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 the product! It's so neat and square. I like to pin up blocks for a quilt in progress and this fills the bill perfectly for me. I even blogged about your product today (https://thehexieblog.blogspot.com/2021/03/questions-about-my-new-design-wall.html). I went simple, but I do love all the creative designs out there. Thanks for your product.
My office had such a tinny echo as the walls were bare, but the quality of the green screen is the best I've ever seen. The audio quality of my Zoom meetings was improved as well
We are all working from home and the sound is bouncing all around. When we added the Felt Right Mountains on the office wall it helped the echo immediately! We are now looking for other places to use these tiles, including at the radio station!
We have never felt so pleased!
I love felt right. They look stunning and are fun. So easy to install. They are great bulletin boards and such a great addition to my office. My co workers love them too.
This is such a great idea! We needed some sound solutions in our theater area and this fit the bill. Love the fact I could design my own to custom fit the space and our taste.
The product works really well, keeps the sound in the room and the echos to a minimum.
It was really easy to install. I would use 3 stickers for the triangle pieces rather than the 2 suggested.
works as expected!
The product is great but the customer service is even better! I needed replacement tape to put my tiles back up after the room was painted. USPS was taking forever to deliver them so I reordered since I needed them fast. As soon as I reordered, the original order was scheduled for delivery. I contacted customer service to see if they could cancel my 2nd order. I received a fast, cheerful reply, on a weekend day, that it was no problem and would be taken care of immediately, which it was. I was impressed that my small problem was handled so efficiently. This is a company who knows the value of good service. I was impressed! Thank you.
Love the tiles and colors. Made my music room much better visually and sonically!
Love this addition to my sewing room. So easy to put up and I think it looks amazing!
When I saw these, I knew they would be just what my husband needed in his new home workspace. I ordered the sample set so we could decide colors and see the product. Used the samples as a gift for art instructor. We then ordered enough for a space above his desk, and installed them in 30 minutes. I was surprised that even an area of 2'X 4' would have any sound absorbing impact, but it really does. We ordered another round to continue on to the next wall. This is so perfect for working from home!
Easy to put up and so nice to have next to my desk for notes. It also looks great, I love the colors!
We are extremely pleased with both of our felt-right products. They look great and help quiet the sound in our very lively rooms.
Excellent product. Install was quick and painless, even though I had to cut the majority of the tiles for the space. I was surprised how thick and solid the tiles were. It was the perfect solution for my office desk cubby wall, which I stare at endlessly these days due to the home office situation.
Stylish, easy to install, colorful.
I'm using my tiles for a design wall and a bulletin board. They were easy and fun to install. I had to rearrange the bulletin board section a few times due to my own stupidity, and the double-sided sticky squares were easy to remove and reposition with no damage to the painted wall or the tiles themselves. Regular cheap pushpins are fairly easy to insert into the material, which is high quality and will be much longer-lasting and better looking than a cork surface. I'm extremely happy with this purchase.
