Why Is Fluted Glass So Popular?
Its aesthetic and practical functions are both reasons as to why fluted glass is so popular amongst architects and interior designers.
If you want to make a dark room feel lighter, fluted glass will do the trick. Its translucency lets natural light in as a warm glow rather than a harsh glare.
For a slight element of privacy, the vertical grooves of fluted glass help partially conceal things hidden behind it. For this reason, this material would be great as a shower screen, or an office and bedroom divider.
