An indoor water fountain, being also a natural decorative air humidifier, will provide a natural comfort in your home, take care of creating a relaxing or refreshing atmosphere, and harmony in your home.
The most important task while choosing a fountain is to determine its main function. It can be:
- air purification.
Fountain water wall
If the effect of health recovery is of primary importance, then the optimal solution will be a design called a “water wall”. This kind of fountain suggests a water flux flowing down the mirror, stone, or glass surface from the top downwards with a continuous stream. Due to the large evaporation surface, this fountain moisturizes the air and reduces the amount of dust in the room. In addition, creating water changing wave patterns visually looks very beautiful. With the help of various finishing materials, this fountain can easily fit into almost any interior design ideas.
Air bubble fountain
Air bubble fountains are usually made in the form of a column or a thin panel. Rising columns are particularly effective in the rooms with high ceilings. Panels are most often built into a wall or located nearby. In its form, an air bubble fountain is a water-filled aquarium of a specific shape. Air bubbles rise from its bottom unevenly. This makes a stunning visual effect together with soft lighting background. Glycerine and special colored oils are poured into such aquariums instead of the water, creating balls of different sizes that move along the aquarium, creating fantastic dances of different colors and shapes.
String fountain is a pipe fixed under the ceiling with a small water tank located under this pipe. From the pipe down, water falls into the “pond” with a thin stream or large drops. The great advantage of such fountain is that it harmoniously fits into any finish. Typically, such structures are installed along the columns, sometimes – walls.
As it is not difficult to see, the names of fountain species reflect the essence of their working. A similar conclusion can be drawn about natural fountains, which can be called a small corner of nature in any interior.
These compositions are made from stones, on which water flows down. Such fountains look like a miniature copy of beautiful natural places – existing in reality or invented. Natural fountains create coziness and comfort in the room, but they, unfortunately, are not suitable for all interiors. So, such a fountain will not be quite appropriate in a room made in the style of high-tech. The contrast, in this case, will catch your eye.
