I have been thinking about my walls lately. I'm not sure how much absorption I'll need on my walls and how high up to run it but I'm going to bring the RTA home tonight and play around.
Here are a few mockups I've been working on that show the general idea of my plan as it stands now. I have been looking at the plan of hanging big absorbers on the walls covered in photo-printed fabric and I'm not as crazy about it as I was when I drew it.
Here's a new idea.
It's ridiculously easy for me to make carved MDF panels like this
So I'm thinking that I'll run 1" Linacoustic up the walls about 40 inches (but starting above the outlets since I have a metric butt-ton of outlets down there and I'll be damned if I'm going to frame out and cut fabric for each of them). Above the Linacoustic I think I'll abut 1" carved panels (3/4 MDF + the Z-clips = 1")
Behold (not to scale):
I was thinking about using FabricMate track and GOM to cover the Linacoustic. I will probably leave the MDF in its natural state but painting is certainly an option.
Soooo waddya think? GroovyWalls are actually easier and less expensive than GroovyCeiling which, frankly, I'm talking myself out of. GroovyWalls are a replacement for the GroovyCeiling idea. I LOVE how the light from the new soffit lights creates dramatic shadows on the sample I cut!
