What is a Glass Block Window?

Glass Block WindowInstalling a glass block window is a great idea for rooms where you need to allow natural light to filter into the space, but where privacy is a top priority. While this is not the only option that is suitable for accomplishing these goals, it is a thoughtful and stylish option that is suitable for many spaces.

Different Styles of Glass

Glass block windows come in various finishes. Many are clear, thick glass. Some has a smooth finish, and others had a wavy, rain or lined finish. The thickness of the glass makes even the clear, smooth glass windows virtually private. However, natural light can penetrate into the room with beautiful yet completely private results. Generally, these windows do not require blinds even when they are installed in a downstairs bathroom, according to the Instructables.

Where to Install These Blocks
