Types of Indoor Fountains

Indoor fountains have become quite popular all over the globe as they are known to give a beautiful look and create a calming ambience in your home or office.

There are a wide range of colors, materials, textures, sizes, and styles available in indoor fountains. You can get any look for your space including modern, classical, rustic and refined. Indoor fountains are available in various sizes and shapes, they may also come with or without lighting effects and can be shiny or matte.

Indoor fountains are generally categorized in three types: Wall mounted fountain, Floor fountain and Tabletop fountain. All the types are explained in detail below:

Indoor wall water fountains / Indoor wall water feature

Wall mounted fountain or indoor wall water feature is a popular type of fountain. As the name suggests, wall mounted fountains are directly mounted on the wall with the help of a bracket system. Instead of mounting a decorative piece on the wall, wall water fountains can be an eye-catching focal point. It won’t take up much of your space and the room will be much more functional. Just place the fountain on the wall and enjoy the peaceful ambience. A bonus of having a wall mounted fountain is that can be easily kept out of reach of children and pets.

Most often the wall mounted fountains have a bottom and top panel made out of copper or steel. The bottom panel holds the pump and water and the water re-circulates and sprays again on the surface. The surface type is usually slate, marble or mirrored surface. Mixing and matching so many materials can help you get the desired look for your space.

Wall hung water fountains provide a modern and contemporary look to the space in respect to their design. They usually are made in rectangular shape and can be placed horizontally or vertically as per your choice or you can mount it as per the style that best fits the space of your home or office.

A room with high ceilings is the best to display a vertical wall fountain, while a horizontal fountain would be the best for a long hallway with a low ceiling. Wall fountains also come in smaller sizes, which make them perfect for entryways and smaller spaces. Choosing a right shape for your wall will make the space look attractive otherwise it might make the fountain look clumsy or less attractive. 

Indoor Floor Fountains

Floor fountains/ floor indoor water features create a beautiful cascading effect as it expands from the floor to almost the ceiling, creating a spectacular waterfall effect. The waterfall effect is fascinating, and apart from giving a calming effect, it also adds an aesthetic ambience to the space. Although this particular fountain looks refined, it is easy to install. Floor fountains need very minimum assembly and unlike the wall fountains, they are not bolted to the walls. Therefore, it can be easily moved from one place to another.

Floor fountains indoor often are crafted in beautiful, natural materials such as copper and glass. As far as space is concerned, floor fountains do not take up much vertical space or horizontal space compared to wall fountains, but they can be slightly greater in depth due to the size of their base, which will rest on the floor. Floor fountains can work best in corners, as room dividers, or in other spaces which aren’t too crowded. These fountains are ideal for hallways, lobbies, entryways, patios and decks.

Indoor tabletop water feature

Table top fountains are designed for smaller spaces and meant to be used on a coffee table, countertop, desk, or an end table. Tabletop water fountains can be custom made with your favorite plants and rocks, and create a set up that promotes calmness, focus and productivity.
