What Finish Is This?

Universal Finish Descriptions for Your Home Hardware

In the world of hardware, finishes tend to be the same universally. With either the finish code or number, you can determine what base material and color you will get in your hardware’s finish. Each finish has a ANSI code, a US code, and then the common name for the finish, which you will typically see on hardware websites or product packaging. This is a comprehensive list of all finishes and their correlating code to help you determine which is the right look for your décor.
