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.
Quiet and comfortable
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.

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