When people think of “flooring”, they normally think of solid flooring. A quick search of “flooring” in any search engine will confirm this to be true. Surely, solid flooring isn’t the only kind of flooring.
Carpeting is one of the most popular types of flooring there is. However, the trend in homes is to replace carpeting with either hardwood, laminate, or another type of solid surface. When I was younger, I had carpeting in my home. The carpeting was in every room of the house, except for the kitchen. I can’t imagine what a kitchen would look like with carpeting!
Well, there’s probably a reason for that. I used searched “kitchen with carpeting” online. Yes, it looks as bad as it sounds! What happens when liquid spills on the carpet in the kitchen. If the liquid is water it will simply evaporate. However, over time, many water spills might discolor the carpeting. This would be most prevalent by the sink. Orlando Epoxy Pros put out a great article on “how to find a reputable flooring company near me.”
What happens if juice or another colored liquid spills on the carpeting? Accidents do happen! The homeowner would need to have some carpet cleaner nearby for these occurrences. Is it really worth it? The answer is probably no. And perhaps this is why most people don’t have to carpet in the kitchen. In fact, I can be safe to say this is my just about no one has carpeting in the kitchen. I don’t believe I’ve seen kitchen carpeting at any point in my life, in person, except for those pictures I just saw online.
Stick to hard flooring in the kitchen. Liquids over off faster. Foods can be picked up easier. It will just make life a little bit better to handle. The only soft flooring, perhaps, should be some type of mat at the foot of the kitchen sink. This makes it easier to stand while washing dishes.
