Old Italian Home with a Satellite Dish
Just like this 1850’s Italian home shown above with a satellite dish that I took a picture of during a recent trip abroad combining a modern looking glass block shower into a more traditional, Tuscan or ornate type of architecture can be just the unique element you may be looking for. Here are some unique design ideas for your next shower remodeling project:
• Cool shower colors – Whether you like bold jewel tone color glass blocks or the muted look of frosted glass blocks in the natural kitchen and wine color series combining blocks and style is all the rage.
•Turn it, twist it and build it up – Glass block corners, shapes and angles can turn an ordinary shower into an extraordinary block design. For a rectangular design use a corner block. For a rounded walk in shower use a radius Arque block from Pittsburgh Corning. If you want an angular or hexagonal design use the Tridron 45 degree block.
• Etch a mural or design in the blocks – Perhaps you want to create a design of your favorite landscape, a family picture or a hobby in the glass units. Custom etched glass blocks can truly take on any design that you’d like.
Make it old, make it new – make it cool and unique with a glass block shower design.
•Do you have any tips combining old and new architectural elements? Do you want any assistance with a glass block shower?
