Your home is your castle as they say and it is the one place in the world we can pretty much do what we like as long as you keep the curtains closed and you can play your music as loud as you like as well. The second reason is only true up to a point because there are many laws and regulations in place put there are by your local authority to discourage you from playing loud music at certain times of the day. These rules are in place to protect your neighbours and anyone else that lives around you, but it seems a little unfair that you can’t play your own music as long as you are in your own property. There are ways to follow the rules and to get to listen to your favourite music and it comes in the form of the right kind of insulation.
In order to get the best sound insulation (known as ฉนวนกันเสียง in Thai), you’re going to have to put your hand in your pocket and invest in some essential ingredients that will allow you to totally insulate your home from a sound point of view and not only will you get to play your favourite music really loud, but you also get to avoid all of the sounds that are coming from the outside. If you think that there is nothing to be gained by taking the time to have your home sound insulated then maybe the following reasons for doing so can help you to change your mind.
- Much needed privacy – It is incredibly hard if not impossible to get any kind of privacy nowadays and even though you are inside your home, you still get to hear all of the irritating sounds coming from the outside. It’s not the kids from the local school screaming and shouting throughout the day then it is the ice cream man coming around on a regular basis with his sound system blaring and penetrating the walls of your home. By properly insulating your walls for sound, you don’t get here any of these noises throughout the day or night.
- It adds value – Not only will you be able to take advantage of the above, but you will also be adding value to your property. This means that any money that you invest in it will be easily returned to you when you decide to sell the property further down the line. Prospective buyers are more likely to put in a bid for your property when they know that it has been properly insulated for sound and this is money that they don’t have to spend when they move into the property.
We all deserve some privacy in this life and if you can’t get it in the very home that you own, then where do we draw the line.
