In this part of the world (New Zealand) , carpet usually refers to a wall to wall floor covering while the words rug and mat are used interchangeably for a smaller floor covering- mat being more widely used in my experience. I wrote mat, as I never say rug but it was marked wrong. I'm reporting but have little hope the moderators will take any notice. Non English speakers, if you ask for a rug in NZ, unless you specify a floor rug, you are more likely to be given a 'coperta'- travel or mohair style rug, or even a blanket.
