zzof. Clock. October 07th , 2017.
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.
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.
These outdoor clocks are an interesting and unique gift for the outdoorsmen and people who are active outdoors. They are useful when placed out in your work shed, your patio, or your garage. A nautical design is useful and ads a nice decorative touch to any boat. If you know someone who owns a boat a nautical wall-clocks makes an awesome gift. Don`t forget about poolside wall-clocks. A nice back lit weather proof clock can really add a decorative accent to your backyard pool. The possibilities for these large weather proof time pieces are endless.
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.
