In The Home
Glass Blocks have really come of age, and are now being seen as the perfect alternative to glass panes. They are perfect for increasing the light into rooms that are usually poorly lit, and, with a little imagination, can add a real touch of class to the decor.
You can add light to a lounge or utility area, add some light and colour to a newly converted loft or just provide a feature wall between a lounge area and study or dining room. The choice is yours.
Glass Blocks can be inserted into a ready prepared opening, or used as a freestanding feature.
In The Kitchen
For many of us, the kitchen is now often the centre piece of our home. It is not just where we cook our meals, it is often where we eat, greet friends and entertain guests.
Kitchens are one of the most popular areas of the house to renovate, whether increasing the size, adding modern units, or even getting more light in it is where many of us spend our time, and so we want it looking the best.
Glass blocks are the perfect product, not just for getting more light in, but for adding colour and creating fantastic features such as breakfast bars.
In The Bathroom
Glass blocks are perfect for use within the Bathroom or Shower room.
Both our fixing systems will give you a waterproof seal, making them perfect for use as a shower screen or bath/sink splash back. Where light is less an issue, we even do solid black or white blocks, purely for decorative use, and a nice added feature.
For en-suite bathrooms, we can supply you with a range of Satin finish blocks, clear or coloured, which will give you natural light whilst maintaining privacy.
In The Bedroom
Many homes now have en-suite facilities, which are often dark and rely only on artificial light. Using Glass Blocks, you can increase the natural light to these areas, or even to bedroom in general, and by using a Satin finish, you maintain that all important privacy.
Open Planned Office Use
Glass Blocks are brilliant for use within the modern open planned style offices. You can create private meeting areas, or add sound dampening with some well placed glass block walls.
What’s more, you don’t lose that all important natural light.
Energy Saving Glass Block Walls
Many new domestic and office builds now have to meet stringent requirements for energy saving to conform with the latest rules on climate change.
Energy saving glass blocks create even more light transmittance, especially during winter months, and they also reduce heat loss, which will reduce your energy needs and therefore save you money.
