Since alarm clocks are something we use everyday, it makes sense to ensure the one we choose is attractive and complements our bedroom's decor. Select one that matches your colour scheme for a harmonious look, or one in a bright colour that contrasts with the bedroom's wallpaper. A large clock could even act as a bold statement piece in a sophisticated apartment bedroom. Whether plain or patterned, petite or otherwise, an alarm clock could be as stylish as it is practical.
There are pros and cons to both analogue and digital. Traditional-style analogue clocks with a bell on top would perfectly complement a vintage theme, yet you must remember to check the time is always correct and change the batteries when required. Digital alarm clocks are arguably not as aesthetically pleasing, but because they tend to rely on electricity for power they will never display the wrong time (unless there's a power cut!). Also, their luminous numbers can be seen in the dark, so there's no need to fumble for a light switch. If you’re looking for lots of features, many digital alarm clocks function as clock radios or even iPhone docks! If you’re after something fancy, check out alarm clocks with Bluetooth connectivity, or weather stations!
