Soundproofing your children’s bedroom is not only an effective way to keep the neighbourhood commotion out, but it can also help you contain the noise your children make. Kids in their growing years can be quite loud, especially when they own cacophonous or noisy toys. Having a soundproofing layer between their rooms and the world outside can benefit everyone.
Here are some helpful tips to soundproof your kid’s bedroom thoroughly:
Start with the windows
Major openings like windows and doors allow a significant amount of noise to enter in and out of your kid’s bedroom. Double window glazing is a cost-effective way to create optimal noise reduction and keep indoors warm and comfortable. If you want to reduce noise pollution and keep your home energy-efficient, don’t skip window soundproofing installation and start by investing in this two-way thermal and sound insulation.
Retrofit the doors
You may be tempted to skip the door soundproofing installation to save a few bucks. However, this may turn out to be the most expensive mistake you’ll make while soundproofing your child’s bedroom. Sound can travel through the small opening under and above the doors and release up to 60% of sound in or out of the room. The quality of your door material also impacts sound reduction.
Invest in a sound-isolated door or at least a solid core door with a automatic drop down door bottom and door seal attached to stop the noise from travelling indoors. Contact us for additional ideas to help reduce sound through your doors.
Move to the walls
A great deal of noise travels through walls. And if your kid’s bedroom walls are hollow, you can hear noise clearly at all times. Protect the bedroom, or the areas of the house affected by the bedroom by investing in a wall assembly designed to reduce or practically eliminate sound transfer through the wall. There are variations that work for every budget and requirement. Browse through our soundproofing products collection to find the most suitable one.
Finish with the flooring
If you live in an apartment, you may already know that noise can travel through the floor and enter your living space. Consider buying the highest-grade soundproofing equipment for floors and ceilings from our online shop if you don’t want to invest in allergen-laden fluffy carpets.

Tenants stay longer in apartments in which they are happy. As more and more people find themselves living in multi-family dwellings, a peaceful and quiet environment goes a long way towards making these tenants happy. Having happy tenants is just one reason to learn how to soundproof an apartment if you’re a building owner or landlord, and for apartment renters and owners themselves, less noise generally means a higher quality of life…
