Wall Fountains for Medical Purposes
I’ve been noticing an interesting trend in interior design for businesses and professional centers. This growing trend has been particularly apparent in hospitals, urgent care centers, dentistry offices, and psychiatric facilities, though it is also prevalent in places like law firms and travel agencies. I even saw one in an airport. What am I talking about? I am talking about the increasing prevalence of wall fountains as decorations.
When you think about it, it makes sense. Wall fountains are pleasant to look at, and they are dynamic enough to keep your attention for at least a little while. This is due to the way water flows down the face of these fountains. Water is very dynamic, and it will fall down the fountain face in a manner that is relatively unpredictable, depending on the style of fountain façade and the imperfections on its surface. The beauty of these fountains can distract people and help the time pass, especially in crowded waiting rooms.
But wall fountains serve an even more important purpose. Waiting rooms – especially in hospitals – can be pretty anxious places. Patients get very nervous, and let’s face it, no one really looks forward to going in for a checkup or worse, a surgery. The soothing sound of water gently cascading down a stone wall fountain face will help calm even the shakiest nerves, and allow people to relax. The ambience and tranquility that wall fountains instill in offices and waiting rooms is a truly invaluable means of keeping people happy and, ideally, serene.
This trend doesn’t look like it’s going to fade anytime soon. Not only are wall fountains beautiful decorations, but they also help people relax. Doctors recognize the value of water fountains to ease stress and relieve anxiety. So why not consider installing one in your own home or office?
