Size Matters When Selecting an Indoor Water Fountain
If you keep up with our blog here at WaterGallery.net, you’re probably well aware of the benefits of owning an indoor water fountain. Along with their brilliant look and style, they also filter impurities from the air, create a more tranquil and relaxing environment, and they can reduce stress (which is something we can all use). However, it’s important to choose an indoor water fountain that’s the right size for your specific needs.
Indoor water fountains are produced in a variety of different sizes, ranging from less than a foot tall to well over 4 feet. Whether you intend to use it inside your home or place of business, you should decide exactly where you plan to install it. Perhaps you want to install it in the foyer of your home, or maybe you want to use it in the living room. These are just a couple areas that are commonly used for displaying indoor water fountains.
Once you’ve chosen an area, you should then measure it to see how much space is available. If there’s only 24″ of space (height) available in the foyer, then you obviously won’t be able to install a 4-foot water fountain. If you haven’t done so already, use a measuring tape to get the height, length and width (if necessary) of the desired space.
It should go without saying that larger indoor water fountains typically cost more than smaller ones. If you’re looking to purchase an indoor water fountain on a budget, it’s probably best to stick with the smaller models. They may not offer the same level of visibility, but they’re still a highly effective, budget-friendly way to decorate your home or place of business.
Size also plays a role in moving and installing indoor water fountains. The larger the fountain, the more difficult it is to move. Small fountains can oftentimes be moved by a single person, whereas some of the larger ones require two or more people to safely move.
The bottom line is that you factor size into your purchasing decision when choosing an indoor water fountain. Just because a fountain is large doesn’t necessarily mean it’s the best choice. Think about where it’s going to be used, how it’s going to be used, the surrounding colors, etc., and then choose the model that’s best suited for your needs.
