Carpet on engineered wood floor

I have engineered wood flooring down atm, but would like a change as I do not like the colour now it is down.
I would like to go for a carpet to make the room brighter & cosier. However I was wondering if there is a way to have the carpet laid without damaging the existing floor. Also, the Skirting was laid after the flooring, so there is no gap to force the carpet into
Also, its a twin room and I only want Carpet in one half. Would I maybe be better off in picking my carpet & having it made into a massive rug? I can see a potential issue with the doorway....
Room is 4m x 3m approx.

Go for the rug option.

You can't stretch fit a carpet and underlay onto an engineered floor.

If you did stretch fit, the gripper, door bars etc will need to be pinned into the floor.

You could possibly use System 10 underlay, with this you glue the carpet to the underlay and just tuck the edges, best to speak to a good fitter who can ascertain how good a job can be achieved, I'd guess the floor will be quite high for example. There are risks that the engineered floor may be damaged by the rubber nature of the underlay still.
