As many of us continue working from home, it’s increasingly important to create a quiet and productive home environment. Some challenges, such as dealing with loud and inconsiderate neighbours are out of our control. One thing we can do to prevent noise is to soundproof our home.
The estimated cost can be steep, as research shows that the average cost of a moderate home renovation for a 4-room HDB flat in Singapore is around $50,750. And getting professional help to apply sound insulation materials on ceilings and walls to reduce sound transmission can cost anywhere between S$113 m² to $248 per m². These renovation costs can easily stack up unless you’re planning to sign up for a home renovation loan.
