Noise Reduction

Safe Sound Without Sacrificing Style

For Chicagoland residents who live in apartments or condos, you know all too well that noisy neighbors can disrupt your peaceful home. The same goes if you live on a busy street. Did you know the right window covering can do more than just add style to your home — it can also help reduce noise.

Aesthetic Options for Noise Reduction in Your Space

At Drapery Connection, we offer effective options that help absorb noise while offering impressive style and design choices:

  • Cellular Shades: Cellular shades are the first choice for sound and noise absorption in a room. The same honeycomb single cell shape and type of material that makes them great at trapping light also help them absorb up to 60% of the sound. Double cell and triple cell shades provide additional layers of sound absorption.
  • Fabric Roman Shades: Roman Shades would be a good second choice to help reduce sound, especially if you selected thicker fabric or lined fabric. Consider adding privacy or blackout liners to give the shades even more layers to help reduce noise and sound proof.
  • Draperies: In addition to the sound dampening nature of the fabric you see, Drapery Connection’s linings offer additional layers of sound and light control. Even interlining can be added to enhance noise reduction while beautifying any room. Since they are also made of fabric, drapes also deliver some level of noise reduction.

To add even more sound absorption, consider pairing your window coverings for added protection, such as combining drapes with cellular shades. The layering adds additional noise protection as well as brings multi-dimensional design to your window treatments.
