How to reduce office noise for a more productive workplace

6 practical tips for a more harmonious and peaceful work environment

It’s no secret that excessive noise in the workplace can be a significant deterrent to both productivity and employee concentration. Yet fortunately, there are practical solutions you can implement to help reduce the noise levels in your office. Here’s why following these basic tips can create a more harmonious and peaceful work environment.

1) Find the ideal noise level for your space

Firstly, it’s crucial to determine the right noise level for your workplace. Typically, a noise level between 40 and 50 decibels is ideal for tasks that demand concentration.

2) Incorporate soundproofing with style

Incorporating acoustic panels and sound-absorbing materials can drastically reduce noise levels in your office. You’ll find this approach – with help from Avenue’s stylish range of noise control – can also add a modern and fashionable element to your workspace.

3) Use soft furnishing to absorb noise

Adding soft materials such as carpets and rugs to your office space can help make the workplace quieter, while increasing comfort too.

4) Create quiet zones to aid concentration

Creating designated quiet zones is a useful strategy that can benefit employees who require deep concentration, or simply a break from office noise.

5) Mask office sounds with white noise

White noise machines can produce steady background noise that helps mask other sounds, thus creating a more consistent auditory environment.

6) Ask for advice from an acoustic expert

Lastly but by no means least, it’s a great idea to seek assistance from acoustic professionals who can provide a tailored and efficient solution to your noise problems. They can assess your office space and make recommendations based on its specific needs.
