It is possible to build single-colour and mosaic walls from coloured glass blocks. Meanwhile producers offer "bricks" of various tinctures - from pale-beige and greenish to brightly-orange, cornflower blue, navy blue and violet. Clearly, such bright tones practically fully hide everything that takes place on the other side of the glass wall, however, at the same time such partitions admit natural light and in darkness look like the magic lantern due to illumination.


In general, one of main advantages of the glass wall is its appearance - it always looks differently, which adds to the interior the feeling of freshness and novelty. The wall can partition off the tea site in the living room, working zone or playing zone in the nursery.


In order for the transparent wall to serve you for a long time, it is necessary not only to select glass bricks of the appropriate color, structure and size, but also to assemble them correctly. In particular, the ideally even wall will be formed only with usage of correctly chosen mortar and intricate plastic spacing cross-marks. Special angular blocks, which can be coloured in all tones, will help to smooth out acute angles. By the way, the ordinary glass block cannot be the last in the construction - it needs some support, for example, other walls or butt bar from bricks, metal or wood.


Glass blocks can be build at any plane - horizontal, vertical and sloping. However, there are some restrictions. In particular, glass ceiling can't be loaded from above and the area of glass cannot be more than 15 sq. m. If you dream about laying of rounded or undulating constructions from transparent bricks, it is necessary to remember that their rounding must have a sufficiently large radius. Otherwise gaps between elements will be too large and building durability will decrease. In particular, it will not be possible to construct a narrow round column from glass blocks.


Glass ideas for a bathroom.

Many people face with the situation, when in the bathroom there is not enough space for storage of both necessary items and different knick-knacks. There are shampoo bottles, creams, a hair dryer and just bathing things, and even ordinary toilet paper needs its own place. With the lapse of time, you have more and more such things. And all of them need a separate place.


Some bathroom items should be held far from prying eyes, but some of them, on the contrary, can beautifully decorate the bathroom design. Such bathroom toiletry goods can be placed on ordinary glass shelves, located in the safe and comfortable place.


Setting of such shelves is absolutely not difficult and gives no troubles, but on the contrary, in short time it will transform your bathroom. To fit properly, bathroom shelves are to be ideally leveled relative to the floor and to each other. If there is one shelf on the bathroom wall, small slope 2-4 mm cannot be especially noticeable. But if you have several bathroom shelves that are located closely, these 2-4 mm can quite disfigure the effect.


Designer ideas can not only decorate the bathroom, but also bring benefit.

It is always pleasant to change something around yourself. And for this you don't need to trash the entire house. Good example is the glass bathroom shelves. For implementation of this planning you don't need to move furniture, break walls and incur heavy costs. Quickly, simply and attractively.


Unlike other rooms, bathroom needs bright light, space and air. Therefore, experiment more during the choice of interior. A bathroom has long ago ceased being only facility for washing our body. Now it is a physical therapy device for support of tone, the element of aesthetics of interior and the place for joint pastime. Although, in fact, it remained what it was for many ages - a water reservoir.
