While it might not be considered by most people when starting out on a business venture, soundproofing your business space should be an important consideration. Compare a music hall to a library: you want a lot of reverberation in one; on the other hand, you want the other to be quiet, so that much of the sound is dampened. If your business is selling privacy and quiet, you don’t want to end up with a work space that is loud and meant more for a vocal community. For that reason, soundproofing your business is a smart idea.
Soundproofing a room is accomplished by combining 4 different techniques: through the addition of mass, damping, decoupling, and filling air gaps in the room. Adding mass sounds just like it is, in that you are adding material to a room so to change the way that sound is transferred from one spot to another; damping is achieved by utilizing materials that dissipate the vibrations of sound frequencies that are transferred through the ceilings, walls, and floor; decoupling is similarly achieved, but rather than using material you are mechanically separating a wall to make it increasingly difficult for sound to pass through it; and by filling air gaps in the room is done by using materials to enclose areas in which air might have originally traveled in and out of a room.
These means of soundproofing are accomplished in different ways for each type of business, in which your company’s unique style can still be presented in a sleek, soundproofed format, primarily through the use of properly implemented decorative laminate tiles:
