Water generally
travels farther in larger fountains, better simulating the movement and sound
of water in nature.

Tabletop Given its smaller size and weight, this fountain lends itself to being placed on a table, credenza, desk, counter, or bookshelf.

Floor (freestanding) Because of their size, height, and/or weight, these fountains are intended to be placed on the floor, not on a table or other elevated, supporting surface. These are freestanding units, often of a size and design which make them a focal point in a room.

Wall-mounted Various fountain designs which are physically mounted on the wall of a room. Requires a solid mounting surface and adequate mounting hardware to support the fountain’s weight. (Not to be confused with the "Water Wall" design style.)

Outdoor-Garden Usually a freestanding or "floor" fountain suited for an outdoor setting. Made of materials - such as granite, stone-like composites, resin-coated faux rock, or wood - which can accommodate outdoor conditions. Requires electrical service at the fountain's location (unless it's a solar-powered unit). Requires draining/preparation before freezing temperatures.

Many Outdoor/Garden/Courtyard fountains can be used indoors. Some considerations:

  • Can the flooring support the weight of a larger fountain, especially one made of rock or concrete?
  • Could the fountain splash onto flooring or furniture?
  • Is there enough access to move the larger fountain indoors?
  • Is there a convenient, ongoing water supply to replace what evaporates?

Waterfalls A sub-category of both Floor fountains and Outdoor fountains, the Waterfall is characterized by a larger size (including notable height) and is designed to simulate a natural rock outcropping. It is intended to remind you of a waterfall you would see in the natural outdoors. Often these units can be used indoors as well as outdoors.

Furniture A fountain in which the water flow is incorporated within a functional piece of furniture such as a coffee table, end table, dining table, or lamp. (FountainFinder does not display this type as a separate group. However, most models would be floor fountains.)
