Get that classic interior look when you decorate with clocks & accessoriesClocks are meant to be functional but they can add an interesting look, shape, and pattern to your shelves or desk. Clocks are a home decorating accessory, which are not only functional but uniquely expressive as well. When you incorporate clocks into your home decorating plan, you will be able to add the finishing touches to any room.
Gentle background sounds such as those made by clocks, have a therapeutic effect. Pleasant sounds in the right place and at the right time can soothe and refresh. The soothing ticking of a grandfather clock is a reassuring sound.
There are three types of clocks that are considered classic decorative pieces:
If you want to approach your home with only a subtle focus on a clock accessory, you should consider a wall clock first. Wall clocks work well in small spaces where they can blend into a room décor. Most wall clocks are 2-3 feet wide, and can feature attractive extras like swinging pendulums, and more.
Mantel clocks are some of the most common decorative clocks found in homes. Most of them are affordable and very flexible in going along with any decorative styles. Mantel clocks are often found on the mantel of a fireplace in the main living room. They can be placed effectively also on shelves, windows or desks.
Grandfather clocks are by far the most impressive style of clocks found throughout history. Their intense presence has had an impact on the world of interior design, and is often coveted as a main display in many homes. Grandfather clocks are perfect center pieces, which will set the tone for the rest of the wood furnishings, hardware and decorative items throughout the house.
Decorating with a grandfather clock means that you need to find it crowning spot, perhaps somewhere in the front hall at a distance, as many stand 8 feet tall.
