Finishes Guide

Mountain Plumbing Products provides a variety of exquisite finishes. There is something to match with every application and every type of look you might want. Our wide selection of beautiful and durable finishes utilizes standard industry processes such as: electroplating, powder coating, and PVD (physical vapor deposition). A reasonable degree of color/finish variation can be expected during production line application. There are both metal and plastic finishes available depending on what you choose.

Please Note: Finishes shown on this page are a computer screen representation of the actual finishes we offer. Due to the varying quality of monitors (pixels, size, etc.) there is a slight variation between the website samples shown here and how they appear on the actual product.

Different manufacturers often use the same names for finishes that can vary from company to company. We have a listing that matches finishes from other companies so you can find the right one to blend with your current decor. As some manufacturers use different plating facilities, an exact match can be difficult to find and there is no guarantee of consistency even from the same company. However, because Mountain Plumbing Products uses only one exclusive plating facility for their finishes, our finishes will not vary.
