Wall clocks are timeless decorative elements and they continue to be used in most homes. The great thing about them is that their basic design and concept is so simple and versatile that it can be adapted to match any type of décor and any room of the house. For example, a large wall clock can make a wonderful decoration for the living room. It can be placed anywhere there’s free space.

But given the fact that wall clocks are both functional pieces and beautiful decorative elements, they can be easily integrated in any room’s décor. In the bedroom you can replace your wall art with an oversized clock hanging above the headboard. In the kitchen you can have a clock on the cabinet door or on a side wall. It can also sit nicely on a shelf. In the dining room an oversized wall clock would also make a beautiful decoration.

The space above the fireplace is also a very nice area for displaying a wall clock. Of course, a home office could definitely use one as well. You can hang it above the desk or anywhere you can find some free space. The style you choose for the clock is important as well. There are numerous options worth considering. Antique and vintage clocks are always beautiful but contemporary designs are just as interesting. For the kids’ room you can opt for a clock with a friendly and colorful design while in a contemporary office you can minimalize the design and only use the mechanism. The options are numerous. We’ve selected a few examples that hopefully cover most of them.
