Clocks Can Give a Room New Life, Part II

In the last post we talked about how all of us at one time or another have been struck by the monotony of our home design – especially if we have lived in the home for an extended period of time; and how every so often it becomes necessary to make some changes to update and liven up the rooms in a home.

As also previously discussed it is not necessary to break the bank in order to transform a home. Often just the changing of a color on the walls or the substitution of one accessory for another can make all the difference in the world. To that end, we talked about how smaller accessories – those that are inexpensive but carry a significant decorative punch – can give a room new life and enliven décor that had been seeming out of date and stale. In this role as transformative accessories, clocks have long been able to add a touch of uniqueness to a room without breaking a budget.

Some of the ways in which we can add clocks to a room and help further a design goal without going financially overboard, include:

* Using a mantel clock in a variety of creative ways. Forget the mantel. Try a mantel clock on a desk, a table, even a countertop and see how easy it is to add a touch of sophistication or whimsy to a room.

* Perch an atomic clock in areas of the room that are lacking color or design depth. There are a variety of atomic clocks on the market that are fun and fresh or classic and traditional.

* Wall clocks are great no matter what room you hang them. Don’t be led to believe that wall clocks have to be traditional pieces that hang in a living room; they come in a variety of styles (as many modern as traditional) and are at home no matter where you put them.
