There are few things more serene and relaxing than listening to the gentle trickle of running water. Water fountains are a beautiful addition to any commercial or residential building and are often used in exterior design. But, don’t forget that they can be used in interior architectural design as well! An indoor stone fountain offers many benefits that are both aesthetically pleasing and advantageous for health. If you have been considering implementing a stone fountain into your home’s interior architectural design, below are 5 reasons we think it is a great idea!
5 Benefits of Indoor Stone Water Fountains
- Stone water fountains are carved from a variety of stone types, colors, and patterns. Their unique carvings and styling make them a beautiful addition to any home, naturally enhancing the architectural style and décor that surrounds them. When you have a stone water fountain in your room, it makes everything else around it look more beautiful!
- Natural carved stone elements add a tremendous amount of value when used in architectural design. Other fountain types made of plaster or plastic may give you the benefit of trickling water but they will not look as beautiful or add as much value to your home as carved indoor natural stone water fountains.
- We all could use a little more relaxation and stress relief in our lives. Time after time, the sound of running or trickling water has been shown to naturally relax and de-stress humans. Additionally, because the sound of running water provides a natural ambient white noise, it drowns out other neighborhood or household noises, allowing you to fully maximize relaxation when at home.
- Air Purification
- When water moves, as it does through a fountain, it creates natural ions that are released into the air. This replenishes the air’s negative ions which can increase the flow of oxygen to the brain. Additionally, dirt is naturally pulled out of the air and into the water in the fountain, naturally cleaning the room’s air supply.
- Excessive humidity may be uncomfortable but we all live a better life if our air has some humidity in it. It hydrates skin and adds humidity to the air which can be particularly beneficial in the winter months. As an added bonus, if you have plants in the room, the natural humidity will boost their health as well!
