Do you have anything in Alienation mind which you could probably add a pinch of style to that glass block project? Well, there is a convenient answer now. With the launch of coloured glass your windows, showers, or wall projects can actually look amazing without letting go the functional advantages of the block. Below you’ll learn about 3 unique projects that combined colours and block patterns to create one of a kind results.
Project 1. Purple Coloured Glass Block Windows in a Bookstore-
A bookstore in Northwest Ohio had old deteriorated dark purple glass tiles from the 1930’s in their transom windows. The issue with these tiles is they weren’t energy efficient, many of the tiles and grout joints were cracked, and were no longer commercially available. As a solution, a deep rich purple amethyst block was specially developed and designed to match the colours of the old glass tiles in this commercial renovation. The benefit of the new block is it saves 10 times more energy and the customer had a wide range of block patterns and styles to pick from.
Project 2. A Checkerboard Pattern Yellow and Green Glass Block Wall for Privacy in a home near Boston
A homeowner near Boston Massachusetts wanted to create a privacy wall between a half bathroom on one side and a kitchen with a uniquely colored pot belly stove on the other side As the bathroom had a window the goal was to move light from the outside of the home, through the half bath area, and into the kitchen without sacrificing privacy in the bathroom. As a solution, a standard amber goldenrod yellow block and a custom designed light green block were designed for this project to augment the colors of the pot belly stove and walls in this home.
Project 3. Random Red, Yellow, Green, Purple, & Blue Colors for a Glass Block Walk In Shower in Cincinnati Ohio
A customer of Mid America Glass Block in Cincinnati & Dayton Ohio wanted the upkeep free advantages of a walk in block shower to stop having to clean the bottom of the framed shower wall & door system of her old shower. As a solution, for this project a standard Wavy pattern block from Mulia was chosen using finished end blocks for the two walls of the shower.
