To add sound, beauty, and humidity for a harmonious and tranquil space water fountains are the best option. The trickling sounds of water can lower your stress levels and calm your mind. To purify the air, the circulating water releases negative ions just like with the ocean and waterfalls. The circulating water produces the negative ions, which improve feelings of well-being as well. Humidity is created by the water which moistens the air for plants and humans.

How to Decorate a Room with Water Fountains & Plants

Fountains come in a variety of sizes and shapes

Fountains are now available in a variety of sizes and shapes. If you are looking for a tall fountain you can buy floor fountains that sit on the floor. If placed near a wall they will look beautiful. To hang on the wall there’s also wall-mounted fountains. But you need wall hangers and correct tools to mount wall fountains, which can be quite heavy as well, so make sure to get them installed by a professional. Tabletop fountains will suit big as well as small spaces. They will fit perfectly in any room.

The tabletop fountains fit easily on a desk, shelf, side table, or anything with a horizontal surface near an electrical outlet. Fountains are now available in fibre reinforced plastic, which are not too heavy. They may look as if they are made of stone but they are not. There are fountains in the shape of a lotus flower, which is a beauty to behold. There’s also fountains made with different materials such as copper, stainless steel, ceramics and stone. You can choose a fountain depending on the decor of your home.

Water fountains add the element of water to a space and according to Feng Shui it represents abundance, wealth, and cash flow. You can place water fountains near the entrance and make it a focal point.     

Maintain them well

Whichever type of fountain you choose make sure to maintain them well. A water fountain with slime, and dirty water filled with algae is an ugly site.

So make sure to scrub them as soon as they show up so they don’t become permanent. To inhibit the growth of slime, algae, and other microorganisms you can also add hydrogen peroxide to the water. It will keep everything running smoothly. Also, to prevent algae growth, place the fountain away from sunlight. Make sure to check the water levels regularly because the pump should never run dry. It will shorten the life of the pump if it does run dry.

Fountains and plants are a perfect match

Plants go well with fountains. The plants provide oxygen and the water fountain provides negative ions. If you have a large fountain you can grow plants inside them. You can place potted plants near a small fountain. It will look really beautiful when surrounded by potted plants.
