I approve of everything except the rug in the kitchen. Hate rugs in the bathroom and kitchen in the Indian context. With household help and cooks, this is a recipe for disaster. We do not have to mimic the West in everything, just pick what is suitable.

Rugs do get extremely dirty but in my home, they are useful because the kitchen floor gets very wet. The (heavy-duty) cooking and washing happen in the same tiny area.
