Indoor Fountains For Soothing Spaces
The Wonderful World of Indoor Water Fountains
There's just something about the sound of indoor water fountains and flowing water. It soothes us. Relaxes us. Inspires us. Heals us. It transport us to far away places. Just its sound has the ability to wash away all our stress.
Whether the sound of water comes from a trickling brook or a steady rain on a tin roof nothing compares to the calming and hypnotic effect water has on the human soul. Some call it "Sound Therapy", others "Meditation for the Soul".
Whatever you call it, we used to have to wait for a Spring rain to soothe our souls but with the ever increasing popularity of bringing the outdoors in, we can now have our own nature inspired therapeutic spa in the comfort of our own homes through indoor water fountains.
Indoor Water Fountains
A Compliment to Any Decor
Not only is a water fountain a compliment to any decor but they've also been proven to be beneficial to the home environment. Along with their soothing properties they also provide added humidity to a home which is beneficial to your health and those of your pets, especially in the drying winter months.
Some like it for the way it drowns out background noise in a home and de-stresses and calms its occupants.
Works of Art
Many indoor fountains are also works of art. There are so many different varieties available now from table top to wall fountains in all decor styles.
Let It Flow - Wall/Table Fountains for Home or Office Decor
I love slate anything. I'm a sucker for it! It goes with any decor and the thing I like most about this fountain is the waterfall effect. Watching it, it almost hypnotizes you !
This is NOT fountain for everyone.This is for the person who wants to make an impression in a custom home or an office environment. I've seen these at dentists' offices and they're just spectacular!
This is SUCH a neat fountain. Along with the water cascading over the centrepiece, it also features illuminated lighting in different colors.
I really do love the cascading effect of this fountain. It sits about 8" tall and is a great buy for the price!
Benefits of an Indoor Fountain
They look lovely but did you know there are also health benefits to having an indoor fountain ? Here are just a few:
- The sound of flowing water breaks down the other background sounds in a home so that you hardly notice them. The annoying dog barking in the next house, the lawn mower or the passing traffic outside.
- I don't think there's a person alive that doesn't de-stress and relax hearing water. That's one of the reasons you'll find them very popular at dentists offices now. As most people are typically nervous at a dentists, more and more offices are being designed with a very zen-like theme to them including the addition of fountains.
- Indoor fountains can remove impurities in the air and add much needed humidity to a room.
The water that evaporates in the air from a fountain refreshens the surrounding air with negative ions thereby making any room healthier.

I am SO in love with this wall fountain! This looks stunning at the top of the stairs and if you had a large niche in your hallway it would look great there also.
Feng Shui Fact #3
If your indoor fountain is placed near a door, make sure the water is flowing towards the door and not away from it.
If it flows towards the door, it is believed it will bring prosperity to you, however if the water is flowing away from the door your prosperity will flow away with it.
