Make a splash in your home

IF FENGSHUI consultants tell you to install a water source in a corner of your home, you needn't go through the trouble of renovating the house. Just visit Ripples Fountains, that showcases many a beautiful fountain, tempting you to take one home.

This solves not only your Fengshui or Vaastu needs, but also enhances the beauty of your home.

Ripples Fountains, a Delhi based company, that earlier sold its pieces through a dealer network, has an exclusive showroom with over 150 designs of fountains. They are tailored to suit any requirements, indoor or outdoor, be it corner-mounted fountains, table-top versions, garden fountains, wall-mounted or floor-mounted. The specialty of these fountains is that they not only serve as decorative pieces but also double up as utility items in your home.

For example, a small waterfall could be created from your centre table stand or you could have a water fountain in your lampshade holder. You can even have a clock mounted in the body of your fountain.

Ripples Fountains has been able to dispel the norm that such masterpieces can only be afforded by the affluent.

The fountains here start at Rs. 961 and easily find customers of all across Bangalore. The smallest could be one foot in height, while the largest could be a full-fledged water curtain, 20 foot high.

The company also takes customised orders for colours, sizes, and designs of fountains. "This is something that the others can't do,'' claims Mr. Rajendran, Regional Branch Manager, at the showroom.

The fountains have exotic names such as Baby Bell, Tree Fall, Cherub, etc. The corner fountains priced at Rs. 2,350 upwards, are the fastest selling.

As for the various designs, you could pick up anything from a swimming mermaid, or a lady with a pitcher, to Stallion pedestals, and wildlife/ animal themes. There are unique items such as a Waterfall photoframe priced at Rs. 1,696 and the bamboo fall at Rs. 1,832. There are even fountains with little frogs and Donald Duck for children's rooms.

For the religious-minded, there are diya fountains, a Shiva fountain at Rs. 4,768, and Siddhi Vinayak fountain at Rs. 2,552. These could easily enhance the ambience of your puja room and even create the right atmosphere with the soothing sound of rippling water as you meditate.

Maintenance of these fountains is rather easy, for their requirement of water is very little.

Some need just a litre while others need a maximum of six litres.

The water is cycled internally by Italian pumps and needs to be changed only once in 10 to15 days. Moreover, the electricity consumption of the fountains is hardly 10 to 15 watts, and these can be left on for an entire day too.

These fountains are safe to keep at home and come with a one year guarantee.

They are made from special fibre glass that ensures sturdiness in use and takes many colours as required by the customer.

While the fountains are designed and manufactured in Delhi, Ripples Fountains, has outlets in Mumbai and Coimbatore too.

The showroom can be contacted at 5091238, 5580912.
