    I want to soundproof a wall

    wall between the room of my housemate and I is very thin, and it can be embarassing at times. Any way I can soundproof it? Can't do anything permanent as its a rented house. I've read all the tips that suggest using : egg cartons, mattresses, mcdonald cup holders, rugs

    but i need something that WILL work. don't mind paying a little for it. any ideas?


    its a small wall, possibly 3.5 x 2.5m

    how does he stack them?

    Build a framework out of 3 inch wide wood fastened to the wall. Fill the inside of the frame with loft insulation and then plasterboard over the top of the insulation, fastening to the frame.

    Insulation has no sound proofing quality, you need to use a denser product like Rockwool :thumbsup:

    Insulation board, just buy a load of sheets of it and stick it to the wall.

    Also stop having his mum in your bedroom may help the embarrassment

    Rockwool is a company, they make insulation.:thumbsup:

    you could get Gyproc Soundbloc plasterboards and fix them directly onto the partition wall. I think they sell them at B&Q.
