    They work by dampening the general sound level in the Living room or bedroom.

    They can also be used to absorb background sound inside a house, for example, the sound of your partner doing the dishes – or more likely watching the TV.

    The grey circular panels come in packs of 15 priced at £25 and feature a different shade of grey on each side. They can be put together in a variety of ways to create a functional but stunning wall hanging or room divider.

    The panels can be hung in front of a bedroom window to muffle street sounds.

    The sound absorbing frequency of the IKEA panels vary depending on how many you piece together. And where you hang them.

    IKEA recommends using at least 4 packs of panels and hanging them 10cm from the wall for maximum effect.

    Giving her styling tips Carol says, ‘You can easily hang them on your wall or from the ceiling. As well as being a useful room divider separating and subduing noise in the home.’

    ‘Simply piece them together however you like. Each piece has a different colour on the front and back, enabling you to create your own style,’ she adds.
