Artistic Soundproofing

Thursday, November 19th, 2009

Looking to make some soundproofing modifications to your room while maintaining your low or nonexistent budget?

Try making the most of your favorite posters and paintings while turning them into sound absorbing panels. All you have to do is place some soundproof materials inside the back of the frame and you don’t have to spend a lot on expensive soundproofing materials, either. Try the following:

  • Apply a layer of Green Glue to the cardboard at the back of your painting or poster and then put another layer of cardboard over top, creating a sound absorbing barrier.
  • Place a layer of felt in between the poster and the cardboard backing.
  • Glue a layer of mass loaded vinyl to the back of the poster or painting.

Before you know it you’ll have some beautiful sound panels, all relatively inexpensive to create, and your visitors will never know the difference!
