Soundproofing a Door with Slats

The other day we saw a question on a form about soundproofing a door with open slats. According to the writer, it sounds as if there may as well not be a door to the room at all. The noise is unbearable to anyone trying to sleep inside.

Our suggestion? All the soundproofing in the world won’t change the fact that the door has slats. The cheapest and most effective alternative would be to simply replace the door with something more solid so that sound can’t pass through as easily. You can always put the original doors back up before you move out.

What would you do?
