Grandfather Clocks for Large Homes

03.31.08

Grandfather clocks are recognized as much for their statuesque height as they are for their beautiful melodies denoting the hour. The beauty of the grandfather clock – its height – is also the factor that stops many people with smaller spaces from making a purchase of a grandfather clock. But with larger homes, a grandfather clock has plenty of rooms in which it will fit most perfectly, including:

* A living room. A formal living room has traditionally been the place for a grandfather clock as the clock fits with the overall formal sophistication of the room. This is also the room in which the melody of the grandfather clock is most at home.

*Foyer. Larger homes tend to have grand foyers in their entranceway – making it the perfect spot for a grandfather clock. The height of the grandfather clock is especially appropriate in an entranceway as it welcomes family and friends with its stately height and beautiful song.

* Library. A library/office is a bonus room usually reserved for larger homes. This quiet spot can be a lovely place for a grandfather clock, especially amidst the books as it may have traditionally been many centuries ago.

* Dining room. For homes with larger dining rooms, there is often enough space to fit a grandfather clock – allowing it to anchor the room and bring an air of sophistication and intimacy to a room where loved ones gather over meals.

Grandfather clocks are extraordinarily versatile in the manner in which they can be used and the rooms in which they can be placed comfortably. Homeowners will find that no matter where they put their grandfather clock they will achieve the style for which they were aiming.
