The Shining Movie Carpet for Your Own Home.
Interior designer, David Hicks created the iconic carpet pattern that became world famous in the popular movie, The Shining.
The carpet was seen in the Overlook Hotel and soon made headlines as a must-have item for every home.
Since then, fans have desperately tried to emulate this design and get their hands on their own carpet with a similar pattern.
It featured hexagonal shapes in a range of sizes and colors, making it contemporary and perfect for main living areas.
The main colors in this carpet are brown, orange and red. However, other color combinations are available and you should check with Direct Carpet for availability.

What size “The Shining” carpet should I buy?
The size of the carpet you buy will depend on your home’s needs.
If you are looking for an area rug purely for decorative purposes, then a small area rug may be a good option.
Home owners that wish to cover up stains and general wear and tear on their current fitted carpet would do well to purchase a larger size area rug this can cover a multitude of sins and bring new life to old and uninspiring fitted carpet.
If you are looking to liven up your staircase, hallway or passage area, then a carpet runner in this design will look great. This style is bright, cheerful and energizing and it is very effective at creating excitement in a dull and boring space.
Will The Shining carpet match my current decor?
It all depends. If your home’s interior design style consists of colors that will clash with this carpet’s design, then we do not recommend it as the first choice.
When it comes to choosing carpet for your home, it is important to think about how well it will blend in with the current furniture and paint colors in your home.
