There are many different design styles that we seek to infuse into our homes and whether that style is country or classic, we often desire to have a level of sophistication throughout our homes. In order to accomplish this, we choose those items that help us further the design theme we have chosen, while adding class and sophistication to the overall home.
Clocks are not often thought of as anything other than methods by which to tell time. But the reality is that clocks of all kinds can be used in a variety of ways as an affordable method by which to decorate a home with sophistication. Consider the way in which clocks can transform an entryway, lighten up a kitchen, and add depth of character to an office space.
When looking to use clocks in your next decorating project consider the following possibilities:
* Using wall clocks as wall art in many different rooms in the home; living rooms, dining rooms, and family rooms will benefit from the addition of sophisticated clocks. Round faced wall clocks work especially well in kitchens or even in outdoor areas of the home.
* Using mantel clocks creatively. Mantel clocks are most often used for which they were named – on a mantel atop a fireplace. But because of their portability, mantel clocks can be used in a variety of locations – on desktops, shelves, bureaus, and countertops – and can transform a space.
* Using grandfather clocks in rooms with limited space. With smaller rooms in which only a few pieces can work, grandfather clocks can add glamour and sophistication without taking up too much space.
