It just needs to be the right type, placed in the right location.

It's a question of standards.

Plus, 8 inches, plus the frame for the installation gets close to a foot deep, which means taking almost 2 feet off of the dimensions of the room.

In your other post you've got something that's 24 inches, meaning 4 feet off of the dimensions of the room. And that's only your corner traps.

For mixing in a bedroom you're going to have better results with headphones and extremely close near fields than an treatment that's actually practical.
