For homes and apartments alike, residents always have the same issue. Creating space while keeping the decor beautiful is always a task. One great way to create space in rooms is to use glass etching for partitions. There are so many options to choose from when you decide to place glass partitions throughout your home. From different designs to different types of glass, here’s a little helpful guide to help you choose.

Creating Etched Glass for Partitions

Glass Etching for Partitions

The most common, or best glass for partitions is etched glass. This refers to a process that treats the glass piece, making it sturdy and giving it a frosted appearance. This glass is also known as frosted glass or sandblasted glass. Experts use heat to treat the glass surface, which creates an effect that diffuses transmitted light, reduces glare, and gives the glass an altered appearance.

At More Than Glass, we also use a sealer to make sure that the glass retains its beautiful appearance for years to come. This topcoat covers any irregular surface areas making your glass piece shiny and smooth. It also helps the glass stay resistant to fingerprints and other marks. Our etched glass is easy to maintain and adds an ethereal quality to the room, making it look bigger and brighter.

Where to Use Etched Glass Partitions

One reason that etched glass has become popular over the last 30 years is that it creates the illusion of space, however small your place may be! You can keep it plain or choose from a large selection of designs that will match your decor and personal style. The most popular places to put etched glass include:

  • Doors & sidelites - Using etched glass here keeps the light shining through but reduces the glare or blinding light for a more comfortable living space.
  • Room dividers - Popular for a variety of reasons. Families with children use these to create private spaces. Others use it to separate rooms that are combination living room/dining room for a more beautiful experience.

Other ideas for using etched glass:

  • Privacy panels
  • Bathroom windows
  • Shower doors
  • Decorative panels
  • Carved glass (a three-dimensional sculpted image created by carving or etching a relief design into the surface of glass)
  • Mirrors
  • Cabinet doors
  • Handrails

Your etched glass can be customized to fit any area or design. Whether you want to use etched glass mirrors along your walls to make the room look larger, or you simply want to add some shine to your kitchen detail, an expert glass company can help you bring your dream decor to life.
