And also can you put these on the 'floor'? in a non- high traffic area? Or even in an outdoor area? ALSO>>> I just moved back into my once upon a time 'dream home'.... renters have done $16,000 worth of damage! I am crushed! Thank goodness me and my boys are pretty good DIYers... but I need some help here folks! I need to be pulling some cheap tricks/ideas out of somebody's DIY bag to able to get this place back into shape. :-)
I had a friend who had a very very small space between upper and lower cabinets of her kitchen, and it was an outside wall, so to bring more light in they cut out places for the glass blocks all across underneath a set of cabinets, adding more light to the kitchen without more heat. Looked really custom.
Renters can be wonderful or awful. After our last experience we sold ours- too expensive doing repairs after each tenant. We had to spruce things up quite a bit to sell, including a new kitchen floor (even the underlay was ruined. As for your glass tile, how about a half wall of them in the bathroom for more privacy if they are structural, if the toilet is in plain view? I like the cabinet and window ideas, too. In the basement, you could probably use them to define an area. Outdoors? Not sure, but, glass should hold up with the right adhesive. I googled glass tile and came up with backsplashes, etc.Here's a link to one place that used them outdoors: https://www.glasstilewarehouse.com/outdoor-projects?view=item&layout=item There were also countertop ideas: http://www.houzz.com/glass-tile-countertops
