Flooring should be strong, durable and easy to clean. It should also be non-absorbent, resist wear, and help prevent slips. Focus on walk-ins, food prep areas, dishwashing areas, restrooms and other areas subject to moisture. Carpeting is not recommended in high- soil areas. That being said, carpeting is popular in dining rooms because it absorbs sounds. 

Coving is a curved and sealed edge placed between the floor and the wall. It is used to eliminate sharp corners. Without coving gaps and cracks between the floor and the wall make it impossible to clean.
