Carpeted Kitchens?

I have never seen a carpeted kitchen. I have heard of such things; people tell tales about soft floored kitchens around the world, places where people can walk around bare foot, or go for a midnight snack, without fear of having the freezing grasp of the tiled floor waking them from their late night slumber walk. There are, of course, plenty of practical reasons why a carpeted kitchen might be ridiculous. You can get stains on the floor which are crazy difficult to remove from carpet, especially compared to tiled kitchen floors. But people out there choose not to tile them; so what are the other options?

One of the most popular alternatives to tiling is hard wood flooring. There isn’t any specific reason to opt for this, both are relatively easy to clean but the hard wood floor is often elected because of its aesthetic value, rather than the boring, traditional tiling.
