Transform your home into a peaceful sanctuary By Scott McGillivray

(NC) Everyday noise can wreak havoc on our inner peace. It can interrupt thoughts, our quiet conversations, and prevent us from truly relaxing. Furthermore, with televisions, home theatres, computers, video games, stereos and cell phones, our homes are also way too loud. So why not transform the house into a quiet retreat by soundproofing certain rooms?

When renovating, install insulation that will accomplish this for you. Used in professional recording studios, stone-wool insulation is an excellent acoustic barrier that effectively absorbs sound. For home use, industry experts recommend a Roxul product called Safe n' Sound. It's an easy-to-install material designed for use inside walls, ceilings and floors.

For the best soundproofing results, install the Safe n' Sound stone-wool material in your media room, washrooms, laundry room, and in your floor joists. By soundproofing a room it means that the sound is confined to that particular space, leaving the rest of your home undisturbed and your life, uninterrupted.
