Frosted glass is cloudy or milky in color and hides your view from inside or outside. It is manufactured by taking ordinary glass and creating tiny marks on its surface by striking it at high velocity — or by etching the surface with acid, resulting in translucency. Frosted glass is ideal for bathrooms windows and shower doors because it allows in natural light into the room.
Textured glass is glass manufactured with random bumps and lumps on the surface. It is sometimes frosted — but its most telling feature is the way it distorts the view — so images and objects are not clearly visible. Textured glass is also commonly used in shower doors, as it provides more privacy to the bather than clear glass. You can also use textured glass for decorating other areas in your home.

Tempered glass is about four times stronger than “ordinary,” or annealed, glass. And unlike annealed glass, which can shatter into jagged shards when broken,tempered glass fractures into small, relatively harmless pieces. As a result,tempered glass is used in those environments where human safety is an issue.
Tinted glass allows you to have an outside view but prevents people from seeing what is inside. The benefits of installing tinted glass in your home or office include its cost effectiveness in terms of energy costs, enhanced security and privacy and protection from ultra violet rays. Having tinted glass windows in your home also protects the interior furnishings.
Reflective glass also allows you to see what is outside very clearly, but it does not allow those outside to see in. It is an excellent choice if you are mindful about privacy. Reflective glass is an ordinary glass covered with a special metallic coating for reducing solar heat which also produces a mirror effect.
