Molding is a piece of narrow wood added to customize a cabinet to the space. Molding can be used to cover gaps or indiscrepancies, serve as a personalized decor or accent, or both.

    Molding refers to any piece of wood that is added to the cabinet. This includes crown molding, which is affixed to the top of the wall cabinet to the ceiling; scribe molding, which covers gaps between the wall and cabinet box during installation; and light rail molding, which is finished at the bottom of the wall cabinet and hides lighting fixtures mounted beneath the box. The toe kick is also technically a molding; hiding the bottom edges of the base cabinets.
