Hey all, I am moving into a new house and am trying to upgrade my studio setup. I am torn between two rooms and wanted to get some input about which would be acoustically better for recording and mixing. I've attached a diagram of the two rooms. I think I am leaning towards room A. It is a little bit smaller but it isn't a square and I feel the window placement might be preferable when it comes to mounting acoustic panels. Thoughts?

Could I get some more talent in the monitors, please?

Thanks for the input. I figured that would be the better option. Absorption panels behind the monitors and at primary reflection points and as many bass traps in the corners as possible?

Are you married?

Then you can have a small corner of one of the rooms that your wife doesn't have plans for

Oh rest assured she has a plan ready for any room she has at her disposal. I count my blessings that I actually have a choice between two. Apparently "using the master bedroom exclusively for music" sounds more insane to her than it does to me...I even tried to explain that walk in closets could be fashioned into neat recording booths. She didn't share that sentiment.

Yes to all of that. Also consider a cloud at the first reflection point in the ceiling, and a carpeted floor.

With a small room like that (it's not much bigger than mine), you'll need as much bass trapping as physically possible, and even then, it won't be enough. Haha. But true.

Remember, you actually have twelve corners - the four vertical ones between the floor and the ceiling, and also the 8 horizontal ones around the perimeter of the room.

Also set yourself up along the long walls or you'll have major bass issues.
