Waking up to the blare of a clunky alarm clock that you have been using since high school can be a terrible way to start your day.
If you are making the transition to a more modern, minimalist bedroom design, selecting a minimalist alarm clock should be your first step.

Secondly, alarm clocks simply aren’t that expensive. One of the best things about minimalistic design is that because of the simplistic nature, these alarm clocks won’t break the bank.
