Noise keeping you awake all night? Read This!
If you’re nodding off at your desk right now after another sleepless night in your noisy home then I have good news for you: it will get better.
Getting a good nights sleep is one of the best things you can do for your health. In fact, it is just as important as eating healthy and exercising.
But noise late at night can disrupt your sleep pattern, leaving you groggy when morning rolls around.
There are several actions you can take to help with unwanted noise, and with simple measures you can ensure you’ll get a good night’s sleep no matter what is going on outside your home.
Take a look at these 5 great ways you can block out nuisance noise and soundproof your room.
Your first line of defence is a good pair of earplugs and sleeping with them in is probably more common than you think. Many people use them when attempting to block out external sounds in a noisy environment (such as traffic noise) or even a loudly snoring partner. It is a cheap solution with disposable earplugs costing less than £1.
Fit heavy, pleated curtains
Heavy curtains are another relatively low cost solution to help you soundproof your home. Choose thick curtains that are pleated when covering the window (not flat) as they will absorb more noise and therefore give you the best soundproofing results.
Rearrange the furniture in your room
Sometimes moving the furniture around in your current room can significantly reduce the noise pollution you experience at night. Move your bed as far as you can away from the noise and use furniture such as bookshelves to help muffle the sound.
Use white noise
Many people find the sound of a fan or static to be soothing and cover up other night-time noises that are keeping you awake. Today, there are white noise machines or apps you can put on while you are falling asleep.
Sound-proof your windows
When none of the above is enough to get you to sleep, it’s time to go extreme to get some serious results and noise reductions. Secondary glazing is acoustically engineered to act as a sound barrier and soundproof your windows. A massive 75% noise reduction can be achieved creating a significantly quieter environment.
