The uses for water features in the home are endless, from small accent pieces to room dividers. Read on to learn how and where to use water features indoors. You may be inspired to make use of these unusual features in your own home.

Get a Zen vibe

Indoor Water Feature Zen Style

Reflective pools make great meditation spaces.

One of the most classic home styles for indoor water features is Zen style. With Zen, anything natural helps create the soothing, relaxing feeling that defines Zen style. Water features may be used to form indoor meditative ponds or to complement an indoor Zen garden. You can use water features to create peace in unusual spaces, such as the previously unused area beneath the stairs in the photo above.

Fountain walls are a good use of previously unused wall space.

One of the most popular ways to use indoor water features is the wall fountain. These remain a common indoor water feature because they don’t take up any floor space, yet they add a relaxing bubbling sound and attractive visuals.

Wall fountains tend to work well in homes with natural, rich textures like deep woods and green walls, since the elemental nature of the water feature adds to the natural feel. They also work well in a high-class style, since a continually flowing water feature denotes a feeling of luxury.

Fill in unused floor space

Earlier we touched on the fact that water features can make use of unused space, but that doesn’t mean they have to go unnoticed. The fountain above demonstrates how water features can be designed specifically for the space they occupy. The narrow design of the water feature makes it great for use under the stairs, without compromising visual interest — just take a look at the bright river rocks.

Just because this particular water feature is situated beneath stairs doesn’t mean it’s not part of the space as a whole. It works well as an accent in a dining space, creating ambiance for the diners.
