Why Have An Indoor Water Fountain





My son gifted me with an indoor water fountain during my birthday last month and I really didn't expect to receive such from him.  Admittedly, I was ecstatic when I saw it.  The day he brought it home, he and his sister arranged the fountain on our porch and filled it with stones and water.  After, they're done, that's the time they asked me to come out to see what they have for me.  When I went out to the porch, I saw this beautiful water fountain.  Admittedly, I long wanted to have a water fountain inside the house but for some reasons, I always procrastinate getting one.

Now that my son gave one to me as a gift, I am just so happy and excited!  

Having an indoor water fountain has a number of benefits:

First and I think no one will dispute the fact that it beautifies our homes.  It adds substance to any part of the house.  It creates a visual appeal that will surely delight anyone who stays in and visits the house.

Second, it helps us to relax.  I've experienced it myself.  I had my coffee one morning while seated next to the water fountain and the soothing sound coming from it proves to be therapeutic.  We all experienced being stressed at some point during the day and this could really help us feel relaxed after a long day at work.

Third, it cleans the air and helps to humidify the house.  I guess, this is also true and happens when we place a lot of plants inside our house.  Plants attract dusts, release oxygen and purifies the air and so does water fountain.  Having these together inside our homes is perfect.

With all the benefits mentioned plus the fact that it was given to me as a gift has made my water fountain so special and valued.  I'm one lucky Mom! :)

Outdoor Tub Ideas

Perhaps, you have a large yard or an extra space in your backyard....why not convert it into something useful?  Having an outdoor tub would definitely be an excellent addition to your yard.  This does not only provides alternative for a quick shower, this too could be very useful if you have small kids who would like to play around and get dirty anytime of the day.  They could straight away take their shower at an outdoor tub.

Apart from this, it is also another way of creating a focal point in your yard.  It could catch the attention of your visitors especially if the outdoor tub area was done tastefully.  They may even mistaken it for an outdoor spa. :)

Below are some outdoor tub ideas that I found to be nice and cozy:





Whatever design you choose for your outdoor tub, remember that it doesn't have to cost you a fortune.  All you need is a creative mind to visualize what would be best for your backyard.  You could choose the simplest one using not so expensive materials.  The secret here is adding personal touch and color.  You may use a cheap tub and a simple shower fixture but just add some elements like plants and stones to complement your outdoors.  Perhaps, this could also be a weekend project with your loved ones.

Have fun and and test your creativity by building your own outdoor tub.

A Place To Relax

It's always best to find a special place in the house where you can relax and unwind.  A place to hang out with friends, with your family members or just to spend a quiet and peaceful moment alone. A place like this in the house will help you have your own sanctuary where you can be comfortable doing just anything you love to do, be it reading a book or playing your favorite guitar.   It would be so nice to have a perfect time for yourself.




As a busy Mom, I am also dreaming of having my own sanctuary at home where I could relax after I'm done with all my obligations each day.  Perhaps, a reading nook would be great as I love to read books and magazines or maybe an outdoor seating area with a small coffee table would be perfect for a coffee lover like me.

Whatever it is, having your own special corner at home would be very ideal and I believe everybody would love to have one.

What's yours?
