What are good sound-proofing options for a large room that doesn't have any carpet in it? I'm in an apartment building, so I can't afford to damage the walls. I also live on the second floor, so I have neighbors below me to worry about as well.

Two things that can help are adding some thick fabric curtains and some plush area rugs. It's not a perfect solution, but they're easy fixes that won't require you to make any permanent changes.

That's a pretty good idea. My mom is always telling me I need to spruce up my room, so a rug and curtains will serve a double purpose--sound-proofing and decorating! Very Happy

You could also look into an acoustic room divider as an additional way to sound-proof. I have one that I got for under sixty dollars. I like using it to further sound-proof a small area of a room.

You could also buy a pad to put under a rug that you're adding, or that you might already have in the room. They're pretty inexpensive. I found one on Amazon for under forty dollars.

Here's an example of one
