Decorating with Table Fountains
With unlimited possibilities available, table top fountains can add understated beauty or grandeur to any room in your house. Fountains are a worthy investment even for those who hesitate to spend money on aesthetics. Beyond eye-catching appeal, you'll find that fountains have practical health benefits.
Cascading water reduces stress by bringing a sense of tranquility into a room as it engages the senses-sight, sound, and even smell. Research has shown that moving water can improve air quality by cleansing the room of dust particles and working as a humidifier. Fountains also do the following:
Table Top Fountains soothe the soul with natural outdoor sounds.
Table Top Fountains offer a visually appealing focal point to a family room or home work space.
Table Top Fountains filter sounds like computer noise, a refrigerator hum, or next room telephone conversations.
Table Top Fountains provide aromatherapy when candlelight is included in the design.
Options include table fountains, floor fountains and wall water fountains. You can find a table top fountain to compliment your current decorative choices. Far more interesting than a table lamp and more appealing than a decorative candle holder, these conveniently sized fountains eliminate the mundane. Easy to set up and even easier to maintain, space saving compact designs come in layered slate, granite sculpture, handcrafted wood, or any other material you desire.
Floor fountains compliment larger spaces than table top fountains. Floor fountains are a perfect choice for foyers, rooms with vaulted ceilings, and enclosed patios. Floor fountains make a statement about a space and those who have decorated it. Choose the fountain according to the overall look you are trying to achieve in your decor. For example--antique copper and river rocks present a rustic feel while a full-fledged waterfall makes an exotic impression.
Wall water fountains are the most dramatic fountains of the three. You can mount a wall fountain in a prominent place or build it into a wall. An entire wall can be transformed into a fountain of calm trickling water or a rapidly flowing display. Wall water fountains are often built with aluminum, concrete, river rock, copper, glass, or terra cotta. Features can include planters, light, and mist.
Whether the water flows, trickles, and comes down in a solid sheet of reflection, fountains offer the versatility needed to create a unique home interior. The practical benefits alone make fountains a worthy addition to your interior design.
