How To Select Colored Glass Blocks

Depending on where you want to use your colored glass blocks, you can get an idea of what options there are and what might work for you. Used for a variety of applications including creating walls in both showers and bars, there are many options available that can suit any project you want to use colored glass blocks on.


Where to Use Colored Glass Blocks

A large portion of your selection will be determined on where you want to use the glass blocks. Some blocks are designed for interior projects and some are for exterior use. Making the distinction in your plan will help you narrow down your selection. 


What Look Do You Want?

There are many colors available including vibrant colors and muted colors. Determining the color arrangement you plan on using will help you select a manufacturer that deals in that color scheme. There are also options available that allow you to get multi-colored dichroic blocks that let you see more than one color when looking at them from different angles.  


There are many size options for colored glass blocks, ranging from the most common 7 ½ inches by 7 ½ inches and 8 inches by 8 inches, as well as numerous other specialty sizes.


Your budget may be the one major determining factor as well. Clear glass blocks are generally two to five times cheaper than the colored blocks, so you may consider using clear blocks as the main component of your project and only accenting with color blocks.
