Media Room Curtains And Noise Proof Curtains, Which One Do You Need?

Media Room Curtains And Noise Proof Curtains, Two Types Of Sound Proofing Curtains For Home

People want soundproof curtains for two distinct reason. First, they want the sound to not leave the room. Second, they want to prevent the noise from the outside to enter the room and disturb them.

The first goal is accomplished by soundproof curtains, the second goal is accomplished by using media room curtains. Let's look at booth.

If you want to minimize the noise entering or leaving the room, you are in the right place regardless. You will find the information on how to accomplish either here.

What Type Of Media Room Curtains Are Right For You?

Want to keep the sound in, or the noise out?

Soundproofing Curtains In Home, Choosing The Noise Reducing Curtains

You may be having trouble falling asleep because of the siren noise outside. Or, at work, you have difficulties concentrating.

Before finding the solution, it helps to close your eyes and take a good listen. Where exactly are the noises coming from. Are they coming from the general direction of the windows? Doors?

Next, try to determine how the sound reaches your ears. Does it come directly from the window, or does it bounce off the walls first?

Having established the source of noise, what type of soundproofing curtains might work best for you?

You will prevent noise from traveling directly from the window by placing thick soundproof curtains across the entire window surface.

Blackout curtains might do since if they prevent all light from coming through, chances are little sound will come through also.

To prevent noise from being bounced back to window and into the room, the soundproofing curtains should be significantly bigger than the window size. Preferably wall to wall, ceiling to floor.

Thick, wide, and tall curtains will minimize any bent (diffracted) noise to enter the room.

Knowing all this, you can check out specific models and makes of soundproofing curtains here: Soundproofing Curtains.

Media Room Curtains To Stop Sounds From Leaving The Room

If you are a musician or a singer, then you know that your practicing can be disturbing to the neighbors. You do want to select the right soundproof curtains to minimize the sound escaping your practice room.

But there is an additional role of soundproof curtains. They prevent echoes of the sound from the walls, thus allowing the singer to hear themselves in an environment that is more similar to a large venue.

Media room curtains can be used to soundproof all the walls in a room, or just selectively cover the windows and the doors.

Or, for a singer, musician, or for a sound recording studio, you could just hang soundproof curtains on a frame surrounding the musician or the microphone. That way, an insulated room within a room would be created.

Preferably, media room curtains should be massive, thick, and large.
