To ensure privacy, bathrooms often have small, functional windows. Perhaps because of this, bathrooms are also often relegated to a position in the home that receives little direct sunlight.

With glass blocks, from National Glass, you can allow natural light into your bathroom, while still maintaining absolute privacy and security, says company manager Gary Walden.

"Few things are less appealing in a home than a dark, pokey bathroom. With glass blocks you can solve this problem in an aesthetically pleasing way. As well as making a bold design statement, glass blocks can provide the light you need, while maintaining complete privacy."

Glass blocks from National Glass are available in a number of privacy ratings, from transparent to completely obscure. They also come in a wide choice of colours and patterns, and sizes and formats.

"Glass blocks have many benefits, but thermal insulation is one of the most important," says Walden.

"Their thickness acts in a similar way to double glazing, keeping the house warmer in winter and cooler in summer. This promotes energy efficiency through reduced heating and cooling costs."
