthetics, natural light and privacy.
In addition, blasted glass can be used in different ways, according to the personality, style and personal taste of each person. In this text, we will explain better what frosted glass is, how the process that gives rise to it is, how and where to use it and what its average value is. We are also going to talk about how to make sure that the glass lasts a long time without losing its characteristics.
What is Frosted Glass?

Sandblasted glass is a type of glass that undergoes a process that leaves it with a matte and opaque effect. In addition, depending on its level of application, sandblasting creates a barrier in the glass, which prevents you from seeing what is inside the room or furniture where it is installed, without losing the passage of light.
Glass blasting is a technique that throws sand at high speed over a clear glass, creating a blasted surface. This new surface allows light to enter through the glass, even though it is opaque.
Therefore, it is widely used in home environments that require privacy, such as doors, showers, closet doors, among others. It is also widely used in corporate environments, as a partition between rooms.
In addition to this technique made at the factory, there is also the possibility of applying a film over a common glass, bringing the same blasted effect to it. This is a cheaper option. With the adhesive, it is even possible to customize the glass, make different designs, shapes and even company logos.
The sandblasted effect can have different colors and the main ones are:
Green frosted glass
This type of glass is widely used in bathrooms and is perfect for people who want to diversify their surroundings but still remain lightly decorated.
White frosted glass
The most common color of this type of glass, it is widely used in partitions and in corporate environments.
Black sandblasted glass (smoked)
This is already a perfect option for people who want a more sophisticated and neutral decor.
Where to use this type of glass
One of the advantages of this type of glass is its versatility. It works in different environments and in different ways. In addition to what we talked about, blasted glass can be used both in corporate environments and in homes and it works very well in projects, even helping in the decoration.
Now let’s look at some suggestions for places where this type of glass can be used.
Frosted glass windows and doors
As we said at the beginning of the text, sandblasted glass is the ideal alternative for people looking for privacy, but at the same time not wanting to lose light or the aesthetic concept of their decoration.
Thus, it proves to be perfect to be used as a room divider, both in houses and residential apartments, as well as in companies and corporate spaces. In fact, due to its beauty, elegance and neutrality, frosted glass is perfect for use in companies.

It is possible to use the sandblasting technique, especially the one made with adhesive, on decorative objects. You can use it on bottles, glass vases, mirrors and any other object or furniture that has glass details.
How much is it?
The value of blasted glass can vary, according to the thickness of the glass that will receive the technique and the region where it is made. If the blasting was carried out on tempered glass, for example, the value could reach R$1000 per square meter.
As mentioned above, an option that is more accessible is the application of a film that imitates the effect carried out in the factory. You can find film options worth R$ 11.90, with a size of 100cm x 0.50cm.
What precautions to take with this glass
Caring for frosted glass is not difficult and, if maintained properly, it can last for many years.
Cleaning should be done with a mixture of water and alcohol and a clean cloth. Abrasive substances such as: ammonia, bleach, soap powder and other products that may stain the surface must not be used.
It is noteworthy that the blasting done on the glass does not fade naturally. In other words, if this happens, it will be caused by the use of abrasive products.
