Whether you race against the clock, or sit around and let the minutes idly pass you by, time is a currency we all only have 24 hours of in a day. Keeping track of time is as important in modern society as eating and sleeping. For this reason we surround ourselves with clocks from the moment we wake up until we go to bed.
Not every clock is the same and neither is every space that needs a clock and often we find ourselves with a clock and no space for it or vice versa. Use the following tips to help you make the most of every second, and space:
Bigger is better
Make a true statement with an oversized clock against an empty interior wall. This is great for living area spaces or even undercover outdoor walls in a patio area. Oversized, transparent metal clocks work well in big, empty spaces as they add character to the wall, while still maintaining the feeling of space and time.
Shelves are great for displaying precious items and other collectibles that you wish to display. Place a tasteful mantle clock on a shelf in the lounge or library not only to fill the space but keep you informed of what time it is.
In the heat of time
As most of us spend a considerable amount of time in the kitchen, it is vital to have a good, reliable clock within sight. Keeping track of time in the kitchen is very important, especially in the mornings around the breakfast table or when you are making your favourite recipe
Time as an art form
Clocks don’t have to be boring, functional items that clutter up a space. Clocks can be a piece of art that enhance the ambiance of a room while telling a story as old as time itself. Use interesting shapes and sizes to add fun to a space while still keeping it functional.
After a long day at the office, the best place to be is snug in your bed. It is a place of rest and relaxation, but most of all the place where you recharge your energy. The last thing you want is a big, bulky clock in the bedroom reminding you of how much time is left before you have to get up early the next morning for work. Place a small, appropriate bedside clock on your nightstand so you can easily hit the snooze button to sleep in just a few more minutes.
