Getting away from the noise pollution of the world outside is one of the greatest parts of coming home. However, for those who have plenty of tile and hardwood floor, escaping from excessively loud noise can be more difficult. Take a look at the tips below to help eliminate or soften sources of noise in your home.
Cover Bottoms of Chair Legs
The sound of people getting in and out of their seats can result in a cacophony of squeaking and scratching noises throughout your home. If you have a lot of chairs that are positioned over tile or hardwood floors, you likely experience this sound far more often than not. Products that emulate cut up tennis balls for chairs will protect your ears from the sounds of chairs scratching over hard surfaces and while also protecting your floors from damage.
Put Hangings on Walls
In addition to providing color and intrigue to your walls, putting up wall hangings and draperies will help muffle noise from one room to another. Walls without hangings or furniture in front of them can echo noise back. By hanging up a variety of fabrics to cover some of the extra wall space you have present, you can create a more interesting space that doesn’t echo noise quite as heavily.
Add Rugs to Bare Floors
The same rule regarding wall hangings applies to rugs on floors as well. By placing rugs over hard surfaces such as wood and tile, you can help cushion the space against noise. Placing rugs under seating areas will also help prevent the sound of chairs scratching over tile or wood. In addition to doing an excellent job at protecting against unwelcome noise, rugs are a great way to bring a room’s aesthetic together.
By applying the tips above, you can help eliminate the amount of noise pollution that is present in your home.
