Soundproofing existing bathroom

We have an existing powder room that adjoins the kitchen and family room.  Noise comes through the door (solid wood) and we would love to reduce it.  It is a small room with a wood floor and we could also treat walls if that would help.

Soundproofing doors is one of the most frequently asked questions.  There is an entire page dedicated to describe recommendations to treat the space between the door and the floor as well as any air gaps around the door frame.

Adding density to the door will further reduce the noise.  Use Mass Loaded Vinyl (MLV) barrier with adhesive backing to apply a layer directly on the surface of the door.  Measure and cut the MLV then remove the backing to expose the adhesive.  Apply the MLV over the inside surface of the door.  The inside surface refers to the side that the door swings open.
