Most wall fountains are simple wall structures with clean lines which allow the water to fall down the face into a special basin that is placed below. They can be used inside the house, or as an outdoor water feature. The larger models of wall fountains are usually placed on the floor right next to the wall, and the smaller wall water fountains can be mounted on the wall.
The most common material choices include copper wall fountains, slate fountains, and some contemporary and art wall fountains include marble as one of the material options. However, the material of the feature does not have to be the same as the material the basin, the pool or the tray placed bellow is made of.
When deciding the position of the wall water fountain inside the house there are several convenient options. If the available space is limited a smart thing to do is to hang the fountain onto the wall so it will be away from the path of the people, children, and the pets moving around the house and create a fantastic new art piece. Wall fountains are usually lightweight and hanging them on the wall is not hard, but since the water can make them heavy, the hanging hardware should be sufficient enough to hold all that weight and typically a studded wall is ideal.
Another great way to use all the benefits of the wall water fountains in a limited space is to build it into the wall. There are custom water features that can be made pre ordered to fit just any desired area. You can also consider getting a floor standing model, especially if they are heavier. It can be placed next to a wall for more space to move around, or in a corner next to the entrance to make a great first impression when entering the house.
At the end, no matter where you decide to position your wall fountain, it is very important to take good fountain care and maintain it regularly for it to be able to provide years of soothing relaxation.
