Vinyl is another great idea. Don't confuse vinyl with linoleum like many people do. Compared with other flooring, vinyl is the easiest sheet material to install. Kitchens and bathrooms are the most popular areas for vinyl flooring. Many people choose vinyl in these areas because it's easy to clean. You can find vinyl in prints that look like other floor coverings. It is possible to get vinyl that is printed to look like hardwood floors if you like.
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.
Choosing a rug takes a lot of thought mainly because you need to get the color scheme right so that it fits in with the rest of the room. You need to think about the color of the walls, the color of the flooring and the color of your furniture. If you choose the wrong rug it could clash and the whole room would look off balance. So, think about the color scheme before you purchase anything!
