How to decorate around a large wall clock?
When you are trying to decorate with a large wall clock, you will need to consider how it fits into the overall scheme of things, and more specifically, how it blends with the items near where the clock is placed.
You can use a large wall clock in many parts of the house and the main ones are the living room, dining room, and bedroom. These areas tend to be bigger in space and have a few empty walls where you can impose your creativity.
One method of decorating a large clock is to have a gallery of clocks. The large clock is surrounded by a few smaller ones such that it becomes like a collage, and you will see this trend more as it gets popular.
Secondly, whatever wall decor you use to beautify your walls, be sure to keep them balanced. With a large wall clock in the middle as the focus, you do not want to have one side having much more items than the other and create an imbalance in the visual effect.
I would also advise you to adopt a color scheme that is complimentary. The 3 traditional ones are yellow-purple, orange-blue, and red-green. This is merely a starting point for you to mix different colors together, and you can find out more here.
Thirdly, you can pair your clock with decals that represent quotes you love. I really love those that revolve around family love, which is an additional tool I can use to educate my kids!
Ideas for decorating with a large wall clock
Here’s a bunch of lovely ideas you can use to draw some inspiration for your next wall makeover!
How do you hang a clock without nails?
I’ll be upfront. Hanging a heavy clock without nails is pretty tough, and the heavier your clock is, the more impossible non-nail solutions will work.
Most people who are searching for nail-free solutions do so because they do not wish to damage their walls, fearing that they will leave an irreparable hole or something difficult to patch up. Below, I will be showing you some ways that will not cause any damage or minimal damage.
Depending on the type of wall you have, here are some ways you can use to hang a large clock without nails:
- Command strips (my favorite way to hang wall art)
- Velcro strips
- Adhesive hooks
- Monkey hooks (only for drywall, plasterboard walls)
- Screw-in hooks (only for wooden walls, ceilings)
Before you start hunting down these items, be sure to read the instructions carefully.
Each of them has a recommended weight limit and application type, which means you cannot simply use one on every kind of surface.
You can check out this post that provides tips about hanging wall decor with command strips.
If you really do not wish to use any screws, consider positioning your clock on top of your fireplace, cabinet, or try using an artist easel. Imagine how good it will look on this:
How high should you hang a large wall clock?
Similar to other types of wall decor, you want to place hang your clocks at a height that is comfortable for our eyes to read.
The average eye level is roughly 57 inches, so use that as a guideline.
That said, you need to factor in what items are around the clock.
For example, if you are placing a clock above a console, you would want to give a few inches of space above the tallest piece on the console.
Above sofas and headboards, I recommend allowing for 10 inches of space to the bottom of the clock.
The best tip I can give is to hang one at a height that makes for easy viewing.
