Methods for Soundproofing Your Bedroom

1. Soundproofing Bedroom Walls With Non-Invasive Methods

Are your walls so thin you can hear your neighbors’ every sneeze? Then consider adding mass to your surroundings to dampen noise production.

For a quicker fix, consider hanging rugs and rubber mats from your walls to alleviate the impact of unwanted sounds. They’ll assist you in abating noise.

If you have a gap at the bottom of your bedroom door, chances are good noise is seeping into — and out of — your room through this opening. Consider investing in a product that will block a draft, door sweeps or seals can be installed at the bottom of your door to seal up any openings.

3. Reducing Sound Through Floors

From thudding footsteps to squeaky shrills, floors produce their own set of annoying sounds. Whether your floor is wooden or tile-lined, you’ll want to invest in a protective sheet that provides a soundproofing barrier.

Our Impact Barrier QT Flooring Underlayment offers a solution to echoes and other noise-related issues. From tile floors to stone-laying settings, this particular underlayment is non-visible with ultimate sound quality control. You should also consider investing in thicker carpets to alleviate the impact of sounds generated from walking.

Depending on where your bedroom is located, the source of the noise can be from above. In this case, it’s helpful to cut down on impact noise, such as the pitter patter of little feet, or airborne noise, like the sound of a TV playing.
