Choosing the Right Wall Clock for Your Space
Do you find happiness from decorating a space to meet a certain vibe or aesthetic, whether it be ultra-modern; homely; simplistic; beach themed; country cottage or wooden chalet to name a few? When it comes to adding personality and flair to your desired space, few things can deliver the same level of impact as a modern wall clock. Whether it's purpose is to make a bold visual statement; or to fill an empty space on a blank wall; or simply just to create an elegant way to tell the time, modern clock designs lend themselves perfectly to spaces of all kinds. Here at the Clock Shop we offer a huge range of modern wall clocks in a variety of decorative styles and colours to enhance the ambience of any room of the house- whether it be your lounge room, kitchen, bedroom or home office. Choosing the right clock can make all the difference when completing the look and feel of a particular space.
Top Tips for Purchasing Your Next Contemporary Wall Clock
How can you be sure that when you purchase your next contemporary wall clock, you will receive precisely what you want out of the transaction? Some forethought combined with a careful approach to your shopping experience can ensure that the results are exactly what you envisioned. Here are some top tips for getting more value out of purchasing your next contemporary wall clock:
- Size does matter! Consider your space carefully and determine what sort of statement you are hoping to make. Whilst bigger items offer an eye-catching statement piece to enhance a room, sometimes it is the smaller, more delicate wall clocks that can add understated elegance and enhance your room’s overall look. Small clocks in bright and exciting colours present a fun addition to any child's bedroom, providing a splash of colour to the room to enhance the room’s overall energy; whilst on the other hand, simple, functional and sleek designs can be incorporated into a modern space both for practicality and a modern touch
- Take careful measurements. It's important to understand the shape and size of the space in which you'd like to place a new clock. Think about how much space you will need to leave, and size the clock appropriately for a neat appearance.
- Consider different clock dials to match one to your preferred aesthetic. Do you prefer regular numbers or classic Roman numerals? What about no numbers at all? The choice is all yours.
Common Mistakes People Make When Choosing Wall Clocks
Despite their best efforts, some people end up with a clock that doesn't fully satisfy their preferences or meet their interior design goals for a particular space. Leave your trust with our friendly team who are happy to assist you with your selection, and be mindful to watch out for these common mistakes:
- Purchasing a clock that is too big or too small. Even with reliable measurements, you may think that a larger clock will be a strong fit without accounting for a cushion of blank space, or you may go too far in the opposite direction and end up with a clock that’s swallowed by the surrounding walls. Once you have selected a clock that you absolutely love, find an object of similar size for comparison purposes so that you can get a sense of your clock’s exact presence in a room before you buy.
- Missing the opportunity to look at the type of movement in each clock. Want to hear that gentle ticking noise? Look for clocks that haven't gone silent—and if you prefer mechanical, always look to see if the movement is quartz (battery operated).
- Choosing designs that don't mesh well with the rest of the decor. Whilst we strive to provide timeless products in terms of style, always consider whether your surrounding décor will enhance or detract from the style legacy of your clock.
How to Choose a Wall Clock for Your Home

Here at the Clock Shop , we have been helping customers throughout Australia to find and purchase some of the finest timepieces available in the country since 1993.

When it comes to shopping for wall clocks, you have a lot of different options to choose from.

Here at the Clock Shop, we are proud to offer you a selection that spans this entire range.
Think about what you are trying to achieve: What kind of effect are you trying to create with your wall clock. A common story that we hear at the Clock Shop is that customers remember their parents or grandparents having a big, grand, loud grandfather clock against the wall. They cherish these memories and the feelings associated with the clock and the sounds made- from cuckoos to westminster chimes to the gentle tick-tock of the second hand. You may want to recreate these feelings again with a classic clock, or you might prefer to synthesise them with the hallmarks of modern design. Either way, thinking about the effect you want the clock to have in your home will help you narrow your search and select something you will love for many years to come.
