We all know the moment. Your head just hits the pillow when… “ping!” The enticing sound of a new text message causes your hand to automatically reach for the phone charging on your bedside table. The next thing you know, you’re messaging, then scrolling, and down the rabbit’s hole you go. Not only can the content keep you awake, but the blue hue of the screen also mimics daylight and is scientifically proven to keep your brain in “alert” mode says Harvard and the Better Sleep Council.
If you’re as big a fan of sleep as we are, jump on the “phone-free bedroom” bandwagon. We’re confident it will lead to a cozier night and brighter morning. To help make the transition both smooth and stylish, we’ve rounded up our favorite alarm clocks in every style. Function: check. Form: check check.
Retro & Cool
If you have a penchant for the past and dig vintage finds, these retro-inspired clocks have your name on them. Whether you love straight lines and Mid-Century design or a more Traditional look (think hammer-and-bell headboard), these options bring a striking Mad Men’esque vibe to your bedside.
Classic & Timeless
(Pun intended.) The time-honored shape (wow, they just keep coming), polished silver finish, and antique numbering brings to mind a relic passed down through the family. Complete the look by arranging on a stack of vintage books, nestled next to a bud vase and small catch-all for jewelry and glasses.
Organic & Modern
Woodgrain textures meet clean, simple lines and large, digital clock faces for a balanced appeal. Bonus: one also includes Bluetooth speakers perfect for your bedtime playlist, soothing nature sounds, and morning jams.
Colorful & Fun
For those who don’t take themselves too seriously, here are some options to wake up with a smile. Geometric and playful shapes and a soft blush hue make an ultra-cute addition to your bedside vignette. We love the illuminating glow feature for a more pleasant wake-up call.
