'Matte' is a mat, while 'teppe' is a rug/carpet, just go to ikea.no & you'll see which is most commonly used (teppe is). Specifically it will say 'tepper' for rugs.

What's the difference?

In English? A carpet covers most, or all, of the floor (if it is 'fitted' it covers the whole floor and is fixed to it). A rug is smaller and covers just a part of the floor. It can normally be moved easily.

"å provosere (frem)", though it's used less frequently than the English equivalent.

"Gulvet" just sounds like gullet to me.

Any way the wind blows...

It says "math" when I hover over "matte" but it doesn't accept it for obvious reasons.
