In the United States there are two finish code systems: The most notable exceptions to this rule are US32, polished stainless steel, and US32D, satin stainless steel. The corresponding BHMA finish codes would be for polished stainless and for satin. BHMA finish codes are different for different base metals. Base metal can be important when choosing hinges for interior vs.
Hinges in finish are much less expensive than those in finish, and it is absolutely fine to use them in dry interior environments.
If you can see your reflection clearly in your doorknob or kick plate, for example, it is safe to say that it is a polished finish. I have included a raw photograph of a polished finish in the lower right hand corner of the photo below. The opposite of a polished finish is a satin finish. You cannot see your reflection in a piece of hardware with a satin finish without quite a bit of imagination. Notice there are several finishes that might be described as slightly luminous shades of gray.
Right here is where the most trouble is with finishes. There are subtle differences between them. To the untrained or uncaring eye these four finishes may appear exactly the same, but all it takes is the installation of an antique nickel lever on a door right next to another door that has a satin nickel lever on it to earn somebody an expensive paperweight.
This is because it has a mirror-like finish that reflects back all the colors that are in the room. Yet actually most finishes have a degree of reflectivity that will show up in photos. All in all it is a lot easier to identify the finish yourself on the job while looking at finish samples than to send a photo of the item to, for example, your hardware dealer for identification.
Most established door hardware manufacturers have brochures that accurate depict an assortment of finishes.
