Indoor ponds provide a host of benefits, and the only real difference between them and their outdoor counterparts is mainly location. Indoor ponds, as their name imply, are built inside a building or space that have a shelter whereas outdoor ponds are built out in the open. Also, ponds which are constructed indoors can be as big as the space allows, and its construction will be dependent on the function you intend for it.
Why You Need Indoor Ponds
One benefit of installing a pond indoors is that it produces negative ions. This is due to the water’s movement, which produces ions in the air which result in increased oxygen flow. This will make those that live or work in the same building have enhanced alertness levels, higher mental energy, and even protection from airborne germs, which lowers the irritation which can result from constantly inhaling particles that can lead or coughing or sneezing.
Furthermore, the presence of negative ions in the air has also been associated with elevated serotonin levels. Serotonin is a bodily chemical which is responsible for mood enhancement. When negative ions are present in the air residents or employees will feel both physically and mentally invigorated and moving water is the best way to create this effect.
An indoor pond also caters for design variety, particularly when great care and planning is put into its construction. Depending on the space that you have available, you could incorporate various atriums, fountains or foyers in a way that will enhance the interior space. Indoor ponds can also boost humidity, which is beneficial in situations where the temperature fluctuates regularly due to the AC unit. The moist air will provide more comfort as the humidity will create balance in the indoor air.
The sound and sight of moving water has been known to create a calming effect, which is why some researchers believe humans are so attracted to beaches, lakes and rivers. If you are installing an indoor pond in a commercial building, it can go a long way to reduce stressors which can normally have an adverse impact on morale or productivity. Moving water produces a gentle sound that can block out unpleasant noises effectively, giving your workers greater concentration. When water features are placed in a lobby, it can alleviate anxiety in those who are waiting.
