Glass blocks disappear and come back as new bathroom design trends from time to time. There is a mysterious power of transparency that attracts many architects and interior designers exploring new ideas in decorating modern interiors. Glass is a perfect, versatile and beautiful material for redesigning small rooms. It makes small bathrooms look light, functional and spacious. Combined with natural or artificial lighting, glass blocks create unique and bright walls.

Mid-Century modern homes and chic contemporary apartments feature glass block walls in bathrooms. In retro modern homes, glass blocks are supported by mortar, but modern architectural designs use silicone, wood and aluminum bars to create elegant and functional bathroom walls with glass elements. If you have a dark, small bathroom, think of adding glass to brighten up the interior.

The look and structural strength have to work together for functional and modern shower designs and bathroom partition walls. Contemporary horizontal or vertical spacers, reinforcing wire for support, aluminum grids or wooden frames look stylish and elegant, offering great alternatives to mortar or silicone. The best base for glass block walls is concrete floors and tiles. Bathrooms in Mid-century Modern homes that have concrete floors and houses with tiled floors are ideal for bathroom renovation projects that include building glass block walls.
