Drapes are the best when it comes to reducing incoming noise, but they can also act as sound absorbant material for the walls. Specially designed sound curtains can replace wall panels if you don’t mind the cinema kind of look they give the interior. Though the regular curtains won’t do much to soundproof your home.




Drywall is a decorative interior element that can double as a soundproofing material. Since drywall is installed over the regular walls it creates a sound absorbing effect. It can also be filled in with some soundproffing material if you need better insulation.

Other insulation tricks that don’t require professional help include elevating sound sources above the floor, carpeting, and rubber mats for reducing noise from appliances.
