Balcony floors are typically made of concrete, metal or wood and provide the perfect surface for sound to reflect and bounce off balcony walls or ceiling.
Other noise barriers like thick fencing or privacy screens can help reduce the amount of noise filtering through to your balcony area.
Curtains help absorb sound from coming into your balcony space and are a unique solution because they’re one of the few ways to provide complete floor to ceiling coverage.
If greenery is your thing, some plants are pretty good at blocking noise. They won’t be as effective as other options on this list, but they can still make an impact.
Allow noise to bounce off their surfaces and reverberate around the area. You can combat this by adding a number of décor items to your balcony wall that will absorb sound instead.
