What have you done to at least somewhat keep your floor from sounding like a kettle drum when you drop something (say binocs) in your blind? Is it as simple as a good carpet pad underneath the carpet? Do you put something in between say the floor joists and the floor?

Thanks
Charlie

Get a stall pad from TSC for the floor, insulate underneath.

I've just used a rubber backed carpet, got used from carpet store. The thicker the better. Blind bases are 4' to 8' tall.

Rubber stall mat from TSC works great. Easy to clean. Chairs still roll on it.

Glue the flooring material, plywood, to the floor joists. Lessens squeaks and creaks.
Most blinds the floor is in sad condition and just barely thick enough. If replaced use a thicker or several layers (glued together of course) and it will be quieter.

Been using carpet with rubber on bottom
It works well on keeping noise down especially with moving chair around

Acoustics on all blinds can vary, sort of like the difference between a kettle drum and a small bongo. Sound will reverberate differently. We used multiple layers of sheeting for the floor and finished it off with livestock mats. It dampens the rolling around of office chairs vary well.
