3 Ways to Reduce Noise Pollution

Let’s say that you have been living peacefully in your nice, quiet apartment, when one day the construction workers come to start building something right next door. If you’re like most people, it can be a real struggle to adjust to a noisy environment. Luckily, we have a few simple decorating tips that will not only help reduce some of that outside noise but also keep your apartment looking great!

Move Furniture Around
Sound can be absorbed in any number of ways and furniture is one of them. If you have a big, upholstered couch, consider moving it in front of the direction of the noise. A simple furniture switch will not only give a fresh new look to your apartment, but it will help cushion some of the noise.

Rugs, Rugs, Rugs
Again, look for ways to help absorb the sound. Rugs, especially shaggy ones, are great for absorbing sound. Even if you have wall-to-wall carpet, layering a variety of different textured rugs is great for adding color and cancelling unwanted noise.

Acoustic Panels
Why not have some fun while reducing the noise? Acoustic Panels are great for not only adding color and style to any room, but they are specifically designed to help reduce noise. Audimute provides a wide range of panels starting at $22.
