Shopping for a new indoor floor fountain doesn’t have to be hard despite the fact that there are so many features available on the current market. My goal with this article is to help you break down all this complexity into a few simple categories of features that will apply to people all across the spectrum of needs.
The first major category of considerations for buying a new indoor floor water fountain is aesthetic appeal. This category can include all sorts of things like the material that the fountain is made out of, the color, shape, as well as any extra features that would affect the immediate visual representation of the fountain to any of its viewers. Most people who are shopping for one of these fountains are generally doing so for a larger building such as an office or corporate headquarters. Because of this fact, these people may want to limit their shopping to fountains which give off a more modern and powerful look. On the other hand, small businesses which want to put on a family-friendly and caring face might instead choose to buy a fountain which is unassuming and friendly.
Generally speaking, hard, sharp angles give off a feeling of power and dominance while smooth curves come off as far more friendly. Keep this subtle aesthetic consideration firmly in mind when you’re shopping for the fountain because shape can have effects well beyond what many people realize!
On a related note, make sure to understand exactly how large of a fountain can fit into the desired space. It’s pretty easy to get wrapped up in how the fountain looks and operates, forgetting about the fact that it might not even fit in the space. Before you go shopping, take a moment to measure any spots in the building where you think the fountain might go. I would recommend measuring at least three or four prospective locations because you’d be surprised how easy it is to change your mind on where such a prominent water feature should be located when it’s actually sitting in front of you.
The last major consideration is material. It probably goes without saying, but a fountain that’s made out of marble is generally going to cost a lot more than one that is made out of a more commonly available material. However, this is not always the case because manufacturers frequently get cheap access to otherwise expensive materials and they pass the savings onto consumers like you. Because of this fact, keep an eye on wholesaler websites for home furnishings, paying special attention to high-quality indoor floor fountains that are being offered at a substantial discount.
There are an infinite number of aesthetic considerations to keep in mind when you’re looking for a new fountain for your home or office space (such as the best portable water softener to use with the fountain in order to avoid limescale), but the above few are undoubtedly the most important things to keep in mind if for no other reason than their affect on the final price of the product. Other smaller considerations, such as talking to your agent about how all of this fits in with your commercial insurance policy while certainly important to your final decision, or not going to make the difference of hundreds or thousands of dollars so those can be safely left until later!
