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.

Pocket Edition[edit | edit source]

In Pocket Edition, carpets replace the pressure plates of the tables in villages.

Usage[edit | edit source]

Carpet has the same thickness as a pressure plate. It has a hitbox of 116 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.

In 1.11[upcoming], carpet can be used as a fuel in furnaces, smelting 0.335 items per carpet square.[Computer edition only]

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.
