Wall clocks are one fantastic way of setting the design theme to a room, or an entire area, simply by making it the focal point, and choosing the rest of the furnishings to match. The big clocks made by designer Karlsson, for example, are a great way to begin this type of decorating practice. Known for their unique designs, the amazing amount of colours and symbology used, they are the perfect way to practice quality design around a central focal point.
Room or area colour is another great way to choose which kind would best suit your home environment. If the colour on your walls is primarily a neutral tone, like white or cream, for example, then you want clocks of colour to become the dominant shade within a space. A black wall clock, done in a modern or contemporary style, for example, is a great way to work in unique pieces of furniture that echo the themes found within the clock itself. A red wall clock that is done in a retro or vintage style would allow for furniture pieces that match the period.
You can also choose wall clocks specifically to suit an area within a home. For big spaces, like lofts, you will need large wall clocks to offset the sheer volume of open space that can be found on a single wall. Rooms that have already been decorated in a funky style, with a lot of eclectic furniture in attendance, may require a completely off the wall match, like a cuckoo clock, a replica of a digital watch on the wall, or a Newgate styled scenic clock. In the same manner, cute kitchen wall clocks could be used to brighten up an otherwise drab environment.
