Wall Clocks

The market around wall clocks is such that you can pay any price, find any size, and purchase any design finish, easily and – more often than not – with multiple choices available. Wall clocks have seen a massive surge in popularity in recent years, thanks not only to their practical use as a quick way of seeing the time, but also for their statement as a design feature. Many of our retailers offer all manner of wall clocks on their search results pages, from intricate clocks with multiple hands, to modern finishes with no numbers and a plain clock face, to whimsical and novel designs and characters for children’s rooms. So which wall clock is best for your home?


Selecting the right size of wall clock


Many of our members opt for the largest clock possible, and if you have the space then this is a great option to go for, allowing you to cover up a fairly plain wall with something that creates a real design feature. A large wall clock has the power to pull together an overall room design or theme easily, whether it be traditional or modern, though if you opt for a clock which is too large it can overpower a room and look out of place. One way to ensure you select the right size is to measure how high you want the base of the clock to sit, and then work out the ideal diameter from that point – rather then starting at the top. Often, if you start at the top end of where your clock will sit, it can be easy to extend your measurements lower down, forgetting how low the clock will then sit when placed on its hook.


Selecting the right design of wall clock


Many of our retailers are now offering and advertising options which match all different styles of finish, including everything from the intricate finish of Roman Numeral numbers and multiple clock hands, to those which are so clean and modern that they don’t even show any numbers at all. For those members who are looking for a focal element for a large and well lit room, we recommend looking at the slightly more intricately detailed wall clocks as a way of drawing focus and adding some dynamics to your room. In comparison, a darker room may call for a lighter design of clock with less detail, with natural materials often providing a good base for a dark room. TOP TIP: When buying and installing any wall clock, remember that twice every year the clock will need to be taken down and changed in line with daylight saving. Thus, we do recommend that our members make sure someone in the home can reach the clock and take it down!


Finding the best wall clock


When it comes to price, you will find that you don’t need to pay a lot of money to get a wall clock which looks great. Due to its position on the wall, your wall clock will sit undisturbed for most of the year, and so is not subject to the same level of potential damage and wear and tear as other accessories and items in the home. Provided it is hung with a stable enough support base, your wall clock should last a long time no matter how much you pay for it. For the widest selection of wall clocks, look across both homeware and DIY retailers, with homeware stores specialising in more intricate designs while DIY stores tend to offer a decent selection of naturally made and durable wall clocks. To ensure a safe hanging, invest in good quality hooks or nails.
