soundproofing ceiling?


We have an old house with exposed timber framing in the kitchen. Looks great, but would be even better if we could dampen the noise from the herd of elephants (kids) in the bedroom above the kitchen. Any relatively inexpensive way to soundproof the ceiling against this noise without adding an actual ceiling in the kitchen? Maybe foam insulation board between the floor joist timbers...? Would that work? Currently there is just drywall screwed into nailers running alongside the timbers. Whoever put this drywall in did a pretty ugly job and I am happy to have an excuse to rip it out and redo it.

oh. if there is hard flooring up there, putting in thick carpet will help noticably.
