How to choose the right desk clock
A desk clock will help you keep track of time as you go about your daily task. As the name suggests, desk clocks are placed on a desk or table so that you don't have to constantly gaze at the wall to see what time it is. They are also bigger than regular wristwatches, making it easier for you to know the time with a single quick look. Desk clocks can also be used as décor items. You can choose from a wide range of options to match your design. But which desk clock should you choose? In this short guide, we look at the most important points to keep in mind when shopping for a desk clock.
Like most items in your home, size and scale are important factors to take into account when selecting a desk clock. The standard size of deck clocks is 15cm to 45cm in diameter. To choose the right desk clock size, you need to consider the purpose. For example, are you looking for a functional or stylish clock table? While you can do with a large table clock in a small room as it will create a focal point and draw attention, the same cannot be said about small clocks in a large space. A desk that is too small will look out of space in a large room.
Pick the right theme
When it comes to clocks, many people tend to overlook style and how the clock for desktop will fit into their existing décor theme. In the same way, you choose furniture that works well with other items in your home; you need a desk clock that complements your desk, table, chairs, etc. Luckily, desktop clocks are available in a wide range of styles, so whether you have a traditional, modern, Scandinavian, or retro home, you’re sure to find the perfect desktop clock.
Digital vs analogue
Given that many people today have smartphones that constantly provide them with time, analogue desk clocks have become popular because of their traditional appeal. However, you can still get a digital clock. Theoretically, analogue clocks look great in the living room and kitchen, while digital clocks are best suited for bedrooms as they come with additional features.
