Fabulous Decorating Ideas Using Wall Clocks
Living Area: I think we can agree that finding the perfect place for a wall clock isn’t as simple as one might think. Do you use one that’s big in size or smaller? Modern or retro? To get the most out of using a wall clock when decorating a living area, placement is super important. For example, large wall clocks are absolutely beautiful but are most beautiful in homes that have expansive living room walls, fireplaces or single pieces of furniture that could use a decorative element to make it stand out. The main idea behind a large wall clock isn’t to be the main focal point of the room but to compliment existing decorative items or help accentuate certain types of wood or paint tones. If you can imagine a spacing that is using only half of it’s potential, a large wall clock could be the perfect compliment to fill that space and make a strong decor statement.
Entry Way or Foyer: A wall clock can look amazing in your entry way or foyer. What a fun and inviting decorative piece that can really make whoever walks through your front door feel relaxed and welcomed. What types of decorative pieces do you have in your current entry way? Many of us have some sort of sofa table along with a pretty vase of flowers, a family photo or a candle. Envision a decorative wall clock this sits above your sofa table that one can easily see as they enter the home. Perhaps it could be the same color as your sofa table or 2 tones lighter or darker than the color of your wall.
Bedroom: We certainly spend a lot of time in our bedrooms. For most of us it’s our safe haven, our retreat and a place that we relax and enjoy special moments with loved ones. It’s also the room that we go to sleep and wake up in each morning. We have yet to see a bedroom without a clock nearby. Usually on an end table or on top of a dresser.
For those redecorating your bedrooms, consider adding a beautiful wall clock to your decor. If your headboard is low enough, you can easily place a large wall clock over the top of your headboard. If you have his/her dressers try placing a wall clock in between them at an appropriate height that looks appealing.
Kitchen: The kitchen is the perfect room in your home to add a decorative wall clock. You will be thrilled to add a clock that suites your wall that equally exudes the style and personality of your kitchen.
There are wall clocks for your kitchen in every color, shape and style you can imagine. Do you have a room leading out of your kitchen? Consider adding a wall clock above the door frame so you can easily see the clock from anywhere in the kitchen and on your way out. Is your kitchen semi-open with a large opening to your living area? You can easily put a wall clock on the wall high above your kitchen counter so that people in both the kitchen and living areas can easily see the clock.
