King and Queens Custom Furniture
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.
