The first and most important thing you have to take into account is how bright your shower stall will be if you use frosted glass. It takes away a fair amount of light and that is something that can end up creating a fairly claustrophobic environment in your shower enclosure. If there is a light right above your shower you will most likely be fine with frosted glass as well. If there is not you might have to consider using clear glass. There is also a possibility to use a combination of frosted and clear glass. This combination usually consists of frosted glass up to around head height and continues with clear glass above it. This way a lot of light can enter your shower stall and you still experience some privacy.
