Difference between woodworm and carpet beetles

We moved into a new barn conversion with new carpets a month ago and have an infestation of small beetle type bugs. They seem to be coming up from the skirting board and there a lot on the window sills each morning but to me they look more like woodworm than carpet beetles. Husband thinks they are carpet beetles. They are about 3-5 mm and brown so not varied carpet beetle. Any advice on telling the difference as I am terrified they are woodworm. I am unable to take a close up photo unfortunately.
