Your water fountain should be an expression of you. You'll get the most benefit out of having a fountain if you own one that you enjoy and that fits your style.
You can create stunning or special fountains at home that will stay within your budget!
You've probably seen a water fountain in a public space, or a fountain you wish you could have taken home. It might have been a beautiful work of art, a poignant memorial, or just a small bit of peace and quiet in a busy world.
Classical fountains have a timeless elegance to them; traditional designs are found in a wide array of contemporary fountains: classical and Greek styles remain popular, due to their ability to add a touch of elegance to any surrounding. Greek urns and jars have a very earthen appeal to them and are one of the most widely used styles. They're great whether they're placed indoors or out.
A tiered fountain is another classic element that is often used today, both in public and private spaces. You can get tiers in almost any number, but usually two, three, or four are used to help keep the fountain from looking cluttered.
Lighted water fountains are incredibly beautiful fountains, and often the lights surrounding them or in the water help to highlight the design. At night, lights can give a fountain an extra bit of magic that it may be missing during the day.
Soothing lights from a fountain in your home or garden can help de-stress at the end of the day. Add a lighted fountain to a den or other quiet area. They're ideal for establishing mood and adding some quiet ambience to an area.
In your garden, a fountain's lights can also serve the same purpose. They can be a subtle effect to complement lights you may already have, or they can be a dramatic statement that highlights the fountain as a centerpiece in your outdoor space.
Not all fountains have to be made from high-tech materials or have a cutting-edge design. Some of the greatest fountains take their cues from nature and incorporate that into their design. Many of these fountains bled seamlessly with the surrounding lands, creating a whole environment that is peaceful.
Achieving the natural look of stone and rock water fountains and water falls is easy. If you already have a fountain, consider adding some plants or river rocks to the surrounding area, or put some rocks in the basin. Outside, help your fountain become truly part of its environment by integrating it into its surroundings with great lighting and plants.
Whatever you choose, let it be a reflection of you!
