Sound Insulation

Adequate sound insulation is a key concern for any bathroom, but it's especially important for half baths near living or dining areas where you may be entertaining guests. This can be accomplished inexpensively by adding sound insulation in a shared wall or by wrapping water pipes, vents, and drains with a sound—absorptive material before closing up the walls.
