Just How Quiet Can You Make a Tiled Kitchen?

Asked by Aster (18860points) May 3rd, 2010

Our kitchen is IN the den and the entire area is tile. I have a wool rug in the dinette. Two pots fell on the tile out of the cabinet and my ears are still ringing. It’s a small kitchen. Would a thick rug help a little or a lot to make it less noisy?

Rugs on the floor. Objects on the wall, things in the corners.. You want to bring the sound deflection down.

Introducing any “soft”, absorptive surfaces into the space will help to absorb the sound.

Small oriental rugs are lovely. I have two in my kitchen, although my floors are pine and dent when something heavy falls on them

You may want to consider popcorning the roof.

Move with peace and grace – a kitchen with acoustic qualities such as yours will train the mind and body to nurture gentle activity and an inner peace.
