Why Color Glass Blocks Can Be The Perfect Addition

Most people who inquire about our glass blocks do so in a rather conservative matter. Sure, glass block themselves are far from conservative, but color glass blocks take it a step further in terms of boldness. Most customers come in wanting the same thing out of glass blocks: limited visibility in terms of privacy, good lighting, sleek designs and something that “pops”. These are all good things and we are happy that our glass blocks offer them, but for the customers who come in and inquire about our color glass blocks, we get a little more excited.

Color glass blocks still give you the privacy factor, the lighting and most definitely something that “pops”, but it also gives you a whole different area of design that isn’t available with our non-color glass blocks. These colored blocks can be the perfect addition for your bathroom, living room, walkway or even as its own freestanding partition. Imagine being able to match the interior decor to your colored glass blocks. That would be one way to get some positive reactions and praise from your guests. Color glass blocks can also give you a year round, and free, supply of colored light that would brighten a room beautifully. If you may be thinking colored glass blocks are not as strong as regular glass blocks, then you are mistaken. These blocks are just as structurally sound as every other glass block, with the exception of our Vistabrik glass bricks, and can be used in any place a non-colored glass block can be.
