    I’m looking to get a blacklight rug for my game room about 8x12 feet big. So far I’ve found the best luck with Joy Carpets on wayfair.ca. These are my 3 favorites but I’m open to other options. I’ve seen nicer patterns, but nothing that easily ships to Canada. Let me know about these three, unless you know of somewhere else that I should look before I commit to a choice

    Green and purple, #2.

    #3 is close too. Looks like space.

    #1 pattern too semetrical IMO.

    #3 9 months ago

    How about searching around a bit more, and posting pics of a few more choices.

    #4 9 months ago

    There was someone towards the end of vids Stratocaster thread with some bitching black light carpet

    #5 9 months ago

    Offering up a different idea for consideration (not necessarily those particular teams).

    Out of your choices it would green and purple for me.
    The other two patterns are too obvious for me. I like the more random look of the green and purple one.

    #7 9 months ago

    These are what I have

    6D7B2AF5-F775-4736-AA0D-119633617F68 (resized).jpeg. This has both in the shot. I like the inferno but the splat just pops!

    I like the rugs better than just replacing all the carpet because when I move I can take em w/me. Also carpet like this could hurt resale a touch.

    #9 9 months ago

    That splat pattern does look like it really pops.

    #10 9 months ago

    I ordered the "Space Voyage" from these guys. It looked pretty good.

    #11 9 months ago

    I nice hefty Berber would be great

    #12 9 months ago

    Not sure how black light compatible it would be. . . but a nice thick shag would feel good on bare feet.

    pasted_image (resized).png

    Oh wait, you said game room! Doubt you'd want a black light in the bathroom anyway.

    #13 9 months ago

    I went with Starz. Looks great in person.

    They have some pretty wild patterns.

    I like the look of the stars too, do you have a link to order?

    They were decent to work with. They forgot to cut my carpet to the size I ordered, so they gave me a large discount.

    #16 9 months ago

    Carpet is so 70’s....maybe a strip down the middle but otherwise has to be bare

    #17 8 months ago

    I’m not ready to pull the trigger yet, but I’m definitely going to get a quote on that starz pattern.

    Why the hell would anyone want that in their bathroom?!

    What and how many black lights did you use to get such a great looking effect?
    Do you have a link to what you bought?

    Here's a slightly better shot of mine. Can't get the camera to capture it well...

    The room is a mess because I haven’t fully unpacked since the move. But this is looking good 192CF428-2CB5-49C0-B381-9B2825CDB4CC (resized).jpeg

    Yet still it looks awesome!
    Nice choice.

    #24 5 months ago

    Who did you end up ordering from? Assume it shipped from the States? Looks like 3 or 4 square yards?

    #25 5 months ago

    I'd be curious about this, as well. Was interested in ordering for a 10 x 13 room, and after looking into most of the usual suspects that come up in these threads came to the conclusion that most sellers required you to order 3 times as much unless you went with one or two specific patterns.

    http://www.astrocarpetmills.com

    Here’s a link to the manufacturer.

    The rug is 10’x12’ and has an edge band sewn on. With shipping, customs, and dollar exchange it worked out to about $6.35 a square foot. In total this rug was just under $760. If you need to have it delivered to a residential address, shipping will be $100usd more.

    Lowe’s has a variety of glow in the dark carpets. I’m about to buy this one:

    https://m.lowes.com/pd/Joy-Carpets-Neon-Lights-12-ft-W-x-Cut-to-Length-Fluorescent-Textured-Interior-Carpet/1000373005

    Only $3.27sf and no shipping if you pick it up from a Lowe’s store.

    #28 5 months ago

    I'm another (2-time) happy customer of the Starz carpet by Astrocarpetmills. I had them deliver it to my carpet-guy's loading dock and saved the home delivery.

    That’s a cool looking black light carpet. I didn’t find anything that sweet on their Canadian website

    I gotta ask if you remember where you got the chairs and table? I know you mentioned it before (like years ago) but can’t remember. I had another guy ask on pinball revolution.
