First up, you've gotta decide on the proper room for this project. Kitchens and bathrooms? Hell no — in fact, consider all wet spaces totally off limits. Guest rooms, offices or reading nooks? Yes, please. For my own little typographyfest, I chose a bachelor's attic which is used for quiet escapes. I'll tell you what would have made it even quieter: Having a handyman come fix the extremely loud squeaks from the old floor boards.
