Case studies Get Living Office Reception
Homely, hard-wearing floor requirements for BtR developer, met by engineered vinyl
Engineered Vinyl: High impact, hard-wearing & homely
When Get Living's in-house design team had a highly specific challenge for their East Village office, one flooring answered every side of the brief.
The site needed a solution with the wow-factor to set the tone for their BTR residential developments; that would be hard-wearing against heavy foot traffic – and great value. Engineered Vinyl (LVT) flooring is a wood-effect floor that’s full of character, and for Get Living it ticks all of the boxes. It’s stunning even across a large open space, has a homely feel, and never fades or wears away.
The design triad: desirable, durable & affordable
Developers Get Living are Build-to-Rent (BTR) experts, but designing the reception area for their own office came with a different spec. It’s a flooring challenge most designers have faced: the need for a long-lasting surface that unifies a large (150sqm) area and fits an affordable budget.
Understanding the needs of the space is essential. We met the architect on-site and at our Clerkenwell showroom to explore different surface solutions. Testing wood and wood-effect sample panels side by side gave a clear outcome – for aesthetics, durability and performance, Pergo LVT Classic came out the clear winner.
The true-to-life wood-effect comes in a range of colour options, and it’s a Class 33 product with an additional TitanV™ protective layer that won’t wear away in areas of heavy use and need replacing. And the no-glue PerfectFold™ click system is quick and easy to install and doesn’t shift over time.

A stylish & authentic looking floor
The result is an impactful, natural-looking floor, working in harmony with the aesthetics of the reception. It’s expanded the space by creating a seamless flow throughout the reception, from the entrance to the meeting room. Balancing the homely feel of Get Living’s BTR developments with making a striking first impression. So much so, Get Living have specified engineered vinyl flooring in their next ‘N06 Development’, using 30,000 m2 of LVT – and have plans to use it in other upcoming developments.
