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.*
First, get the clock. Search eBay, Amazon or Gearbest for 3D white LED clock and check the dimensions. The 400mm JUTIS black glass door has a space for a 190mm 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’).
*Works with other stuff
This idea not only works with the black JUTIS door on IKEA Kitchens, it ought to work with the diffused glass or plastic doors found on other IKEA storage.
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.
