How to Soundproof Your Home Office

It goes without saying that there are many benefits to working from home. Generally, a home office gives you the freedom to set your own schedule and provides a healthier work-life balance.


At the same time, there are also some considerable challenges. Noises from the rest of your home, condo or apartment building, combined with any potential noises that are coming from outside, can create plenty of distractions.


If it gets to the point where your home office is no longer a productive environment for you, then it’s time to do something about it. Here are some soundproofing options for you:

  • Opt for heavier doors: the bottom of your office door can be rather problematic in terms of keeping noise out. A good way to deal with this is to swap out what you have for a heavier door. Solid core doors are a good choice.

  • Fix your floors: consider improving your floors. Carpet is a good option; a sound control underlayment is better.

  • Treat your walls: if you are able to modify your living space (tenants will need their landlord’s permission), consider a soundproofing solution like Resilmount Sound Isolation Clips or Green Glue with a double layer of drywall to block sounds from neighboring suites or rooms.

  • Don’t forget sound leaks: even the tiniest spaces/gaps can provide entryways for noise. Acoustical sealants and putty pads are both excellent tools for dealing with this type of situation.

  • Hang acoustic panels: these are a great, cost-effective solution for those who want to soundproof their home office. Opt for art acoustic panels if you want to add some style to your space while helping to improve sound.
