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.
Felt Right tiles installed in my new art studio as a design wall. I am a textile artist, and this allows me to pin up works in progress while I am working on them.
I built a new home office with a tall slanted ceiling and quickly realized that the echoing would be a problem. I did a quick google search for solutions and stumbled on Felt Right. I made a design using their software (not super easy on a phone - recommend computer), placed my order, and it arrived a few days later. Installation was really easy and the felt pads serve as both a sound buffer, and a bumper for my office chair so it doesn't hit the wall. While I made one custom design, I ended up splitting it into two in my office. There is a lot of flexibility with what you can do once you get your design home. Highly recommend!
I saw Felt Right on Facebook ads. I did a lot of research and even consulted a buddy who does sound mixing for a living. He said this would be an great solution for my home office.
They work (and look) excellent! I could not be happier!
We moved into a new apartment and had two problems in our home office: a very large white wall and a little bit of noise pollution when my husband and I both were on calls. We stumbled on this product offering a solution to both. The ordering process was easy and the product was delivered quickly. The panels were dense and lightweight. The adhesives were easy to install. The smiley face notes telling us Sam packed our order was great. Our mountain-scape was 10ft long by 8tt high and took about an hour to layout on the floor, add adhesives to and place on the wall. Laser level and working in sections have us a really crisp result. We really enjoy the colors, ease of installation, and the ability to remove the panels when we move out of the apartment. I haven’t noticed much impact on noise pollution, though we’re still filing out the room. Overall happy with the product and service.
I have finally got the mountain scene installed high above my kitchen cabinets. I may need a few more on the bottom to "fill" it in. Looks great. I think it helps with the echo too.
We utilized the 12 inch by 12 in squares and placed them in various places within the office, inside cubicles and on large blank wall areas. It has definitely dampened the high frequency reverberation that was occurring in the office allowing everyone to hear better and not feel as if they have to speak louder. The have provided a much quieter atmosphere. Easy to install. Love the product so far!!
Great 4' x 8' design for large wall for writer to pin notecards to while planning out a story. Easy to install, looks excellent. Quick turn around between ordering and receiving. Will be ordering again, I am sure!
I have been debating about splurging on this wall for over a year, I finally pulled the trigger and it I was truly the best decision. I created a herring bone pattern to cover the wall in my office, it’s about 8ft tall and 12 ft in length, I’m a little short but I’m going to get missing tiles. After putting up this wall, I went to into a different room to speak to my husband and immediately noticed an echo, I’m now looking at putting tiles/designs in different rooms. These tiles absorb the sound and it’s absolutely wonderful. They have changed my work meetings, my sound is very even and my coworkers love my background, they all started looking at designs for their own offices. I have a French Cleat bracket on my whale and it was supper easy to install and hang on the tiles.
I wanted something with texture and color on the wall behind my TV, after searching and not finding anything I liked at the usual home stores, I came across a FeltRight add. I designed my piece easily on their website and they shipped everything the day I placed my order. I received everything within 5 days and was excited to put it up. I think it not only looks amazing, but was so easy to put up! I would highly recommend this to anyone that is looking for something a little different.
Installation was fast & easy! Love the product & the bright colors!
After over a year of working from home, my ZOOM Background needed an upgrade. Inspired by the Roland TR-808, I designed this pattern easily with the Felt Right system. Very Happy Customer.
We were looking for a much easier project than the mountains we had painted onto the wall in the nursery of our old home. This is a unique product, looks great, adds texture, and our son (3) loves it.
Fits the room well, easy to install. Overall very happy with my purchase!
Customer service was very nice and even added a coupon code after the purchase I had forgotten to use, refunding me for the total amount saved from the coupon.
I absolutely love my design! I have a reasonably long entrance hallway with high walls that open up to the second floor. I chose a pattern that adds a pop of color to the space and also draws the eyes up to highlight the open space. I haven't really tested the noise absorption capabilities between the floors, but I am hopeful that it will help a little bit. I love the process of creating the design, starting with one of the Felt Right example designs and then tweaking it to fit my space (extra long) and add more color. It was super easy to install, and I am not handy at all. I will say that removing the adhesive strips is not easy. I removed a few to change around some colors as I was going through the install process, and it wasn't a problem, but the thought of removing all of them from the whole design. Hopefully I never have to do that :)
I LOVE my installed wall! It really helped with the echo in my room and complemented my color scheme perfectly! I wish the photo was better, but I still think it is beautiful, thank you so much, I've recommended this to so many people!
