The days when the kitchen was merely a room for cooking and laundry are long gone – and these days many kitchens are open-plan, doubling as dining and living rooms. Or your kitchen might comprise just a corner of your studio apartment…
What that means is that virtually any style of clock can be a kitchen clock. In fact, why not browse the huge variety of shapes, styles and shades here and see if something sets the tone for your kitchen’s overall décor!
Clean, simple lines with easily legible numerals are always a popular choice for the kitchen – if only for easy visibility when everything’s on the boil – and that’s where the uncluttered style comes to the fore of clocks like the Garrick in Graphite or White and the Arabic in a range of cool colours all featuring bold, easily readable Arabic numbers in a serif font.
Beyond that, it’s all down to taste. Classic or contemporary, the designs here will chime with the very latest décor trends. For instance, pale gentle-grained wood and stone are both enjoying a resurgence at present – and either or both make an ideal setting for a contrasting Jewel in metallic Garnet or Amber or one of the extensive range of Nordic smaller clocks with rustic wooden finishes and faces in sympathetic natural hues such as Olive, Tan, Cement and lots more.
For the galley-style kitchen with a nautical flavour, the Greenwich Timekeeper World Traveller hints at a seafaring heritage in brass and black or ivory – while the Crofter wooden-finish clocks with their endearing painted hare and stag and Aberdeen Angus images are just made for that cosy country cottage kitchen!
