Translucent frosted glass is the star in much of today's architecture, showing up in multi-million-dollar homes, galleries, and public buildings. But there's something at your local hardware store that can achieve a similar look for a lot less: Corrugated plastic!

Selling in sheets of 8' in length (and even longer!), corrugated plastic can be used for interior partitions, shed roofs, ceiling panels, you name it. We've collected a few examples of corrugated plastics, fiberglass, and polycarbonates here for inspiration.

Check it out for yourself:
