Walls and floors
The first thing you need to pay attention to is the coating of walls and floors of the room. If they are deprived of any decoration, a rolling echo is almost inevitable. To get rid of echo you can use a soft carpet. They soften the surface and absorb sound. So the effect of the carpets was the maximum, try to choose a model with a long NAP. The preferred option will be the flooring entirely. However, if this method seems too expensive, you may be limited to small rugs.
Not covered with walls are also a cause of the echo. Use to cover them with soft paper or fabric coverings. Try not to hang on the walls of large paintings, they create a hard surface that can cause problems. If you are using outboard electronics, such as TV, mounted on bracket, install it under the thick and padded panels, for example, of velvet. These panels will absorb sound and prevent the appearance of echo.
Another reason for the presence of echo in the room can be a large window. Try to make the glass of your Windows was something covered. Use, for example, velvet curtains covering the whole window and hanging to the floor. You can also use decorative elements from fabric, such as lambrekenom or grommets.
Furniture and accessories
A good way of removing the room from the echo is the use of high bookcases, filled with a variety of accessories. This helps to disperse sound and prevent its reflection. Try to fill this Cabinet with books, they will help to significantly reduce the likelihood of echo.
A large number of upholstered furniture also helps to cope with this problem. Try to furnish the room with sofas and armchairs in soft fabric, use chairs with padded fabric headboards, large floor cushions and various accessories (e.g. soft toys). Try to avoid upholstered furniture, made of leather, and there a wood or vinyl coatings. These materials absorb sound worse than fabric.
Conventional wall coverings, whether it is mild Wallpaper or fabric, may not give the expected result. In this case, you can use special acoustic panels to combat the reflections of the sounds. These panels can be manufactured from a variety of materials such as foam or foam rubber. They often have a corrugated surface, which improves their efficiency. Acoustic panels are usually supplied in the form of rectangular plates of small size and can be mounted independently.
