These are the top-5 styles of indoor fountains in current circulation:
These fountains could be 3D structures such as a rocky waterfall or a 2D experience of a paneled water cascade.
The trending style in this category is genuine rocks and pebbles assembled in an artistic manner and drilled into the wall with heavy-duty screws. The other popular style is paneled fountains with a glass, fiberglass, or acrylic panel mounted on the wall and water gliding on it with quiet serenity. You will also come across steel, copper, or aluminum panels used for this style.
You will choose a wall-mounted fountain if you want to conserve floor space, avoid cumbersome floor plumbing, and prevent hazardous electrical wiring through the floor. Also, if you want a unique substitute for wall art!
Wall-mounted indoor fountains are best fits for compact-to-medium-sized rooms that are modern or post-modern in their décor. Airy interiors with flowing curtains, light furniture, and pastel carpets on vinyl flooring -- that's the type of ideal interior for these fountains.
Also known as floor fountains, they stand proudly in a corner or at the center of your living area, adding a touch of grace, elegance, and tranquil calmness.
They are larger than the wall-mounted fountains and are available in a vast range of designs and materials. Some contemporary style hacks are:
- Real river and ravine rocks and sea pebbles
- Cascading glass panel waterfalls
- Fiberglass designer fountains
- Multi-level waterfalls from pots or animal mouths
- Ornate decorative art fountains
These fountains have a concealed water reservoir at the base whose sturdy foundation gives them stability.
Free-standing fountains are usually placed in a corner or at the center of the room. Visually, they are imposing and tend to grab attention by overpowering the other room décor. You will want them in your home if you have a relatively large space, a lot of indoor flora, and not an extravaganza of other décor and furniture.
The smallest and the lightest of indoor fountains, but no less elegant and enchanting -- that's your tabletop fountain. Be it a flowerpot fountain, an ornate floral design, a water bowl, an abstract form, or a 3-level cascade from one fish's mouth to the other… you will get to choose from a great diversity of designs.
Tabletop fountains are good as a décor accessory and not as a primary piece of décor. You will need complementary artworks, wall paintings, sitting arrangement, planters, and corner décor to go with it. Hence, select a tabletop fountain as if you were choosing a tabletop lampshade or statuette. You will need a dedicated tabletop and that much of space at a strategic location in the room.
