Tabletop fountains enjoy enormous popularity as they are compact and can be placed anywhere, come in a variety of designs and may feature abstract compositions, water cascades or mini architectural compositions. In terms of structure, almost all types of indoor water fountains have more or less the same structure and differ in size and appearance.

Some designs are equipped with modern LED lighting which add to the appearance of the composition by emphasizing individual elements.
