If you live in a congested city, it can be difficult to find peace and quiet at home. The sounds of ambulances, steer traffic and noisy neighbours are something you can get used to, but they can be headache-inducing noises for when you need to work, study or just enjoy some relaxing down time.
Although it’s impossible to control what goes on beyond your own walls, there are some amazing solutions to combat noise pollution. One of the most common ways is to put on a pair of noise-cancelling headphones, which is a great temporary solution. For something more long-lasting, one particularly impressive device is the ‘Sono,’ which works just like a pair of noise-cancelling headphones, but for your home.
In extreme cases where you can’t move to a new place but are still desperately looking for quiet at home, wall panels are a great solution that work to absorb sound.
