Modern large wall clocks are constructed from many different materials which include metal, glass, plastic, wood and even high density fiberboard that is laser cut. For a modern and rich look, a clock of silver and gold cannot be beat for an elegant dining room. If your home has a lot of antiques, a wooden clock made of distressed wood that matches the antique furniture will tie everything together. Also, a pendulum clock looks old fashioned and traditional in style. The swinging pendulum and melodic chimes will evoke nostalgic feelings of a time gone by.
The first thing to decide when buying a wall clock is the size you wish to have. The larger wall clocks have different sizes, but generally range from as little as 10 and up to 40 inches or more. This obviously requires having space on the walls.
The tick. No, I`m not being silly here. Does it tick? how loud? An amazing number of people have complained to me that they had to get rid of their new clock because the tick drove them mad! Have a careful listen, and actually tip the clock onto its side, the way it will hang on the wall. It sounds trivial but the weight of the hands and mechanism can make the tick a lot more pronounced when side loaded.
Another type of clock that can be a bit more discreet is the wooden wall clock. This type of clock is ideal for any room that is decorated around natural materials. Within wooden clocks, there are several types of different kinds of woods, colors, shapes and textures. It all depends on your preferences and budget to go for one or the other. But, please, avoid buying imitation wood. A clock attracts plenty of attention, and you don`t want your visitors looking at a piece of plastic, do you? You are left to choose the one you like, and combine it with the rest of the decoration at home.
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.
