Not many people consider an indoor water fountain an important part of the interior design, simply because this is not too common in most cultures from Portugal to Korea. But, the indoor fountain has been in use for hundreds and thousands of years in the world’s hottest regions and has many health benefits for a relaxed lifestyle.
Water fountains are beautiful and trendy and creates a relaxed atmosphere for the interior of the home and office. Many of the finest modern designs in domestic and commercial property feature a strategically placed fountain for their important aesthetic qualities. The last decade has seen an increase in the applications of indoor water fountains and we expect this trend will continue.
Mental Benefits: Relaxing Sound and De-stressing
Studies have been made by the scientific as well as the tourist community. It seems that the best solution to the stressed mind and nervous soul is a trip to the lakes, rivers and oceans. The sound of water babbling against rocks or crashing against the shore line connects with the inner person in nurturing and soothing way.
There are indoor fountains made to replicate the sound of rushing water with arrangements and materials that can be heard across the home or office building. These typically feature a flow control valve so you can choose between a gentle trickle or the mighty Niagara Falls experience.
There is hardly anyway around it, unless you pack up shop and head out to the deep wilderness you will be subject to the blaring car horns, twanging electronica and Wagnerian disputes between neighbors. Unless you invest in sound deadening materials you will likely be distracted from work, awoken from slumber and have the gentle lull of your Saturday morning shattered by the roar of neighborhood kids having a Birthday Celebration.
White noise devices are increasingly popular as they can help to blot out a large portion of the noise and allow the individual a measure of peace amid the raucous urban scene. The indoor waterfall provides a superior quality of white noise, in addition to suppressing the noises from outside, it gently masks them in a refreshing and relaxing gurgle of running water.
With this in mind, there is hardly a better place to set up your wall water feature for your home than in the bedroom, where the sounds can reduce your stress levels and allow you to better relax for sleep. This will allow you to have better sleep at night and wake feeling relaxed and calm in the morning.
Physical Health: Purer Air & Humidity
There are two ways that an indoor water fountain can help you live a happier and healthier life. The presence of running water in an environment naturally reduces the levels of dust wafting through the air. Furthermore, negative ions are released into the air by the running water and this makes the quality of air much higher. This clean air is fresher and in the office or work space, it can help keep the mind active and oxygenized during long work days.
After this benefit, water fountains inside the home also allow the interior environment to have a bit of moisture circulating and this keeps the air in the home easier to breathe and eliminates the issues of nose bleeds in the morning typical in cold dry regions.
With this in mind, there is hardly a better place to set up your water fall than in the bedroom, where the sounds can reduce your stress levels and allow you to better relax for sleep. This will allow you to have better sleep at night and wake feeling relaxed and calm in the morning. Of course, this can be accomplished with a humidifier, but can you really compare the aesthetics of the two options?
