When choosing your home hardware, the variety of options may be overwhelming. To make the task easier, try selecting a finish first. Whether your style is contemporary or traditional, there is a finish to enhance the look of your home.
Oil Rubbed Bronze finish is a chemically darkened surface that simulates aged bronze. This finish is very dark, varies from a deep brown to a dark gray, and usually has copper undertones.
Polished Brass finish is solid brass that is polished and lacquer-coated to prevent tarnishing over time. Polished brass is the most common finish and is usually the finish displayed on the website.
