Best Blinds That Dampen Noise

In a world filled with diverse sounds, the charm of birds singing and rain on rooftops coexists with potential nuisances, especially when seeking relaxation at home. Whether residing on a bustling street, in an apartment block or dealing with noisy neighbours, persistent sounds can become disruptions, impacting overall health and well-being.

In this blog, we’ve created a list of blinds that dampen noise for you to have a look at and help you decide the best option for you.

Cellular Shades

Sound naturally travels through the air, moving between the inside and outside of your home. Cellular Honeycomb Blinds, with their layered cell structure, serve as effective noise-blocking window blinds. By utilizing multiple layers, these blinds dampen noise, providing insulation for your windows and blocking both noise and heat flow.

Cellular shades are durable, lightweight, and fully customizable to fit any window making them the best way to control light and heat. The side tracks of the shades work to ensure minimum airflow which in turn makes them the best insulators possible.

Double Roller Blinds

Roller Blinds are an attractive addition to your windows and if you double up your blinds you will create an even greater insulation value. Most people will have a sheer blind for privacy purposes and also a blackout blind for nighttime use. By doubling the roller blinds and using them together you double the capacity for blocking sound and if you also choose a blackout fabric your chance for less noise infiltration will also increase.

Roman Blinds

Roman Blinds are a great option if you want the look of curtains with the function of a blind. These blinds help to soundproof your home through their thick, dense fabric, helping to absorb sounds both inside and outside your home. If you choose a blind with a blackout lining you will also add another layer of sound-absorbing fabric.
