Wall Decor Glossary

Wall decor is the perfect way for your teen to express their style without having to make a huge
commitment (like painting a wall or investing in a rug). Below we've outlined a few key concepts that will
help you add a creative touch to your teen's space.

Wall Decor Glossary

D-Rings

Metal loops shaped like the letter "D" turned on its side, affixed to the back of wall decor items so they can easily be hung on hooks or nails.

Decals

Removable wallpaper in decorative shapes. Decals can be easily removed or repositioned by peeling them off the wall; any residue cleans off with a damp cloth.

Keyhole Mount

A hole shaped like an inverted keyhole on the back of a frame or other wall decor item. The wide bottom portion slips over the head of a screw or nail, which then slides into the narrower slotted portion to hold the item on the wall.

Simple Mount System

An exclusive system featured in many of our shelves and ledges. This system has a wall-mounting bracket with a built-in bubble level that ensures proper placement. Once the bracket is secure, simply slip your shelf or ledge in place.

Mats

Frame inserts made of high-quality card stock. A mat acts as a frame within the frame, presenting the picture in a more formal and aesthetically balanced way. A mat also protects the image by preventing it from coming into direct contact with the glass.

Moulding or Molding

Carved or contoured trim, most commonly an architectural element. Often used to frame pictures and mirrors, as well as to add visual interest to furniture, ledges and shelves.

Plexiglas®

A trademark of the Rohm and Haas Company. A clear, highly durable form of acrylic plastic often used in picture framing as a lightweight, shatterproof alternative to glass.

Shadowbox

A deep frame with enough space between the glass and the backing to display three-dimensional objects or two-dimensional objects set at various depths.
