Denver Carpet Company Asks You to Consider This: Clocks as Decorations

There’s something, well, absolutely timeless about using clocks to decorate. Of course, the style you select is entirely a matter of your own personal taste, but, first, you must consider how you will use the clock in order to find the perfect one. Since it’s about time to think beyond the typical utilitarian function of timepieces, Sloane’s Carpet Secret carpet company has listed some things you should consider before going shopping.

Hang Time
Where will you hang a clock? What’s the space you have to fill? Know your specifications before you head out the door to make sure you get just what you need. Clocks can be used in all rooms of the house including entryways, stairwells and hallways. Don’t be afraid to play around with the sizing; sometimes an oversized clock in a small space adds an element of unexpected fun.

Keep in mind, not all clocks need to be hung on the wall even if that was their original design. Many oversized wall clocks add design flair on top of a dresser, leaning against a wall or even on the top of cupboards.

Consider if the clock will be complementing other items on your wall or table. Do you need a specific color? Are you seeking a clock from a particular decade? The only mandate is to follow your own personal style. Blending colors and antiques with modern designs work, if that works for you.

What Time Is It?
If you need a timepiece to actually tell the time, it’s important that you guarantee that the clock you purchase does in fact keep time if you purchase one second hand. If that’s not essential, there are lots of intriguing ways to use non-working clocks for decoration including taking a clock apart and layering the coils, hands and face in a display.

Face Time
Circles, ovals, squares and rectangles. Roman numerals, standard or none at all? The face of your timepiece is where all the personality comes in. Mix and match to your heart’s content, but find a face that speaks to you!
