Got a problem area? Glass blocks may provide a unique solution
Glass blocks are a trendy way to add an eye-catching addition to any space in the home. They’re sleek, contemporary, sturdy, versatile, and best of all, low maintenance. Glass blocks come in a variety of sizes, shapes, patterns, and colors and allow privacy while letting in light. Here are four ways to use glass blocks:
Glass block shower enclosures: Do you need to fit a shower into a bathroom with an odd shape or limited space? Glass block shower enclosures can be customized to fit any size bathroom, large or small and regardless of shape. Because glass blocks are available in so many sizes and shapes, the showers can be square, rectangular, or even curved or rounded. Glass blocks are rugged and long-lasting. They tend to last longer than tile or traditional glass showers.
Glass block room dividers: If you want to divide a room but don’t want a plain old drywall wall, glass blocks may be the answer. Whether you need a floor-to-ceiling partition or a half-wall room divider, glass blocks are a stylish way to divvy up a space. Not only do they add an interesting focal point to the room, they allow light to filter through. Add colored or patterned blocks for a unique look.
Glass block accents: Glass blocks can create an interesting accent wherever you install them. Use them on the back of a kitchen island for a finishing touch that is stylish and easy-to-clean. A glass block bar becomes the center of attention in a recreation room, home theater, or family room. Use laser-etched glass blocks or colored glass blocks to create a one-of-a kind focal point in any room.
Glass block garage and basement windows: Glass blocks are more than just an attractive way to replace the traditional single-pane windows in most garages and basements. In addition to esthetic appeal, glass blocks let in light while providing privacy. They are hard to remove and almost impossible to break, adding to your home’s security. Glass blocks are more energy efficient than single or double-pane glass windows, reducing heating and cooling costs.
