The problem with an uncluttered kitchen was finding a place for a kitchen clock. Two years later I had a eureka moment for a place for this ‘3D LED’ clock, powered by a regular USB charger. A glue gun fixed it in place.
Total time 10 minutes to find USB cable and 10 minutes to find glue gun = 20 minutes.
£10 – £15 for the clock which may or not come with a charger.
IKEA item used:
- Used IKEA JUTIS door – other see-through furniture doors may be suitable.*
- Digital kitchen clock
- Glue gun
- USB cable
Instructions for digital kitchen clock
My clock is 210mm long so it’s glued behind the door at an angle until I find a smaller size clock. But hey, it works! (It doesn’t seem to matter if the leftmost hour digit is obscured – that hour position only shows a ‘one’).
Oh and another thing. The space above the kitchen wall unit was just tall enough to fit a Sony sound ‘bar’ that’s normally used under a TV. This model HT-X2 has Chromecast built-in so you can use a Google device to play music while your food cooks.
