So, when choosing a clock with a pendulum, it is worth thinking, first of all, about the size. It can be a very compact model in a modern style, and a massive solution, where the pendulum is placed behind the door with a viewing glass. Be sure to consider the size of the room. Hours should not occupy a maximum of space and crush their dimensions. Yes, today’s popular trend suggests placing a large clock in a room, but this applies only to flat models.

Another important aspect is the materials. Consider whether a classic case made of natural wood or a metal case is preferable to your interior, and maybe you like the combined case of wood and metal. A wooden pendulum clock is usually made from oak, walnut or cherry.
