How to Soundproof a Home Office

The way to stop the common problem of a noisy home office (other than evicting all teenagers) is to block the avenues sound uses to get into the room. Sound transmission reduction is a complex subject, but keep it simple by considering this basic scenario: A massive wall, whether it’s concrete or built-up drywall, is a great sound absorber and blocker, but it becomes useless if there’s even a tiny hole in it.


Start small. First seal openings into your office, and then consider strategies for absorbing more of the sound as it passes through the wall, ceiling, floor and door materials.
