Most of us think we know everything about indoor fountains and the benefits they provide. These fountains look fancy and stylish. They make a relaxing sound. But there are also hidden benefits of such fountains you may have never thought about.
Two major benefits that are almost unknown are the negative ions and the Feng Shui properties. These two benefits make indoor fountains the perfect choice of home decor that mixes beauty with function.
Floor fountains are way more than basic decorative elements. Add an indoor waterfall to help improve the quality of the air in your room. Air is electrically charged with both types of ions, positive and negative. Household appliances such as refrigerators, microwave ovens, and TV sets emit positive ions.
By inhaling these ions day after day, you may experience a decrease of your energy levels, and of your overall health and well-being. On the contrary, negative ions are good for you. They can be found in fresh air, and running water. By having a water fountain running in your office, you’ll benefit from its soothing sounds, as well as of its negative ions emissions.
Fountains are also one of the most important elements in Feng Shui design. Feng Shui is an ancient Chinese art of arranging a space to promote the free flowing of the vital energy, also known as ‘Chi’.
Feng Shui is based on the principle of balancing the five elements to achieve harmony. Whenever one of these elements is either too much or not enough, the result will be negative chi, and therefore problems in the corresponding areas of your life.
Many water fountains are designed with Feng Shui principles in mind, so you can use them to create a harmonious living space in your home or office. If you don’t know how to position your water fountain to reap the most Feng Shui benefits, you may want to search the web for information or to hire a consultant to help you.
Wall fountains can make a nice addition to your home, regardless of your preferences of color, style, and size. You can install an indoor water fountain in each and every room of your house, in order to enjoy the comforting sound of running water wherever you are.
