What's The Big Deal About Mirth Studio Flooring?
The technology behind Mirth Studio tiles has only recently become available. Mirth utilizes the latest advances in printing and screening combined with a proprietary sealing process to make wood tiles that are able to stand up to years of abuse. Our tiles are as durable as any engineered wood flooring product on the market.
This is what makes Mirth unique:
· Our tiles are completely customizable. Whatever design you can think of we can make into a tile!
· Our tiles are easily installed right over plywood or concrete—no sanding, staining or sealing. Just glue them down.
· They are pre finished saving on time and money!
· Our engineered hardwood won’t warp or buckle like typical strip wood flooring.
We are the only company in the world making this type of product.
Here is some basic info:
Our tiles are proudly manufactured in the USA using the highest quality, precision-milled engineered hardwood. We use the finest equipment available and cutting edge technology to ensure a superior quality product that you can feel comfortable knowing will last for many years.

They are pre-finished with 10 coats of non-yellowing, UV cured resin urethane
Mirth Tiles are designed using a tongue and groove construction that holds them in place and adds stability.
They must be glued down over most subflooring—concrete or wood
The tiles are pre-finished using a UV cured poly resin that is comparable to the highest quality of any high end engineered wood flooring on the market. If you would like further protection for your floors for very high traffic areas we recommend using Bona Traffic (please see specifics in installation section) which can be applied over your floors for added protection.
Tiles can be screen sanded and refinished multiple times using our recommended product. (please see installation section)
You can replace a single tile or a small section
The tiles come 14 tiles per box—each box weighs 26 lbs

It is important to note the entire design CAN be sanded off and the tiles stained and finished like a traditional wood floor in the event of a home sale or change of taste.

When ordering Mirth Tiles, please keep in mind that because wood is a natural product no two will be exactly alike. We think this adds to the beauty of the floors and gives them character not found in other types of manufactured tiles. Sometimes the variation is more obvious and for this reason we recommend ordering a 5% overage in case some of the tiles do not meet with your approval.
The tiles are designed to be installed with cross grains and due to the tongue and groove construction, this cannot be changed. Depending on the color of the tile it may be more obvious than others. Lighter color tiles show more grain than the darker colors.
We go to great lengths to send only tiles that meet our high standards but it is important to understand that wood does sometime have flaws. Sometimes the edges are rougher than others but that is because the nature of wood and not considered a defect. If you feel you have received a defective tile, please contact immediately and we will send out a replacement.
