DIY – How to Lower Room Noise while Working from Home.

Whether you are recording a narration or youtubing, or just trying to lower the room noise. This is how I started making my room more sound proof so i can get some silence. Working from home has all the noise from my roommates or from outdoors traffic. I either have to record a night or sound proof my room. Full parts list below. Btw, my Youtube vlogs and reviews may also have associated affiliate links to products that may earn from qualifying purchases.

Here is a parts list of the stuff I used in this video:
Black Out, Thermal Insulation ,Sound Insulation Curtains:

Acoustic Foam Panel Wedge Studio Soundproofing Wall Tiles:

Convoluted Foam Bed Pad Mattress Topper 4 INCH:

Coroplast sheets 24 x 36:

Hot Glue Gun Full Size:

3M Command Picture Hanging Strips:


Microfiber towels:

H1N Zoom Audio Recorder / Microphone:

H1N Deadcat Furry outdoor windshield:

I started adding blackout sound insulation curtains ( ) and book shelves to increase wall space and density. I then added 4 inch Convoluted foam ( ) to absorb the sound from both sides of the thin interior doors and walls. This lowered much of the noise and talking from the adjacent room.

I could have used professional Acoustic foam panels ( ) but those the cost was higher than to cut a foam mattress topper. I also wanted it to be on boards so i can remove them if necessary to use on the table or another room. 3M Command stripes( are safer for temporary mounting without leaving adhesive residue. Using Velcro or spray adhesive will leave adhesive.


  1. Cut the Convoluted Foam Bed Pad Mattress Topper into 24 inches to match the Coroplast boards. 2. Use the hot glue gun to adhere the foam to the plastic boards.
  2. Follow the 3M Command Picture hanging strips instructions.
  3. Use alcohol and microfiber to clean the board and the wall or door you plan to attach to.
  4. Add the adhesive strips on the frame and mount to door or wall.
  5. Add blackout and sound isolation curtains to further deaden the sound in the room.
