What are some ways that I can use to reduce the noise from the same apartment of a bedroom? The room is one door and wall separated from a shared kitchen, which is sometimes busy and noisy. I'd like to concentrate on study and sleep. I now play white noise from my laptop to drown the noise. The least expensive way the better, and I don't own the place and may only make minimal change and have more control of the room than the kitchen, I may or may not be able to ask the owner to make some change, but I'd like to hear all possible options. Thanks.

  • Is there a door on this wall?

  • First place to start is the door. Drape with heavy blankets. Figure a way to easily deploy and remove

  • add rugs, both to the kitchen and your room. A folding privacy screen with a blanket on it in front of the loud wall will also help greatly.
