Ideas For Using A Fountain In Your Home Or Garden Décor
by Simon Phillips
Adding a water fountain is a wonderful way to create a peaceful and welcoming atmosphere in your garden or inside your home. The sound and sight of trickling water is naturally soothing and water fountains can be used in both outdoor and indoor settings to help induce a feeling of calm and relaxation. There are various types of fountains, from elegant stone structures designed to be focal points of a garden, to small but decorative tabletop fountains perfect for a study or living room.
Modern outdoor fountains are self-contained and easy to set up, with no plumbing required. They run on either an electrical pump or on solar power, which has the benefit of no running costs.
A bird bath style fountain not only looks lovely in a garden, it will be good for attracting wildlife, including birds and butterflies that will be drawn to the water.
An outdoor wall fountain is another design, which can make a stunning centerpiece on any garden or patio wall. Wall fountains can work well in small courtyard gardens. They are ideal for both adding visual appeal to an otherwise bare wall, and for helping to drown out the noise of traffic by producing a gentle trickling sound, transforming your backyard into a peaceful retreat from the rush of modern life.
A pond fountain can be used to great effect in a garden pond, with the continually cascading water creating a decorative display, as well as helping to prevent the pond water becoming stagnant.
Fountains designed for indoor use come in a range of sizes and styles, from small desktop fountains to larger ones that make a big impact in large spaces, such as an entrance hall or reception area.
Indoor tabletop fountains come in a variety of styles, including classical, oriental and contemporary, so you should be able to find one that’s a perfect match for the décor theme of your room. Having a water fountain indoors is great for creating a calming ambiance and easing stress. The moving water also acts as a natural humidifier and helps combat air pollution by releasing negative ions.
An indoor fountain is an excellent accessory for a home office or study, or can look stunning as a unique ornament on a mantelpiece or bookshelf in the living room.
Garden and Indoor water fountains make great gifts, or alternatively you could treat yourself to one and add a special touch to your garden design or interior décor.
