The rise of smartphones and smartwatches has slowly relegated clocks to a thing of the past. So, what does time do for its biggest symbol as it passes? Turn itself into a trendy and decorative showpiece!
With horology becoming the new-in trend, wall clocks are back in fashion—although, one could argue that they never really left– and are back in the spotlight with a vengeance. Wall clocks today are trendy, fashionable, and statement décor pieces while still being functional; we are obviously assuming you don’t always walk around your house with your phone in your hands.
So, how can you incorporate wall clocks in your home décor in a deliberate and artistically-curated manner? Well, we have got some striking wall clock design ideas for you.
10 Incredible Wall Clock Designs to Spruce Up Your Walls
As with all home décor items, the key to choosing a creative wall clock design lies in scale. While a big wall clock looks great on an open wall, it wouldn’t look so hot when it finds company with multiple wall art pieces in a small room.
Similarly, some of the best clock decoration ideas advocate against adding large wall clocks in the bedroom. After all, all that ticking will be super annoying when you try to sleep after a long day at work. Or even anxiety-inducing, if you have just finished watching Interstellar.
All in all, wall clocks make for a vibrant accessory when added to the living room, gallery walls, and entryways. And now, we will hop on the train that will lead us through the finest wall clock design ideas, making you want to keep track of time.
