They are found everywhere: sitting rooms, dining rooms, bed rooms, passages, kitchens, toilets, offices, churches… everywhere! We tend to overlook its importance in our lives and how much it helps us organize our lives. Just try and imagine it not being there and you’ll truly understand how vital a wall clock is.
The most popular example of the clock is the Big Ben of London, located in the clock tower at the eastern end of the Houses of Parliament. We cannot have this in our homes but our clocks can be our own imitation of Big Ben! Apart from their primary function of keeping time, wall clocks are also used for decorative purposes. A carefully selected one can really transform your home if it rhymes with the décor.

There are many more ways in which you can use these time pieces but the ones mentioned will do for now. Whatever function you need them for requires you getting one that will serve it well and at the same time will be appreciated. Thus you need to apply some caution. Hey, relax, it’s not rocket science!
One of the first things you need to consider is what type of clock you need. Wall clocks are available in a large variety of styles and designs and choosing the right one will be dependent on its purpose. For example, do you want one that will chime with each hour strike, or one that can double as an alarm clock? If you do, a musical wall clock is right for you.
Also, you will have to consider the visibility of the clock which is determined by the kind of display. Be sure to choose a large faced clock as you don’t want people to strain their eyes before knowing what the time is.
Other considerations include shape, make and color of the clock. And the clock must blend in with the décor of the room.
