Living in the heart of the city can offer you all the conveniences. Well, almost. Yes, you can stroll to your office, the mall, the grocery store, the park, and just about anywhere, but you just can’t seem to get a good night’s sleep. The noise can be too much to bear. The sound of rushing vehicles and busy footsteps may prevent you from completely relaxing. The noise may keep you awake at night and wake you up too early in the morning. So how do you keep yourself sane in a home on a busy street?
One of the tips to effectively eliminate all the noise outside is to use noise-eliminating windows, such as triple-pane windows. Properly sealing windows, as well as using wooden shutters and heavy drapes can help reduce noise coming from outside as well. Other tips include using a fan or noise machine, background music, headphones, and even shrubs and trees to help dampen noise from the busy street outside.
