I love fountains. I have two fountains in my home and am always looking at bringing in another one. Here are tips on how to incorporate fountains into your home with the feng shui practices.
Fountains are lovely because the quiet burbling promotes a soothing feeling. They help add humidity to the air. They are beautiful to look at. They come in a such a variety of shapes and sizes that you can find one to perfectly match your space. Be sure to focus on the pump noise. A grinding pump noise can quickly wear you down. Be sure to get the quietest pump you can find.
I recommend getting a larger size so you're not having to refill the water eight times a day. With my office fountain I need to top it off about once a week. That is a good length of time for me to go.
A beautiful part of fountains is that they can match exactly what you want for a part of a room. If you want a red, metal object, you can find a fountain like that. If you want a black, stone object, you can also find a fountain like that. So whatever your desire in terms of material and color, you're likely to be able to find a fountain that matches your needs.
It's great to have a fountain somewhere near your front door. That helps to draw positive energy into your home.
Many practitioners advise against having a fountain in your bedroom, as they feel the burbling noise will keep you awake. I'm the opposite. I adore the gentle burbling as soothing "white noise" to drown out barking dogs and other such things. So this will depend greatly on you and the type of fountain you have.
