Carpets are thin blocks which are mainly used for decoration.
Obtaining[edit | edit source]
Carpets can be mined using any tool, or without a tool. Unlike wool, carpets are not destroyed quicker when using shears.

Usage[edit | edit source]
Carpet has the same thickness as a pressure plate. It has a hitbox of 1⁄16 of a block and covers the entire surface of the block it is placed on, unlike pressure plates.
Carpet can be placed on any block, including non-solid blocks.
Carpet can be pushed and pulled by pistons but will pop off if pushed onto a hole or pulled downwards. It can also break falling sand and gravel.
Carpet is an opaque block but does not decrease light going through it. Because of this and the fact that it can be placed on any block, a common decorative strategy is to place carpet on glowstone, illuminating a room and hiding the light source at the same time.
Carpet can be placed over water blocks, but to do so you must target an adjacent block with a visible hitbox.
The ability for mobs to spawn on carpet is directly inherited from the block below it. Thus you can carpet and mob-proof a house by placing the carpet on a non-spawnable block such as slabs.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

- Carpet will not prevent the formation of ice.
- Carpet can safely be placed on top of farmland, although it will not protect the farmland from jumping entities.
Gallery[edit | edit source]
Carpeted floor. There are some jack o'lanterns below them, so this area is well lit without torches.
