Using Indoor Modern Fountains in Your Home for Good Feng Shui

Indoor modern fountains are among the most popular Feng Shui products and come in various materials, sizes and shapes. They also come in many types, including wall-mounted, free standing, and tabletop, to name a few. Contrary to popular belief, a fountain does not have to look oriental to become a Feng Shui cure. In fact, none of your Feng Shui cures have to look oriental in order for it to bring in good energy. It is best when they harmoniously work with your home decorating style.
The reason why fountains are very popular in Feng Shui is because they bring the energy of water, which is an ancient Feng Shui symbol of prosperity and wealth. Another good reason to use indoor fountains is because it has the ability to diffuse negative ions into the air. The best areas to position fountains in your home are the following.
  • North for career and path in life
  • Southeast for abundance and prosperity
  • East  for health and family
The location of your fountain is determined by the Be-Gua, which is the Feng Shui energy map. This can also be determined with the interplay of the five Feng Shui elements.
  • It is not advisable to put a fountain or any water feature in the south area. In Feng Shui, south is connected to fame and reputation with the energy of fire. Bringing the fountain -- a water element -- and fire creates bad Feng Shui or conflicting energy, as water will put down the fire.
  • It is bad Feng Shui to have a water feature in the bedroom, regardless of the Feng Shui area it is located in. The water element brings the energy of worry in the bedroom.
On a practical level, when buying a water fountain, choose a good quality fountain with a silent motor, along with a fountain with a design that is easy to keep clean. Below are some great choices for indoor water fountains.
