One of the best comforts of the modern world is choice. We can design and arrange our environments to suit our needs and desires. With this in mind, even with all the great modern design out there, we can still incorporate natural aesthetics into our living and work spaces. Natural design not only looks great, but it can also bring a calming effect to most spaces. Wall fountains have a lot to offer in this vein because they combine moving water and a lot of various materials. With so many options, it is easy to find a natural look for your home.
Fountain faces come in a lot of different materials. Stone faces are great for natural décor. You can find fountains with authentic marble in a variety of colors like green, black, and brown. These are great earth tones that help create a serene environment. If you are looking for a more cost-effective option that still looks great, slate also comes in a lot of the same colors. To make hanging wall fountains easier, some fountains offer a lightweight slate option. All these are great options, and it really comes down to which color or material looks good to you.
The fountain trim is another important part of the design. Copper goes well with most earthy colors. Stainless steel can also look nice, but it gives a more modern look. It can be used, however, with mirror or glass fountain faces be used to accent other parts of the room. For instance, placing them near plants will reflect them, multiplying their effect. However, you are safer going with a copper trim and stone face if you are looking to augment the natural look of your room rather than accent it.
Another option to look out for is a pebble bed for your fountain. These are natural stones that sit at the bottom of the trim. This not only looks great, but it also enhances the sound of your fountain. Half of the natural appeal of fountains is their great noise. It is calming and adds great ambience. The pebble bed will give your fountain the sound of a babbling brook.
There are a lot of options when it comes to water fountains. Do not be afraid to really look around and find a custom combination that works for you and your space.
