Nasty room to treat, need some advice.

Hello all,

I've been a long time lurker over here but now it is time to ask you guys some acoustic advice for my small studio.

I have an uneven room in the top left corner, there is a small extra rectangular corner made of dry wall to cover the ventilation pipe. which makes it hard to place a perfectly aligned bass trap there. On the upper right corner I have a corner where 2 windows meet. What would be the best way to place bass traps in these corners?

1. Should I make 2 bass traps in the upper left or one big bass trap that covers both corners?

2. Can I just place a bass trap in front of the windows in the upper right corner and does this bass trap need to be the same size as number 1?

3. Can I split up the bass traps, one part above the floating desk and another part below the floating desk? Or does the desk interfere with the bass traps?

4. Can I place bass traps in front of the wardrobe in any way, maybe on stands? Or does this have no function because it is not the real room corner? I can't place any vertical bass traps inside the wardrobe, horizontal bass traps might be possible on the back wall ceiling corners. Or maybe place some acoustic panels on the 2 wardrobe doors that are on the front rail?

The room height is 2.4 meters.

Thanks for reading.
