zzof. Clock. October 12th , 2017.
All clocks have inner workings that would surprise and amaze you. We usually just take it for granted. There are analog clocks which have a face and hands and battery operated and there are digital clocks which are usually powered by an electric current with number displays.
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 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.
A well chosen clock should complement your space, and will be a pleasure to look at as well as being just functional. Here are a few key pointers. Is it big enough? If you need to put your glasses on to read the time, maybe you should look for big bold characters. It can still be elegant, just look for a large wall clock with black on white numbers. Also look for solid easy to see hands that you can see across the room.
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!
