I hope I have posted this question to the correct forum. Please advise if not. And if this information is clearly provided somewhere else, please guide me to it.

I have been reading and researching this for about a year but it has been hard to weed out the misinformation. I want to right size this project, meaning that I want to be reasonable considering this is a guest bedroom in a residential home and do as much as I practically can.

I have a guest bedroom (12’x11′ w/10′ ceilings) in a single family home that I would like to make much more quieter for when my older family members come to visit. The problematic outside noise is air traffic overhead. Inside noises include kids being kids, TV, kitchen noises, wife stomping across the floor. LOL!!

Is there any general guidance with what to do to make the room more quite from outside noises?

Hi B, Noise issues must be quantified and qualified. You must know what frequency is causing the issue and how large it is. You must take measurements over a 7 day time period to determine what you are up against.

We have a seven day noise time study where you can take measurements with your cell phone. Send me an email to info@acousticfields.com.
