How to enclose family room to prevent tv noise from disturbing sleepers upstairs?
January 30, 2013
We are planning to turn our formal living room into family room since we will be extending our kitchen/dining area into current family room. The dilemma is that there is a very high ceiling that opens into foyer/stairwell and upstairs. We would like to enclose the area. We're considering glass walls and bifold doors or placing wall where upper banister is (on second floor). Would love to hear more ideas so we can have more options.

Glass would be ideal for sound barrier without visually blocking the view. It works best if the existing handrails are removed.

That is a nice melding of our two ideas. We had thought glass where the two steps go into the sunken living room or wall where banister is so glass wall where banister is sounds VERY exciting and likely less expensive than filling that large space with glass! Thanks so much!!!
