5 Tips on choosing the right clock
- Where is a good spot for the clock?
To pick the right clock, start with the surrounding before zooming into the clock itself. Where exactly do you plan to put it? – in which room, on which wall or which table top. Is the spot you pick somewhere visible to you at a comfortable angle so that you won’t strain your neck when you check the time? It is also not ideal for the clock to be put next to a window; the brighter exterior will reflect on the lens, making the hands hard to read.

- What is the right size?
Like the correlation of all interior design elements, the clock needs to be proportional to the size of the room and the wall space.
If you want the clock to be an eye-catching decorative piece in your living room, it could be 40cm or even 50cm+ in diameter, especially when the clock is going to be seen from a distance. However, you need to see if there’s enough buffer space and that the clock is not sharing the wall with other decorative items or it would look too cluttered.

- What is the right material?
If you already have a theme for your room and there’s a kind of ambience you want to create, the right clock material will help enhance it – more polished materials with fine details to go with elegant and glamorous, natural wood with a striking grain texture for a country farmhouse design, rustic metallic for industrial and glass for minimalist or retro.

- What is the right colour?
As for the colour of the clock, is there a dominant colour tone of the room? Match the colour of your clock with an existing colour of an item in the room for stronger cohesion. You want to easily spot the clock when you check the time, consider picking a colour that creates a light and dark contrast against the wall.
If it’s a neutral colour room, consider picking a bright colour clock, which will also serve as an accent item, or the other way round, i.e., a neutral colour clock for a bright colour room.
