Soundproofing with Blinds and Drapes

Tuesday, December 28th, 2010

Before we proceed, we’d like to be very clear on one point. While soundproof blinds and drapes may help you to reduce the levels of noise in a room, neither is a suitable replacement for true soundproofing technique.

That said, there are some times when soundproof blinds and drapes can proof helpful. Let’s say you’re renting a house or apartment and can’t get permission to do any formal soundproofing, like you might do with Green Glue damping compound? Perhaps you’ve purchased a vintage or historic home and are having trouble getting permission to make any major renovations? In these instances, blinds and drapes may be just what you need to take the edge off of unwanted noise.

Don’t waste your money on accessories if you don’t have to. Simple changes to your window panes or acoustical seals may be all you need. If not, finding aesthetically pleasing drapes may be the right solution for you. Good luck!
