Clocks specifically designed for the kitchen, lean toward food and cooking themes, but clocks based on coffee and tea are common as are ones based on bistro themes. Animals such as chickens, roosters and cows also are an option. Of course there`s no reason to limit your choice to styles targeted to the kitchen. If your decorating taste tells you that a clock of a size and style more suited to Grand Central Station is a fit for your kitchen - go for it!
We are all familiar with the indoor wall-clock as decorative and useful addition to virtual any room in our homes and offices. What we may not realize is that clocks make great outdoor decorative pieces too. The minimum requirement for a worthy clock is that it is weather proof, or at least water resistant. Water resistant clocks are better suited to dryer climates, or on a sheltered patio. If you live in a climate like the Northwestern United states, or the UK you will want to have a fully water proof weather resistant outdoor-clock. They are not hard to find.
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.
Large Wall Clocks - A Bold Focal Point. Today, large wall clocks are a "must have" for the decor of any room. They can create a bold focal point in your home or office while they serve as a practical and functional timepiece. In addition to serving a purpose, a decorative clock will add warmth and beauty to your home, and it will become a valued and cherished accessory. These timepieces come with Roman numerals, standard numbers or some other unique and stylish system, but they are still very easy to read from some distance across the room. Many colors, textures and designs are available. Most are battery operated to eliminate an unsightly electric cord dangling on the wall.
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.
