soundproofing unused bathroom door
« on: December 10, 2005, 02:45:36 AM »
Hey there. I rent a bedroom, and it has its own door into the (shared) bathroom. I never use that door and it lets through too much sound, which makes me concerned about my privacy.

Given that I never need to open this door, and I can only treat my side, whats the best thing I can do? If I get soundproofing mat, will it help to cover the entire doorframe along with the door?

Thanks,
George

I have a similar issue with a bathroom door that is off my bedroom.  I do not use the bathroom door - it is the bathroom in my rental apartment that is on the same fllor I live on.  I don't yet want to replace the door with a wall.  Even if I did I wouldn't know what material would reduce the sound crossing through.  I am thinking of hanging curtains over the door on my side.

Your options could be as follows:

1. Replace the door with a SOLID CORE door that fits
   tightly when closed. No air gap at bottom of door.

                                 -OR-

2. Try putting a layer of Closed Cell Sound Absorbing
   Foam on your side of the door. A thickness of 1 inch
   would be appropriate.
