When I first moved into my new home I had everything planned out except for one thing. I wasn’t sure if I wanted a carpet in the kitchen or not. As a kid, I enjoyed playing on the kitchen floor at my mother’s house and the carpet made it so cozy and nice. But here, I thought I’s try a cleaner approach. After doing some research, I decided to share the pros and cons.
A carpet is soft and offers protection, whether it’s against low temperatures or accidents. If you drop a glass on a tiled floor, it will most likely break. The carpet saves you the trouble of replacing it.
Also, having a carpet in the kitchen is something to consider if you’re having back problems. If you don’t want to cover the entire kitchen floor, get a small carpet or rug and place it in front of the sink or counter, where you spend most of your time standing.
A carpet on the kitchen floor will also make the room feel more inviting and warm. And since the kitchen is a social space nowadays, that’s a welcomed plus.
Carpets are much more difficult to clean than tiles or concrete and they get greasy, worn and torn because of the heavy traffic. This can give your kitchen a less clean and fresh look.
So, in conclusion, I feel compelled to tell you I reached a compromise and purchased a small rug for the area near the kitchen table, but I really want to see your opinion on this topic.
