Wall clocks are a timeless home accessory that can truly add elegance, class and appeal to any living space in your home.

There are many different types of wall clocks you can hang on your walls; let’s take a closer look at the most important styles to consider when you want to add some great aesthetic appeal to your interior style.

Designer Wall Clock Types

Classic Wall Clocks

These are the clocks that everyone knows and loves: traditional analog clocks with numbers, notches to mark the minutes and hours, and a steady ticking sound that will soon become a welcome background noise in your home. Classic wall clocks tend to be black and white, or at least the face of the actual classic clock tends to be white; borders can include black wood, brown wood, and similar colors.

Today you can often find classic styles in other colors that can add vibrancy and brightness to your home, such as pinks, purples and blues. 

Large Wall Clocks

If you want a statement then you’re in luck: large designs are the perfect practical statement piece that will take up an expansive space on your wall while still letting you tell the time. Large wall clocks tend to be minimalistic, though if you check out the designs at Purely Wall Clocks you can find many other styles as well.

The key to purchasing any clock is to find somewhere in your home that it can easily fit, and to avoid adding wall clutter around it.

Wooden Wall Clocks

If you love the feel of a classic design but you want something that’s more unique, check out wooden wall clocks. Wood is fast becoming a material of choice for many interior designers and its use in clocks can be stunning.

Made with wooden material, which looks truly unique when combined with the trappings of a traditional clock face. A wooden style can definitely be a statement-making piece in any home.

Modern Wall Clocks

If you find classic clocks and other traditional wall clocks styles to be too boring or safe looking, then you’ll definitely want to opt for a modern style. These often come in striking colors and materials, such as metals, sleek silvers, and more.

Modern designs also tend towards the more minimalistic side, as they frequently don’t have numbers and sometimes don’t even have notches to indicate hours and minutes but are certainly striking enough for visitors to notice.

Silent Wall Clocks

Wall clocks come in all shapes and sizes, and some are even silent. Silent wall clocks, as the name suggests, are designed to make practically no sound at all – hooray! This means no steady ticking that, for some, is more maddening than soothing.

Silent models are perfect if you can’t stand the ticking of a standard clock. They do tend to be more classic style, but you can find some silent clocks with other looks as well.

Whatever your personal style and preference, you’re sure to find wall clocks that suit your needs as they definitely have become a centerpiece in many modern homes.
