Is it possible to get a soundproof bed? This is one of the popular questions active couples or people living in a noisy neighborhood ask in popular online communities. So I decided to dig deeper and find out whether throughout the history of bed making noise free bed has ever been manufactured. The type of bed you will need in this case should have the following characteristics- it shouldn’t squeak and at the same time it shouldn’t allow outside noise to enter inside.

Does a soundproof bed really exist?

The simple answer is NO. You won’t ever find a truly noise free bed. However there are several tactics you can implement to reduce noise coming through your living space to desirable levels. Additionally, there are some non-squeakless bed frames that can help you deal with the noise problem.

What you can get instead-

Deal with the ceiling and floor as well

Probably footfalls from the people living upstairs are making your nights unbearable. If that’s the case, there are options on the table to deal with this type of noise. First you can soundproof the ceiling. Secondly you can request those living upstairs to install thick carpets to reduce the amount of noise generated by footfalls.

Moving blankets and noise reducing curtains

Noise reducing blankets work similarly as soundproofing curtains. They are made of heavy materials and the rule of thumb in soundproofing is that, the thicker the material the better. There are moving blankets specifically designed for noise proofing purposes and for this reason, they have grommets to make it easier to hook them on walls.

One of the recommended blankets is the Audimute noise insulating blanket. Some of the most popular curtains that help block out noise include Nicetown Blackout curtains.
