Many types of glasses recommended for homes are following:  

    • Obscure Glass. 
    • Tinted Glass 
    • Tempered Glass 
    • Laminated Glass 
    • Stained Glass 
  • OBSCURE GLASS:  

This type of glass provides you privacy but allows abundant light to enter the room. This Glass has many varieties such as :  

  • TINTED GLASS:  

Tinted glass provides additional shading against direct sunlight and warm conditions. This Glass also has many varieties such as :  

  • TEMPERED GLASS:  

Tempered Glass is extremely strong and often used for its safety features. This is not extra strong but if it breaks, it will break into small pieces like stone. This Glass is ideal for reducing the chance of injury in the event of breakage.  

  • LAMINATED GLASS:  

This Glass is best for reducing noise. It also resists ultraviolet rays, providing the highest degree of protection from sun rays to your home furnishings.  

  • STAINED GLASS  

It is a colorful Glass used to create a dramatic effect in every room of your home.  
However, stained glass windows have many other useful advantages.  
Stained glass windows reduce the intensity of the sun rays and protect your furniture, carpets, and precious woods from long-term sun damage. It will also give you just the right amount of sunlight and privacy.

Use plain glasses if you need sunlight or black one if you do not want or you can use mirror finish if advised by your vastu expert.
You can use toughened glass if suggested by your engineer.
You can use security glass if you have bigger windows and doesn't have railings on it for security reasons.
