It is always important to make sure that you are not disturbed by noise in your room. All rooms in your house should be proof of noise that can cause a lot of inconvenience. Soundproofing your room (HowToSoundProof.org) is the best option to stop sound transmission by use of a separating structure from a sound source into another room to make sure it is not heard by the receiver. To help you in the process of soundproofing your room, here are some of the tips to follow.
Block the sound waves
Sound usually travels in waves through the air and transmit through solid surfaces by vibration. When sound hits your wall some of the energy usually bounces back into your room and some will be transferred through the wall. By blocking the sound as it hits the wall can minimise the transfer of sound from one side of your wall to the other. This goes a long way in enhancing the soundproofing of your room.
Add mass to your wall
The simplest way to soundproof your room is to make use of soundproofing panels that are usually fixed onto the wall surface directly. The panels have high density materials that are combined with anti vibrating matting. A combination of plasterboard with high density will help in blocking the sound and minimise vibrating through the plasterboard panels. This will in the long end block the sound that passes through all your walls, thus ensuring that your room is sound proof.
Isolate all the solid surfaces
Another way you can soundproof your room is by isolation of all the solid structures from one another. This helps minimise sound transmission through the solid structures. When you install a new wall, it is advisable to have an independent structure that is isolated from the already existing surface. This will help stop more sound compared to a new structure that is connected to the original structure. When you construct a new wall over an existing one you should not fasten into the existing wall because this will act as another sound transmission path. You can also soundproof your room if you can leave a gap between surfaces. Despite that you will end up losing some space in the process, it is worth doing so, because you will never be disturbed by noise.
Develop isolation by use of acoustic hangers
It is also possible to recreate isolation and separation in ceiling and wall without losing any space. Acoustic hangers have become vey popular in the development of ceilings and walls that are created to reduce sound transfer. There are also sound breakers that are specifically designed to work in two ways, absorb vibration and minimise surface contact between two surfaces. Use of acoustic hangers mean that you are integrating an element of separation with the wall structure or ceiling with just a little space lost in the process.
When looking for the best way to soundproof your room it is important to seek professional advice to ensure that you use the most effective way depending on the characteristics of your home.
