Choosing the Right Tabletop Fountain For Your Home
You’d be hard pressed to find a more attractive or popular interior decoration than a table top water fountain. And here is why: they are chic, comforting, and act as natural humidifiers. They are a subtle addition to any office or home setting that’s always welcomed and admired. The only difficulty is having to choose from the ever-expanding variety of tabletop water features. It can be a hard process deciding which water feature is right for your environment.
Here are three things to think about when considering your options:
Take a real good look at the shapes of your furniture, the layout of the room, and any other accessory that might be near the eventual location of your tabletop water feature. Are the hard materials and surfaces in the room made of organic material like wood or stone, or are they glass, plastic or metal? Does the room consist of sharp corners or rounded edges? It is also very important to think about your color scheme. Most fountains come in neutral colors, but it wouldn’t be too hard to find a water feature that complimented your color scheme to really bring the room together.
For some people, finding a tabletop water feature with the right sound conflicts with their choice in style. You’ll have to decide which is more important and ultimately go with your gut. If you’re hankering for the sound of bubbling or falling water in your home, there are two major factors that come into play: height and speed. The higher and faster the flowing water is, the louder it will be. So if you’re not into loud crashing water, you should go with a lower profile design. But if you want the trickling sound of water to compliment your reading room, consider a step-down waterfall design. It is always a wise decision to purchase a fountain with a variable flow speed that allows you to control the velocity and sound of your waterfall.
These days, you can turn your tabletop water fountain into a visual spectacle. Between fountain lights, soft chimes, and mirrored surfaces, you’d be surprised what fountains these days can do. This isn’t to say that your living area or office setting needs this kind of pizzazz, but you should always consider the possibility. Take the time to imagine your space with certain features instead of always wondering what if. Sometimes the best things in life come from the least expected places.
