Home decor, an aesthetic solution!

1. Carpets and rugs

The carpet not only decorates, protects and insulates the floor, but can also absorb sound. Carpets can perform the same tasks, although they were first used for hanging on walls and covering sofas.

2. Curtains on windows and doors

A poorly insulated window or roller shutter box will give you sleepless nights. In addition to sealing their joints with silicone, you can first hang thick curtains on them. Curtains on a door also deaden noise from one room to another.

3. Furniture

Avoid echoing spaces. A massive wardrobe on the wall is useful with noisy neighbors on the doorstep. If you are short on space, you can replace furniture with paintings, mirrors, tapestries, etc.

New generation windows: forget about double glazing, the time has come triple! Well, it’s still a bit pricey… And double glazing will be enough to stop the noise from inside.
