It's all about Acoustic wall for making a new home interior

An effective way to add visual texture to the room

Have you ever been in a house that smells like musty curtains and old shoes? It's always spooky, and it can be hard to make your home feel at home. Whether you're looking for a fresh new look with paint colors or just trying to freshen up the whole space, acoustic walls are a simple architectural feature that can give your room an instant facelift.

© woodupp.deAcoustic walls are just that—a wall that uses sound (not air) to keep air and moisture in. These easy-to-install (even if you're clueless) sound insulators are perfect for any room in your home. But they don't just enhance the noise level. They also block out cold drafts from the outdoors, making your house warmer and more comfortable.

What are acoustic walls made of?
The idea behind acoustic walls is to use the sound of water falling from a faucet to keep air and moisture out. But if you're not handy with plumbing, painters, or carpenters, you can just go with a regular wall. Just make sure that whatever you do use reflects sound waves and adds texture to the room. In any case, you'll want to avoid:
Soundproofing latex paint . This is the most common type of soundproofing paint but it puts off a plastic smell and is expensive.

Sound-absorbing paint. Available in pure white, this product is effective. But without texture, it's not very visually pleasing.
Acoustic cement substrates. This solid material has the same "feel" as drywall and can be painted to match any color you like. It doesn't absorb sound, but it does have a noise-minimizing effect and creates a layer that reduces sound transmission.
Sound-absorbing prefabricated panels. These removable panels are designed to reduce sound absorption.

Akustikplatten tiles come in a variety of colors and textures, like wood and stone, and can be combined in a variety of ways. They are an effective way to add visual texture to the room, but they probably won't make the room quiet enough to use as a recording studio.

How do acoustic walls work?
The idea is simple. If you double the amount of water flowing through a faucet into a wall, the noise from the stream will be reduced to almost nothing. That's why using a water sound as an acoustic wall can create an instant mood change in your room.
Acoustic walls create sound isolation by blocking out noise from outside, like traffic and loud neighbors. When used with good installation practices, they increase comfort in our homes while also adding both aesthetic appeal and sound insulation value.

Sounds transmit through space differently depending on the surface. Water drips do not penetrate solid walls and ceilings, so they produce less noise in buildings than air currents. But water does travel through sound insulation materials, which can be used to divide a space into smaller, more manageable spaces. This is why acoustic paint systems are perfect for separating bedrooms from living areas in your home.

Water falling on a wall absorbs sound by reflecting waves that are contained within the water droplets. So if you have a running faucet on the wall, the sound will be reduced by about 30-percent. Also, the more water in the stream, the quieter it becomes.
Acoustic walls can also improve your home's acoustics. If your walls are insulated with foam, like fiberglass insulation, that alone means less sound transmission through your spaces. But acoustic walls help reduce this decrease even more by absorbing noise from outside and limiting it to sound inside.

Sound absorption is also important. You'll help keep your room quiet when acoustic walls are added to reduce the noise of neighboring homes. Along with sound insulation, acoustic walls can also help you achieve a soundproofing result.

To install an acoustic wall, you'll first paint them with a reflective surface and add an acoustical adhesive. The adhesive bonds the two surfaces together, so they're not visible from the outside. To make them soundproof, you'll use a non-splitting caulking that supports the walls without making them look like they need it. This will also prevent squeaking noises and maintenance issues. Finally, to remove any dust or dirt from your work area before starting on your project, you should use a vacuum with a soft brush to ensure that painting doesn't leave any unwanted residue.
