Sometimes the problems of reverberation after the construction or remodelling of a room are, unfortunately, very evident and annoying. In these cases, you need a thorough intervention in acoustic conditioning, which includes replacing ceilings and doors with acoustic ceilings and acoustic doors, and the incorporation of acoustic panels on the walls. On other occasions the solution is simpler and is solved with the use of decorative soundproofing panels in the form of acoustic pictures.
The use of decorative soundproofing panels is very simple. Once the reverberation is detected in a room you need to install elements that absorb the sound instead of bouncing it to our ears. Decorative soundproofing panels in the form of acoustic pictures, are in fact sound-absorbent acoustic panels customised with a finish or print. This means that they absorb the sound. So, just by looking for a gap in some of the walls of the room, they will mitigate the effect of the reverberation and significantly improve the acoustics of the room.
To get a rough estimate of the amount of acoustic absorption your room needs to correct reverberation you can use the Optimum Reverberation Time Online Calculator available at www.spigogroup.com. Then, you can contact Spigoart, the division of Spigogroup which manufactures decorative soundproofing panels, acoustic pictures and acoustic islands, where they will advise you on the most suitable panel types and sizes for your case. The last step is the simplest. Just decide on the design, photograph or illustration for your decorative soundproofing panels and hang them just like a picture.
