Is there a concrete flexible enough for a thin layer of kitchen carper underlayment?

Hello Klockie,


Thanks for your question and welcome to the community.


A kitchen (or any floor in a room that will has constant contact with wet/damp foot traffic) is almost always a very poor choice for placing carpet in it.


The carpet, as well as the padding (underlayment) can and will cause mold-mildew problems from moisture being trapped into over time from the wear and tear of everyday feet and paws and even just spills from water and food.


Unless this is in an area that is far away from the high traffic and sink/refrigerator areas, I would strongly advise to never place carpet down in that area.


If you do decide though, make sure the padding you use has moisture barrier on it.
