The addition of any water fountain, whether it be an indoor or outdoor fountain, adds tremendous pizzaz and beauty as well as a focal point wherever it is situated.The majority of the fountains bought are for outdoor use, but we are seeing more and more being added to indoor decor, in the way of floor units or wall hangings.The gentle sound of the running water allows for a very tranquil and soothing environment in the home.

Outdoor fountains are typically much larger in stature as the size should be in proportion to its surrounding area.There are a multitude of different types of fountains, which fall into various catergories. One's choice should be according to the style and theme of the surrounding landscaping, as well as how it is to be featured.Whether it be the crashing of the ocean waves, the fast running river or the gentle stream, the sound of water is extremely thought provoking in an exciting, but serene way.The water cascading down the fountain will conjure up the same outdoor feeling.

A very important factor, when choosing a fountain, are the weather conditions in your area.Harsh winters can cause deterioration over time, but if drained and covered in the winter, the integrity will remain intact for a number of years.The construction and material used in the building process is also extremely important for the above reasons, as well as the weight, for easier portability.

Going back centuries in time the main builders of fountains were the Greeks and the Romans.The main reason for building them was to provide water for the residents of the various towns. These fountains were typically located in the center of the city as a means of convenience, but also provide a gathering spot for the town folk to come and socialize.These fountains were not only extremely large in stature, but were very beautiful and ornate. These works of art have withstood the test of time and can still be seen in perfect working order in Italy and Greece as well as other countries. Many of them are now historic landmarks.

Moving forward in time, fountains became a status symbol for a number of large corporations and businesses as well as the very wealthy home and estate owners. The medium of construction for these huge fountains was various types of stone and marble. The cost of the stone as well as the labor to fabricate these fountains made it impossible for the average person to afford. This is no longer the case today! Prices have dropped dramatically as the use of light weight metal, glass and synthetic fabrics are now being used.We are seeing the popularity of both indoor and outdoor fountains continuing to rise and expect this trend to keep going up.
