Before you decide on a water feature for the inside or outside of your home, you need to determine what goal you have. Some things to consider include:
Position: There are some water features that need to be easy to get to, but still away from any falling debris, such as leaves.
Reflections: Be sure to avoid any plant growth that may block the primary viewpoint.
Proportion: If you choose a water feature that is too big or too small, it may look out of place.
Dramatic waterfall: Do you want the ability to see the waterfall from a distance? The design should also help to catch all the splashes that occur to minimize the water that is lost.
Style: If your house has a modern look, you should keep this style intact with the water feature you choose to install.
Indoors: A quality indoor water feature design needs to keep factors such as humidity levels and quality top of mind.
If you take some time to work with the professionals to design the water feature you want on paper, it will help you figure out a rough estimate of how much it may cost. Make sure you don’t forget to factor in other costs, such as delivery charges, stone, additional materials, and tools that are needed to handle the project.
