We are going to help you choose the best clock to accentuate your home by answering a few questions you might have.
What’s the purpose of floor clocks and wall clocks?
The most obvious response would be that clocks can help us keep track of time, but with the rise of smartphones, their primary function might have changed a bit for the younger generations. However, to this day, clocks continue to be great decorative pieces to enhance your space and give any room an elegant finishing touch.
Where should you place the clock?
Think about where you check the time most frequently, and where you’re missing an eye-catching decorative piece. A classic option could be in your kitchen wall or standing in your living room, but they also can be used in your dining room, entryway, or above a door.
Where should you place a clock in the living room?
If you go with a traditional grandfather floor clock, it can be placed in as the focal point of an undefined space, perhaps against the wall or an entryway door. If you are considering a wall clock make sure that is hung higher behind any furniture in your living room, so it’s not blocked in any way. You can leave about six inches of space between your clock and anything surrounding it so it doesn’t look crowded. And for extra decoration, you can pair the placement next to wall art or portraits.
How big should the wall clock be?
This depends if you are looking for a large or a small wall clock. If you’re looking for a small clock, the width will be around seven or eight inches while a large clock can be up to thirty-two inches in width. Make sure to check out the dimensions of the wall clock of your choice so it matches the proportion of any furniture or accessories you have in the room.
What batteries do clocks use?
When you find the wall clock or floor clock you want, check out its features to see what type of battery is required. For example, it might say “Requires 1 "AA" battery (not included)” or “Requires two C and two D sized batteries (not included).”
