After a long time of hard work, you need peaceful rest in your home or office. But you can’t do that for disturbing noise that comes from the inside and outside of the room.
In this situation, you can apply acoustic elements in a specific place to make a soundproof tent. You can also use a soundproof sleeping pod or capsule for your home.
In this post, I have shared a special way to sleep in a bed without noise.
Yes, I am talking about soundproof sleeping pods and some people also call them slumber pods or sleeping beds.
It has one type of noise-canceling bed tent so that sound waves can’t flow directly through it. Before collecting this type of pod, you need to know important notes about it.
If you read these notes, you can know more about the right sleeping pod.
So don’t skip…
What are Soundproofing Sleeping Pods for Home?
They are one kind of sleeping pod where people can sleep. This topic is not science fiction and this type of pod is found in the marketplace.
These pods have other names. Such as napping pods, nap capsules, nap rooms, capsule houses, etc.
A sleeping pod has a technologically advanced automatic system so that you can sleep in it like a baby.
After working hard, you can boost your energy level, and improve focus after taking almost 20-minute naps in this pod. So you can maintain your sleep routine by using these pods. (source)
Are Soundproofing Pods Worth It?
Though this type of pod is expensive, you can improve your concentration, and working focus by using it. Some people are confused about whether it is actually worth it or not.
In my study, I will say that this type of pod has the setting to reduce sound waves. Besides, you can sleep inside it with less disturbance, because it can reduce outside noise.
As a result, you can take a short nap quickly. For the insomniac person, this system may help for quick sleep.
It has an auto temperature and lighting system (electricity), and you can get facilities from that system.
This type of sleeping setting can’t block outside noise but it can increase the comfort level and reduce noise so that you don’t feel sound disturbed during sleeping time.
Besides, there is also another soundproof setting that you can arrange around your bedside. If you are curious about this system, you need this full article.
Here I have tried to share some sleeping arrangements that you may need seriously.
Factors Before Buying the Sleeping Pod
You should read these factors before collecting this type of pod.
If you don’t get accurate facilities from the sleeping pod, it will not be better for you. So a good quality pod is necessary for you to get long-term sleeping facilities.
You need to inspect which type of pod is used by most people and has a better positive rating. You can get the rating information of the sleeping pod in the description area when you collect it online.
You also need to inspect the sleeping pads if the bed surface is soft or not. That is why you need to check the fabric type of it.
You need to check that your family members can also use this sleeping arrangement. That is why the selection of the pod size is also important.
5. Easy Control system for protection and safety
The pod that you choose, must have an auto-control system. So, you need to check which type of facility you can get from it.
A sustainable sleeping arrangement is also important if you want to use this for a long time. This term is also related to quality issues and you need to focus on this issue before collection.
Sleeping Pod or Chamber Alternative?
If you can not collect this type of expensive pod, don’t be upset. The good news is that there are also some alternatives that you can apply in your place at a low cost.
Now, I am sharing some alternative ways that you may follow:
1. Blackout and Soundproof Bed Curtains for the Canopy
If you have a canopy bed or bunk bed, then you can make a noise-reducing system. You know that box-type bed frames are adjusted in this bed.
First, you need to collect a blackout and acoustic curtain from any market and hang it on that box frame. You need to hang this curtain around the bed so that it can absorb some sound waves.
2. Windproof and Acoustic Bed Tent
You can collect this type of acoustic tent from the market. When you need sleep, you can use this tent for deep sleep. When you collect this type of tent, you should check whether the fabric is acoustic or not.
3. Indoor Tent with the Acoustic Blanket
The other option is that you can make a temporary small tent inside your room when necessary. For doing that, you need to use a soundproof curtain or MLV.
Now the question is: how to make a DIY soundproof sleep pod (box) or how to make an indoor soundproofing tent?
I have shared (below) some easy steps in this article.
So don’t skip….
How to Create an Indoor Tent with Soundproof
Here are the steps that you can follow to prepare a soundproof tent or insulated tent in your room. You can uninstall and install that tent at any time.
If you feel that suddenly outside noises are coming into your room, then you can apply this trick.
Step One: First see the image and inspect it carefully.
Step Two: Set a rope or string between two points of the room.
Step Three: Keep soundproofing room divider, curtain, or mass-loaded vinyl (MLV) over that rope (see the image). I think MLV works great for reducing sound waves. So it will be better if you can arrange MLV for this setting. Otherwise, you can use an acoustic curtain as an MLV alternative. Keep or place pillows inside this tent. Now you can sleep inside this DIY tent. (source)
Why Should You Soundproof Your Sleeping Tent?
When you take a rest in your room, unexpected noise may come from your children or new guests. So you can prepare a soundproofing tent for a short time.
This type of tent can’t block 100% of noise, but it can reduce sound waves which are also useful. You can block maximum noise if you can manage MLV.
More Ways to Soundproof a Tent
You have learned to prepare an indoor tent but there are some more important notes that you need to know for reducing noise.
Sometimes, you use a portable tent and you need to increase the insulation level of this tent.
By following some easy tips, you can be able to set up acoustic material and soundproofing accessories. They are:
1. Increase Insulation for Temperature and Noise Control
Like a sleep shed, you can add more insulation by overlapping the MLV layer which works great. You can collect MLV (acoustic panels) online.
If you don’t manage this MLV, then you can use the acoustic curtain to increase the layer of the cloth of the tent.
2. Place Acoustic Carpet
When you complete the setting of the tent, you need to place an acoustic carpet or underlayment layer on the ground surface of the prepared tent. This will block ground noise or floor sound instantly.
3. Keep a Portable White Noise Machine
During your sleeping time in the tent, you may use a sleeping machine that helps you by merging noise.
4. Use Headphones for Noise Reduction
This is also a better option to keep acoustic earmuffs with you. You can use these highly advanced headphones when you need a silent area.
This is how you can prepare a noise-canceling tent at any time.
N.B: If you want to reduce noise, you can use a soundproof sleeping bag inside the tent.
Other issues are that you may need to get extra benefits according to your budget range. That is why you need to know some more soundproofing tips that I have given below.
