Frosted Glass

Choose Your Frosted Glass Shape

Frosted Glass is an opaque, aesthetically attractive glass type. Shading is applied either in full or a design, which allows in light, but blurs the shape of items behind the glass pane. This trendy glass produces a smooth and sweet white hue to the glass surface, reflectively emitting a soft light. It also is perfect for adding privacy in shower areas. With Frosted Glass, only one side of the glass gets Frosted, but there are two ways to make Frosted Glass: Acid-Etching and Sand-Blasting.

Acid-Etched Frosted Glass is created with the use of abrasives (acid treatment) to create the signature Frosted Glass look. On the other hand, Sandblasted Frosted Glass is created with a high speed machine that bombards the glass panel with sand, walnut husks or other materials.

Which one is better? That depends on your end goal. Acid-etched Frosted Glass produces a “true” frosted look and is more uniform and smoother to the touch.

Sandblasted Frosted glass offers versatility in creating design effects. First, one can choose a level of glass opaqueness from light, medium, or heavy. Also, sandblasting makes it possible to "frost" sections of a glass pane, such as creating privacy strips or patterns. This gives more control during the frosting process, and a more customizable design.

The glass arrived on time, could not have been more convenient to purchase and the quality is fantastic. My only gripe is that the frosting is a bit too subtle. We were hoping for a more opaque look.

I purchased a frosted custom cut table top for a cabinet in my bathroom that had a stained and scratched top. It looks like I bought a brand new piece! Custom ordering was easy and the glasstop arrived in 4 days in perfect condition.

4 star Opaque glass for bottom of curio cabinet

This company is a Godsend! We live in a rural location, and running in to a location in town so I could order a glass shelf that broke in our move would have been a real pain. But this is the best way to get what you need; the prices are great, the wait time is about the same as other options, and the convenience is wonderful! We ordered an opaque glass which I wish would have been MORE opaque, it's barely frosted and almost see-through, but it covers the lights in the bottom of the curio and once all the display items are on the shelves it's ok. The measurements were cut exactly as specified. I'm going to keep this name in a safe place for when I once again need a custom glass made.

5 star Perfect Order!

I needed a custom piece of frosted glass to put in a bathroom door (replacing an existing window). I found your site and was able to specify everything from size to thickness to corners and even get it tempered. To top it off shipping was free. I got it very quickly and it was shipped and packed super super well. Very happy with it. Thank you very much!

I've purchased from Dulles Glass before. This time I ordered what most people don't. It was a tempered window, frosted that was installed in our home master bathroom. It was cut beautifully, exactly to size and slipped right in without problems. In addition, I also ordered the 1/2 inch metal channel that fit the 1/2 inch window. It weighs more than a couch but looks beautiful and I think it will last forever. I will continue to purchase products from this company always. They place the customer first always which is the way it should be. Very satisfied. With Respect, Dr Guerra Laredo, Texas 78041
