When you heard that you had to stay home in isolation, I bet you never thought how noisy isolation would be. Everyone has noisy neighbours. With everyone home all at the same time, it’s amazing just how much more noisy life is. If it’s not the next-door neighbor’s kids, maybe it’s your own. Maybe it’s all the renovations now taking place. Either way, here are some ideas to help block the sounds from next door and get some peace again.

 

  • Soundproof the Walls.

The easiest way to do this is by hanging art; it will help absorb noise and annoying sounds. If you hang a canvas, you could consider putting foam on the underside for extra absorption. You can buy sound-absorbing felt panels or make your own & turn it into a vision board or “where I’ve traveled in the world.”

  • Soundproof the Door.

Check that you have good quality weather stripping between your door and the frames; also, make sure you have a high-quality draft blocker on the bottom of your door; both will help create a seal when the door is closed.

  • Soundproof the Windows

Sometimes closing all your windows still isn’t enough to block noise.  You can always check (or get a handyman to do so) to make sure that the windows and frames are properly sealed, or you can use a window insert to create more of a noise buffer. But, even easier… Hang some heavy curtains on your windows to help muffle outside noise from disturbing you.

  • Soundproof the Floor/Ceiling

If you have a two-story home or live in an apartment block, the sounds from above can drive you crazy, especially if they are wooden or tiled floors. The best soundproof measure is to lay carpet and or rugs to help deaden sound.
