Window treatments provide privacy, filter light, reduce drafts and absorb sound. They also add to a room's décor. You can use draperies to highlight a beautiful window or hide an unattractive one.

Curtains can make spaces look bigger or windows look taller, wider or better proportioned. Curtains accentuate a decorative theme by picking up colors, patterns or textures of features in a room. Curtain hardware contributes to the look.

Benefits of Soundproof Curtains

Some curtains are practical, blocking light, reducing sound and modulating heat exchange. These draperies are often called blackout curtains, thermal curtains or soundproof curtains because the fabrics and method of construction that block light also deaden sound and add a thermal barrier. If you live in a noisy neighborhood or on a busy street, sound-blocking curtains can create a more comfortable living space. Use them in living rooms, playrooms, nurseries, home theater rooms, bedrooms and dens.

If you want long-lasting, easy-care curtains that add beauty, block light and insulate from sound and drafts, peruse Deconovo's selection of soundproof curtains. The sizes, colors and header styles are designed to complement all types of interior décor. Although traditionally used for windows, sound-absorbing panels can also serve as room dividers or partitions, effective for offices, kids' rooms or large living spaces.

Sound-Blocking Curtain Construction

The best soundproof curtains feature high-quality, attractive materials that maximize the soundproof, thermal and light-blocking attributes. Triple-weave construction blends three layers of materials into each panel. The front side that faces into the room is decorative. The material should be tightly woven and have a rough or uneven surface texture. Heavy-duty polyester, velvet, linen and burlap are a few types of fabric that look good and work well. The curtain backing may be a solid color of the same fabric, foam, vinyl, felt, polyester or other material that absorbs sound. The inner layer is made of densely woven black yarns that are light-blocking, sound-absorbing and a barrier to heat flow.

Layered soundproof curtains are made of two, three or four layers. In addition to the decorative front, they are lined, which enhances the sound-dampening characteristics. Some have thermal inserts and vapor barriers. If you have curtains that you like, you can add layers to create room-darkening, sound-absorbing window treatments. Removable inserts let you modulate light and heat according to the need.

Choosing Soundproof Curtains

As you look for soundproof curtains for your home or office, there are several things to consider. Soundproof curtains will not prevent all sound from entering or leaving a room. Instead, they absorb sound waves, which dampens noise and reduces reverberation and echo. The larger the curtain, the more sound it absorbs. Pleats and gathers add surface volume, which muffles sound. Curtains should be hung close to the ceiling, drop to the floor and extend well beyond the window's edges.

Here, we highlight five styles of Deconovo's best soundproof curtains.
