A peaceful and quiet house is what we all try hard to get?
A car honking, the stretching sound of tires or somewhere music is playing. Amidst of all these sounds we got stuck in crazy noises.
Several methods are out there to make the house soundproof but it doesn’t feel better to spend a lot on soundproofing equipment. There are many simple choices that really work in minimizing the noise and help you get a peaceful house!
Are you an avid reader? If yes then good news for you!
Bookshelves can reduce the noise of the room as they create a barrier for the noise to enter. While making a book shelve, do not leave many empty spaces and gaps. The sound makes its way through small holes and filling these spaces works wonderfully in creating a beautiful and calm environment.
So enjoy reading books in quiet place.
Fill the cracks and gaps:
Cracks, gaps, openings and holes are the hidden source of the noise.
Taking other measures to soundproof the house but leaving gaps? This will hinder in blocking the outside sound completely.
Fill the gap with the acoustical caulk sealant which mitigates the noise to a great extent. Use this sealant around the ceiling, windows, door casing, switch box or any other electrical board.
Modish styled rugs and carpets add the admirable and aesthetic look to the house as well as reduce the noise of footsteps echo. If you are not in the favour of full carpeting then try using rugs, these will also do a great job.
Keep in mind that the thicker the rug, the quieter your room. The woven fibres act as the soundproofing element to control loud noises.
Consider placing the rugs in the living room or lounge and carpet the staircase. These areas have the most traffic compared to other areas of the house, therefore cover the floors of these areas with thick rugs and carpets.
Solid core doors:
Can you hear the outside sound easily even with the door closed?
If yes, then one of the culprits is probably your door!
Mostly lightweight and hollow doors are used for the interior which does not block the outside sound. Switch your hollow doors with solid core door which reduces the sound due to its sound-absorbing nature.
Curtains and drapes:
The problem of noises really gets annoying at night. The noise of traffic or passersby is never ending but thick curtains can give you a better solution. Heavy lined drapes or curtains will not only add elegant look but also cut the outside noises. Curtains with thick embroidery or lined with a poly fibre batting could help you.
These tips will cut the noise greatly and help you achieve what you want at low cost!
