Stairnose moldings

Provides proper transition for all the steps in your home with hardwood flooring. Buy the Overlap Stairnose for floors that have been installed using the floating installation method. Buy the Flush Stairnose for hardwood that has been nailed or glued down.

Reducer moldings

Ensures proper transition when hardwood flooring meets other floor coverings, such as vinyl, thin ceramic tile, or low-pile carpeting. Use the Overlap Reducer for floors installed using the floating installation method. Use the Flush Reducer on hardwood floors that have been nailed or glued.

Threshold moldings

Typically used at exterior doorways as a transition between flooring and the doorway threshold. It can also be used as a transition from wood floors to different flooring surfaces when the reducer won’t do, such as on high-pile carpet or thick ceramic tile.


Commonly used in doorways to join two wood floors in adjoining rooms. Recommended when making transitions from a wood floor to another floor of about the same height. Also used to provide expansion joints when the floor dimension exceeds a length of 40′ or a width of 30′.

Quarter round moldings

Hardwood flooring must be installed with expansion space between the flooring and the wall to allow for expansion/contraction. This molding adds a finishing touch and conceals the expansion space. Also, may be used under cabinets where wall base won’t fit or at a stairway base to provide a subtle blend between horizontal and vertical surfaces.

Wall base moldings

Give your room a dramatic finishing touch with borders at the base of your wall. Like the quarter round, this molding conceals the required expansion space between the wall and the hardwood flooring. It may also be used under cabinets as a cover for toe kicks.
