Bedroom Acoustics Advice Needed
Posts: 2
February 1, 2020 - 8:17 pm


I am considering moving into a new bedroom in my current flat, which has significantly less traffic noise intrusion from motorway approximately 500m away.

The dimensions of the new room are: 470cm Length x 225cm Width and 352cm Height. There are also big windows along only one of the side walls.

Here is a picture of the room and big window:

My main questions are: Once acoustically treated, will this room be suitable, good, or poor for producing, mixing, and mastering. Or, more generally how would you rate this space?

Secondly, will this room be easy to treat, and as such deliver good results?

Finally, do you see distancing myself from the traffic intrusion as an important move to make if I'm serious about achieving better results?

I'd really appreciate any thoughts or advice : )

E, You must measure the noise coming into your room and build the appropriate barrier technology.

Hi Dennis, unfortunately I think that would be very difficult in my situation as the entire wall facing the motorway is made up of large window panes. However it might be possible, would you have any suggestions on how to block out a decent level of noise coming through windows, without completely compromising the benefits of the window, such as the view, natural sunlight and ability to open the window.

Thanks so much,

E, You must measure the noise coming inside the room. It is a simple process done with a cell phone.
