Indoor and outdoor fountains are more than just beautiful additions to your home. A fountain can improve your quality of life, stimulate good moods, and add value to the overall worth of your home. Here are some of the reasons why the popularity of fountains is on a steady rise, and why you should get a water fountain for your home.

Here are 8 Benefits of having Fountains at your home:

It has a calming effect on you

Fountains are not just symbols of grandeur. The sounds created by a water fountain are proven to reduce stress and anxiety. It has a calming effect on your mind and body. This is the reason why doctors’ offices, waiting areas of luxury resorts and business establishments, and spas have water fountains. You should be mindful of its beauty and sound to enjoy its positive effects.

Stimulate good moods

Fountains help create a tranquil mood that will transform any room into a peaceful oasis. Adding an outdoor garden fountain to your patio, porch or outdoor living space will enhance your enjoyment of the area tremendously.

Natural humidifier

The air in our homes can become dry especially during winter. This can cause problems for you and your plants. Indoor water fountains add moisture to the room.

The focal point of an outdoor setting

Fountains can be as simple or as elaborate as your heart desires, and are the focal points of an outdoor setting. Many of these fountains are fully self-contained, with everything but water and power to get you up and running.

Add value to your home

When you have a lake or pond on your property, the water, without proper movement or filtration, can become stagnant. An outdoor water fountain is an important addition to a pond or lake as it can cycle the water in the pond or lake, which will prevent stagnation of water. Adding an outdoor water fountain to the pond or lake can also increase the value of your property.

Better than birdbath

An outdoor fountain can attract birds. It is a constant source of clean water for them. Unlike a standard birdbath the water movement in the fountain reduces the build-up of bacteria and algae. Birds will be able to drink, bathe and preen in them. That fact that it has running water and not still water makes it even more attractive than a birdbath.

A source of fresh water for your dog

Like birds, your dogs too love to drink fresh water from outdoor water fountains. Since the water is constantly flowing, you don’t have to worry about cleaning them all the time. On the other hand, if you keep water in a bowl, it would collect all kinds of dirt and you will have to clean it frequently.

Will attract customers

If you own restaurants and cafes with sidewalk, an outdoor fountain with its cascading water will attract customers. It is so tranquil and inviting that your customers will love coming to your cafe over and again.

This is some great information, and I appreciate your point that an outdoor fountain can serve as a focal point. I’ve been looking for some inspirations for improving my landscape, and one thing I would like to do is add a focal point. A fountain would be a good way to achieve this and to add a calming element to my yard. Thanks for the great post! http://www.mcclendonsdecor.com/listing.asp?dept_id=30030&nopopup=1

I was just looking out into my yard when I was thinking about how it’s missing something before reading this post for water fountains. It’s good to know that they can make a good focal point for an outdoor setting. Perhaps my yard needs an interesting garden fountain to use as a nice focal point to help pull my landscaping together. Looking into different fountains and how they’ll look in my yard seems like a good idea so that I can know if that’s something that I should do for my yard. Thanks for posting this!
