There are only a few pieces in a household that are versatile enough to be used in practically every application. Clocks are one of those pieces; able to be hung on the wall, placed in a corner, or put atop a variety of furniture. In fact, in purchasing a clock, consumers are essentially making an investment in that they will likely be able to move the clock around and use it in a variety of ways throughout their ownership of the clock.
* A mantel clock can just as easily sit on a bedroom dresser as it can in a living room over a fireplace. Because mantel clocks are portable they are able to be repositioned whenever a homeowner chooses; this makes them versatile pieces that offer flexibility and creativity to those who are decorating a home. Mantel clocks are manufactured in a variety of styles – everything from traditional to contemporary – and can add a hint of glamour or sophistication.
* A wall clock can just as easily hang on the wall in a family room as it can in a kitchen setting. Some wall clocks resemble miniature grandfather clocks – meant to hang on the wall; others are round faced designs that are more contemporary and lend themselves well to more casual rooms.
* A grandfather clock is welcome – and appropriate – anywhere in a home. As versatile pieces, grandfather clocks can sit in an entranceway where homeowners and visitors are welcomed immediately upon entering the home; or they can sit in a library or dining room.
