Soundproofing in the kitchen

The noises produced when using a kitchen can be passed by structure-borne sound transmission to the adjacent room or the neighbouring apartment. Sounds like chopping or banging, putting down pots and hard objects on the kitchen worktop are transmitted through the furniture and wall into the adjacent units. Further disturbing noises occur when putting away dishes, pans, bottles or cans in cupboards, drawers and pull-outs.

Without noise protection measures, structure-borne sound is transmitted, through the fixed built-in kitchen and into the walls and floor of the building structure. The results are disturbing, easily perceived noises from adjacent flats or rooms. To avoid this, the fixtures and contact points of the kitchen cabinets have to be acoustically decoupled from the building structure.
