Mid Century Wall Clock
Choosing a Wall Clock With Imagination
From very early on in life our lives are characterized by time, and there is no greater symbol of this than the wall clocks which decorate our kitchens, family rooms, and schools. Every kid can remember gazing up at the clock over the door, with its seemingly infinite amount of time until it finally hit 3:00PM. But the wall clocks of our youth are really only a pale shade of everything that is available. This has always been a great and wide-ranging opportunity for designers of every ilk to make both grand and extravagant designs, as well as simple, subtle, and affordable time pieces. My point is just this: when purchasing a wall clock more people need to expand their imaginations. There is really no reason to just stick to the tried and true black bordered, black numerals, and white background clocks that are most typical of school cafeterias and drab offices. Here you can really get inventive and fun, and make this item a very complimentary aspect of the entire design of whatever room it is in.
Another thing I’d like to point out is that you don’t have to spend an arm and a leg in order to outfit your home with a great and beautiful wall clock. In fact, there are many varieties of designs even at the $10 or $15 price point. The fact is that it is not very expensive at all to manufacture, ship, and stock wall clocks, so the market is just flooded with just about every design imaginable. This allows consumers to really have a lot of choice in exactly what they want. Browse around. Take a look online, as that is where the most supply is, as well as the lowest prices.
A carefully considered clock will add a lot of subtle brilliance to the room in which it is hung. Be careful not to clash with the colors which are already present. Wall clocks are too plentiful and varied to settle for the first one you see, unless it really catches your eye. They are also too cheap (usually) to not replace old, broken, or dirty ones.
I am continually astounded at how this seems to be the last and most forgotten element of interior decoration. Maybe people think that “time” is somehow outside of aesthetic consideration? It is too “scientific and numerical” to be considered in the initial planning of a room’s set up? I don’t know; but I do know that wall clocks are undeniably integral to the look and feel of a home, whether it be in the kitchen, in bedrooms, in the basement, in the hallway, or elsewhere.
So please leave here keeping in mind that you can really exercise your own imagination and design dreams in the choosing of a wall clock. It is not a small thing, and it should not be overlooked. If anything, it is a very leveraged (money-wise) way to add a lot to a room. Because of the low prices, this is an area where literally everyone can add some zest to their houses.
