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.
I love my new Felt Right wall! I found the design I wanted but needed to scale it larger. I chatted with a rep to help me scale my design and he was able to turn it around to me in less than 30 minutes. I made minor color change adjustments. I ordered it on Tuesday, it was mailed on Wednesday, I received it today (Saturday) and it took me and my son only 2 hours to put it up. It is such a statement piece in my mid century contemporary living room. It was just what I needed in that space!!
I needed a solution for soundproofing my podcast room. Found FELT RIGHT and couldn't believe how easy it was to order the tiles.
They arrived quickly and the installment was easy. I was even able to get a color that blended in with the rest of the room.
I am satisfied and will be using FELT RIGHT again for sure.
Thanks for a great experience from start to finish. The tiles are great and I was able to do the installation in under an hour. I even ordered one incorrect tile and Customer Service resolved that for me right away. Now I can't stop smiling at my new wall.
We have a room where we display several of my wife's moon photographs. On occasion we also use this as a guest room and it shares a wall with the master bedroom. We thought it was a perfect place for some creativity and sound proofing. This project was so fun and the tiles were easy to put up. We painted the background with a complementary color to the blue in the mountain and hung up on on my wife's Harvest Moon photos. It looks absolutely stunning!! Thank you.
My laundry room is open to my kitchen and the washer and dryer were always loud and would echo. The felt rights I added in the laundry room have made a huge difference! The tiles were so quick and easy to install.
I recently used this product in my quilt studio. I really needed to buffer some sound, but it is also doubling as a design board. Nice quality product... affordable... fun to design and and hang.
Love it. This was my third installation!
We just moved into a coworking space and needed a solution for pin up space. Felt Right was the perfect answer to not only help us through our creative process but also make a sterile space feel more like our own!
I adjusted the rainbow to fit the space in the public cafe/vending area of our library. I was able to cut the tiles around an outlet and thermostat using a utility knife. Easy peasy way to make a big impact!
Installation was a breeze and it looks great on my wall. Definitely recommend!
I made two custom ones for my new apartment. They arrived quickly and were easy to put on my walls. They look great. Very happy!
We love our felt right soundboard for our virtual studios. It added design and stepped up our game a few notches. Very classy. Check it out for yourself.
We highly recommend this company. Their customer service is friendly and knowledgeable.
Not only have I been impressed by these tiles, but friends of mine (particularly in the audio/podcast space) have been appreciative as well. I highly recommend your products and am a very proud customer!
I bought the shiplap tiles for a headboard and am really happy with how it turned out! These were very easy to install!
What I loved about these tiles is how quick the process was to get them up on the wall. I expected it to take many hours spread out over days to get the nearly 100 tiles up, but between applying the double sided tape and getting them up on the wall, it took just under two. And I can already hear less reverb in the room! What a great way to add decoration and function to a space.
