Water is our friend. We drink it, cook with it, and bathe in it. But, did you ever consider the sound of water? Many yogis and spiritual folk will tell you that the sound of water can be the most distressing sound ever.
Considering to install an indoor fountain in your home, can lend a peaceful and mindful appeal to any room.
Indoor fountains are quite the trend nowadays and are considered living art. They come in various shapes, sizes, and styles. With that tinkling of water and great lighting, you can have a setup that will be all the envy.
Whether you decide to go for the natural approach, with rocks, stones, plants and other foliage, or a more sophisticated look, we have loads of options for you.
A few areas to consider before going off to buy your indoor fountain:
Fountains can take up quite a bit of space, and not only the structure, but the pump and piping. Consider the space you have available, and also how you will hide the extra wires and piping
Look at your surrounding furniture and style – will it suit a natural material, such as wood, rock, copper or stone? Or, will you go with cement or brick?
One can make the indoor fountain a focal point and place it in the center of an entrance hall, or in the lounge. Consider, as well, that walls are great spaces to attach a fountain, and they are essentially out of the way. In addition, tables can accommodate smaller indoor fountains, and be just as attractive
Running the same water through your fountain means using less water from your household. This is the optimum way of running an indoor fountain. Water also can splash, so make sure you have a large enough catchment area
Hiding wires and piping
You want your indoor fountain to look as natural as possible, so ensure you are able to hide the wires and piping that leads to and from the pump and fountain area
Water falling from a further distance will sound louder on impact, so take that into account and what area it will be placed in.
