How to Soundproof a Living Room Wall
This guide will explain how to soundproof a living room wall against noisy neighbours and increase sound insulation in your own home. Whether trying to soundproof the party wall with a neighbouring property or a stud wall, these solutions will effectively block sounds from transferring through living walls.
Soundproofing Living Room Walls From Noisy Neighbours
Soundproofing the wall between neighbouring properties is one of the most common enquiries we receive. Because living rooms are where people tend to watch TV or listen to music, they are often the rooms that people want soundproofing. Use one of the following solutions to block sounds through the party wall transferring into your living room. For the highest level of noise reduction, soundproof your living room walls using a false wall solution. This type of soundproofing comprises acoustic insulation, soundbreaker bars and soundproof panels. Combing these materials is the best method for increasing the sound insulation of your living wall. If your living room is tight on space and you can not lose the living space that a false wall requires, consider using the slimmer soundproofing option of panels installed directly onto the party wall.
