Wall Decor Glossary
A great way to add personality to your child’s room is the use of wall decor. Below we’ve outlined a few key concepts that will help you add a creative touch to your kids' rooms.
- 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.
- 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, merely slip your shelf or ledge in place for a professional quality installation.
- Frame inserts 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.
- Carved or contoured trim, most commonly an architectural element. Often used to frame pictures and mirrors, as well as to add visual interest to picture ledges and shelves.
- 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.
- 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.
- Wallpaper Cutouts
- Pre–pasted wallpaper in decorative shapes. The adhesive is activated by water; cutouts are applied directly to walls. They can be easily removed by peeling them off the wall; any residue cleans off with a damp cloth.
