Designing Your Space Around a Wall Fountain
Posted by on
Wall fountains can make for beautiful focal points that tie an entire space together. Besides being attractive, wall fountains also fill the space with the calming sound of running water. More and more people are beginning to use this type of fountain for their homes, and you may be jumping on with the idea.
Unfortunately, if this is your first time installing a wall fountain, you may not know exactly how to utilize the space in the best way possible. There are a ton of specific ideas on the internet that you can follow, but it’s best practice to learn the general concepts behind designing your space around a wall fountain before you settle on something permanent.
Let’s take a look at some of the ways you can design your space around a wall fountain.
Pair with Plants
A fountain naturally goes well with greenery. You can easily pair it with plants to make it look even better. For wall fountains specifically, you can use climbing vines or flowers, or tall plants that frame the fountain.
If your fountain is inside, you can surround it with either real or fake plants. If you want a more authentic look, consider using real plants, even with the added maintenance. This also helps to create a more natural ambience with an additional smell of greenery.
Add Some Color
Sometimes, wall fountains can seem drab, especially if they’re made of stone or concrete. This is a great opportunity to add a pop of color to your space! For modern concrete or stone wall fountains, you may want to consider painting your walls bright or bold colors to accent the natural color of the fountain and create an eye-catching look.
Add Some Décor
You can also surround your fountain with décor to add more color or draw the eye a little more. Of course, you don’t want to overdo it, because that will take away from the look of the fountain itself. Choose décor that complements the look of the fountain and use it sparingly in a way that draws more attention to the space.
Keep the Room Simple
If your fountain is particularly eye-catching, which many are, then you might be able to let it do all the talking itself. If that’s the case, don’t be afraid to keep the space extra simple. Sometimes, the less fluff you have in a room, the better. That way, you can let visitors in the space take time to admire the wall fountain and the soothing experience it brings to your home.
Do It Your Way
At the end of the day, the way you design the space around your fountain is entirely your decision. Make sure you are happy with the way it’s designed. You’ll want to be happy with your space, and if you are, you can rest knowing that you’ll enjoy your wall fountain each time you’re around it.
