If you find an object that you like, you can create an entirely new look for your room based around that object. Clocks are something that you find in almost any household and when you find one that you like the most, you want to create a balance in the room that centers around the clock.
You may not think of a clock as a centerpiece or focal point in the room, however, it is very easy to create a balanced look with just one object. First, you need to determine where you are going to hang your clock. The most popular places is over the fireplace and on the longest walls. You can also consider the area above the entertainment center or television so you can keep track of time while you are watching a movie.
There is more to choose from in clocks these days. In the past, they had beautiful patterns and designs but nothing like what they have available today. Use simple colors that bring the entire room together. Create a mirage of clocks by placing them in a row.
On the floor
Floor clocks look beautiful. They are an individual masterpiece that can change the look of any room to be sophisticated. These clocks are sleek and bold as they display the time for everyone in the room. Place your clock on a sophisticated modern area rug that displays the colors that you like the most in your room. You can also place the floor clock on a neutral gone. There are several different colored flokati rugs to choose from today.
You can place a clock for your focal point in any room. For a child’s room, you can choose a character clock. These clocks usually sing a song or are animated to make your child happy every time the clock strikes twelve. For a teen, there are neon clocks that look beautiful, or cool, in the bedroom. These clocks come in a variety of different shapes, colors, and sizes so your teen will always know what time it is in their room. For the adult, a simple clock that has handles that glow in the dark would be fine too. They have several options to them too; with or without an alarm or glow in the dark hands. If you have a fireplace with a mantel, purchase a mantel clock in the middle of the mantel for the best overall decor.
When decorating with clocks, you want to make sure that you create a balance in your colors. Sometimes clocks have a different color then what your paint is and this can throw the entire look off balance. It is best to use a neutral color on your walls if your clock is a unique color.
Clocks for gifts
Clocks also make great gifts. If you know of someone who is moving into their first home or your teen is going off to college, they are going to need a great looking clock to hang up on their wall or sit on their table or floors.
