Selecting a clock to add to your home can be a difficult task in some cases. Maybe you've never purchased a clock before, maybe your a pro; either way this guide is for you. In this post we will discuss the buyers guide to purchasing a clock for your home.
Selecting the clock should be based on the following:
Style - the "look" that best fits your home
Size - always measure the "footprint" where you plan to place your new clock
Features - mechanical or quartz? Night time shut off? what chime songs does it play?
Where do you think you'd like a clock to go in your home?
There are clocks made for every place in your home including the ceiling.
Table/mantle clocks are great for display ledges/cabinets.
Wall clocks can be hung on any wall in your home.
Grandfather clocks take up a relatively large space and usually require a vacant corner to be added to your home.
The next question is what design best fits your home decor. for example view the 2 products below:
Left image - sleek black finish with a smooth curved wooden case creates a modern look
Right image - carved redwood with notches creates a more traditional look
2 different wall clocks can have 2 different styles of decor they fit best in. Choose the clock that you think best compliments the colors and design of your home.
Clocks come in all sorts of shapes and sizes.
Table clocks can be both small and simplistic as well as large and extravagant, choose the size that best fits your home for the area you plan on placing it. A huge luxury gold classical table clock likely wouldn't fit well in a modern simplistic home decor.
Wall clocks come in tiny sizes and ridiculously huge sizes. Some wall clocks you can barely read from the other side of the room and some don't even fit on the wall they're so huge. Both have their place in both traditional and modern decor but finding the right size for your home can be a challenge.
Grandfather clocks usually require about a 20x20 inch space to be placed. Once again these clocks can range from small in size to huge and bulky. Your decision should take into account the size of the space you are trying to fill as well as which style of Grandfather clock will fit your house/room best.
Mechanical - wound up for power, some maintenance required, much higher quality
Night time shut-off?
This is a feature that allows the clock to stop its chimes at night time to stop it from waking you and your family up at night.
What kind of chime would you like to hear when the time comes? There are many different types of song clock chimes can play. Well known examples could be; Westminster, Whittington, St. Michael.
Finding a high quality clock for a cheap price is not easy nowadays. It seems like there are clocks for under $50 buy you can tell they are low quality and then there is the highest of quality grandfather clock pricing in at around $12000.
Finding a clock you think will fit your home is only worth it if its within your price range.
