Carpet flooring in the kitchen can work well in areas of the country with little humidity.

If you'd like to place carpeting in your kitchen work area, choose something durable, such as a tight berber made out of a stain-resistant material like olefin.


Recommended flooring support

Plywood or concrete.

Pros

  • Quiet and comfortable


Cons

  • Doesn't provide the durability and stain-resistance you expect from a kitchen floor

  • Will be a chore to clean up everyday spills, much less major accidents.

  • Can mildew easily, especially in areas of the country with humid climates

 

Price
About $3-$9 per square foot for berber.
