In an age of phones, smart-watches and a growing variety of time-telling devices, a wall clock has become more than a purely functional piece: it's an accent element, a conscious décor choice, a focal point that can immediately catch the attention of anyone walking into the room.
However, it still needs to be practical and easy to read, of course. Let's waste no time and find out how to choose a wall clock that is both functional and decorative.
Too much to take in? Let's go over the most important parts!
- Choose an analog clock if you want it to be a decorative piece and don't mind it making a little noise, or go for a digital model if you value practicality and quietness above everything else
- In order to find the right size, consider the other elements on that wall and how far you'll be when reading the time
- Look for a color that creates a light and dark contrast against the wall, matches the room's palette, and keeps the décor style cohesive
- Other quirky ideas are to choose a clock in a specific shape or have multiple ones that show the time in different countries.
