Every room has an entryway, but not every room has a door. If your home is under construction or you have an unimpeded opening between rooms, you may forgo the door temporarily or permanently. An open doorway can allow sound to travel out of the room, but there are ways to soundproof a room with no door.
You can soundproof an empty doorway with materials you have at home or you can purchase professional soundproofing materials from Soundproof Cow.
How to Soundproof a Room With No Door or an Open Doorway
These three solutions can effectively block sound in your doorless room.
1. Use Acoustic Room Dividers
Acoustic room dividers provide the most effective sound-blocking solution. These differ from room dividers that simply break up the flow of the room. They dampen sound, and you can put one in the door frame to cover as much room as possible. Fill in any gaps between the divider and the doorway with soft material, such as:
- Pillows or tightly rolled pillowcases.
- Rugs or heavy curtains.
Acoustic room dividers reduce echoing in the room and muffle, though they do not not block, noise from outside the room.
2. Hang Sound-Blocking Curtains
Sound-blocking curtains fit into any budget, and they muffle the sound, so you get peace in your room. You can hang the curtains in the door frame. Get something long enough to touch the floor, and use at least two layers of curtains for the best sound absorbtion. Curtains are also easy to push aside when you leave the room, and you can pull them shut when you reenter.
3. Push Furniture in Front of the Door
Putting a physical barrier between your room and the rest of the house can also soundproof a room, though it can impede your access to the room and your decorating options. You can use this temporarily until you find a more permanent solution.
The more you put in front of the doorway, the better the soundproofing will turn out. Fill in the rest of the area with cushions and other things that absorb sound.
