For most of us, when we go to work we go there for a specific purpose – to do our jobs to the best of our ability and then go home as soon as possible. But for another large portion of the population work is home on a number of levels; they may spend as much time in their office as they do at home. This is especially true for business owners that are spending a large portion of their time either trying to get a new business off the ground or continuing to foster the success of an existing business. Either way, for anyone who spends a significant amount of time at work, there is no reason for an office to be a blank, utilitarian space that says nothing about the person who works there. With the addition of a few elements – family photos, plants, and a beautiful clock – an office can be transformed as a welcoming and comfortable space.
Clocks are all over offices for a number of reasons. For one, it is important for employees and visitors to be able to tell the time at a glance. For another, clocks are an affordable way to lend an air of sophistication to a lobby area, meeting room, and the like. Wall clocks are especially popular in offices – although they tend to be the plainer, round faced versions.
But individual employees or business owners – simply by including a mantel clock on their desk that best reflects their style – contemporary, traditional, etc. – can make their office their own.
