Back-to-school season is a time of excitement for both students and teachers. But as an educator, this time of the year can be stressful as there’s simply so much to do. Have you taken the time to think about your students’ classroom environment? Don't worry if you haven’t, because we already have at Felt Right. Our customizable, sound-dampening felt tiles can instantly improve your classroom’s acoustics while transforming them into a warm, vibrant learning environment for your students.

In this blog, we’re taking a closer look at how our classroom felt tiles can enhance your back-to-school classroom décor. From K-12 to college, felt wall tiles can add warmth to your space and help students focus by absorbing a percentage of unwanted noise.

Back to School with Felt Tiles 

No matter your grade level or subject matter, the space where your students learn matters. Ample research shows that the physical space where your students learn will impact concentration, retention of information, and overall passion for learning. From the physical layout of your space to the colors and themes, there are different ways you can work to construct a positive learning environment with some creative classroom design ideas. 

If there’s one thing that all classrooms have in common, it’s four walls and a ceiling, right? So, be sure you don’t forget about your walls when developing your classroom environment this year. Our felt wall tiles for teachers can be the perfect answer for these blank walls that lack color and energy. Younger students will love the vibrant colors of our felt tiles and pinboards that liven up your classroom and create a more inviting and engaging environment. And since our felt tiles are pinnable, you can use them as a customizable classroom bulletin board to hang up student artwork, pictures, or educational materials like posters, charts, and graphs.

But their unique sound-dampening quality sets these felt wall tiles apart from other options. Since these PET felt tiles absorb unwanted noise, they can help students focus and concentrate by reducing classroom noise. This makes felt tiles ideal for any learning environment, from K-12 classroom decoration all the way to the college classroom.

  1. Sound-dampening qualityNot only can felt tiles make your space look better, but they can also make it sound better. Our wall tiles are made with a unique PET felt material that actually absorbs excess sound. Our felt tiles have a noise reduction coefficient (NRC) of 0.35, meaning they can absorb roughly a third of excess sound waves. And the more tiles you add to your space, the more noise you can absorb. That’s how our sound-absorbing panels can actually make your classroom a quieter space, helping your students focus and succeed.  felt boards for classroom
