Updated on February 16, 2018

Discovering the therapeutic benefit of indoor water features with my aquarium, I soon found that tabletop waterfalls gave me the same effect

Indoor floor water fountains are more than artistic or creative ideas put to use by designers or decorators.

These contemporary water features are decorative pieces of art that are meant to have great and beneficial effects on human emotions and personal well-being.

Architects and designers are aware that the materials and design of our homes have a huge impact on our feelings and our ways of life, and utilising indoor water features in the interior design theme, is a feat of technology and design, that uses water, a natural element, to add serene energy to the indoors.

This results in creating a relaxing, calming and soothing environment.

Calming and invigorating, a decorative waterfall is always an eye-catching addition to the home and are designed to be affordable, and surprisingly, simple to install.

Benefits of Indoor Water Features

  • Water, known to purify polluted air, brings tranquillity, peace and nature's serenity of sights and sounds into the home or the workplace.
  • The indoor waterfalls are perfect as a focal point within a room, and these items make great conversation pieces.
  • Great for the bedroom, where the gentle sounds will calm and lull one into peaceful fret-free slumber.
  • Those who meditate will do well to meditate within a room with indoor floor water fountains. The sound of flowing water is good for the body and the soul.
  • During the hot summer months, watching the cascading water, and hearing its gentle sounds gives a cooling effect in the day or the hot summer nights.

Popular Materials Used for Water Features

Indoor floor water fountains have water trickling gently down stunning slabs of stone, with the natural stones available including black stones, green stones, and even multicoloured natural stones or pebbles. The stone or other natural elements used are usually hand finished for unique textured looks.

Indoor floor water fountains also come in other natural materials such as terracotta, marble, slate and granite, some designed with the natural or rustic look in mind, and others with well-defined shapes and cuts.

Eco-friendly materials set in a natural theme, such as the use of bamboo stalks combined with natural plants also make beautiful water features. Tilted pots dispensing water gently from one into the other are great works of water feature's art.

A traditional and more natural look comes in hundreds of different styles, and there are floor fountains which take on a very authentic look and sit well in a traditional home setting.

There are other varieties of materials used for very modern indoor floor water fountains designs. These are materials such as glass, copper, steel and other new age materials are very popular designs that have very modern and contemporary looks that fit well in a modern apartment or house.

How To Use Indoor Floor Water Fountains

Personal taste and style will play an important part in the choice of the desired indoor floor water fountains, and creative imagination can be used to place them in different areas of the home interior.

And as circulation of water in contemporary water features also come in various forms and ways, with some cascading gently down, as with the waterfall effect, while others circulate by 'pouring' from one beautiful receptacle to another, if anyone is seeking something to give an interior a ‘wow' effect, then the purchase of beautiful indoor floor water fountains is worth considering.

Any open space can be partitioned with contemporary water features, using indoor floor water fountains.

Using a floor waterfall feature, fitted within a free-standing wall unit, or as a 'stand-alone', will effectively divide an otherwise open and bland space within a room, thus creating two separate and distinct areas.

A good example is a separation of the living area from the dining area or a visual partition between the dining area and an open kitchen. The feature can give a new attraction to space.

So, if you want to pep up a dull and boring room within the home, do so by decorating it with an indoor floor fountain.

And with its rising popularity amongst home owners and owners of commercial ventures such as offices, spas, doctor's clinics, hotels, night clubs, restaurants, and other similar establishments, using aesthetic features such as indoor floor water fountains will greatly enhance the interior.

Visitors will love the mood created using the natural element - water, with its gentle sounds, flowing and cascading pleasantly.

      I have always wanted to have a fountain in my home. The problem is I can never decide which one will work. Some say Raku fountains are a good idea to calm the nerves and introduce some Feng Shui to the home. I do like animal themed fountains and if desktop, I plan to set one up in the study room where I can hear the gentle trickle of water as I type away at the keyboard. Thanks for sharing! Nice article!

      Very Nicely done, indoor fountains have come a long way. Most people are scared of splashing or the troubles of hanging a wall fountain but designs have come a long way allowing for easy installation and splash free features. Great hub and keep up the great work!

      Hello Teresa,

      Indoor floor water fountains are beautiful, no doubt, but if you don't have much space, you can use a table top water fountain. They are equally beautiful and give the same calming effect.

      You can place one on your coffee table or on a shelf. I have a hub on those too.

      Thanks for visiting Teresa, and for leaving a nice comment.
