Reverberation at Home

What is the problem? Woonkamer akoestiek
Reverberation is caused by using (too many) hard materials in, for example, your living room or bedroom. But the same problem may occur in your studio or office.

What is the solution?
The solution is to install soft absorbent surfaces in your room. The following questions may arise: How much sound absorption do I need? Where should I place this sound absorber? Which products are eligible? The answers to these questions differ per room and situation, but you will find them on this page!

What and how much do I need?
This differs considerably per situation, some rooms contain curtains and some rooms don't. Placing 25% to 35% of the floor surface on sound-absorbing materials provides noticeably better acoustics. Let's suppose your living room has a floor area of 40 m². In this case you start by applying 10 to 15 m² of sound absorption. Walls and ceiling in particular constitute surfaces that reflect sound and are therefore the appropriate places for sound absorption. The result of absorption material under tables or chairs, however, is minimal.

On our tips page you will find extensive articles that go into more detail about solving bad acoustics.
