Nicetown Soundproof Curtains: Our Honest Opinion

Nicetown is one of the world’s biggest customized window treatment brands and they specialize in curtains production. In this article, we’ll be reviewing one of their products called “Soundproof Curtains.

Where to Buy Nicetown Soundproof Curtains?

I would have answered “Amazon” to this specific question if I hadn’t checked Nicetown’s official website. If you search on Amazon for “Nicetown soundproof curtains” you will get a ton of products and you’ll get confused between these products because none of them are well described.

In contrast to this, if you go to Nicetown’s official website you’ll see that everything is well organized and you can easily scan through all the products.

So, I recommend purchasing nicetown soundproof curtains from their official website only, not just because it’s well organized but you’ll get plenty of other options like size customization as well, which we’ll discuss further in this article.

Nicetown Soundproof Curtains Review

Layering

When it comes to soundproofing, the number of layers changes the whole game. The more the layers, the better the sound blocking. Regular curtains that we use at our homes usually have one layer which is very inefficient when it comes to sound blocking.

Soundproofing curtains from Nicetown comes with 2 layer variants which are as follows:

On Amazon, you’ll most probably get confused between the Blackout curtains and the sound blocking curtains. If you’re buying from amazon check for the number of layers in the product description, Blackout curtains from Nicetown have 2 layers while soundproof curtains from Nicetown have 3 or 4 layers.

Also, these soundproof curtains are all blackout curtains but all blackout curtains from nicetown are not soundproof. So, make sure you don’t end up buying a normal blackout curtain.

Material

Nicetown’s soundproof curtains are made of 100 percent imported high quality polyester.

According to Overstock:
Polyester is a common fabric for curtains, as it is durable, sturdy, and affordable. Polyester curtains are easy to care for and resist wrinkling, shrinking, and stretching. Because polyester curtains are so low maintenance, they’re perfect for curtain first-timers. If you’re moving into your first home, polyester is a great option.

3. Size (Length and Width)
As I said earlier, the size customization option is not available on amazon. In one our articles on “Do soundproof curtains really work?,” we discussed how important it is to purchase the right size of curtain if you’re concerned about soundproofing or even blacking out the window.

You also get a full measurement guide using which you can take proper measurements of your window. All you need to do is, send the measurements to Nicetown and they’ll build a customized curtain for you.

4. Lining

If 36 color options are not enough for you, don’t worry! Nicetown offers 3 color variants for Liner as well. Here are the 3 options:

  • Identical Liner Color
  • White Liner
  • Black Liner

Note: According to Nicetown “The light blocking effect of white fabric will be weak.

Thermal Insulation

These soundproof curtains provide thermal insulation as well. As these curtains are made of thick fabric, they help in keeping the room temperature constant by not letting the air enter or leave the room.

In winters, they serve the same purpose by not letting the cold winds enter inside the room through windows and help maintain the room temperature.


Blackout Properties

Nicetown soundproof curtains are also 100 percent blackout curtains. But one thing to keep in mind is that you will need proper size to fully block the sunlight entering the room. Additionally, Velcro Strips with Adhesive will be required to seal the sides of the curtain. 

Soundproof Test

A YouTube channel called “Soundproofing Guide” performed a test to check the performance of soundproof curtains. They used soundproof curtains from NICETOWN. These were the observations:

S. No.White NoiseNoise after installing regular CurtainsNoise after installing NICETOWN soundproof Curtains
(with open door)73 dB72 dB66 dB
(with closed door)54 dB57 dB51 dB
Nicetown soundproof curtains test

From the observations we noticed that for louder sounds soundproof curtains can reduce the noise by up to 7 db. Also, with closed doors (and curtains on) we observed a very surprising result with regular curtains, instead of reducing the noise regular curtains increased it.

So, it can be clearly seen that soundproof curtains alone do work very well with blocking noise. Along with it, the Nicetown soundproof curtain’s blackout properties are quite outstanding.

Who is this product for?

As we saw in the previous section, soundproof curtains from Nicetown do not perform outstandingly well when it comes to blocking sound, so you may not want it if you’re willing to fix a certain amount of noise using it.

The Nicetown Soundproof Curtains are for those who wish to blackout the windows along with a little bit of sound blocking. For example, you can use them in Hotels, Home theaters, Studios or Apartments where you can’t do much about windows.

Although these curtains don’t make a huge difference in sound transfer but still for the number of customizations and the color options they offer, if you would ask me I would definitely go for Nicetown curtains.

If you go for the four layered Soundproof Curtain, you get an extra Anti-dust feature. This curtain absorbs dust and prevents it from entering your room, which means you don’t need to worry about the dust entering through windows. These curtains are gonna absorb all the dust entering through windows.

Order Samples before buying

I love product samples and I guess you do as well. Samples not just help us in checking the quality of material used in the product but at the same time you can check if that product is gonna match your room’s aesthetics or not.

Nicetown offers 9 different fabric options in samples. In each sample you’ll get all the colors so that you could find a perfect match for your room.

Wrapping Up

Overall Nicetown Soundproof curtains are really nice but if you’re expecting it to block a high amount of the noise entering through your windows then you’d probably be disappointed. Keeping the weak soundproofing abilities aside, if we talk about the other properties like 100 percent Blackout, Thermal Insulation and Anti-Dust property, these curtains from Nicetown really stand out.
