How To Make Your Room Soundproof

Windows are your best place to start when taking steps to soundproof your space. Soundproofing your home has two components:

Sound Reduction—stops noise from entering your home in the first place (through the windows)

Sound Absorption—stops the noise that does get in from  reverberating around the room.

Window Inserts: Installing window inserts is one of the most effective ways to soundproof your windows. Indow Acoustic Grade window inserts reduce up to 70% of outside noise (depending on the type of window). The easy to install inserts press into the interior of window frames whether it’s to soundproof an office or home. Not only do they block noise, they create a more comfortable and energy efficient space.

Window Treatments: Sound damping curtains or heavy drapes can also help block outside noise from penetrating. They may shut out your view, but hey, at night that doesn’t matter and your room will be cozier.

STC (Sound Transmission Class) ratings are simple; the higher the rating, the less noise penetration. A single-pane window yields an STC rating of 26-28, meaning normal speech can be heard clearly and understood. At 42-45, loud speech can be heard as a murmur – or not at all.

*Note, overall noise reduction performance depends on how much noise is coming through walls, ceilings, floor, and doors. The window noise reduction will be less when Indow inserts are placed over double-pane windows. We do not recommend Indow inserts for reducing noise coming through laminated glass windows, triple pane windows, or hurricane windows.
