Companies large and small can both run into this same, pesky issue: noise! Noise levels in an office are important to take note of. It can affect your employees’ productivity if there is too much unnecessary noise in an office, and it can be very distracting, especially in a smaller space, if you cannot keep noise levels to a minimum. Other than investing in earplugs for the whole company, what can you do? American Design Associates is here to help with our advice on the best interior design methods for reducing noise levels.
Start from the top
The ceiling, believe it or not, is instrumental in reducing noise in your office. American Design Associates can work with you to create customized ceiling panels that are specially created to absorb noise. Because the ceiling covers the entire work area, this will help keep the general level of noise in your office lower. Our specially designed ceiling panels can also work well in small, closed-off offices to keep the noise of the main and common area out, while keeping the motivation and concentration in.
Cover it up
Because you can’t very well instruct your employees not to talk at all, a sound masking system may help keep things as quiet as they need to be. American Design Associates’ sound masking systems create a constant and simple amount of white noise that is not distracting on its own but does cover up potentially distracting sounds of the office. Installing a sound masking system could mean the difference between a productive workplace and an inefficient one.
