Working at Home: The Importance of Soundproofing

working at home

 

If you find yourself working at home suddenly, it can be quite an adjustment. New routines, new setups and entirely new situations can be intimidating. As you transition into a new workflow, you can take small steps to alleviate stress from your remote workday with a soundproof office or workspace at home.

To get the best noise reduction for your workspace, you want affordable yet effective soundproofing materials. But first, you need to know the importance of having a quiet workspace – and how soundproofing could benefit you.

Working at home: The Importance of Having a Quiet Workspace

If you’ve worked in a noisy office before, you know how challenging it can be to deal with sounds when you’re trying to focus. Coworkers chatting, bosses asking for updates and other office noises can distract you at work. When you’re working remotely, you can face similar noise levels from different sources — whether you have kids home from school, pets needing attention or a significant other who’s also working remotely. Eliminating these noises or reducing them with soundproofing solutions could help you:

  • Focus on tasks: Whether your background noise comes from traffic outside or family members inside, it becomes distracting. You may find yourself wondering what’s happening or even leaving the room to see the source of loud noises. With a quiet workspace, you may feel more productive, focus more on your work and improve your concentration.
  • Reduce stress: Loud noises may generate stress or other physical reactions that could impact your concentration and health. When you’re working from home, the new situation may already cause tension. Minimizing noises and distractions can help curb your stress and sustain your stamina to the end of your workday.
  • Participate in work calls: Video conferences or phone calls require concentration. With loud background noises, it can be difficult to pay attention. While you could mute your end of the line, it’s best to take control of your space and make yourself look more professional.

Though transitioning out of the office can be difficult, remind yourself that working from home has some inherent advantages. In a larger office, you may contend with the sound of others typing, talking, printing, walking around and more. When you’re working from home, you have more control over the situation. You can ask those in your household to respect your work hours so you can concentrate. You may also have more freedom to implement soundproofing solutions, whether professional products or DIY setups, to reduce noise in your workspace.
