You have seen them in high-end home and garden magazines, Internet decorating sites, and maybe at a friends home, those sublime statements of relaxation and refined good tastes with a touch of nature-brought-indoors included; interior waterfalls. And now you want one for yourself.
Nothing soothes the senses and calms the nerves like decorative interior fountains and water features. And to have one indoors makes enjoying this method of combined decor and relaxation a year-round treat. Interior wall fountains have made their debut, and people are flocking by the droves to have them installed.
Made from an array of materials, including slate, marble, copper, and other popular organic products (and also offered in synthetic, resin-based materials), interior fountains and water features can be made either by an ambitious and talented do-it-yourselfer or be purchased from a generous selection of online artists and craftsmen.
Even home center stores like Lowes and Home Depot are now offering kits the homeowner can purchase and put together at their own convenience.
Budget- What Budget?
Costs depend, of course, on how large and elaborately made an interior waterfall you are wanting and whether or not you purchase one ready-made or opt to build one yourself. Online sellers are asking (and getting!) up to $6,000 and more for wall fountains with dimensions of 69 inch high by 19 inchwide by 6 inches in depth.
Behemoth wall water features of this dimension weigh in at close to 800 pounds when made from such materials as real slate and copper. And even with free shipping, this type of outlay demands careful consideration.
Small is Beautiful
Alternatively, you can always choose one of the smaller interior wall fountains or even make one yourself, as well. If you are handy with an acetylene torch and tools in general, this should take no more than a few days work. The ready-made smaller interior fountains and water features usually begin at around $100 and go on up to $400 or $500, again, depending on how elaborate a design you select.
So go ahead and take the plunge. Look into what it takes to have an indoor waterfall or other water feature placed in your home. After a little research, deciding which one is appropriate for you and your lifestyle, and then installing it, all you have to do enjoy it.
