Controlling the acoustics in your space

Many new layout designs in homes have an open space plan. The tendency is to use shiny, hard and reflective materials, in cabinetry and in furniture. Leather furniture and hardwood floors are also often used in homes, as well as hard surfaces on counters (like stone and quartz) and even in dining tables, glass “railings” and shutters or just blinds as a window coverings. What this all ends up meaning is that we get more noise and echoes. This can result in a cacophony of sound, which can be made even worse with an active family!

What can be done to lessen the noise while not losing your style?

we can use soft textures in textiles, drapery, area rugs, cork flooring, textured wallpaper and even acoustic panels.

There are many ways to integrate these panels (made of wool felt or other sound absorbing materials); room dividers, art etc. see some more ideas in the photos below
