Sound waves vibrate the object they hit, producing more sound. However, when sound makes contact with porous surfaces, the sound gets trapped, muting a portion of the vibrations. Materials like foam felt and plastic can accomplish this reduced vibrational energy. Felt Right’s felt panels trap sound and reduce the noise in a given room.
You may not realize that many places already use sound dampening materials to improve their sound quality. Movie theaters, for example, line their walls with felt-like material covered in waves and bumps. This keeps sound in the theater where it originates and prevents it from bleeding into other theaters.
Libraries, auditoriums, and gyms also use sound dampening to improve their patrons’ experience. Reducing the vibrational energy within a room preserves its sound integrity and limits the distraction from outside noise.
Sound dampening is not the same as soundproofing. Soundproofing uses specific materials and techniques to prevent sound from escaping or entering a room. In these rooms, people usually can’t hear anything from outside the room.
Anechoic chambers have the highest soundproofing qualities in the world, absorbing 99.9 percent of all vibrational energies. In fact, these chambers absorb so much sound, no one has been able to last longer than 45 minutes inside. People describe being able to hear their blood flowing.
Most people aren’t looking for this type of sound reduction. Except for recording studios, very few of us need to eliminate that amount of sound from our environment. You’re most likely just looking to improve your sound control within a given room in your home.
Given the expensive nature of soundproofing, it’s impractical to install professional-level soundproofing in your home or office. Soundproofing requires extensive installation techniques and needs professional design. The average cost to soundproof a room is thousands of dollars.
One of the great benefits of sound dampening materials is their cost. Felt Right’s felt panels are constructed from recycled PET plastic, creating a thin, durable surface ideal for portable sound dampening.
Using these materials makes Felt Right eco-friendly for all of your sound damping needs. Our products help reduce soda bottles in the environment while creating a durable, affordable product.
Additionally, our products give you the option to customize your felt panel design. Create the design of your dreams and scale it to your room the way you see fit. Our design platform ensures that you can scale to your room, preventing you from spending too much or buying too little material.
Felt Right’s panels are also easy to install. If you’re committing to a DIY project, you want to preserve as much time and money as possible. Felt Right’s tiles are lightweight and small enough for anyone to install. They only use adhesive tabs and do not require screws, nails, or special tools. The adhesive is easy to peel, and you can buy more tabs as needed. Removal is also simple.
Most sound dampening products are functional, but few are both practical and visually appealing. Our customizable tiles ensure that you can add a new art installation to your home. With an array of colors and tile shapes, you can design patterns and shapes in limitless combinations. Dampen your sound while adding color to your room instead of having to choose one or the other.
Large Open Rooms
Large living rooms or family rooms can get loud. If you add children to the equation, they can become raucous. Wood floors are consistent favorites for these types of rooms. However, these floors tend to generate more noise and produce more echoes. Felt Right’s tiles can transform your long hallways and large open spaces with beautiful, sound dampening decorations.
Your study is supposed to be a place of refuge where you can focus. It should stimulate workflow and be a comfortable reading environment. Bringing Felt Right’s sound dampening into the study can add some vibrancy to your study without compromising its study-conducive properties.
Craft or Art Rooms
It’s easy to use Felt Right’s tiles as a pinboard in craft or art rooms. In these rooms, the sound may not be the primary issue. You may simply need an easy way to hang art pieces and crafts.
Creating fun designs for your child’s room can keep them entertained and ignite their imagination. Give them the space they need for a fun play area and help ignite their creativity by changing designs every once in a while.
Condos, Apartments, Townhomes
Close living quarters always make it challenging to preserve your home’s sound integrity. Whether caused by thin walls or loud neighbors, sound dampening may be attractive if you live in one of these locations. Felt tiles can help accomplish a quieter environment, making your condos, apartment, or townhome more enjoyable.
Whether you own a dance studio or gym, preserving your sound can be a crucial part of providing an enjoyable experience to your patrons. Implementing our felt tiles will make it easier to hear instructors.
It’s easy to use Felt Right’s tiles to cultivate a welcoming environment. Our tiles will make it easier for patrons to hear each other when conversing over a meal, and when your restaurant gets busy, your servers won’t always have to ask their tables what they said when they’re ordering.
Office Space and Call Centers
Felt Right’s designs fit in any environment where sound preservation is an essential component. When you have multiple employees on the phone or dealing with customers, you want them to communicate clearly and direct their customers in helpful ways.
When your employees are in close quarters, it can be difficult to assist your customers adequately. Background noise can distract your employees from directing the customers in the best possible way. Felt tiles are a perfect solution for any company looking to make their work environment more productive.
Video and Podcasting
Creating the right environment for your podcast or video can be challenging. Whether you’re just starting or have an established platform, it’s always beneficial to upgrade your sound equipment, including your sound dampening materials.
It was fun and easy to install and create with Felt Right.
Perfect for displaying my enamel pin collection. Easy to install, and looks nice on my wall!
Great product. Super easy to install. I love the fact that you can create custom designs!
An office remodel with a new tile floor and handball court acoustics needed SOMETHING. Felt Right was just the ticket. Here's a 17' example.
This is a first-rate product - perfectly uniform high quality felt that's ridiculously easy to install. Cut-to-fit is easy with new blades and a straightedge.
Even the shipping packaging is perfect.
After renovating an historic space, I was faced with echoes and a need to hang items at work stations. Regular cork a possibility but blah. Came across Felt Right and hoped they were not too good to be true. The spaces I had required retooling of some of their unique designs and I was instantly met with an online chat bot who was real and helped me create designs for my spaces. How refreshing on a Friday afternoon six designs done in 40 minutes and ordered. I received the designs within 10 days and they were so easy to hang. One design was missing a small square and that was sent immediately I could not be more happy with the look and the service! Will be using again, AND have already recommended this unique product to friends!
My new home living room had the acoustics of a shower room. I payed alot for my hi-fi. No good. I added furniture and an area rug, which helped alot, but still had unacceptable high frequency/upper mid glare. I bought the 6 X 4 shiplap kit and put it on the wall behind my listening chair. Great improvement. After making the measurements and pencil marks for installing it centered and level, the process went fast. Faster if you put the sticky tabs on the panels in an assembly line fashion instead of one panel at a time. Then peel position and press. Goes quickly. The panels are fully flat and dimensionally extremely consistent so doing a good looking job is pretty easy. Almost foolproof, but never underestimate fools. Anyway, exceeded expectations, looks great and pretty painless job. I will buy more in the future as needs dictate. Recommended product.
I wanted some type of wall art and since I have a large white space, I wanted to fill it with something. I was worried about how long it will last or how I can cut it to fit around the electrical outlets, but the outlets were not really an issue since I used the metal panel to guide the cut. It would have been much harder if the outlet cut was in the middle of a panel though. Cutting was doable, but it is hard to keep the blade exactly straight even with a metal ruler. I would recommend using clamps to hold the panel down while scoring first. Then, gradually cut deeper.
I notice a tad bit less echo. I never really had an issue with echo, but it’s an added bonus. I really just need it to be wall art that can turn heads. So far it is doing its job. Luckily for me, I can expand it a bit more on both sides if I choose to, but I think it is sufficient now.
These acoustic tiles are fabulous. I love that they are rectangular instead of square, and it is so nice that they are not thick foam. They just look so much better! Super easy to install.
We got the small mountains (which are huge!). They were super easy to put up. When we laid them on the floor, I leaned by knee on a black tile and it got smudged. We read cleaning instructions online and it came up with just a little water and now looks 100% black again!
These take up a whole living room wall beautifully. We bought two extra triangles and a small square to make mini mountains on our doorway to the hallway of our apt, too, which is great!
Installation was a breeze and it looks great on my wall. Definitely recommend!
It was very easy to install and we are extremely pleased with how it looks and functions. It really tied the room together and we will definitely be purchasing more soon.
This was easy, fun to design and install, and a good solution to a big wall space in a too-neutral bedroom.
We used a simple design to provide the perfect corner to store our weight bars. They no longer clank and the paint on the wall is protected! Winning!!!
I absolutely adore these, I love them alone with nothing on them but I got them to hang my enamel pins. I love how well they hold them while making them look so clean and neat despite how much I have on them. I already added more in my house and pretty much tell everyone I know to get them. Easiest to hang and protects my walls from all the holes my other pin boards put in them. Forever will swear by these. Thank you for making them, can’t wait to added more felt accents to other parts of my home!
We put this up in my new practice! My wife is jealous and now wants something similar for our home.
It was easy to install and when I made a mistake it was easy enough to start over. Very excited to see clients reactions.
