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.
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.
If for example the walls are a pale color, you may find that a natural colored rug fits better in with the room than a purple one would. If the walls are more of a copper color then you would be better off choosing a red colored rug. You have to know which colors go better together and whilst you do not have to go for the same sort of color as the walls, you do have to go for one which compliments it. So you can choose either a neutral color or a color which adds a little subtle touch or a vibrant contrasting color which brings the focus to the rug but which does not clash with the color of the walls.
