Your room may be well lit up and designed like a slice of heaven, however, some little disturbances can make it seem as worse as a pool of hell. This is why interior design is so broad, it covers quite much more than a client can sometimes imagine. I recently read a great piece that listed some impressive ideas for home improvement, and it inspired me to write this new post.
An avid reader of InteriorDesignsHub who wrote us a mail has been asking for some suggestions on how to design a sound-proof-bedroom.
The mail has helped me to realize how important this can be to our readers, who may not be able to enjoy their comfort of their homes due to an issue well important as the intrusion of sound.
So i decided to carry out a broad research, and also read a brilliant piece on how to soundproof an apartment, here are the best tips I have gathered from various professionals.
The first step to take if you’re hoping to design a sound-proof-bedroom is to get your door/doors replaced. Why is this important?
A door with an improper frame will definitely create a gap for noise to flow through. The best door types that will completely restrain noise from getting through are real fire doors with frame seals.
If you can, get a ceiling-to-floor book shelf and place it on the wall through which the noise travels through. After placing the book shelve, be sure to load it up with books.
Books have a way of absorbing sound due to their voluminous pages and as such, will help absorb some of the noise that permeates through the wall.
Putting up a have carpet backed up against the wall which the noise travels through can also work some wonders.
This method will probably prove to be one of the cheapest options towards attaining a sound-proof bedroom.
The rug which is placed on the wall will act as an insulation and an absorber, its job will be to dampen the noise as they pass through the wall. If you can, place the rug at the outer end of the wall as this will have much more effect, consequently catching and absorbing the noise before it spreads.
Most of the ideas I have listed so far are perfect alternatives to help you get rid of air borne noise which are mostly dampened by insulation. Structure borne sounds can be avoided mostly by isolation techniques which will involve decoupling the building’s structural elements from one to another.
