Large Wall Clocks - A Bold Focal Point. Today, large wall clocks are a "must have" for the decor of any room. They can create a bold focal point in your home or office while they serve as a practical and functional timepiece. In addition to serving a purpose, a decorative clock will add warmth and beauty to your home, and it will become a valued and cherished accessory. These timepieces come with Roman numerals, standard numbers or some other unique and stylish system, but they are still very easy to read from some distance across the room. Many colors, textures and designs are available. Most are battery operated to eliminate an unsightly electric cord dangling on the wall.
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.
Style. I make no apologies for being conservative... but I have yet to come across a room where a plain, conservative wall clock would be out of place, provided its color didn`t clash with the room. If in doubt, simply stick to old fashioned round face with plain digits. Then again if you want to be adventurous here is the chance - do a quick search online and you will find hundreds of clocks to suit any theme from nautical to horror movie memorabilia.
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.
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!
