Sound absorbing Ideas


I rented a house that has 2 bedrooms that are open or connected through the closet. I am looking for a cheap way to divide the closet to make the rooms separate and sound proof/absorb it a little.

Any ideas?

Re: Sound absorbing Ideas


What were you thinking of in terms of dividing walls and do you have permission to modify the rental home in any way?

Yes, i have permission to alter the house from the landlord. The bedroom I am has a closet that you can walk through to the next bedroom. So we can hear everything we do and even talk to each other. So, I was looking for a cheap or easy way to make it not so easy to hear each other. I do not want to soundproof, but make it so when I listen to music or play video games I do not bother the next room.

A heavy drape might work, especially if it completely covers the opening all the way to the floor.

Re: Sound absorbing Ideas


there is a very thin plastic like sliding door, it stops no sounds or even light from the other room.
