My top choice for a clock would be a wall clock with a really eye-catching look. I love this one that has a bit of a retro design to it. My kitchen has a retro design but the primary color is red so a clock like this would work if I could find it in red instead of green.
I love the clock in this picture. It hangs unobtrusively in the top corner of the room. You don't even notice it at first. And yet, when you do notice it, it truly captures your attention because it's such an ornate, gorgeous piece.
I do think that some homes would be well-suited to the display of a large standing clock. This ornate clock perfectly matches the other decorative pieces in the room (the chandelier, the seating area, etc.) Choosing a period piece would be the way to go in a home like this.
I love this large clock because it gives the impression of a big centerpiece but it doesn't take up a lot of space. It's thin enough to sit almost flush with the wall but the size and design make it a piece worth talking about.
Another way to set up a large clock without cluttering the room is to stick it in a corner or niche like we see here. I love the curvaceous design of this clock, don't you?!
A clock doesn't have to be large to be noticeable in a room. The small clock on a shelf in this kitchen really jumps out at you. It is so different from the rest of the room's design that it gets your attention. And yet, it seems to work despite being so different. What do you think about this type of clock for your home?
I like the above example but I think I'd prefer it if the small clock seemed to fit better with the rest of the room. That's what we see here in the bedroom where the clock on the table is an interesting piece but it doesn't dominate your attention in the room. It's a great accent piece that goes with the rest of the decor.
As I mentioned, I do love the idea of putting together a collection of clocks. Here we see three clocks that are similar in design but different in size. That's a neat idea. Another choice would be matching clocks that are set to different times (perhaps the times for each region where you have relatives).
I am excited about the idea of getting a great clock with a neat design. However, it should be pointed out that a really simple clock works well in some rooms, too. If you want to put up a clock that matches the room but allows the rest of the decor to stand out over it then a choice like this simple clock is good.
Of course, you can always just go the route that I go now which is to use today's technology to tell the time. Mobile phones, microwaves, computers and stereo systems all display the time digitally. In a home with these items, you could also get a neat digital clock that stands on its own but fits in with your high-tech world.
