Health Benefits of Indoor Fountains

People, usually, don’t consider including indoor fountains into their home’s décor mainly because they are not very common in most cultures. However, what people don’t realize is that indoor fountains can create many positive effects on your health and lifestyle. Water fountains, indoor and wall, are beautiful, relaxing and trendy. In an effort to bring the outdoors into the house, people around the world are adding water fountains to the interior of their homes and offices. In the last decade, there has been an increase in the installation of indoor fountains and wall fountains due to their aesthetic appeal and more importantly health benefits.

It is a scientifically established fact that sounds of running water produce relaxing effects and a zen atmosphere. It makes your mind relax and soothes your soul. The sound of flowing water affects us subconsciously, hence causing a soothing influence on the body, mind and spirits. There are many indoor fountains that can produce sound strong enough to be heard throughout your home or office. They are usually equipped with flow control valve so that you can set the level of the sound of flowing water, which suits your preference.

Often, you will find yourself subjected to loud noises such as traffic, people talking, music, etc. from your surroundings. Unless, you house or office is sound proofed, chances are these unwarranted sounds – noise pollution really, can interfere with your work or sleep. Indoor fountains provide a great white sound to drown the noise and enable you to work efficiently and sleep well. While suppressing the noises, it naturally calms you so that you are at your best.

In addition, water is known to reduce your stress levels. The sound of water can reduce the stress causing hormones and relax your muscles and joints. If in your bedroom, it can improve your sleep quality and generally your mood. Hence, in the stressful life that most people live today, indoor fountain can be a perfect way to decompress and relax.

Physical Health: Purer Air & Humidity

There are two major physical health benefits that you can enjoy from an indoor fountain. First, water fountains purify and clean the air inside your home or office. Studies have shown that negative ions that are emitted into the air as water evaporates from your fountain cleanse the air and make it more refreshing for you to breadth. The clean air can enhance your concentration and improve your health. It eliminates dust and other irritants from the air and keeps the quality of air high.

Second, indoor fountains increase humidity in the air. In winters, the air becomes dry which causes irritation, nose bleeds and other health problems. As water evaporates from the fountain, humidity is released into the air. Hence, many people find indoor fountains a great source of humidity. Furthermore, it keeps your indoor air in balance and is a natural prevention for sickness. And it is more appealing and soothing than any electrical humidifier, complimenting your interior décor and style.

The health benefits offered by indoor fountains are worthwhile the investment you make in purchasing them. They add a dimension of style and beauty to your home décor while providing many health benefits, so that you enjoy a relaxing atmosphere and a healthy environment.

Indoor Wall Water Fountains [WaterfallNow]

WaterfallNow creates custom designer indoor wall water fountains using artificial rock. They look better than real rocks and cannot be purchased online.

Any desired size or shape

WaterfallNow’s rock water features are all custom hand-made. In the past we employed concrete and other methods but were unsatisfied. We wanted to create rocks that look better than the real thing. We developed a technique utilizing fibreglass that offers our clients with much more custom options to choose from. As a result of the lightweight design we are able to manipulate each hand-made rock panel to assemble a rock water wall fountain that looks natural and grabs people’s attention. The only limits are the ones we place on our own creativity.

Going “all-out”

Our indoor wall water fountains are truly one of a kind. They require little to no maintenance due to their simplistic design. We try to keep things as simple as possible. Once in a while we have our clients demanding something top of the line because they want to go “all-out” with their water feature. These are the projects that we look forward to working on because they look the best. Unfortunately having lost our old website domain along with the disappearance of our former web designer who moved to another country – we no longer have any sample photos of projects that we’ve worked on.

Lots of experience

WaterfallNow has a lot of experience in this area having worked on countless projects. Yes, that old waterfall on 152 Street was something we created. It was one of the first few projects that we ever built. Interestingly someone phones us and asked if they could purchase it. We agreed and it now sits in another location. Part of the reasoning behind that move was because it is not the best location in terms of safety. Too many cars were not paying attention to the street light turning green because they were busy watching the waterfall!

Artificial rock water walls

We create rock water walls using our hand-made rock panels. These are often created on-site as most large waterfalls are. While our specialty is in creating these in people’s backyards we have more recently experienced a demand for indoor water wall fountains. We did some research online and indeed found nothing for clients who want something big or specific, with custom options, and doesn’t require as much space as say a concrete application. While small pre-made water fountains look nice, they don’t compare to something built full-blown, all-out, on-site.

Indoor wall water fountains

WaterfallNow now has experience creating indoor wall water fountains using our artificial rock panels. While we can use concrete and other applications we prefer fibreglass because it is lightweight, requires less space, is customizable, can be moved or upgraded from year to year, and should something go wrong with the plumbing – is easy to fix. We find that our clients really enjoy the relaxing sounds of running water in their homes. It creates a great atmosphere for our clients to rest and unwind, also helping them get a more restful sleep.

This is especially popular with our clients who work from home or are retired. They get to enjoy the benefits all the time and some can’t imagine not having it around. When we say customized we literally mean customized. You can set the water feature to go on or off with a remote control switch and even adjust the sound or pressure of the flow of water. Maybe you prefer mist/fog over water? We can do that for you as well.

Considering getting a water feature for your home or business?

A home just isn’t a home without the soothing sounds of running water. Ask any one that has ever owned an indoor water feature and they will tell you how much better they feel throughout the day.

For those that want something outdoors but don’t want the hassle of maintenance we offer outdoor water features that require minimal maintenance. Just add water to our pondless or hidden waterfall rock features and you are good to go. They operate in all 4 seasons and you won’t have to worry about cracking or spending thousands of dollars each year on maintenance – unless your yard has a lot of trees that shed leaves. In that case we can apply a screen to the top of the water source to keep the leaves from affecting the water pump.

We order our supplies outside of Canada so should you have a specific request simply let us know in advance and we will place a special order for you. Give WaterfallNow a call.
