If you still insist on carpeting, please consider not using carpet padding. Not only are you paying more for the purchase and installation of this padding, but you also are shortening the life of the carpet. So there is more material being used, more chemicals, shorter carpet life, and it is harder to clean, since the padding is like a sponge, absorbing and collecting dirt and stains and odors that are almost impossible to reach without using even harsher chemicals.
The first thing you need to do is check out your existing flooring. It may not need to be replaced at all. Hard flooring can be refinished, stained, pickled, antiqued, or painted for a new look without cutting down more trees.
Make certain that you also pick floor covering that should last the test of time, with kitchen rooms being one of the more eventful rooms in the house it is clever to get something hard wearing. With the kids and the animals it doesn't take long to erode the floor down, not to point out all the food and spills. Strength is crucial in today's kitchens for big families and simplicity of preservation could be taken into significance too.
