What is back painted glass and how can it be used inside and outside the building? Back Painted Glass is a glass that was painted on the back side. This is a very popular solution for interior and exterior design because it looks very stylish and helps to visually expand the space. After painting the back side, the front side is no longer translucent but has a solid color. Such a creative idea is widely used in residential and commercial buildings.
Glass has always been a popular design solution, however, sometimes transparent walls are not appropriate, whether it’s in the house or office. Back painted glass is an amazing solution if you don’t want to be surrounded by concrete walls whether they are painted or have wallpapers. A nicely chosen color or a variety of colors applied on the glass makes individual rooms private, still modern, sleek and unique.

How is Back Painted Glass Made?
The process of making back painted glass requires skills and special equipment. We start with a sheet of glass that has been cut to the customer’s requirements. Our professional glaziers make sure that the glass is absolutely clean because even a little bit of debris will become embedded in the paint and spoil the perfect sleek look. Then we tape off the edges of the glass to not let paint stick to the front side of the glass. Once preparation is completed, we move to painting the glass. The first thing that we do we put the glass flat. Then we apply the paint to the glass, usually in multiple layers. The last step is transferring the painted glass to a special oven and leave it there until paint gets properly stuck to one side of the glass.
