zzof. Clock. October 27th , 2017.
Some types of clocks, but not limited to are: Antique, Wall, Contemporary, Nautical, Atomic, Decorative, Traditional, Mantel, Grandfather, Cuckoo, Kitchen, Alarm, and others. There are two types of movement. They are mechanical and quartz battery operated. Some mechanical clocks produce a chiming sound. Clocks are also powered by solar energy, winding mechanism, and batteries.
In the living room, traditional styles rule the day, but traditional styles have been taken to all new levels. With an array of natural and man made materials all types. styles from the past, present and future can be echoed with ease, and at reasonable prices. Very large clocks with roman numeral faces can make a dramatic statement over the fireplace or fill a huge undecorated space on a wall that needs breaking up. Mirrored backgrounds clocks are also popular for the living room. A tall, elegant wall clock with chimes and a pendulum is also a popular choice.
A well chosen clock should complement your space, and will be a pleasure to look at as well as being just functional. Here are a few key pointers. Is it big enough? If you need to put your glasses on to read the time, maybe you should look for big bold characters. It can still be elegant, just look for a large wall clock with black on white numbers. Also look for solid easy to see hands that you can see across the room.
Color. In my experience decorating, it is best to stick to traditional colors for traditional objects. Plain colors or natural tones are generally safe, or otherwise ensure that at least one color area of the clock matches one of the dominant colors in the room (i.e. white walls will blend smoothly with a white face, even if the clock surround is another color).
Are you interested in a nautical theme, or do you prefer a clock that is much more military in nature? If so, it is time for you to take a look at metal clocks. Metal clocks might be made of brushed aluminum for a bright and modern look or they might be made out of polished brass for something that is much more traditional. These clocks are usually round and the edges are usually fairly thick. This can go a long way towards helping your room develop the look that it wants.
