If you’re a musician, you know how important it is to have a place where you can practice without disturbing your roommates or neighbors. But finding a soundproofed space can be difficult, especially if you’re living in an apartment. Luckily, there are some things you can do to soundproof your bedroom and make it more conducive to practicing your craft.

  • Purchase some panels or acoustic tiles to hang on the walls
  • You can find these at most home improvement stores
  • Hang the panels or tiles on the wall, starting with the wall that faces the street or another loud noise source
  • Overlap the edges of each panel so that they fit snugly against each other
  • Apply weatherstripping around all doorways and windows in the room
  • This will help to seal off any gaps where sound can escape
  • Place a rug on the floor, preferably one that is thick and plush
  • This will help to absorb any sound that bounces off the floor
