Reeded Glass: An Exclusive Unique Range from KP Glass & Glazing

Reeded glass is a unique type of decorative glass that offers both style and functionality. It is characterised by its distinctive textured appearance, created by the regular, parallel ridges that run across its surface. Reeded glass is highly versatile and can be used in a variety of architectural and interior design applications, from doors and windows to partitions and shower screens.

At KPglazing, we are proud to be the only provider in the UK offering six variations of reeded glass, within our custom glass range, each unique in its appearance. In this article, we will explore the benefits of reeded glass, the options available, and why you should choose KPglazing for all your reeded glass needs.

What is Reeded Glass and Why is it Popular Again?

Reeded glass is a type of decorative glass that is manufactured by passing a sheet of molten glass between rollers that have parallel ridges or reeds. As the glass passes between the rollers, the reeds create an embossed pattern on one side of the glass while leaving the other side smooth. This process gives reeded glass its distinctive texture and appearance.

Reeded glass is available in a range of patterns and designs, with varying depths and widths of the reeds. The pattern can range from a subtle texture to a more pronounced ribbed effect, depending on the desired level of privacy and light transmission.

Reeded glass is a popular choice in both residential and commercial architecture, as it adds visual interest and texture to a space while still allowing natural light to pass through. In the following section, we will discuss the benefits of using reeded glass in architectural and interior design projects.

Reeded glass has been around for over a century and was once a popular choice for both residential and commercial spaces. However, as design trends changed, it fell out of favour and was replaced by other types of glass. In recent years, however, reeded glass has made a comeback in modern architecture and interior design.

One reason for this is its unique texture, which creates a sense of privacy and diffuses light in a subtle and elegant way. Additionally, the variety of patterns and designs available make it a versatile choice for a range of applications.

Moreover, reeded glass is an eco-friendly option, as it is made using a combination of natural and recycled materials, making it an excellent choice for those looking to reduce their environmental footprint.

Benefits of Reeded Glass

Reeded glass has several benefits that make it a popular choice for both residential and commercial applications. Here are some of the key benefits of using reeded glass in architecture and interior design:


One of the main benefits of reeded glass is that it provides privacy while still allowing light to pass through. The textured surface of the glass obscures the view, making it an excellent choice for spaces where privacy is important, such as bathrooms, bedrooms, and offices.

Light diffusion:

Reeded glass diffuses light, creating a soft and subtle glow that can help to create a warm and inviting atmosphere. The texture of the glass breaks up the light, creating a pattern of light and shadow that can add visual interest to any space.


Reeded glass has a unique and distinctive texture that can add visual interest to any design scheme. It can be used to create a statement piece or as a subtle backdrop to other design elements.

Real-life examples of where reeded glass has been used effectively include shower enclosures, room dividers, cabinet doors, and decorative accents. Its popularity has increased in recent years as designers and architects have rediscovered its unique qualities and versatility.
