Where to Place Outdoor Wind Chimes
Outdoor wind chimes are great for making an area of the home feel welcoming and cheerful. The
musical sound created by outdoor wind chimes can help to alleviate a mood or improve the ambience of the area it is
Feng shui is also a great influence in where to put wind chimes. Some people who do not entertain the beliefs
connected to feng shui place their outdoor wind chimes where they want them to.
Outdoor Wind Chimes -Gardens And Patios
A large garden will benefit greatly from outdoor wind chimes. Do not limit your imagination by just placing the
wind chimes near a doorway or near places where people are bound to sit. You can place wind chimes in trees where
people are likely to pass and enjoy the tinkle of the musical sound or near a pond in the garden. Outdoor wind
chimes can also be placed near patios to help with the mood and ambiance of the people who will sit here.
Some outdoor wind chimes actually have stands that are high enough to catch the wind. These stands or posts are
placed strategically in the garden or near the patio or gazebo. Using wind chimes stands can be better if you have
no immediate area to place the chimes on. Some wind chimes for the outdoors are attached to birdhouses or
birdfeeders so that these would still create a musical sound as the birds move the house or feeder.
Doorways are the more common places that outdoor wind chimes are placed. Many people like to place outdoor wind
chimes near doorways to help lift the mood of people about to enter or leave the place. Chimes made for the
outdoors are hung not over the door where they can be hit by the opening and closing of the door but just close to
the opening. Door chimes are actually different from outdoor wind chimes because these kinds of chimes are supposed
to be hit by the door as it opens and closes. These kinds of chimes are usually made of hardier or sturdier
material that sea shells or glass because of the constant contact with the hard door.
