When I moved into my current rented house, I had very little. No sofa, no TV cabinet, a dining table I got in the ‘seconds’ section of Homebase and chairs I bought online that I put together myself. But over the years, I’ve added a few touches to this house that make it feel more like my own home.
I’ve written before about the ways in which you can prepare your lounge for spring, but one thing I didn’t mention was the use of clocks, like these from Purely Wall Clocks:
From über modern digital style clocks, to old-fashioned, mahogany clocks for the sideboard, you can find a style of clock to suit any room in your house. Not to mention a kitchen clock, of course, is a practical way to ensure you don’t burn your dinner! But maybe consider hanging the clock in a corner to save space in the kitchen.
Clocks also look great when displayed on empty walls and can really make a statement in a minimalist-styled room, especially when using over-sized clocks. You can, of course, think outside the box and choose an unlikely spot specifically to make the clock stand out.
If, like me, you’re not in a position to make major decorating changes in your home, consider using different styles of clocks to bring personality to each room. It’s inexpensive, stylish and easy, and clocks are such a timeless decorative element so you can find a style to suit any décor scheme. Why not replace wall art in your bedroom with an oversized clock hanging above the headboard, or keep it subtle with a smaller clock on placed elegantly on a bookshelf.
However you choose to style your clock, these functional but beautiful touches will be a wonderful addition to your home.
