Choosing the Best Wall Clock For Your Room. Like it or not, nearly everyone`s lives are ruled by time. We need to know when and where, and no body can get by without a clock. Sure, there are clocks everywhere... on the microwave, the stove, the TV, but they don`t exactly drip style!
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.
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.
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.
Most all the the clocks, regardless of style and size have simple movements powered by a singe 2A battery, seldom need setting, and run for what seems to be forever on a single battery. Pendulums and other accessories somewhat shorten the clock`s battery life.
