Glass blocks aren’t just limited to glass block windows. When incorporating glass blocks into your next remodeling project, you may be concerned about making your home look dated. In fact, at WMGB Home Improvement, we can build glass block installations in ways that make your home look fresh, updated, and timeless.

Let us share with you these design ideas for using glass blocks in your home design.

  1. Bathroom – Balancing privacy and natural light can be difficult in bathrooms, but with glass blocks, you can increase your bathroom window size without sacrificing privacy. Glass blocks also make a great, easy-to-clean shower enclosure.

  2. Deck – Add excitement to your outdoor deck by adding glass block pavers in some sections of the flooring. You can even add soft LED lights under the glass for some ambient lighting. This is great for hosting a romantic dinner or just sitting on the porch swing enjoying a cold drink on a summer evening.

  3. Garden – Unlike opaque partitions, glass blocks do not fully obscure the greenery. Mix different glass sizes to provide an interesting variation on the traditional checkered look.

  4. Bar – Glass blocks can carry a lot of weight, making it the perfect material for a bar. A 40-inch tall glass block partition capped with a nice marble countertop is all you need. If you prefer a more family-friendly home improvement, use it as a breakfast counter instead.

  5. Backsplash – Why have tile backsplashes when you can have glass block ones? In addition to creating a unique look, the glass blocks also let more light onto your cooktop instead of blocking it. Plus, it looks great with the glass block bar-slash-breakfast counter.

  6. Sidelights – To brighten up your entryway with a touch of modernism, glass blocks are just what you need. It provides the same amount of natural lighting, but with better insulation and stronger security than most sidelight designs. It also adds more privacy by preventing passersby from casually peeking into your home.
