Nursery Room Soundproofing: Because Babies Need Quiet, Too
Bringing a new baby into your home is a monumental occasion. You spend months planning every detail of your nursery. What you may have over looked is how noisy the baby’s room will be. If you live in a noisy neighborhood or share walls with other tenants, your baby’s napping and sleeping time may be constantly disrupted. In these cases, it is a good idea to soundproof your nursery room, for your peace of mind, and your baby’s.
The good news? Supress Products’ soundproofing materials can be used during or after construction. So whether you are planning to build your baby’s nursery room, or using an existing room in your home, creating a peaceful sanctuary for baby can be achieved.
Surveying the Room
Once you have decided to soundproof your nursery room, you should look at all the structural aspects of the room, including walls, windows, ceilings, floors, and doors. Surveying your baby’s nursery before you begin your soundproofing project helps ensure you do a good job and buy everything you need to soundproof the first time out.
Choosing the Right Soundproofing Materials
Once you have surveyed the nursery to figure out what needs soundproofing, the next step is choosing the right soundproofing materials. Luckily, Supress Products carries the three main materials you will use when soundproofing.
Sound-engineered drywall comes is a variety of widths, and is made of layers of soundproofing material that absorb vibrations, preventing sound from traveling into your baby’s room from various other rooms in the house. This is very important when your baby’s ears are at stake! If the bathroom or kitchen is on the other side of your nursery, you can also line the backs of drawers and cabinets with sticky foam to make sure your baby is disrupted every time someone needs a glass.
If you need to use plywood, we also carry sound-engineered plywood, which works similarly to our sound-engineered drywall. Using both should give you some flexibility.
Finally, you should also get enough adhesive sealant to install the sound-engineered drywall and plywood. The adhesive sealant also acts as an additional layer for extra soundproofing control.
The products noted above should take care of soundproofing your walls, ceilings, and floors in your nursery. However, you should also try to install soundproof windows and doors to safeguard your baby’s comfort. If you are unsure of what you need, or how to make it work, give us a call! We are happy to help.
