One of the best things about buying luxury real estate is the versatility that the property typically offers. With more space, extra rooms, and a lot more options for spreading out and embracing your passions, you're sure to be able to make it a productive home. Whether you're looking for a home theater space or an in-home amateur recording studio, you may want to find a home with a soundproofed room. Even if the luxury home you've chosen doesn't have soundproofing anywhere in the house, you can do it on your own. Here's a look at how easy it is to create your own exclusive space in your new home.
Choose The Right Room
Most luxury homes offer lots of space and several floors for you to choose from for your audio escape. Before you randomly choose a room, take a few minutes to consider the home's construction and the location in the house. It's often best to select a room on the lowest level because of the weight that can be added from some soundproofing methods. If you have to use a room on an upper floor, you may need to limit the options for your soundproofing installation.
Decide On Your Soundproofing Approach
If you choose a first-floor room, one of the best things you can do is work with a luxury home renovation contractor who understands how to do concrete soundproofing filler without disrupting the rest of the home's construction. This concrete filler is pumped into the opening of the walls, filling that space around the studs and between the adjacent walls. When done on all sides of the room, it helps to deaden sound travel.
Another option is foam soundproofing panels. If you're soundproofing an upper-story room, this is the best option because the foam panels are lightweight, easy to install, and require minimal disruption.
You may even find that your contractor recommends a lower-level room in your home that's renovated with a combination of both the concrete filler and the foam panels. That way, you can put them on all of the interior walls and the ceiling to stop any noise from carrying. Most luxury homes have well-insulated floors, so you shouldn't have to worry about sound travel through the floors.
