3 Ways To Use Decorative Glass Blocks To Spruce Things Up Around Your House

Are you looking for easy and fun ways to spruce things up around your home, whether inside or out? Consider making use of some decorative glass blocks. They are affordable and can be utilized in a variety of different ways. Here are just a few ways to use decorative glass blocks around your house to spruce things up a little:

Divide a Room Up

If you want to create a play area for your little ones in the family room where their toys won't interfere with the rest of the room and your older household members will not interrupt playtime, you can use decorative glass blocks to do so. The blocks will give your room a new look and feel while allowing you to easily build a barrier for the play space that does not require any serious renovations.

Just layer the blocks side-by-side and on top of each other to create the walls necessary for a private play space. This basic idea can be used to separate space in any room of your home, even the basement, for any reason and/or use. Construction glue can be used to secure the blocks in place, but if they will not be bumped into a lot, the blocks can be placed as-is so that they are easy to move around and redesign in the future.

Make a Kitchen Backsplash

Lining decorative glass blocks along the back of your kitchen counters, against the walls, and side-by-side, will create a dynamic backsplash that is unique and likely will not be found in any homes near yours. You can line the blocks one by one as they are to create a breathtaking ambiance, but this is not your only option.

Line LED light strips along the counter behind the blocks to create a glowing, 3D effect. You can paint the blocks to make them match with the rest of your kitchen's décor or cover them with glow-in-the-dark liquid so that they brighten up when you turn a blacklight on.

Enhance Your Gardens

You can also use decorative glass blocks to enhance the gardens located outside of your home. Use them to create dynamic gardening pots or line garden beds with them. Line them side-by-side along the edges of your garden paths to keep people on track and minimize the chance that your grass and herbs will get trampled on. Or use them to create small sitting benches near your flower gardens. The options are limited only by your imagination.
