Large Wall Clocks - Stylish, Trendy, Practical. Large wall clocks are one of the more recent and dramatic decorating trends. They`re "in" in a big way - and for a host of very good reasons. For starters, the clocks are stylish, trendy, decorative, practical and widely available at prices from ridiculously expensive to embarrassingly cheap. Anyone planning a major or minor do-over to change the look and character of any room in the home, and that includes a patio or porch, should give serious consideration to a large wall clock as an important element in the face lift.
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.
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.
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.
For the den, the styles tend to be a little less serious and more playful. Sports, beer, cards, pool and gambling themes prevail for the younger and more adventurous set. Those with more sedate tastes will probably want to select something a little less brassy. Hunting and fishing themes or eye-catching large wall clocks with a weather or nautical theme are popular. Weather protected large wall clocks are also available for your porch or patio in a wide range of prices and styles.
