Sometimes it's difficult to keep the annoying sounds around your apartment—loud neighbors, street noises, and chatty roommates—at bay. So what to do when you're sick of the noise and desperate for a bedroom you can actually get some sleep in?
Fret not my perturbed friends; there's an effective (and Amazon Prime-friendly) way to silence obnoxious noises out for good—beloved by design firms and DIY'ers alike. Designed specifically to absorb sound, Vant Panels are upholstered accent wall panels that can be configured into a surprisingly chic (and super easy to install) DIY-style headboard.
Made with plush but durable materials ranging from micro-suede to leather, these soft stunners are available in two widths and a whopping 30 different color ways (including dusty rose and ocean blue).
And thanks to their patented simple mount system—which employs anchorless screws with extra wide threads that grip firmly to drywall—you can attach these bad boys to your bedroom wall in about five minutes; no anchors or studs necessary.
Plus, the layout possibilities are endless with these sound-stoppers. Turns out that you can stack these posh panels vertically or horizontally, with whatever fabric or colors you choose—making it a truly customizable (and noise-canceling) headboard. Not to mention that your layout will remain adjustable even after your initial installation, so you can add panels to your masterpiece whenever your bank account allows (or patience runs out).
If you get sick of them in the bedroom, you can even move these panels into other spaces to try some creative DIY projects (or if it's your living room wall that you share with the DJ next door). A glance at Vant's Instagram shows the panels being used in a dining room, living room, and even as a clever channel-tuft-style back for a DIY dining bench (a clever submission by @athomewithashley).
Ready to score some of these sleek (and soundproof) upholstered panels? Packs of four are priced starting at $179 on Amazon, so you can dream up your very own unique headboard scheme for 45 bucks a panel. And don't forget this find is also Prime-eligible, so you're technically only two days away from a good night's sleep (unless, of course, you kick out your noisy roomie before then).
