Whether you are working with a small room or a large room, the effort to design a room effectively – to make the best use of the space you have been provided – is the challenge for every homeowner. If you include too many pieces in the room it quickly becomes cluttered, include too little and it looks sparse and unfinished; such is the reason that room design is often left to the professionals.
When it comes to appropriately filling a room, however, the introduction of a grandfather clock is a great way to add scale to any sized room. And by including a piece that delivers a significant return on the investment, homeowners will easily feel that they got their money’s worth with a purchase of a grandfather clock.
Grandfather clocks have always had the reputation for being high style and the ultimate in elegance. Generations ago, the purchase of a grandfather clock was a very big deal indeed; they were considered luxury items and not every household was able to afford them.
Today, while grandfather clocks are much more affordable for the average homeowner, they still hold the vast appeal that they always did; they are one piece of furniture that is always able to “fill” a room with its presence. The height of a grandfather clock alone is more than enough to add drama and scale to any room regardless of its size. With smaller rooms, a grandfather clock acts as a decorative palette without overwhelming an already tight space with clutter; with larger rooms, a grandfather clock offers a focal point, drawing visitors’ eye and adding boundaries to a room.
