STYLISH KITCHEN CLOCK IDEAS
Kitchens are quiet often the melting pot of a house, where people gather and a lot of time is spent in not just activities that are pertaining to a kitchen but also just to hang around after a day’s work. As a result of this, it almost becomes a place where people spend a majority of their time and therefore, it is imperative that you keep track of time while you are there. But then again we should be careful that it shouldn’t be just some random clock from the store whose sole purpose in life is to show time while looking ugly all the while. When we have spent a whole lot of time planning meticulously for each and every detail in the décor of the kitchen, it would be grossly unfair and lazy of us to bring in a charmless clock. We can never underestimate the dampening effect a charmless clock can have on the entire environment. So we have to hone our clock-selecting skills as well, if we desire to have a chic kitchen while at the same time not be late for our daily appointments.
Wall clocks are the definite rage everywhere now. They can serve an extremely significant purpose other than just doing the obvious job, that is showing time. They can become the breath-taking center of attention of a space. Wall clocks can transcend the boundaries of purpose of a typical clock and become something more, which will be looked at by people even if they have all the time in the world. Wall clocks come in varieties of designs and colors. They can be used as a contrasting character with the wall in the background, or just have hands hinged on a central peg. The wall clocks are a bet that one can lose very seldom.
The placement of a wall clock also adds a very important touch to the overall effect it can have on a kitchen space. We can always go the traditional path and put them up on the most vacant wall where it can gather all the eyeballs, or we can actually go in and have some fun. One idea is to hang the clock from the ceiling using a steel support, to provide a nostalgic platform vibe, or get a special finishing done on the wall exclusively for the clock.
Sure, the pedestal clocks belong to the generation of the dinosaurs and just like them, it too did go extinct, but that never was supposed to mean that their aesthetic appeal too vanished with them. Even today a pedestal clock can hold its own against the best piece of décor element and for this sole purpose alone, it always pays off to have a pedestal clock in your kitchen.
The choices that one can make in clocks or timepieces for the kitchen is numerous. The only mistake we can make while selecting them is being oblivious to the fact that it can have a profound impact on the overall essence of the room and because of that we cannot be complacent or indifferent in the process of selection.
