Question: Does wallpaper assist in soundproofing?
Top Answer (31% of 69 votes): Rarely.

Answer: Rarely
Explanation: If the wall covering is a fiberous material such as grass cloth than it will absorb sound but is not a good source of “soundproofing”. Wool blend insulation such as ROXOUL is a great soundproofing material often used between floors and walls.

Answer: Rarely
Explanation: Only cork wallpaper can assist in sound-proofing but that is not to say that using this type of wallpaper will result in actual sound-proofing. The best kind of sound-proofing is 1/2 inch thick, compressed paper, wood and foam fiber boards that are placed behind the drywall, beneath your floor and above your ceiling. Wallpaper is decorative, at most. Cork wallpaper deadens very little sound. Ultimate sound-proofing is achieved by sound-roofing fiber boards.
