Love Music? Include a Room Specifically Designed for Playing It

Whether you're a casual musician or a professional instrumentalist, you know that the right space can make creating music even more enjoyable. There's something about playing in a room with the perfect shape and acoustics that really speaks to the soul and allows you to identify with your music. If you're in the process of designing a home, or remodeling your existing home, why not build a room specifically for playing music? Here are a few tips to get you started.

    • Don't overlook location when planning your music room. We suggest placing it above the garage or next to the living room, for example, rather than next to your child's bedroom.
    • For the best acoustics, place the room towards the interior of the home, and don't include windows -- this helps to reduce sound leaving or coming in.

    • The Greeks believed that the perfect proportions for acoustic quality were 1 x 1.6 x 2.6 (length x width x height). We agree.
    • Use an angled ceiling to reduce echo.

    • Avoid concave shapes, as these will trap sound.
