Although acoustics aren't at the top of the list of most design project plans or decor considerations, we all immediately - and unhappily - know when we're in a room that's too noisy. It could be an office where unwanted sound is literally undermining concentration and memory, and distracting from the work to be done. Or a restaurant that's just too loud for conversation - too many otherwise-great spots serve too much din with the dinner! Could be a home theatre where the expensive AV equipment isn't giving the promised quality of sound. In any of these situations and many more, acoustic panels may provide results -- and relief!
So, how do you know if a room will benefit from acoustic panels (or other acoustic treatment)? Easy - just run through this list of considerations!
