frosted glass pantry door--which side is out?
« on: 17 Oct 2018, 05:54 pm »
I have installers scheduled to install a frosted-glass pantry door today.  Store says smooth side should face out. That seemed logical to me but now that I have the door on site I think that reflects overhead lights too much and might be unattractive.

I get that the side that needs cleaned the most should face out but I am not worried about ease of cleaning.  I am concerned about aesthetics since that is the only reason I am replacing the existing door.  Door is 36" wide so it dominates the corner where it forms the third side of a triangle. It faces the room at a 45-degree angle and is very visible from the entire great room. 

I also read somewhere that the frosted side should face the lighting source to scatter it more and keep items behind the door hidden better.

Any experience?  Thanks for any help.

The frosted side will be harder to clean. I'd put it in. Someone will have to clean it, eventually.

We  have frosted glass pantry doors, the smooth side faces out and the rough side in!

Put it how you want it. Seems easy enough to figure out. :duh:
