Conquering the Open-Office Noise Monster: A Guide to Flexible Acoustic Solutions

Ever feel like your office sounds like a beehive? You’re not alone. Noise is a major pain point for many office workers. But in today’s hybrid work world, offices need to strike a balance: create a collaborative vibe while offering quiet spaces for focused work.

This is where office design comes in. Here’s how layout, materials, and special products can create a sound environment for everyone:

Planning for Sound

Open floor plans are popular, but they can be echo chambers. Consider dedicated quiet areas and strategically placing teams based on their work style (loud brainstorming sessions vs. quiet coding).

Taming the Surfaces

Hard surfaces like glass and concrete bounce sound around. Add carpets, rugs, and upholstered furniture to absorb noise.
