7 amazing wall clocks your home needs right now

Wall clocks are a decorative way to keep time and make your interior decoration complete. There are different clock types, including mechanical and digital, and high-quality wall clocks will be timeless additions to your home.

Digital clocks are more accurate and good if you want an inexpensive wall clock. However, mechanical clocks have sophistication and tradition that digital clocks lack when you are creating an interior design for your home.

Finding mechanical clocks can be difficult because digital clocks have superseded old-fashioned timepieces. Searching for mechanical clocks is easier online on vintage and antique seller websites or Etsy or eBay. Much more information about digital clocks is available on the internet. With this in mind, we have some suggestions for seven high-quality wall clocks.

Marathon CL030033SV Atomic Wall Clock

The Marathon CL030033SV has an advantage over other wall clocks: You don’t have to adjust the time. This clock uses radio frequencies to automatically set the time in synchronization with the NIST Colorado Atomic clock, a national clock that measures the seconds according to the oscillation frequency of electrons in the cesium atom. The Marathon has multiple temperature and time display modes as well as an easy-to-read face for eight U.S. time zones.

The Hito Wall Clock

The Hito Wall Clock is noted for being a silent yet steady timekeeper. With a stainless aluminum frame and glass cover, the Hito features quartz movements powered by a single AA battery. With its gauges for temperature and humidity, the Hito makes a quiet and elegant addition to your home.

Seiko QXA597ALH Japanese Quartz Wall Clock

The Seiko QXA597ALH Japanese Quartz Wall Clock will give your home a timeless and classic style with Roman numerals. Surrounded by a brown frame with a wood grain finish, the Seiko has a softer appearance suitable for an office or bedroom. Quiet with its electronic oscillator regulated with a quartz crystal to keep time, the Seiko has a signal and timekeeping that’s more precise than mechanical clocks. Only one AA battery is necessary for the clock.

The La Crosse Atomic Wall Clock

Like the Marathon, the La Crosse is an atomic clock with a built-in mechanism to receive radio signals using a transmitter to set the time automatically. The clock features an adjustable daylight-saving feature as well as four adjustable time zones. An advantage to the LaCrosse is its large and easy-to-see numerals.

Cigera 16-Inch Large Kitchen Wall Clocks with Spoons and Forks

For creative kitchens and a nod to whimsy, the Cigera kitchen clock features decorations of spoons, forks, and spatulas. The Cigera is a 16-inch clock with a silent quartz clock movement powered by one AA battery.

DreamSky 13.5 Inches Extra-Large Wall Clock

The DreamSky wall clock has a silent quartz movement for the office, kitchen, or bedroom. Its clear plastic case is easy to clean, and its large numerals are easy to read from far away.

Amazon Echo Wall Clock

The Echo Wall Clock is made from durable plastic material featuring white hands and numbers on a black background. Second and minute hands are LED lights when you set a timer, and you can connect the clock to an Alexa device.

10 amazing ways to hide a clunky printer in your home office
The best DIY solutions for hiding a large printer in your home office
Modern home office layout

Printers are a functional and sometimes essential part of any home office. But one thing’s for sure — they don’t exactly blend into the background. A clunky printer may ruin your vision of a simple Scandinavian home office or coastal-themed reading room. If you're unsure where to hide a printer in your home office so it's not an eyesore, try these tips. You don't necessarily need a hidden printer cabinet (though that works, too) — just a little ingenuity.
Invest in an armoire or secretary desk
Traditional desks are practical, but they’re not exactly discreet. An armoire desk keeps your desk supplies and miscellaneous gadgets out of view while saving you much-needed space. This white and natural oak-colored armoire has an overall measurement of 67.3 inches in height, 31.5 inches in width, and 20.3 inches in depth. More importantly, the interior cabinet measures 33.1 inches in height, 30.2 inches in width, and 19.7 inches in depth.

If you want a smaller desk, consider a secretary desk like this manufactured wood desk that you can place in any part of the home. It measures 30 inches in height, 31.49 inches in width, and 20.07 inches in depth, while the cabinet interior is 19.55 inches in height, 26.54 inches in width, and 18.98 inches in depth. Note that accurate printer measurements will help determine if it fits inside a specific desk cabinet you’re considering. 
Hide it in a rolling file cabinet
For even greater portability, a rolling file cabinet is an ideal choice. Think about it: You can move the cart with the printer in tow anywhere around the house. If you ever need to make extra space for parties or want to rearrange your workspace on a whim, you’ll find that a wheeled cabinet is a worthy investment. This modern rolling file cabinet comes with a cubby box measuring 15.5 inches long, 12.25 inches wide, and 9.9 inches high. The whole box measures 16.4 inches long, 14.25 inches wide, and 13.8 inches high.
