    This writer asked five of his closest friends if they have a clock and all of them said 'Yeah, on my phone!' -- which makes sense because clocks are probably the last thing on our mind to purchase when we finally move out of a home with a clock (read your parents' house). But what if we told you in your quest to make your home feel a bit more like home, you need a clock? It might be the missing piece that will bring together the whole look.

    So whether it's a large, statement wall clock with macrame work or an elegant, minimalistic one that goes with your minimal decor theme, we've picked out the best clock styles that you absolutely must check out. We've thrown in a few bedside options that more that are super functional as well (no none of those horrible ones where you need to solve math problems to turn the alarm off) 

    The Budget Clock

    Tromma

    Okay, we had to pick this Tromma clock from IKEA because of how something so ridiculously cheap can still be so chic -- ah the Scandi aesthetics. This round analogue clock comes with numbers that are little holes on the dial, so prop it against a coloured wall, and instantly make this white clock stand out even more.

    Amazon always throws us some really cool things and that's the case with this LED clock. Its got an alarm feature, the dial is powered by bright LED lights which can be adjusted and shows time in both 12- and 24-hour format. Keep it at your work desk or even by your bedside, just remember to reduce the brightness if you are keeping it next to your bed. You don't want a powerful beam blinding you when you are groggy and sleep dead.

The bells function just like how they should and come with an easy on-off switch so that you can go back to sleep after hitting the off button.

    The More Than Just A Clock Clock

    IKEA PS 1995

    2490

    We love this desk/wall analogue clock from IKEA. It does more than just tell time. It's also a nice little storage unit that can hold small things such as keys, wallets, watches, and things you'll need regularly. We like the keyhole shape and that you can hang it on a wall or place it on a desk. In terms of telling time functionality, the dial is a bit small and the numbers printed are tinier, so you might have to take a good look if you are trying to read the time.

    Upcycled, quirky and kitsch defines your decor aesthetic, then this table clock on Pepperfry should pique your interest. It's the front profile of a Vespa-like scooter with the headlights being replaced by an analogue clock. The dial features Roman numerals and the entire piece is made from metal.

    If you need a conversation starter and to go with your expensive taste in doing up your space, then this hexagonal analogue clock from Yours Concretely is a good option. It's a designer piece made from concrete and feature gold accents on the face. We are not quite sure if you will be able to tell time easily given the shape, but hey, it's designer!

    The Pendulum Clock But Modern

    Charm Pendulum Wall Clock Medium

    We don't even need a clock let alone a pendulum clock but this modern take on the classic pendulum design has us wanting to splurge. We love the combination of the shapes -- the rectangular frame with rounded edges and the round dial and pendulum -- and the minimalistic design, and the striking gold on grey colour scheme. It'll definitely add a luxe quotient to your space. It's made by Karlsson, a Netherlands-based brand.

    The Cuckoo Clock

    24800

    It will be a bit cuckoo of us if we didn't add a Cuckoo Clock to this list. But bear in mind that cuckoo clocks are expensive and if you are looking to splurge, then by all means do it. Kismet Watch Company, a Bangalore-based retailer of authentic German Cuckoo clocks in India has a whole range of cuckoo clocks to check out. We particularly love this traditional cuckoo clock that comes with cuckoo sounds every hour and is handmade with German black forest wood.
