Colored Glass Blocks Pack a Stylish Punch into Small Spaces and Tight Budgets

Share Article

American's just don't have the disposable income they had in the past. Now, more than ever, it's critical to add style and interest for interior walls, showers and windows without breaking the bank. New lines of colored glass blocks in multiple shapes, shades, tints, and reflective coatings can create the focal point for a memorable design at a cost-effective price.

Let's face facts - remodeling and new construction budgets are getting squeezed; the culprits - declining stock markets, lower home values, and shaky consumer confidence. Instead of grand room additions and large construction projects, homeowners and commercial businesses alike, are looking for ways to create memorable spaces and projects on an affordable budget. Colored glass blocks are just the right building material to turn lifeless windows, walls and showers into design focal points.

Columbus Glass Block offers a broad line of colored and dichroic (a multi-colored reflective product) glass blocks. Mike Foti, President of Columbus Glass Block says, "We're excited about the new technologies that allow us to color virtually any shape, tint, or glass block size and pattern in small order quantities. With our free nationwide shipping program and new multi-colored reflective dichroic blocks we've seen orders for these products really jump."

Colored glass block showers, windows and walls are sold individually or in easy to install prefabrication sections. There is a standard color range that includes vibrant jewel tones, softer earth tones, and pastels. Some of the colors in the line include ruby red, topaz orange, emerald green, sapphire dark blue, cinnamon, sage, pink champagne, bronze, cobalt blue to name a few. Custom colors can also be created to match or contrast either an interior or exterior application. There is also a line of designer blocks where customized murals can be baked into the face of the block.

These blocks are put together with mortar or a specialized glass block silicone sealant. Projects can include colored blocks as a random accent, stripe, checkerboard pattern, or a solid color(s) throughout the window or wall. Coloring can be put into any size, shape or pattern of block. This material has been used in a wide range of projects from residential homes to churches to partition walls in hospitals and commercial buildings.
