On Friday afternoon, the MIRA team hosted a barbecue to celebrate the hardwork and dedication of our installers. The installers, the office team, family and even pets came out to enjoy a burger, music, and good company. Despite experiencing an unseasonably cold and wet June, on Friday the rain held off and the sun even peaked out from behind the clouds for a few minutes to give us good barbeque weather.
Thank you to everyone who put organized the event and those who came out. See you next time!

Flooring samples allow you to envision how the colour and texture will look in your space. Without seeing the whole picture, it’s often challenging to imagine how the sample will look with preexisting paint, window coverings, or furniture. We encourage customers to take the sample into the space where the flooring will be installed.
Keeping the sample for 24 hours allows you to view how the flooring will look in both natural and artificial light. By viewing the samples in as many situations as possible, you’ll be prepared when you see the installed floor
A couple notes about samples:
- Variations between samples and installed flooring may exist. Samples are designed to represent the colour and texture of the flooring. Each piece is unique within its own dye lot and may vary slightly from the sample.
- Samples are not necessarily stain resistant. It’s tempting to throw a glass of red wine on a carpet sample to see how well it will resist the stain, but these are experiments are highly discouraged. Not all samples will have stain resistance built into them like the installed carpet will.
- Treat samples with respect. Future customers deserve to view the samples in the same pristine condition you received them in.
- Feel free to ask to keep the sample for an extended period of time. We’d rather you take the time to test it out now, then be unhappy later because your new floor doesn’t look right with your sofa.
