AbstractAn improved decorative molding system for covering the joint formed between a countertop surface and an adjacent wall surface. The system includes a molding strip for covering the joint, the molding strip having an L-shape formed by a pair of integrally joined legs. The legs have respective outside surfaces together forming a gradually curved, generally concave front face of the strip and respective inside surfaces which are generally planar and substantially perpendicular. The legs have bifurcated inner portions together forming outside and inside walls. The outside and inside walls are relatively gradually and sharply curved, respectively, and merge together at their outer ends to define therebetween a hollow cavity which is generally triangular in cross-sectional shape. Each leg has a flared outer edge portion which angles inwardly with respect to the planar extent of the inside surface of the leg. The system also includes a corner piece for covering a gap between adjacent ends of sealing strips which extend generally perpendicularly with respect to one another, an end cap for closing an end of the molding strip, and a joiner piece for closing a gap between inline sealing strips.
