Have you ever been bothered by the thin walls and pen layout of your home? Looking for creative, aesthetically pleasing ways to soundproof your homes? Then you’re at the right place. Today we’ll be featuring some creative ways to can muffle all the interior and exterior noise in your homes!
1. Lots of cushioning
One of the most creative ways to soundproof your homes is by using lots of cushioning. If you choose this way, then you’ll have to come up with out-of-the-box solutions to go about it. The diwan style bed-sofa in this image is a great example of how you can use layers of cushioning and thick, sound absorbing fabric in one go while never compromising on the style at the same time.
2. Layers of curtains
Curtains are another way to lightly soundproof your homes both from the inside as well as the outside. Layered curtains are especially fashionable these days and consists of one layer of sheer fabric and another layer of thick fabric. These can help you diffuse the sounds coming from outside and muffle the sounds from the inside.
3. Extensive woodworks
Wood of any kind is a sound absorber. In fact, in large commercial projects it is used to maintain acoustics. It can also be used in homes for soundproofing purposes. For example, if you want to create a soundproof barrier between your living rooms and bedrooms, then you can opt for extensive carpentry between the two rooms to muffle the sound in stylish ways.
4. Avoiding reflective surfaces
Reflective surfaces have an ability to deflect sound and make it resonate further. These surfaces largely include mirrors. So, if you’re going for a quiet, noise-free soundproof home, it’s best that you do not use mirrors in the interior design. Instead, use absorptive surfaces like wood and fabric for the décor.
5. Plush furniture
Lastly, if your home is large and spacious enough, you can enhance the soundproofing qualities by using plush furniture. Large couches with lots of stuffing, ottomans, accent chairs and the like can be used all over the home to enhance this effect.
