Buying a first home is an exciting – and well, terrifying – experience. There is nothing better than the feeling of independence that comes with owning your own home and for young people who are just starting out this first experience can mark their first foray into the real world on a number of different levels. Of course there are many things to consider with the purchase of a first home, financial considerations notwithstanding. But when the dust clears and the new homeowners find themselves standing in the middle of their new place, it becomes all about decorating. White walls and non-descript design needs to be transformed into a home that says something about the people that live there. And one of the ways that new homeowners can infuse their own personality into their new home is through the use of clocks.
When most people think of a clock they think of a functional piece that is used to tell the time. And this is true. But it is not the only thing that is true about clocks. Modern clocks are as much pieces of furniture as they are time telling devices. Made in a variety of styles including contemporary, traditional, antique-inspired, country, and the like, clocks can be an affordable way to add style to any room in a new home.
*Try a mantel clock on a fireplace. With just this small addition the entire face of the fireplace can be transformed.
*Hang a wall clock in an entranceway where it can add sophistication and its melody can welcome visitors. Or try a wall clock in a dining room where you wish to add an air of formality.
*Try some unique atomic clocks in a bedroom where fun additions can really liven up the room.
