Soundproofing a single room
« on: March 20, 2007, 05:58:30 PM »
I've got a bedroom in a condo that needs soundproofing without tearing apart the walls.  It doesn't have to be perfect, i'd just like it to block any loud voices/TV noises from carrying over into the other rooms.  It's about 9'x12' and on the ground floor, so I don't need to soundproof the floor or ceiling, nor do I really care about the window.  The layout looks like this:

The only thing I could find was Acousti-coat paint, but I don't know if it's actually going to reduce the sound enough, and I certainly don't want to blow $30 a gallon just to add another fine shade of white to my wall without any noise reduction.  Any suggestions?

Skip the Acousticoat.  I don't think it's designed to do what you think it will. 

Since you don't want to 'tear the walls apart', add an additional layer of drywall with Green Glue.  Probably your best option.
