Having a giant clock in your house is something pretty unusual after all. I don't know about you, but I've rarely seen giant clocks when I've been invited somewhere. I've seen them before, but they were probably so misplaced that I can hardly remember them. Yet we've all seen those clocks that blend so well with an interior design. In a home art magazine or while walking around Ikea: they're everywhere! Wouldn't these beautiful and harmonious objects suit the style of your living room? In this article, we will see how to make the giant clock a useful, elegant and therefore indispensable tool.
Your style is more like that of an industrialist? Beautiful bricks, concrete and patinated wood. Now try to visualize these beautiful clocks from the industrial age, like the one by Big Ben. A beautiful raw clock, with its Roman numerals will be perfect to decorate your wall. With this style of decoration you can even couple your giant clock with a small Nixie clock. This retro and futuristic object will give an added value to your decoration and you can even put it in your kitchen for example.
Personally, I'm more of a bohemian at heart. An interior that is a mix of beauty, cultures and very warm colours. You will find this beautiful wall clock with a design of feathers or leaves for a more tribal and natural decor.
That's right! Now there's no chance of forgetting time and getting stuck at the last minute. You probably have a lot of things to do in your life. Whether it's personal projects in your free time, meetings to plan, or working irregular hours. You can't afford to forget where you are during the day. These giant clocks are ideal for that: you can't miss them!
It's also a plus for smartphones and eyes glued to the screens. Looking at the time and starting to navigate it is no longer necessary, as your clock tells you exactly what time it is. Now you can have meals with friends or use your phone for social occasions.
This is a big question for a lot of people. You don't necessarily know how to place your clock on a wall or how high it should be. Place it too low and your room will lose all its harmony. And if you put it in your toilet or facing your tiles on the side of your fireplace, you're not sure it will do much good.
Let's see in detail how to find the right location and choose the right height.
The size of giant clocks often makes them rather heavy, and precautions must be taken when installing them. These objects are not suitable for basic fastening systems, which generally do not support more than 1 kg. In most cases, you will have to make a hole in your wall.
The best way to do this is to drive a nail or wall plug through the hole and put the notch of your clock in it. This will be strong enough and you will not have to worry about whether your clock will fall or not.
Afterwards, the choice of a really giant clock (74 cm in diameter for example) will push you to hang it a little higher. It is so imposing that we advise you to place it about 2 m above the ground, as this will not affect its readability.
The last important point is the size of the room in which you are going to install your clock. If you have very open spaces, don't hesitate to hang it rather high up. On the contrary, if you are rather small, you can place your object lower.
For example, if you want to contemplate your decoration from your sofa, you can place it a little lower. Make sure that it barely protrudes from the sofa (20 cm above) and you will have the ideal height.
To conclude, I will say that you just have to go for it if you don't have your large clock yet. Do not hesitate to look at our collection of giant clocks to find one of quality that will perfectly decorate your home. For those who already have their clock and don't know what to do with it, don't wait any longer to take it out of the attic! Follow our advice to make it an essential element of decoration.
