Another type of wall clock that is more subtly eye catching is the wood wall clock. A wooden wall clock can be a wonderfully lovely touch to a room that is very much centered on natural materials. Some wooden clocks are quite plain, while others have a face that is created from matching up different woods to create a whole. A wooden clock might have dark bronze or pale silver hands and you will find that this can be quite striking in its own way. Look at the wood in the room where you want to put the clock and take some time to really consider how a wood clock might look in there. Choosing a good wood clock can give you a great focal point for the room or it can be a wonderful supporting detail.
Style. I make no apologies for being conservative... but I have yet to come across a room where a plain, conservative wall clock would be out of place, provided its color didn`t clash with the room. If in doubt, simply stick to old fashioned round face with plain digits. Then again if you want to be adventurous here is the chance - do a quick search online and you will find hundreds of clocks to suit any theme from nautical to horror movie memorabilia.
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.
Most clocks are mass produced now using cheaper materials such as plastic and metals. Most Americans find that clocks are cheaper then most paintings to help fill their empty walls. They also are a status symbol and bring elegance and character to one`s surroundings.
The next instrument was Sundials from Egypt which marked the daily progress of the suns movement across the sky. This method was known to be accurate and useful. You can still purchase clocks that look like sundials today. These were made of brass and only the rich could afford them. Briton transformed the brass dials with painted ones. These were inexpensive and clocks started being used for decoration as well as keeping time.
