Glass blocks ideas

Alfred, ON(Zone 4b)

hello everyone,

I'm looking for ideas pictures of wall divisions with glass blocks.

we are building a home and we like to get the light from the sunroom to the kitchen.
and we like to use these 6" x 6" blocks.

does anyone know of a site where I can find pictures?

we are just about redy to start with the divisions and we still don't know how we wanna make it.

thanks

Carmen,

I did a search on Google with decorating + "glass blocks" and came up with too many sites to list :)

Good luck! It looks really pretty!!

Carmen...also look up old epsodes on HGTV's site...I do remember one, where the glass blocks were used to separate a seating area and water feature in the garden....it was very nice.....also had an episode for using the glass blocks for light and privacy in the bathroom.

update on the glassblocks,

we have choosen to add 4 blocks to each diamond shape.
I have added a picture with the framing.
we now have to wait till the electrical inspection, then we can start closing the walls.
