Aside from reusing glass block for remodeling projects, this material can also be used in unique ways around the home. With a small light kit, found at most hardware stores, a used glass brick can be made into a soft, radiant light fixture. Simply place the light into the hollowed out center of the block. It can be painted first for added color, or to dim the light. Try painting on decorations, such as butterflies or animals, and use as a children's night light.
With both an organic, and modern appeal, glass blocks look attractive almost anywhere. They can be used on bookshelves as bookends, as an eye-catching paperweight, or as an interesting door stopper. They also work beautifully in gardens. You can use them to line flower beds, or simply place appropriately in a garden to refract sunlight.
Resistant to mold, easy to clean, long-lasting, and visually stunning, reuse of environmentally efficient glass blocks, whether for traditional purposes, or creative innovation, is a great enhancement to any home.
