There are a variety of water features to choose from to add a unique piece of art to any home or commercial establishment, including large scale fountains, small ponds, architectural fountains and waterfalls.
Water always catches our eye. It doesn’t matter if it’s a calm river, a flowing brook, a large lake, the roaring ocean or a beautiful fountain; we often stop and look at the beauty that comes from the water that’s part of our daily lives. Water brings on a peaceful feeling when we’re around it, and it can be due to its calming flow when it’s an indoor fountain, or it can be due to the roaring sound of a large waterfall with its beauty in nature. Whether it’s simple or big, loud or quiet, water has a similar, peaceful and calming effect on many of us, so it’s no wonder we often want to bring the look and feel of water into our lives by making it a part of our homes and businesses.
Types of Water Features
Water features can range anywhere from fountains to man-made streams to small fish ponds, but no matter what type of water feature you’re looking at, it’s a piece of modern art that is unique and attention grabbing.
Large scale fountains may be an option for a commercial building, whereas a small scale fountain may be better suited for a home. If you own a spa, you may choose a medium-sized, calming fountain for your business.
For outdoor lovers, a small pond with some nice stones may be an option whereas a home owner may choose to have a man-made stream or pondless water feature to add to the ambiance of the location. A small fish pond may be suitable for either a home or an outdoor commercial establishment, as well.
Architectural fountains and floating fountains are a nice touch to any commercial dwelling, or if you already have a fountain at home, you may opt for adding some fountain décor and accessories to change or spruce things up a bit.
Purchasing Water Features
Water features may be easy to install on your own depending on the size of the feature you choose. However, it’s always good to get some expert advice when purchasing water features. Look for businesses that have a large variety so you have options and can rest well knowing you chose the right water feature for your home or business.
If you do choose to go the ‘do-it-yourself’ route, get as much detail and information from the company as you can so your installation goes as smoothly as possible, and make sure you have all of the parts you need for correct installation. Parts and products may include pumps, liners, filters, jets, nozzles, piping, stones or chemicals to sanitize your water if needed. In addition, look for an establishment with good customer support in the event that you need to call and ask questions during installation or down the road if an issue arises.
Water features are a nice touch to add a good energy to the esthetics of a residential or commercial dwelling, and there are several options to choose from to add beauty, peacefulness and uniqueness to any location.
