Making Your Home Noise-Free With Carpets
If you have multiple flooring types within your home, you may notice a difference in the sound travelling as you walk through the house. No matter the story level of your house, it can get frustrating hearing people’s footsteps everywhere they go. That’s why here at Tile Wizards, we recommend choosing carpet flooring to sound proof rooms.
Why Carpet Flooring?
Carpet is great for noise insulation; it helps to trap noise in each room as well as reducing the echo. Carpet also reduces noise from neighbours, making it a great option for apartments and attached or semi-detached townhouses.
The reverberation time in a carpeted room is halved compared to a space with hard flooring. So, when the kids are upstairs playing and you’re downstairs watching a movie in the media room, the carpet will keep their noise upstairs and your noise downstairs.
In addition, carpet also substantially reduces noise nuisance from road traffic and construction work. Carpet is also one of the cheapest flooring options for any house all while being quite durable.
With any carpet installation it’s important to use underlay so there is a stronger base for the carpet to be attached to. If you’re DIY-ing, then make sure that you talk to an expert beforehand to get the necessary tools. We recommend only considering DIY-ing if you have some experience, and if the rooms are straightforward to do – square and rectangular shaped room are easy enough to carpet yourself. But if you are looking at odd angles and stairs, our suggestion is to hire professionals.
Whether you are DIY-ing or hiring a professional, Tile Wizards can help. And if you haven’t made a decision yet, read our full list of pros and cons of DIY and professional carpet installation here.
