Check out our top tips for making clocks tick
Ensure you get a good night’s sleep by investing in a silent sweep clock if you plan on displaying it on a mantelpiece or shelf in your bedroom, or if it doubles up as an alarm clock.
Have a go at making your own timepiece by buying a mechanism (try Amazon) and drilling a hole through a wooden board to fit it into
place. Draw on the numerals or use something unusual such as wooden spoons or cutlery for a quirky idea.
Choose a clock that fits in with your design scheme and coordinates with your existing decor. For a sleek, modern look, try a design that has marble or copper accents, or for a retro finish, go for a colourful piece with plenty of character.
