What You Need To Know About Water Walls
There’s nothing like the tumbling water of an indoor fountain to create a relaxing ambiance. Mimicking the soothing sounds of nature, an indoor waterfall helps your customers unwind as they spend time in your location. Whether you add one to an office, a lobby, a waiting room, a restaurant dining room or another space, you instantly make the area feel more peaceful. Are you thinking about adding an indoor water wall to your facility? Take time to consider the following:
Where to Place Your Indoor Water Wall
To reap the most benefits from an indoor waterfall, you need to pick the right location for it. It should be prominent enough to affect the overall atmosphere. At the same time, you don’t want it to detract from your decorating scheme, but rather to accent it. Some placements that work well include using one as a dividing wall to set apart a seating area or mounting one high to draw attention to the openness of a space. You can use an indoor waterfall fountain as a focal point like you might do with a fireplace, or you can mount it in the background of a reception area or office.

Types of Materials Available
Part of the appeal of a water wall is how many possibilities it provides. Take your pick of freestanding, wall-mounted or frameless designs, for example. Go with a fountain that’s fully enclosed or pick one that’s open — depending on what you like. Water walls can be made of various materials, and there are lots of design options to allow you to create the right look for your facility. At Midwest Tropical, our craftsmen are skilled at working with stainless steel, copper and other metals. We can also use acrylic, glass, tile, stone and other natural materials to build custom water walls. We can even add LED lighting to showcase the cascading water in your design.
What to Look for in a Water Wall Manufacturer
Another important factor in the quality of water walls is the manufacturer. The last thing you want is to install a water fountain that leaks, cracks or looks subpar. This would create the exact opposite of your intended goal and only make your space more chaotic! How do you know which company to trust? Start by looking for a reputable brand with experience in the industry. Midwest Tropical, for example, has not only been in business since 1977, but we also are the company that pioneered indoor water walls. We craft all our products in-house from our state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in the Chicago area. Likewise, we test all our water features thoroughly to make sure every component from the pump to the acoustics is working well.
