13 Tips for a Peaceful Home - How To Create a Calm Home

It is sometimes vital to isolate yourself from the bustle and extraneous sounds.

Are you a metropolitan resident and tired of constant traffic and noise? Do you want at least to relax at home from unnecessary information, but street noise, TV and neighbours’ parties prevent you from doing this? In this situation, there is only one way out: use your own strength and do everything possible to make your home a real paradise of peace and comfort. And a few useful life hacks will certainly help you with this.

Street noise and windows

Most of the street noise comes from the windows. Install new double-glazed windows with improved sound insulation — it is affected by the thickness of the glass. For efficiency, it is worth alternating thick (8 mm) and thin (4 mm) glasses. In old wooden windows, you can also increase the sound insulation properties: to do this, replace thin glass with thicker ones - 5–6 mm thick.

Open balcony solution

If you have an open balcony, consider glazing. This step will take your apartment's soundproofing to a new level. And useful meters will be added: on the balcony, you can make a study or a lounge area.

Front door

If you know when your neighbours come home and go by noise in the stairwell, it's time to upgrade your front door.

There should be no cracks in the doorway. To make the door fit snugly against the frame, use rubber or foam rubber sealing strips. It is best to stick one of them on the door itself, and the second on the box — so we get a double effect.

Soundproofing of the ceiling

A suspended or stretch ceiling will help against noisy neighbours who live above you. It will suppress sounds and create good room acoustics. And fibreglass materials will help in additional soundproofing of the ceiling.

Electric points

Electric points are one of the sources of extraneous sounds in the apartment. There are several options to get rid of the problem: move the built-in socket to another place, replace the built-in socket with a patch, or put a soundproof plug made of mineral wool inside the socket.

Loud washing machine

A loud washing machine should be left in the last century. New silent models have long won the hearts of housewives. Choose a machine with a noise level during washing not exceeding 50-60 dB. It will become a real boon for owners of small living space and for those who have small children in the house.

Buy a fluffy carpet

A fluffy soft carpet has not only the magical power to create comfort in the room, but also to absorb unnecessary sounds. It turns out that combining the useful with the pleasant is not so difficult.

13 Tips for a Peaceful Home - How To Create a Calm Home

Carpet for the floor, panels for walls

Just try not to be too extreme and immediately hang the carpet on the wall. Decorative soundproof panels are a good alternative. They are easy to install, minimise the area of the room and become an interesting interior decor.

Leg pads

Frequently moved furniture not only makes an unpleasant noise but also spoils the floor. To avoid this, use special furniture leg pads.

Contact a specialist

Don’t forget that you can always contact specialists. New home builders can help you modify or design a home that will suit all your needs.

Few more tips

If you checked all the things above, and nothing helps to find your peace at home, make a list of what disturbs the serenity:

  • Reduce the reception of visitors;
  • Lower the volume of the TV set;
  • Limit the time of computer use;
  • Prohibit children to run around the room;
  • Try board games.

Get rid of clutter and junk

Unnecessary things create clutter. This spoils not only the mood but also the premises of the house. When there is nowhere to squeeze through, all that remains is to dream of peace. Do a general cleaning, throw away unnecessary and not used thing.

13 Tips for a Peaceful Home - How To Create a Calm Home

Decide on a time and place to rest

At least once a week, or even more often, arrange a “family sleep time”, “a quiet corner for mom”, or come up with a “magic” word that will immediately let everyone know that it's time to give each other personal space and silence. Train others to respect everyone's personal boundaries. Start with respect. Not bursting into the room of a teenage son, but knocking. And the child will accept your innovations in the house.


Nowadays, it is very difficult to find a quiet place where you can find peace. You can, of course, fly to a desert island for a while, but let's face it. After a short rest, you will have to return to the atmosphere of chaos again ...

What can be done in this case? Turn your home into a peaceful place where nothing will disturb you with the help of our hacks.
