Cahaya LRT Station stands as a low-rise station along two tracks for trains traveling in opposite direction. However, the station was constructed as a subsurface structure significantly lower than most other conventional subsurface stations in the Ampang Line, mainly those along the Miharja-Cahaya route. Initially, the Station itself was not constructed with any public walkway running underneath the tracks and platforms, as other subsurface stations along the route have. However, an overhead bridge and elevators were built later.
Patrons are also provided with stairways on opposite sides of the track of a road-based flyover (Jalan Cahaya 1) over the tracks just northeast. The Station's lower height may be attributed to the aforementioned flyover constructed close to the Station, restricting the height of the adjoining tracks towards the Ampang terminal, thus affecting the height of the station.
As the Station is subsurface and features two side platforms, the station designates individual ticketing areas for each of the Station's two platforms at their level, ensuring any access to trains traveling the opposite direction is not freely possible. The principal styling of the station is similar to most other stations in the line, featuring curved roofs supported by latticed frames, and white plastered walls and pillars. Because stairways are only used to link street level with the station's ticket areas and platforms.
However, wheelchair ramp and lift were built later. The Station now accommodative to disabled users.
