College is a place of self-discovery; where we go to learn more about the many professions available to us and a place where we can further explore our own sense of independence. Of course, part of this process for those who live away at school is the exploration of our own space. Decorating a college dorm room – or apartment – for those who have been under their parents’ roof up until this point – can instantly grant a student a sense of freedom they may have previously never experienced. And choosing those items that best reflect their own sense of style can mark the beginning of a time of growth.
One of the items that is never out of place in a home of any kind – even a college apartment or dorm room – is a clock. Not many things can so purposefully reflect form and function; of course we all need clocks to tell the time, but a well-designed clock can come in a variety of styles that can showcase the style of the overall room.
For college students who are generally fighting space constraints, wall clocks can be quite effective in their role. Wall clocks can be found at reputable dealers such as 1-800-4CLOCKS where shoppers can choose between the sleek lines of contemporary styles, the brushed metal and distressed woods of antique style clocks, and a host of other designs that will help create a cohesive design for a particular space.
Those looking for a gift for a high school graduate this spring may consider choosing a beautifully designed clock to travel with them throughout their journey in education; it could easily wind up in their first home someday – a tribute to their years of just starting out.
