Light Rail Molding

An important finishing touch to kitchen cabinets, light rail moulding hides under-cabinet light fixtures and provides a finished look to cabinetry. The style of the trim should take into consideration cabinet design, the desired overall effect, and the type of under-cabinet light fixtures. The CliqStudios millwork collection includes a number of appropriate finish moldings – a few examples are pictured below.

CliqStudios trim molding is milled from solid oak, maple, birch or cherry hardwood (many manufacturers use a pine or engineered core with a thin veneer). Molding can be ordered in a factory finish to match any of our stains or paints in the CliqStudios collection and is sold in 96″ lengths.
