Water has always been a necessity in life and in recent years it has developed into a design for the home that is not only attractive, but quite therapeutic. Water fountains or water features for the home or office are a big thing in the home or workplace nowadays, and many homeowners and business owners are finding that it is a relaxing and soothing therapy that makes the environment that surrounds them a place that provides peace.

Water has always been the great healer. For centuries, water has been used as a therapy to heal the sick. Hydrothermal therapy is a method of treatment that is used in many cultures to heal disease and injury. In the traditional Chinese and Native American cultures, water is an important ingredient in their healing systems.

Water features are a therapeutic part of the home or business and one that provides beauty and enjoyment. They are used to decorate many different spaces from all sizes, whether a simple tabletop or nightstand, or a free standing water feature.

indoor water features, as well as, outdoors, are made of many different materials and shoppers will find that they have the choice to purchase not only different designs but designs made from different materials. Water features are made of stone, marble, terracotta, clay and copper, and, they are not only for the home and office but they are also for outdoors.

Free standing water features are absolutely beautiful and you'll find them in designs such as cascade fountain, which is normally made of stone and are beautiful indoors and out. Cascade fountains are uniquely designed and as with all water features, the water gently moves from one part of the fountain to another, in a gentle rhythmic way that is almost a healing art in itself.

Other types of water features include the water walls, which are often made of copper or glass and these types of water features, can to, be absolutely exquisite. Glass water walls include beautiful mosaics that inject color and style to all environments and stunning images on the glass that and come in many different designs that reflect the beauty of the image and the peacefulness of the water. Copper water walls are also exquisite and has the ability to use natural light to reflect through the water in a manner that is truly magnificent and one that owners could gaze into for hours.

Water face walls, fountain balls, and stones are also popular water features. Water features do not require a lot of maintenance. In fact, an occasional clean and removal of algae and top up of water is all that is required to upkeep the water feature. The pump must always be fully submerged in the water, and the inlet kept clear of dirt, algae and other large items such as rocks and pebbles, to ensure the function of the fountain. Water features can be priced in all ranges that run into the thousands for the freestanding fountains to under fifty dollars for a water feature for the table top.
