The soothing sound of gurgling water brings serenity and life into the region it is located and transforms it into a peaceful retreat like environment. Selecting different types of fountains for different locations around your house both indoors and outdoors can become an exhilarating expedition as you hunt through garage sales and second hand stores for inexpensive deals. While tabletop fountains in beautiful shapes and designs can set up anywhere in the house to match your home decor, fountains made of stone, metal and other materials can add beauty and vitality to the garden.

Here is a collection of artistic and creative fountains that have been arranged as part of home decor by our designers to enhance architectural beauty.

This jet style fountain is among the most preferred designs among homeowners across the world keen to
bring in water elements within the house. This colorful fountain allows you to set the height of water jets and as the water falls only with a small circumference it is perfect for a large living room or dining area. A raised platform like a pool has to be made around the jets for the water to collect and circulate.

2. Traditional Stone fountain

A large garden with lush greenery, colorful flower beds and a wide stone garden path would be incomplete without a stone fountain as this.
