zzof. Clock. October 30th , 2017.
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.
The first thing you should decide when buying a wall clock is what size to get. The larger wall clocks can be anywhere from the two to four feet range. This obviously requires some open wall space. A clock this size will be quite stunning and draw the eye but be careful that there is not too much going on in the room otherwise you could get a cluttered result. If you have the space, a bright or colorful clock that carefully mixes well with the rooms theme can really draw some attention and become a conversation piece.
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 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.
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.
