Natural generation[edit]

White, light gray and red carpet can be found in igloos.

All carpet colors except for orange generate within woodland mansions.

The tables in village libraries each contain one brown carpet.‌[Bedrock and Legacy Console editions only]

Yellow, orange, white, red, and blue carpets generate in new villages.‌[upcoming 1.14]

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.

Carpet can be used as a fuel in furnaces, smelting 0.335 items per carpet square.‌[Java and Legacy Console editions only]

Carpets can be used to give llamas a distinct saddle pattern.

Breaking tall grass[edit]

When replacing the top half of tall grass, the grass will break and the carpet will drop as an item.‌[Java and Bedrock editions only]
