Carpeted Floors for Your New Home and the Luxury Vinyl Plank Alternative
Carpeting and luxury vinyl plank are two popular options for new homes.

New construction homes offer customization options that can suit your needs, and Ameri-Star Homes is committed to helping you customize your home design to your satisfaction. We can help you make fundamental and detailed decisions about your new home build at our Design Center, including the all-important flooring material. Below are the advantages you can get when you choose carpeted floors. You can also find the benefits of hardwood floors here.

Benefits of Carpeted Floors


Carpeted floors are arguably more affordable than other flooring materials such as hardwood, laminate, tile, and luxury vinyl plank. Their affordability and quality make carpets an appealing choice for those looking to save money while gaining the other benefits that carpeting offers.

Easy to Install

Carpets are also easy to install and uninstall, which helps cut down the costs also. Carpets do need replacing more often than hard flooring materials, so this ease of installation is convenient for whenever that time comes. Some recommend replacing the carpet about every ten years.


Carpets have qualities that hard flooring materials do not, and those are comfort and softness. Plush carpet underfoot can change your experience entirely, and durable, woven carpet can soften your rooms. For families, it can be ideal for those with young children.


Carpets also come in countless colors, patterns, and textures. You can find anything from a neutral tone to a statement piece. Carpeted floors have by no means gone out of style and are just as appealing as they were decades ago.


If you change your carpeted floors to hardwood or vice versa, you will be able to hear a difference. Hardwood floors can amplify sounds, but carpeted floors will dampen them. Voices and objects falling on the floor are not as loud.

Easy to Maintain

Carpeted floors can suffer from stains, wear, and tear over time, but maintenance is minimal overall. For deeper cleaning, one can always call a carpet cleaner. Of course, carpeting hides dirt and dust better than hard flooring, so your cleaning needs do not have to be as rigorous.

Luxury Vinyl Plank Flooring as an Alternative

Luxury vinyl plank flooring (LVP) is vinyl flooring in the form of long planks rather than tiles. They have a thin top layer that protects against scratches and UV light, plus another layer beneath for extra durability. LVP in most cases is water resistant and can take on many photo-realistic looks, including hardwood and stone. Carpet is a winsome option, but luxury vinyl plank is a popular alternative should you prefer it. Visit the Ameri-Star Homes Design Center for an array of LPV selections.
