If you’re a mother with a busy family, you might be forgiven for thinking there is no way you can get any peace and quiet in your home, but you’d be wrong – there are so many things you can do to reduce noise in any given room of your home, and although it won’t stop your kids from being the noisy little monsters they are, it will help you find some peace from them, and the outside world, now and again.

Okay, so how exactly can you reduce noise in your home?

Insulate

Insulating your home is a great way to save money on your utility bills and keep you warm. But did you know that a Blown In Fiberglass Insulation can also help to muffle sounds? It stands to reason that when your walls are filled with insulation, they are thicker, and therefore, sounds can not travel as easily between rooms which is why, if you don’t already have it, you should probably consider insulation for your property.

Noise-reducing drywall

Yes, noise-reducing drywall is a thing, and it is actually possible to add it to just a single room if, for example, you just want to make your bedroom a bit quieter. It works by attaching a thin metal channel to the wall’s framework, which helps to weaken any soundwaves heading towards the room. If you want to block noise, it is a great solution that is easy to install and less expensive than you might think.

Carpets

Hardwood, tile, and laminate floors may be really popular right now, but there is no denying that you can hear every footstep on them, which is why, if you’re serious about reducing the noise in your home, you might want to think about replacing hard floors with soft, sound-muffling carpets. If you don’t want to do that, placing a few thick rugs in high traffic areas or upstairs rooms, where the sounds is more likely to be heard below, is a pretty sensible solution.

Floating floors

Another solution to noisy floors is to float them. Floating floors are floors that have not been nailed into the subfloor. Instead, they are attached with an adhesive that can stop them from creaking and reduce the amount of sound that is able to travel throughout the property. Most of these floating floors will also contain a vibration-absorbing material of some sort, so they can be really very effective.

Soft accessories

A really simple trick to reduce noise in your home is to soften everything up. Add rugs to the floors, Hang, soft, thick, and luxurious drapes, replace glass decorations with soft plants, throw cushions around the place, and the softness will muffle the sounds whereas hard accessories will allow it to travel. A benefit of this idea is that it makes your home so much cozier than it would otherwise be, which is never a bad thing.

If you’re tired of being interrupted by all manner of family and neighbor noise, these tips will help you to take back control and get some peace and quiet in your life.
