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).
Innovative designs for large wall clocks are plentiful with many different shapes, styles and materials that were unavailable several years ago. Shopping could not be easier online and the selection is far greater than that found in stores and malls that have space limitations. If you enjoy gardening, there are many clocks with floral themes such as sunflowers that will please you. Families that love boating will appreciate nautical themes such as sailboats on sparkling water. The kitchen is the perfect place for an apple or a pizza clock. Animal lovers will adore pet clocks with a paw print or a specific breed like a Basset Hound.
The first antique wall clocks were called lanterns. They were made out of brass, very heavy and were hung on walls. The concept of personal clocks was introduced in the 17th century.
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.
The Hands of Time - Wall Clocks. The first time pieces started approximately 6,000 years ago for religious rituals. These devises were often candles and lamps. Farmers used sections of time for planting, growing and harvesting. It was not necessary to know the exact time.
