Design your own home studio!

If you are a musician, and you have the space at home, it may be a fun project to design and create a home studio. Somewhere dedicated just to your music. A place that inspires you to practice and play. If you don’t have the space at home, perhaps some of these ideas can be applied to other parts of your home decoration! We all could use a little bit of music in our lives!

 

All Important Acoustics

Different textures covering the walls and ceiling of your home studio help to absorb and break up the sound waves, giving you a better auditory experience! Experiment with the acoustics! Go all out with these grass walls from Design Milk.

You could even get yourself your own custom Vocal booth, or try your hand at building one yourself!

Or you can try different kinds of padding to achieve better sound and protect both your family and neighbours when you “rock out!” It doesn’t have to be ugly, check out this stylishly upholstered door.

And have a look at this useful setup, explaining where to place your acoustic boards to improve the sound in your studio. You can find acoustic foam boards at your local hardware stores like Leroy Merlin or even have them delivered on Amazon.

Setup Tricks

These drum machines and keyboards have been cleverly placed on an IKEA Stolmen Shelf. A good and inexpensive solution to storing and using your equipment.

You can even try your hand at some wood work and create a guitar or string instrument rack with a few pieces of wood.

 

Decorate with Music

Experiment with this DIY hack of bending and altering the shape of vintage vinyl records. The possibilities are endless! From Shelves to lamps. Just using boiling water or by placing the vinyl in the oven, bend the vinyl as desired!

Storage shelves for musical odds and ends, or even a book or magazine rack!

We love this hilarious and fun way to store your musical cables. Jacks and other miscellaneous cables always get knotted up, so this is a fun way to decorate your studio in a useful way!

You could paint a music themed mural on the wall or put up music wallpaper or a vinyl decal like this one!

Or keep it classical with these framed music note sheets. Print out your favourite musical piece or song and decorate your home.

Or if you feel up to it, create a piece of furniture out of old instruments or like this light fixture, out of old drum sticks. Perhaps keep an eye out at vintage and second hand stores for old musical items you could repurpose. And now you know what to do if you accidentally break a stick as you are thrashing away your most complicated metal track!

 

And if none of these ideas inspired you to make your own studio, perhaps you prefer to try your hand at making your own instruments. Or you could rent one from us if you are located in Barcelona, and start playing!
