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!
If you are more interested or your profile leans more toward the nautical theme, it is possible to go shopping for metal as a material of choice. For a more modern look, you may choose more shiny metals like glass or brass.
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.
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.
Modern large wall clocks are constructed from many different materials which include metal, glass, plastic, wood and even high density fiberboard that is laser cut. For a modern and rich look, a clock of silver and gold cannot be beat for an elegant dining room. If your home has a lot of antiques, a wooden clock made of distressed wood that matches the antique furniture will tie everything together. Also, a pendulum clock looks old fashioned and traditional in style. The swinging pendulum and melodic chimes will evoke nostalgic feelings of a time gone by.
