Creating the perfect balance between furniture, wall hangings and accessories is important for proper acoustics in a room with a baby grand piano. A baby grand piano will be the focal point of the room. All other furniture will be arranged according to conversational settings or listening pleasure. The size of the room will determine the decor around the piano. Once the room is arranged and the decor is finished you can sit back and enjoy your baby grand piano.

Place the piano away from direct sunlight or any other heat sources in the room. Sunlight will damage the finish and heat will affect the tone.
Lay an area rug under the piano if it sits on a hardwood floor. The area rug will help balance how the sound reflects and reduce vibration.
Select window treatments that can be drawn to open or close. Curtains will absorb sound and will need to be adjusted for the proper acoustics. Curtains can be closed to block direct sunlight.
Use upholstered furniture to absorb sound. Extra pillows can be added if needed.
Hang tapestries on a wall to absorb sound in a small room.
Set a large leafy house plant beside the baby grand. The green plant will be an attractive accessory to natural wood or a coloured finish.
Tips and warnings
- Use a room with a ceiling not taller than 12 feet. The height of the ceiling will affect the acoustics.
