sound reduction in bathrooms


I have two bathrooms side by side and there is a hollow wall between them. That makes hearing anything in the bedrooms trouble some when their in use. Is there anything I can do to fix this that's not very intrusive?

Disposable ear plugs.
Or...
They sell sound deadening sheetrock that you would install over the wall you have now. If you have recessed cabinets, this would be a problem and you'd have to make other arrangements.

sound reduction in bathrooms


In order to deaden the sound, you need to figure out which bathroom you want to rip down the drywall and add insulation. An empty wall is equivalent to a drum and will simply transfer sounds from one side to another. Fill it with fiberglass insulation or rockwool.

After you put up the drywall, you can consider adding another layer. If you want to really kill the sound, google for a product named GreenGlue and consider placing between layers of drywall.

NOTE: This is the method used for home theaters...
