Tip #3: Functional Floor Waterfalls for the Outdoor Space

Is it possible to use lighted floor fountains outside?  Chances are, when you’re shopping for the perfect water fountains, you’re envisioning a fountain to be enjoyed during the daylight hours. It’s only natural to think this way, but it’s also important to think of lighting options.

 Depending on where you live, your neighborhood may already have a fair bit of light pollution, and it might not seem as important to have any special lighting installed around your floor waterfalls. However, if you want to create an outdoor room that’s inviting after the sun goes down, you should give some thought to purchasing a lighted floor fountain. Since you probably don’t have electrical outlets in your garden, you may even want to consider solar water fountains to enhance and enchant your garden space. 

A lighted floor fountain that is going to be used outside should be specifically made for that purpose. Never use floor fountains for any purpose other than what they’re intended for. If the directions say not to use it outside, for your safety’s sake, don’t use it outdoors. 

Luckily, there are numerous fountains, a lot of them made especially for outdoor spaces. Before you buy, just make sure that it is going to be functional and appropriate for your living space.

Tip #4: Floor Fountains for the Medical Setting

What are the benefits of installing a floor fountain in a hospital or medical setting?  Hospitals and medical facilities have come a long way from the institutionalized look of yesteryear. Bye bye beige walls; hello pastel hues. Nobody wants to stay in a hospital for any length of time, but for those people who spend a lot of time at them, incorporating the relaxing sounds and aesthetic appeal of water fountains is a great idea. 

Payphones and vending machines used to be the first thing you’d see walking through the doors of any large public building, including hospitals. If you were lucky, a smiling face might have greeted you from the reception desk. These days, architects and designers are very in tune to the needs of the public and, as a result, are incorporating more and more floor water fountains and floor waterfalls into their designs. 

Nothing can disguise a hospital, or diminish the drama that plays out in them everyday, but the soothing sounds of a serene waterfall can add a high degree of quality and integrity to the place. Patients, visitors, and staff will all benefit from the relaxing effects of floor waterfalls. In addition, floor fountains give people something to focus on. For patients or visitors going through physical or mental pain, floor fountains give them a moment of respite. For a brief moment in time, there’s something else to focus on, something else to talk about. 

However you want to look at it, soothing water sounds are the perfect addition to any medical setting.

Tip #5: The Feel of a Floor Water Fountain

What emotional benefit do people get from indoor waterfalls?  Walk into any public building and try to define what gives the building its look and feel. Chances are it has a unique feel that speaks to the success of the business and the people who work for it. Is it the marble pillars or the well-heeled employees coming and going from the building? Is it the expanse of the cathedral ceilings in the lobby or the lush plants growing there? Chances are it’s a combination of everything, but the items that bring it all together are the floor water fountains. 

Floor water fountains in a corporate setting take on the persona of great works of art. They’re sleek, austere, and offer a soft symphony of cascading water. They’ve visible, but ironically people don’t always realize they’re actually floor waterfalls until they get a little closer. 

One of the best uses of floor waterfalls is in a dentist’s office. Fear of the dentist is a common affliction among adults and children. The only thing worse than seeing the dentist is waiting for the dentist. When floor fountains are installed in the waiting room, it affords an immediate sense of calm. Imagine the difference between waiting to see your dentist in a stark, four-walled room with nothing but beige walls and a few magazines to look at, and a waiting room designed with softly cascading floor waterfalls. Which one would you rather be in? This is how an indoor floor fountain can make all the difference in the world.

Tip #6: Beautiful Fountains Use Less Water

Don't water fountains waste a lot of water? You’re a professional, but maybe you’re also a parent, an expert golfer, someone who appreciates the intricacies of a good mystery novel, or a weekend artist. You understand the importance of conducting your life (both at home and at work) in an environmentally conscious way. Is that why you hesitate to purchase floor fountains for your office?  

It’s important to understand that floor fountains require very little water, recycling water through a pump. The pump is installed out of sight, carrying water up and out of the unit into a cascading flow, then back down and around for another ride. While you will have to periodically change the water, indoor floor fountains require very little maintenance and use very little precious water.

There’s a misconception that indoor fountains (especially the larger wall fountains) require hookup to an outside water source. That’s simply not the case. Just like their smaller counterparts, large-scale indoor fountains reuse the same water over and over again.

If you’re worried about losing water over the sides of the fountain through excessive splashing, you have nothing to fear. High-quality floor fountains are very efficient and process water gently through the unit.  Large-scaled floor fountains require less refilling because they generally start with more water in them to begin with. Yes, some water has to be used, but you can rest assured that nothing will be wasted.

Tip #7: A Floor Fountain for your Personal Oasis

What type of fountain should I install in my personal home oasis?  Imagine a room in your house free from the glare of a flat screen television, away from the hum of the dishwasher, or the complaints of teenagers. Imagine an oasis that you don’t have to pay anything to join, travel long distances to get to, or share with anybody else. Having such a spot isn’t out of the question. All that’s required is an empty room (anyone in the family gone off to college?), some comfortable furniture, soft music, and a lighted floor fountain. 

Floor fountains don’t have to break the bank. In fact, there are many discount fountains to choose from for under $500. Typically these are usually stock items that cannot be customized in any way. However, if you’re in the mood to splurge on a unique centerpiece, consider a slate floor fountain or perhaps a lighted model.

There are many options available and only you can choose the perfect floor fountain for your room and lifestyle. Discount tabletop fountains can double as floor fountains, although the effect isn’t as dramatic. The best way to create a dramatic and impressive backdrop for your own personal oasis is to invest in a top-quality indoor floor fountain.

When you weigh the price of your mental health against the price of a fountain, it’s hard to consider anything less.

Tip #8: Romance in the Rain Relived with Indoor Floor Fountains

Will an indoor floor fountain remind me of the rain?  Nobody likes to be stranded in a rainstorm, but everyone seems to love the romance that rainfall brings. Whether you’re taking a nap with the soothing rain beating against the windows or huddled beneath the protective cover of an umbrella, rain isn’t always the horrible event people make it to be.  

One of the allures of a stylish indoor floor fountain is the sense of being caught in a rainstorm without getting wet. Any fountain will provide that affect, but there’s something very realistic about a large floor standing waterfall.The sound of the water effects will remind you of a steady, light rain slipping over beach rocks at the cottage.

Planting short, house-friendly tropical plants in the base of the indoor floor fountain will add your own personal touch to the centerpiece. Be wary of climbing vines or high-maintenance plants. Cacti are ideal because of their low maintenance requirements. Plants should never detract form the look and feel of the indoor floor fountain, but should enhance it.
