While we depend on them daily we often forget that these functional pieces of equipment can have a gorgeous aesthetic too! They help us to wake up on time and to stay organized the whole day. If you’ve just moved into your college dorm room or are simply looking for a way to spruce up the space, get a clock. Most dorm rooms lack character and are in dire need of updates. Contemporary clocks provide the perfect update. Here are some ways you can use them to add pizzazz to your dorm room.

Create a Layered Look with Small Clocks
Do you have a wall in your room that just looks empty? Why not fill it with small clocks? Group them together to create an artistic focal point that tells a story. A collection of small clocks helps you to keep time and also creates a clean look. You can adorn one wall with the clocks or create a collage by adding other décor pieces like vintage plates or picture frames. You can also create a streamlined look with clocks of different sizes. Dorm rooms may be limited in size but most have walls with plenty of space.

Make a Statement with a Big Clock
Big clocks make a bold statement with their graphic nature. Beautiful and classy ones like the Vintage Wall Clock can deliver some much-needed interest and style. They make great centerpieces as they beautifully contrast with the clean look of most dorm rooms. You can place your big clock next to the door to check the time on your way out or position it against a square-shaped wall to add an element of design.

Choose the Perfect Style
Wall clocks come in every style and design these days. There are traditional ones, transitional ones, and contemporary ones. The clock you choose will determine the look of your dorm room so don’t go out and buy the first one you see. Pick a clock that reflects your style and adds interest to the space. Think of it as a design object and you’ll be sure to choose an alluring piece like the Starburst Wall Clock. If your style is more whimsical in nature consider the Sunbean Wall Clock to go with your dorm room decor and university colors.
