A chic wall clock as a functional decorative object
Wall clocks are still in demand in the age of smartphones, tablets and the like. Because they not only indicate the current time, but also serve as tasteful wall decorations. This allows you to set colorful accents or underline a puristic furnishing style. And the nice thing is: you don't have to choose a wall clock. Simply select several items and distribute them around your apartment - one clock goes into the living room, the other you hang up in the hallway and a third looks good in the kitchen.
Let yourself be inspired by the different shapes and colors of the wall clocks in the online shop and discover the numerous designs.
Analog and digital wall clocks
The classic among the wall clocks is the analog clock. It consists of a clock face, which often has Arabic or Roman numerals. Analog wall clocks are available in a particularly large selection and are characterized by a variety of modern, classic or nostalgic designs. In most cases, it is a quartz clock that requires very little maintenance. It is only necessary to change the battery every now and then and you switch the models to winter or summer time twice a year.
In contrast, there are wall clocks that work digitally. They are usually available as wireless weather stations and show the time, the date and indoor and outdoor temperatures. Digital wall clocks update themselves regularly via radio, which means that the time display is very precise. The display of a radio-controlled wall clock is generally illuminated, so you can easily read the time even in the dark. This makes the digital versions ideal for the bedroom.
Which designs are in demand for wall clocks?
We offer the majority of our wall clocks in a round format. Some models, especially weather stations, are rectangular or square. If you want an analog clock, you have the choice between versions with and without a frame. The design of the wall clocks ranges from simple to eye-catching. How to find a suitable clock to match your living style and taste:
A wall clock in black and white goes well with a modern, minimalist furnishing style.
Clocks with a round MDF wood panel with a worn look exude vintage flair.
Wall clocks with coffee or cupcake motifs are recommended for the kitchen or dining room.
Wall clocks made of metal look very elegant, the design of which is more reminiscent of a sun than a clock.
Tip: If you want your clock to look appealing on the wall, play with color contrasts. Dark clocks look great on a light wall; conversely, you can effectively stage a light wall clock on dark wallpaper.
How do I find the right place for my wall clock?
Whether in the living room or bedroom, in the hall or in the kitchen: When choosing a place for your wall clock, you should make sure that you can read the time from as many positions in the room as possible. An area between two deep cupboards or shelves is therefore less recommended. It is best to hang your wall clock a little above your eye level. For a coherent overall picture in the room, orientate yourself on other wall furniture or decorations.
If you don't have a lot of free wall space available, use the space above a room door for your wall clock.
Tip: In order to always be able to see the time clearly, you should check the clock hang up so that the light does not fall directly on the dial. You should therefore avoid installing it directly opposite a window.
Once you have chosen a location, if necessary, climb a stepladder and mark the spot for the hook with a pencil. Then hit a nail into the wall with the hammer and hang your wall clock on it.
Mounting with the help of dowels is somewhat more complex, but more reliable and particularly suitable for large, heavy wall clocks. To do this, drill a hole in the wall, vacuum the drill hole and insert the dowel. Then turn the screw into the dowel so that it is firmly in place. Now you can attach your wall clock to it.
