What Are Soundproof Window Coverings?

As the name implies, soundproof window coverings are designed to absorb outside sound waves to make the inside of your home quieter. They are especially useful if your home is in a loud neighbourhood, such as being near a train station or airport. These coverings come in a range of options, with curtains and blinds both capable of providing your space with the noise-cancelling capabilities you desire. Their practical use doesn’t mean they sacrifice style, however, as the available range of options means you are still able to select treatments that enhance the style of your home.

What is the Difference Between Sound Proofing & Sound Absorbing Window Treatments?

While sound proofing and sound absorbing products share similar names, they are used for different purposes. Soundproof materials are designed to reduce the amount of noise that enters and leaves the room, making them ideal for those who to live in a quieter home. They are also perfect for musicians, as their design means you can jam away no matter the time of day. Sound absorbing window treatments on the other hand, reduce the level of echo and sound waves in the room, making them ideal if you want to hear easier in your space. They do not reduce sound coming from in or out of the room, making them a poor choice for that purpose.

Which is the Right Soundproof Window Treatment for Me?

Unless you are looking to build a recording studio in your home, soundproof window coverings are the best choice for your home for reducing external noise. When it comes to the exact covering, whether that be curtains or blinds, it comes down to personal taste. At U Blinds Australia we stock a range of indoor blinds in a wide variety of styles suited to any home.

To achieve proper soundproofing, it is recommended to install wall length blinds, as their longer design means they are well-built for blocking exterior sound. If you don’t have floor to ceiling windows, consider choosing curtains instead. Our custom curtains are designed to fit your exact requirements and are available in a range of fabrics and colours. Curtains are also great for blocking out light, making them perfect for a home cinema or for light sleepers.
