If you choose insulating glass, the sound insulation is also good.

The more popular method now is to use hollow double-glazed windows and plastic steel flat-opening sealed windows, which can isolate 70%-80% of noise, while ordinary aluminum single-glazed windows can only isolate 30%-40% of noise.

Therefore, you can use decorative materials such as wallpapers that have better sound absorption, and can also use cultural stone and other decoration materials, reduce the noise by making the surface of the wall rougher. In addition, sound insulation materials such as mineral wool sound absorbing panels can be used for walls and ceilings.

Tests have shown that drape and tiled fabrics have the same sound absorption and effect, such as curtains, carpets, etc. The most important thing is the sound insulation of the curtains. In addition, you can laying carpet, its soft touch not only creates a comfortable and warm feeling, and can eliminate the sound of footsteps, which is conducive to people's rest. In the bedroom, to ensure a restful environment, thick curtains and fabrics should be used to control light and ambient noise.

In general, the thicker the curtain, the better the sound absorption, texture is best in cotton and linen. A good quality curtain can reduce external noise by 10%-20%. In addition, carpeting also absorbs indoor noise.

8. The ground floor uses solid wood flooring for better sound insulation. If the sound insulation of the floor is too bad, floating insulation treatment should be carried out during paving, which can greatly reduce the floor sound. Special soundproofing materials can also be used as special soundproof ceilings.

9. Soft light. Dazzling floors, ceilings, walls can interfere with the human central nervous system, making people upset, and also makes people extremely sensitive to noise. Therefore, pay special attention to the softness of light in the selection of various lamps and decorative materials for interior decoration.
