Are you unsure of what type of fountain you should choose from your home? Look no further than your décor choices and color scheme. There are so many different styles, colors, shapes, and types of decorative water fountains available, there’s no doubt you’ll be able to find the perfect one for your space!
Fountains provide a soothing, relaxing focal point in any room – and all the while, they’re also humidifying the air, masking unpleasant noise, sending out stress-relieving negative ions, and of course, improving the looks of the space.
If your home has a traditional look – floral prints, elegant draperies, antiques, and classic arrangements – you should look for a fountain that has a classic look. Tiered basins, elegant scroll work, and scalloped edges all create a polished, formal look that will complement your home’s style. Also look for fountains that feature cherubs and lions – two very timeless, popular adornments for traditional decorating schemes.
Many people today are taking on a back-to-nature, organic theme for their home. If your décor features rich colors, organic fibers, and a multicultural feel, your home will really feel complete with a fountain made of all-natural materials. Choose a fountain that combines the beauty of contrasting natural elements such as slate and copper. Another great choice would be anything that features river rocks, bamboo, ceramic, or classic waterfall-type designs.
The modern home calls for clean lines, smooth surfaces, and simplicity. Stainless steel, glass, and acrylic look particularly striking in a contemporary environment, especially when placed in a room with bold accent colors such as red or black. To add to your dramatic modern look, choose a fountain that doubles as a piece of fine art. Stylish acrylic floor fountains, simple glass floor fountains, or stainless steel wall fountains will really engage your guests and make your space complete.
Does your living space have a touch of Japanese flair, a quiet Chinese reality or a decorating scheme organized around the principles of Feng Shui? An Asian-inspired living space requires the simple beauty of such materials like stone, ceramic and bamboo. Tranquility is key; you want an understated fountain that will serve to increase the balance of the elements in your home rather than stand out among them. There are many tabletop fountains available that have clearly been created with an Asian influence in mind.
