5 Reasons to Add a Water Feature to Your Living Space
To the delight of many, it seems that Summer has made an early appearance this year. Gone are the chilly days spent huddled up indoors; instead, we make our way outside, soaking up the sun at every opportunity. With this in mind, it makes sense to ensure the space in which we will spend endless summer afternoons is beautiful, calming and tranquil – a personal sanctuary – and how better to achieve this than with a water feature?
We’ve got five reasons for you to add one (or two) to your landscape today.
Find Stillness in a Chaotic World
Water features are as effective in promoting peace and relaxation as they are aesthetically pleasing. Establishing one at the entry of your home truly sets the tone for what’s to come and adds a soothing and calming effect to one’s arrival. Our Cotswold Flagstones with matching Bullnoses are ideal for this type of layout as they are available in a variety of sizes and bullnose configurations. Consistency is guaranteed, as is a beautifully unique entryway.
When a Pool isn’t An Option
Many opt against installing swimming pools due to insufficient space and/or financial constraints. Fortunately, water features add the same sense of calm and beauty (if not more) as a pool. Combine our Flamed Granite Flagstones, Bullnoses and Cobblestones with Desertstone Cladding for a distinctive set-up that entices all the senses.
Create Stunning Focal Points
The best water features not only add atmosphere and ambience to your outdoor space, they also provide a stunning focal point. With the freedom to design it however you like, you can create one that suits your style and the rest of your home. Consider combining our Classic Flagstones with their textured surface and scalloped edges and our Classic Cladding for that elegant and timeless look.
Invite Birds to Explore Your Property
There’s nothing better than the sound of birds chirping to remind us that the warmer weather is here. A garden fountain is ideal for enticing feathered friends to stop and take a dip or a sip along their journey. Our Cotswold Bullnoses have been designed with a soft rounded profile to finish off the edges of such features beautifully.
Boost Your Home’s Curb Appeal
If increasing the value of your property or boosting its overall appearance are priorities, then adding a water feature would be a great investment. In addition, it acts as a visual and auditory spoil for dwellers, visitors and anyone passing by. Our Ledgestone Cladding enhances cascading fountains, while our Flamed Granite Flagstones and matching Bullnoses work to highlight colourful flower beds and lush, green lawns.
So, next time you head outdoors – keep an eye out for areas that could do with a beautiful new addition.
