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.
Easy to install. Great addition to my sons room! Will be buying more
Love these tiles. Second time I’ve purchased. Really spruces up my WFH setup.
Beautiful! Functional! Good for the environment! Easy to install! Awesome!!
I was skeptical, but these tiles worked as promised and were easy to install, even on the bumpy cement wall I used them all. They make the perfect background to level up my Zoom calls.
The felt tiles are much better quality than expected! Also, I had a small issue when I got my order, but their customer service was extremely helpful and quick to get it fixed for me. Overall, I can't recommend them enough!
I love the neat and clean look. Easy to install. I wish things adhered to it as they adhered to the batting I had on the wall previously.
But it looks much better than batting hanging on the wall. The little blocks in the picture are not pinned. The larger blocks need to be pinned.
The tiles were super easy to setup on my office wall, and have really helped to both reduce the echo during my meetings and made my workspace much more interesting!
We installed these in our executive conference room to help mitigate the echo because we have open ceilings, concrete floors and lots of windows. The echo does seem to be lessened as a result the tiles. The installation was painless and pretty quick. I would recommend if only for the looks because they do look really good up in the space.,
I gave this as a gift. He was thrilled and it turned out wonderful. Product arrived quickly and was what I expected. My only suggestion for improvement is to iclude directions. I ordered the blue mountain scene. All the pieces arrived but no istructions or picture what its supposed to look like. My son went to the website to see what it should look like and was able to put it together but he is pretty good with things like that.
Beautifully packed for shipping. I was overwhelmed with how it was like opening a Xmas gift. SO EASY to install. If you need to trim a tile, EASY. I am absolutely in LOVE with this company and product. I designed my own wall art/sound proofing.
Great Product! Great people to work with!
I really like the way the triptych filled the wall and transformed my office. I’m in a lot of meetings working from home so the felt really helped improve the sound in the room too. My only gripe is that the instructions was just a poor quality B&W photocopy of the design so the shades of gray were not clear. Thankfully, I chose a design that was on the website that had photos so I blew it up on my computer screen and used that + a little winging it to achieve the final design.
I love the felt tiles. Easy to apply and looks great. I bought for my office as a zoom backdrop as well as a little recording nook.
My tiles came quickly and I was very happy with the color/design when I saw them in person. I had purchased them to make a "headboard" for my bed--my current one was not working for me (tufted standard style headboard) it held dust and was hard to clean.
From unboxing to done was about 40 minutes. Putting the adhesive squares on the back took the longest, but even that was no problem. I have physical issues that makes lifting anything heavy very difficult. These were light and sturdy and fun to use. I created a 5' x 4' basketweave headboard on the wall behind my bed. I am very happy with it.
I ordered these felt tiles for a little recording nook in my home office and also for a nice backdrop for video calls. They look great and my recordings sound great. Next felt tile project is a headboard for the guest bedroom.
