You’ve put up some soundproofing curtains and yet its still too noisy in the area at night especially and think there’s nothing more once can do besides putting up ugly blocks of soundproof padding? Well guess again! You can put up dual curtains rod setups to help out! As stated lightly before hand on the site this can be a big helper against sounds / noise you don’t want coming into your house.
The basic setup
Something like the following will get you started towards this awesome setup.
Once you put this up then you can get those soundproof curtains in place. With the double curtain rod setup you can do a few options. If super noisy and you don’t care about seeing light come in or rarely look outside then definitely go with two very heavy soundproofing curtain setups, remember if unsure look for blackout curtains as they will typically help out most with blocking sound. If however you wish to let light in a bit at times or see outside when it may not be as noisy outside then get a nice heavy curtain and a lighter one. Avoid sheer as this won’t help block noise at all but with a lighter non-blackout curtain you’ll still be stopping some noise but definitely not as much. Does allow also to let some light and possibly look outside even if just a little.
The best option on how to place your soundproofing curtains is mainly determined on who the heavier curtain or blackout curtain is. If both are of similar type then your choice and decision on which setup does the best job. However if one of the curtains focuses on soundproofing while the other doesn’t then put the soundproofing curtain closest to the window/door. This way more of the noise is blocked before it can continue through to the rest of the room. Another reason to do this is when you have the curtains open the soundproofing curtain is still along the sides where the most sound comes through and helps stop that.
If you’re still looking for a good light soundproofing curtain to put along side your more heavier curtain, highly recommend Best Home Fashion’s curtains:
