Benefits Of Indoor And Outdoor Water Features

Have you ever thought about adding a water fountain or two to your home? Even aside from the esthetic beauty of having a water fountain in your home, there are many benefits of having them both inside and outside.

Inside, the streaming sound of water creates a calm, tranquil environment. This calm environment can help you relax and helps maintain emotional and physical health including stress relieve which in turn helps in lowering blood pressure. The sound of water flowing can also drown out other not so pleasing white noise such as that of computers and heating/cooling systems running.

If you live in a cold climate, having a water fountain in your home also adds humidity to the air making your home feel more comfortable. The humidity is also good for your body especially for your skin and hair. Indoor water fountains are available as standalone fountains that you can put on a table or shelf or even on the floor if it is a large water fountain. There are also wall fountains that can be mounted to a wall or in some cases, can just be set in front of a wall. Again, these come in a variety of sizes to fit whatever needs you have.

Outdoor water fountains can help you be green and help the environment. There are even solar water fountains now which will help save electricity. An outside water fountain can be a source of water for birds and other outdoor wildlife. If you choose to have a garden fountain, it can also provide some moisture to your garden if it is set up to do so. If you do choose a solar water fountain, you can put it anywhere and or even have multiple water fountains in your yard. Ponds are a popular feature in many yards today; it is simple to add a water fountain to a pond. Not only does it add beauty to the pond, it also serves to circulate the water which in turn helps the pond be a better environment for any fish and other living creatures that inhabit it.
