If you have put significant thought into creating your contemporary outdoor space then you know how important it is that you choose the perfect outdoor water fountain for your property. A contemporary theme can often get lost outside because the look is easiest achieved contained within walls. So, when you are able to create the look and feel you are trying to achieve outside it is typically pretty magical. It will definitely have your neighbors and guests talking about you in a good way.

Now, you know that an outdoor living space is not complete without at least a couple fountains, but certain ones could confuse the theme you have created. Our animal, angel, and people fountains are all examples of those that would likely be just a little out of place in your space. Of course, that does not mean that if you fall in love with one it can't be worked in somehow. You could also go with a different theme in the front yard.

Recommended Picks for Contemporary Spaces

  • Sphere - Nothing defines a modern piece quite like big, bold, beautiful art. These pieces are simple by design, but make a huge impact. In fact, they can nearly transform a plain environment into a contemporary one all on their own. Just imagine our Floating Sphere Fountain in granite gray placed by your black chaise lounge or white table. Sphere fountains have become the "go-to" option for contemporary designers.

  • Urn - Most people think of death when they hear the word "urn." However, like spheres, this simple but bold shape is dramatic. Plus, urns have been used in cremation practices since ancient times to assure positive memories stay alive. There is nothing about our urn collection that will make you think of funerals. Just take a look at our Chalice Fountain, and you will understand what the attraction is to them.

  • Glass - Yes, you can use glass outside! It is so common to see elegant glass water fountains used indoors, but for some reason people view them as off-limits for outdoor use. As long as it is not placed where a swinging branch, gate, or door could hit it in the wind. Glass is perfectly safe to place on your deck or patio.
