Weather protected large wall clocks allow you to decorate a backyard patio, deck or even a garage. These indoor/outdoor timepieces are excellent for families that do a lot of entertaining and barbecuing outside. These clocks may come with separate smaller dials for temperature and relative humidity. If it is an atomic clock it will keep precise time and adjusts itself several times a day using radio signals from the U.S. Atomic Clock in Boulder, CO. It will adjust for Daylight Savings Time automatically.
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.
In the living room, traditional styles rule the day, but traditional styles have been taken to all new levels. With an array of natural and man made materials all types. styles from the past, present and future can be echoed with ease, and at reasonable prices. Very large clocks with roman numeral faces can make a dramatic statement over the fireplace or fill a huge undecorated space on a wall that needs breaking up. Mirrored backgrounds clocks are also popular for the living room. A tall, elegant wall clock with chimes and a pendulum is also a popular choice.
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.
