Default Help or suggestions for sound proofing home

Our home has open to above in family room, the sound is so much louder upstairs, it has a small open space to second floor, we are considering closing it off. Any suggestions for sound proofing rest of home, I could hear conversations in basement, our bedroom doors also don't block any sound, feel like no privacy. Thanks

I also have this issue. We have a decent sized cut out in our third bedroom. We are definitely considering closing it up. I live in an Urbandale Pasadena Town and my goodness everything is amplified. Footsteps, converstations, and definitely basement activity (TV etc) can all be heard with clarity.
