Outdoor Water Fountains that Work Perfectly for Smaller Entryways
Even in a tight space, there is room for elegance. Don’t let having a small entryway keep you from achieving the style you so richly deserve. Whether you’re into old-fashioned or modern, lighted or dark, simple or extreme, there are options to fit whatever it is you’re trying to gussy up. We’ve lined up a few interesting items which will have you looking good in no time at all.
Echo Wall Water Fountain
The most modern of the bunch is the Echo Wall Water Fountain. Featuring fiber-reinforced concrete in a variety of colors, this fountain has a smooth style with no frills. Water pours from the single, pointed copper pipe into a basin several feet below. It splashes, the crash echoing off the concrete walls of the basin, spreading the soothing sounds of water all around. In a small entryway, this would be especially dramatic, almost like stepping into a cave behind a waterfall. Well, perhaps not that dramatic, but one can dream.

Vestibule Wall Garden Water Fountain
Like something out of an old castle, the Vestibule Wall Garden Water Fountain stands proud, welcoming any visitors who may come your way. Standing at a dramatic 65 inches, the fountain features an inset arch over a beautifully designed half basin. Inside the arch is where the magic happens, as a single spigot releases water into a small initial basin, which then splits the stream into three, which then cascade into the large half basin. These four streams of water would provide a light, but not overly loud, sound of water in a small entryway. The basin sits on an intricately designed pedestal, and the whole thing looks as though it is made of bricks torn directly from King Arthur’s Camelot. There is a lot to love about this fountain!
Distressed Pots Fountain With Halogen and LED Lights
I find this to be the most intriguing of the bunch. It calls upon visions of ancient civilizations living in caves with underground rivers. They crafted clay pots to carry the water to their camps or any other place they may need it, but sometimes they might get left behind and slowly begin to erode away. The Distressed Pots Fountain could be exactly that, or it could just be a truly creative idea. As water flows from the top basin, hitting another on each step toward the bottom, lovely water sounds are created. The glow from the accent lighting further enhances the mystical feel, making it seem as though this is a thing that exists outside of time. It is an impressive piece that deserves to be appreciated, which it would be if it were front and center in your small entryway. If you’re interested in this adventure, click here.
Agua Water Fountain in Rust Finish
Coming in at only 15 inches square, this fountain is positively perfect for a small entryway. The nice thing is, you’re not sacrificing quality for that small space, as this thing blends modern and classic styles in a way that’s sure to impress anyone coming to your home. With four pots in four different sizes, the Agua Water Fountain gives unique motion to the water, bringing with it gentle sounds as it flows through each one. The uppermost pot sits on a lovely gray river stone, which contrasts nicely with the rust finish the rest of the fountain features. One neat benefit to the Agua Water Fountain is it can be used indoors, as well, so this would make a nice addition to a foyer or seating area. Does a blend of rustic and modern sound like your thing?

Colonna Garden Water Fountain
Much like the Echo Wall Water Fountain, the Colonna Garden Water Fountain shines in its simplicity. Standing at 2.5 feet tall, the fountain features a small copper spout that releases water into a small basin, which then overflows into a larger basin to being the process all over again. The fountain features clean lines in the graceful arch that turns across the top, enhancing the smooth finish of the fiber reinforced cast stone concrete. This is a great piece to have in a tight space, though with its height, it might be best to somehow elevate it. Even at ground level, though, the Colonna Garden Water Fountain is elegantly peaceful, both in the sounds it puts out and in its style. For more on this lovely fountain, click here.
Valencia Wall Outdoor Water Fountain
This fountain takes me to a rural village in Spain where it sits outside the mayor’s home, letting everyone know it is an important place. Standing at more than five feet tall, it is a sight to behold. Water flows from a spout set into an intricately designed backplate. It falls into a small basin before flowing out of the four notches into the larger basin below. The Valencia Wall Outdoor Water Fountain is a thing of beauty. While it is wide, set up against a wall, as it should be, it only sticks out 17 inches, which isn’t bad in a small entryway. It’s especially not bad if you want to make a statement. Pure elegance is how I would describe this fountain. For more, click here.
Cencillo Garden Water Fountain
This garden fountain is one of the wider ones on this list, but it remains for a good reason: It’s lovely. A large, vertical pot stands in the center of the Cencillo Garden Water Fountain, almost like a lily reaching toward the sun. Water bubbles from the center of it, flowing down the sides of the pot into the basin below, creating soft splashes and beautiful refractions of light. The cast stone, which is available in 31 different colors, offers durability and is given a unique weathered look. It is as though time has touched this piece, but it has only made it better.
Taking a look back at these beautiful fountains, it’s easy to see what sorts of wonderful things can be done in small spaces. Don’t feel down if you’ve got a small entryway, liven it up with a beautiful water feature sure to entrance anyone who sees it.
