In the last post, we discussed the propensity of homeowners to only purchase one grandfather clock for their home – thinking that it will only serve its purpose in one spot. The reality is that grandfather clocks can work in a number of different situations and in a variety of rooms, making the purchase of multiple grandfather clocks something that the homeowner may want to consider.
Some of the ways in which homeowners can use grandfather clocks include:
* In an entranceway for those who have a large enough foyer. The grand entrances that come with some of the larger home construction can handle a grandfather clock and will make for a dramatic entrance to any home.
* In a large dining room where it will be at home among other elegant pieces of furniture.
* In a family room where family and friends gather to enjoy each other’s company. This may be the opportunity to use less formal grandfather clock designs. There are many contemporary grandfather clock designs that will work in less formal spaces.
* In a study or library. There is nothing more regal than a grandfather clock in a study or library amidst books and other pieces. This is where a grandfather clock has the potential to look most at home.
The point is that grandfather clocks do not have to be relegated to one room in the home. There are many rooms in the home in which grandfather clocks can fit seamlessly – elevating the décor of the room and the home at large, as well as offering visitors a nice surprise.
