How Calling a Contractor Changed My Life

This might sound completely crazy, but the most important call I ever may was to a construction contractor. I can remember the day as if it were yesterday. I had decided to rebuild parts of my home. This involved removing part of the roof, knocking down a brick wall and removing some electrical wires and water pipes. I started out just fine but then I started to have problems. I realised I was in out of my depth and decided to call an expert. The contractor who came around was great and he quickly fixed up the mess I had made. Since that day, I have had a keen interested in construction contractors. I hope you like this blog.

3 Top Acoustic Paneling Ideas for Homeowners

As a renovation contractor, part of your job is to propose useful products to homeowners, and acoustic panelling products fall in this category. The reason is that privacy has become a significant issue when renovating a home. For instance, homeowners prefer watching movies at home as opposed to the cinemas, but they still want to have a similar experience. Acoustic panelling makes this possible, but the tricky part is that the products come in different varieties. This article highlights a guide that contractors can use when proposing acoustic panelling products to clients.

Printed Panels

Acoustic panels are supposed to be functional and do primarily what they are designed to do: absorb sound. However, since homeowners renovate their homes with aesthetics in mind, it is not enough for contractors to propose functional acoustic panels. As a general rule, acoustic panelling products should add to the aesthetics of a house. This might explain why most companies are producing panels that can be customised to suit the homeowner's tastes. For instance, rather than choose panels made with plain cotton or polyester fabric, you can go for panels with printed images on the fabric. The images can be anything that the clients deem essential such as a portrait of their family or a piece of art.

Hygroscopic Acoustic Panels

Green buildings have been around for many years now, and most people find the term synonymous with recyclable. While this is true, green acoustic panels mean more than just recyclable panels. These are acoustic products made from hygroscopic plants such as moss. Since these plants don't have any roots, they absorb moisture from the environment, making the vegetation usable as low-maintenance acoustic panels that are arguably the most affordable. The best part is that, in addition to dampening sound and improving the general interior aesthetics, green acoustic panels also helps filter out toxins from the room. With this choice of green acoustic panelling, homeowners get three benefits for the price of one.

Acoustic Furniture 

Most homeowners think that acoustic panelling products are either hanging on walls or installed as permanent features on the wall or ceiling. Nothing could be further from the truth because today, acoustic furniture can be found in homes as well as in open offices. Unlike the traditional acoustic panelling products, acoustic furniture serves both as sound dampeners and as comfort accessories. Acoustic furniture comes in the form of high-backed chairs and couches and even lampshades. One thing that sets acoustic furniture apart from other acoustic panelling products is that they can absorb noise in various areas of the room.
