The Practicality and Pleasure of Soundproof Garden Rooms

by Best Agencies

A garden room has the potential to be anything you want it to be. From a spacious home office to a private gym just yards from your doorstep, the possibilities are endless.

But what if you have a particularly noisy hobby and would prefer not to annoy your neighbours? Surrounded on all sides by homes in close proximity, what can you do to avoid becoming a nuisance?

The answer – you could invest in a specialist soundproof garden room.

Soundproof Garden Rooms

Truth is, you do not need to have a particularly noisy hobby to benefit from a soundproof garden room. Something as simple as having a bunch of friends over for dinner, drinks and music can quickly become a boisterous affair.

Of course, anyone contemplating the prospect of building an outdoor rehearsal space for recording studio will need to take soundproofing seriously. The better equipped your garden room is to deal with the noise, the happier everyone will be – your neighbours in particular.

This is something that should be considered carefully before ordering your garden room. The most effective form of soundproofing is the type that is built into the structure itself. While it is technically possible to soundproof a garden room at a later stage, it is better to set up a soundproof room in the first place.

Something to discuss with your preferred supplier, who should be able to advise you on the options available and help you make your decision.

How Does a Soundproof Garden Room Work?

If you already have a garden room installed at home, there are various options available for soundproofing it. The DIY approach is technically possible, but it is advisable to consult with a professional before going ahead.

They will be able to advise you on the materials and accessories needed to achieve the desired result, along with how to install them.

In some instances, it may be necessary to upgrade the cladding on the exterior of the garden room, or fit additional cladding. Special attention will also need to be paid to the windows and doors of the garden room, as this is often where most noise escapes.

When constructing a new garden room from scratch, special materials will usually be packed directly into the walls themselves to soundproof them. In a similar way to cavity wall installation, the gaps inside the walls will be packed with materials that absorb sound. This may be something that can only be done at the time the room is first installed, so be sure to speak with your supplier about the options available.

What Can I Use a Soundproof Garden Room For?

Even if you don’t have any particularly noisy pursuits in mind today, a soundproof garden room offers huge flexibility for the future. For example, you could use the space as a home recording studio, dance studio, a cinema room and so on. You could even set up your own private bar, complete with big screen TVs and karaoke.

All without having to worry about annoying your neighbours, or doing a number on nearby property prices!
