DIY Bathroom Remodel Using Glass Blocks

Home Owners in Metropolitan areas like New York, Boston and Philadelphia are finding that remodeling their current home is a preferred alternative over selling and buying a new home in this economic climate. The Bathroom is an excellent DIY remodeling project to add new elegance to their home.

Bathroom remodels using dreamy bathtubs and showers are featured in this HGTV post. The use of light in bathrooms is so important. Light is critical to the luxury and leisure effect that you want from your bathroom. After all, this is your retreat, your place of seclusion and rest.EXTERIOR_25

Glass Block can easily enhance the light while at the same time providing privacy and energy efficiency.

While you are soaking in the tub, you may not be thinking about the utility bill. As a matter of fact, you should not be thinking about anything like that. But, while you are not in the room, there is a piece of mind knowing the light filling it is energy-efficient.

Light is so important to the elegance factor. But, not all of us have a great deal of space between us and our neighbors. We want piece-of-mind knowing that we are filling the room with light without losing our privacy.

You will just need to place the Glass Block in the window opening and fasten along the built-in nailing fins which are now set back 1¼” to fit all siding and stucco applications. The Glass Block is bonded with silicone for an all-glass look, so there’s no need to hire skilled labor – and there’s no clean-up hassle.Eastern Glass Block LightWise Unique Features
