Tips for Loud & Echoey Spaces

From layered rugs to wall hangings, we’re breaking down our favorite loud room solutions for your home.

Start by rolling out your rugs

The fastest way to reduce sound in your space is by adding an area rug or a carpet. From heavy-steppers to the occasional crash in the other room, rugs absorb sound on the floor, reducing the amount of sound that would otherwise bounce off hard surfaces in the area. Layered rugs actually increase this effect by adding more sound reduction, while also looking pretty great. This goes for hallways, entryways, and any other ways you can think of to use layered rugs.

Explore your softer side with textiles

If layered rugs reduce sound on the floor, cozy layers can stop sound waves traveling across echoey spaces. Yes, we are recommending that you stock up on cozy throws, blankets, and quilts as loud room solutions. The good news is they’re fully capable of reducing sound while you’re bundled up under them, so feel free to take a hands-on approach to noise reduction in your house.

Finish up with a few wall hangings

We believe the best art fills a purpose in your space. Wall hangings can often be made from similar materials as your favorite rugs, making them a great way to mask noise traveling through the walls. Available in a range of sizes, colors, and fabrics, they’re easy to install and perfect for any aesthetic. Plus, getting rid of any echoey spaces in your house means you’ll have plenty of chances to appreciate your wall art in silence.
