WHAT TYPES OF CLOCK DOES HABITAT SELL?
Looking for a clock that stands the test of time? At Habitat we offer nothing less; high quality clocks in all the latest designs. Take it from us, a blend of practical and aesthetically-pleasing has never looked so good.
But where to start? Well it all depends on your personal taste. Where is the clock going? Is it in a vintage-style bedroom, sitting alongside a grand four posterelaborately draped curtains and an ornate Unless you have princess tendencies, we’re guessing your boudoir doesn’t nod to the entire fairytale shebang, but amongst any of these elements a digital, or LED, clock might look slightly misplaced - save those for your more modern decors. When it comes to the classic, one of our analogue clocks is the only way to go.
Our wide range of clocks covers wall clocks (for those who like the time to be highly visible - literally), practical, yet stylish, desk clocks and everyday essentials, such as the alarm clock. Unless your life really is like a fairytale, and you’re woken by squirrels and sunshine at the window, this one’s a must.
For those who have a quirky eye at times, we also offer charming cuckoo clocks. A bit like Marmite, we find that people either love these or hate them; some find the repetitive chirp somewhat ‘cute’, even comforting, while others can more than live without a live stream of traditional bird-style tweets in their home. If you’re the former, then we suggest perusing our collection of beautifully retro cuckoo designs. If you’re the latter, but still like your clocks to make a stylish statement, then calendar clocks are worth a second look; similarly retro, without an element of twee.
WHAT MATERIALS ARE HABITAT CLOCKS MADE FROM?
When it comes to marrying your clock with your interior decor, then the material from which it is made of is also key. At Habitat our collection offers metal designs, perfect for anyone with a penchant for industrial-style chic. Wooden clocks are available for those who like something a bit more classic, or maybe have a home that errs on the rustic, natural side. Plastic clocks, in all manner of shapes and sizes, from contemporary design to old-school chic, also make up our collection.
WHAT DIFFERENT COLOURS OF CLOCK CAN YOU BUY?
The colour of your clock predominantly depends on the chosen colour palette for the room in which it will live - but there are a few other things you can consider. If it’s for the office, or home study, then it might pay to know that red and orange are the colours said to best aid concentration and increase focus. If the clock is set to sit in a room where you tend to relax, perhaps the living room or the bedroom, grey and silver are believed to soothe the mind. Yellow, the colour of sunshine, is naturally said to heighten levels of happiness.
Mood-enhancing properties aside, from a stylistic point of view you can’t go wrong with classic monochrome, for which reason both black and white clocks are eternal classics - set to be in style for all time.
WHAT SHAPES AND SIZES OF CLOCK ARE AVAILABLE?
When it comes to crafting the perfect clock, we cater to all options, from large clocks to small clocks. Before you decide which one ticks all your boxes, be sure to check the dimensions on the product display page, just to make sure it’s the perfect fit. Speaking of, you will also want to be sure that your chosen clock is the right fit for the aesthetics. If the room’s vibe plays into a more angular vibe, with sharp, structuredthen a square or rectangular shaped clock will complement the room quite nicely. If you prefer a softer touch when it comes to shaping your design, then a round clock is the only way to go.
WHAT ROOMS ARE CLOCKS USEFUL FOR?
Harping back to our statement that clocks present the perfect blend of practical meets aesthetically-pleasing, it’s worth noting here that timepieces are about so much more than being ‘useful’. The right clock can be a welcoming sight in the hallway, a conversation piece in the living room, or an element of the kitchen that beautifully enhances your vintage aga. Alternatively, clocks on our bedside are there to wake us up in the morning, to help (or hinder) our days in the office by allowing us to watch the clock, meet our deadlines and count the hours ‘til home time.
Whatever you wish to do with yours, a clock from Habitat will work any way you want it. We know you’ll be happy with your purchase, both in terms of design and function - there’ll be no wanting to turn back those stylish hands of time.
