If you’ve got extra space in your yard that needs something special, or a garden that needs a little upgrade, try adding an outdoor fountain!
A calming tiered outdoor fountain is a great way to spruce up any yard space. With so many design options to choose from, you can find the perfect fountain for your patio, yard, or even balcony.
A tiered outdoor fountain may seem like a lot of work, but with a few little tricks, it’s easy to keep this water feature going all year round.
Routinely wiping the inner bowl of your outdoor fountain with a non-abrasive cloth not only keeps it looking shiny and beautiful, but also prevents the build-up of dirt and dust.
Keep an eye on the fountain's pump - it could overheat if the water level's too low, so don’t let it run dry.
In seasonal climates and severe winter regions, outdoor fountains should be transported indoors to prevent cracking and freezing, especially marble garden fountains.
The Tiered Copper Leaves Indoor/Outdoor Fountain will let you enjoy the sound of cascading water all year long as it can be used indoors during colder months. The water cascades down a series of delicate series of copper leaves and creates a feeling of calm indoors and out.
If a small fountain just won’t cut it, this elaborate, statement-making fountain is perfect for a large driveway or as a centerpiece of your lawn.
The Nebbia Grande Kensington 3-Tier Fountain will wow any guest. Beautiful in a home or a commercial establishment, this cast stone three-tier fountain is handcrafted. Finished in stone-like Relic Nebbia, it features classic decorative bowls stacked above a large, smooth round pool. Fiberglass inner pool construction prevents leaks.
Custom made-to-order, this tiered outdoor fountain is truly one of a kind.
Want to add a true work of art to your yard? Look no further than the Hand-Made Copper Trellis Garden Fountain. This charming four-foot tall handcrafted copper garden fountain has a wonderful zigzag back and forth water flow.
The strong water sounds it creates can be adjusted by changing the rate of water. Made in the USA by David Perlman, world-renowned sculptor and one of America's finest craftsmen, and his team of trained artisans.
A tiered outdoor fountain could be just what you yard needs! Big or small, traditional or artistic, with a little searching you can find your ideal fountain.

For an ideal look in the bath, start with bathroom wall sconces on both sides of the mirror. Sconces offer clean, even lighting for make-up application, shaving and all-purpose beauty needs.
The best position for bathroom sconces is at eye level to reduce glare. Make sure to hang it high enough that the tallest person in the space can’t see down into the sconce.
If you don’t have room to place the sconce alongside the mirror, it can be put on the wall next to the mirror. If the sconces can't be mounted on either side of a mirror or on an adjacent wall, use a bath bar light above the mirror instead.
Most bathroom sconces have shades or frosted glass, which help eliminate glare. Shades are great for creating nice, even light.
Be sure to select a bathroom wall sconce that matches your décor. If your home has a woodsy or rustic feel, the Troy Theo Aged Pewter Wall Sconce would work well.
With the look of a candle wall sconce, this hand-forged metal design will add a traditional accent to your decor. The slender tapered based is set against a square wall plate and is topped with a warm, hardback linen shade.

Simple lines and inviting finishes define this rich oil rubbed bronze bathroom light. This 2-light wall fixture blends a clean, modern look with a raw industrial inspiration. The sophisticated etched opal glass gives this design a versatile look that will enhance nearly any style of bath decor.
If you dislike the shade look in your bathroom, a more modern choice could be made of glass or crystal.
Go glam with the Vienna Full Spectrum Chrome and Crystal Wall Sconce!. A cylinder curtain of crystals wrapped around a single halogen bulb makes for a sparkling addition to your bathroom.
If you’re looking for a combination of the shaded and crystal look, there are many sconces that fit the bill.
The modern design and chrome accents on the Clarte Bathroom Wall Sconce provides a cosmopolitan appeal. It features a bold silhouette and dramatic curved white iris glass in a sparkling chrome finish. This striking transitional light fixture makes a wonderful addition to a home with sleek lines.
Stylish bathroom wall sconces are key to creating the perfect lighting for your vanity. Either a pair of sconces on either side of a mirror or a bath bar above the mirror will help you get ready for anything.
