If you would like ultimate privacy and allow maximum light into your bedroom consider frosted glass that has been etched on both sides of the glass panel. This toughened piece of glass has various shaped ferns detailed on the inside of the room and the other side of the glass surface etched with a matte sandblasting.
The glass is translucent and allows natural light to pass through the etched (sandblasted) glass and privacy in the bedroom is maintained.
Sandblasted pohutakawa and manuka flower motifs decorate the new double-glazed door and side light glass panels in a recent home renovation.
The floral designs have been repeated and incorporated into the new kitchen design as opening double-glazed skinny windows on either side of the stove cooker.
