Sound often takes a back seat to visuals in home design, but the noises in our living space significantly impact our mood and comfort. By thinking consciously about sound, you can create a more harmonious home.
There are many ways to impact the acoustics of your home, either by deadening sound or by creating alternative soothing sounds. Soft fabrics, carpets, and cushions can absorb unwanted noise, and create a calm and quiet atmosphere, while features like fountains or sound systems with calming music can introduce pleasant sounds. Even the gentle hum of a fan can create a comforting white noise backdrop. Combining both of these methods can be a solution to unwanted outside noise if you cannot eliminate it where you live.
But remember, soundscaping is about more than eliminating noise; it’s about creating an aural environment that enhances your home life.
